Maha Upadesh of Aadishri - 15

We have to take various decisions in our life.  Some decisions are easy to take, some are hard and sometimes it is almost impossible to take the right decision.  Many of the decisions we take turn out to be wrong and we find that the quality of our life itself has gone down because of those wrongly taken decisions.

So rather than taking wrong decisions and then suffering the consequences for the rest of your life, isn’t it better to take the right decisions? Let’s see how we can do this.

How to live a happy life was explained by Lord Krishna in the Geeta and that knowledge I will again give to you since that advice stands eternally true. That advice makes your life meaningful, purposeful and therefore you become happy. Follow this advice and do not look left or right and you will reach your cherished destination. And your sorrow will turn to joy…

As I mentioned above, decisions have to be taken all the time and some of them may have far reaching impacts on you and your family for generations to come. The consequences of decisions and their perceived impacts scare the person who has to make those decisions and the mind of such a person is disturbed by the scary things that could happen as a consequence of the decision. Thus wrong decisions or the fear of making a wrong decision can shake your confidence and your sense of well being. For the person taking a fateful decision, literally a battle is being fought in his mind and heart. However just as a man who is running, cannot eat food, similarly a person who has a disturbed mind, he simply cannot take the right decisions.

Thus the first thing to do is to take decisions with a calm mind. That is the start to a happy life…
