By adopting some rules for the success of our lives, we will ensure that we move along the track of health, happiness, and harmony, says Suma Varughese
I have just finished a chat with a woman whose life is at sixes and sevens. Her relationship with her parents and sisters is contentious, and she has just left a job that did not fulfil her. She is confused, unhappy, but has no idea how to retrieve her life and put it back on track. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Life can often seem like a maze through which we scurry like frightened rabbits with absolutely no idea of the direction we wish to go in, how to handle the various situations that confront us, how to make the best of what has been given to us, and how to come out into the light. We feel trapped and helpless, unable to take charge of our lives. This is not surprising, because we are not born knowing the manual for life. As difficult and impenetrable as life is, it still requires us to tune in, in order to unlock its secrets. All the great scriptures, all the great poets and writers eloquently teach us how to live. But that knowledge is veiled to us until our time has come. But does that stop us from having to still live? And if possible, live intelligently, in such a way that we minimise our sorrows, maximise our happiness and aggrandise our wisdom and understanding. For that we must adopt some rules. Most of us have rules, but generally speaking they have been handed down by parents and grandparents, or teachers and books, which we cling to even if they are the wrong fit, because we are unable to find our own rules. But if we want a custom-made life, we will need to formulate our own guidelines. Rules are something to hold on to in the hurly burly of life. They can act like a guiding light that will show us the way forward even during overwhelmingly dark times. Many years ago, I attended a success workshop called Breakthru, run by Oneness University. While talking about the importance of having rules for success, the facilitator, an evolved soul called Acharya Samadarshiniji, gave the example of a lady who told her husband on the day of their marriage. “If you have an extra-marital affair, I will leave you.”
Samadarshiniji sagely observed, “She had a rule for the failure of her marriage, but not for its success.” Think about it. Do you have rules for the failure of your life, but not for its success? The great race car driver, Michael Schumacher, once observed that when in the thick of the race, he would never, ever bring into his consciousness where he must not go, because inevitably that is where he would go! Instead, he unfalteringly placed his focus on where he wanted to go. If we don’t want to end up where we do not want to go, let us place our focus squarely on where we want to go. In other words, let us create rules for good living.
