We all have more energy than we think we have. We all are a lot more stronger than we believe. Only problem is this extra energy or strength is tightly packed in a container and kept hidden within ourselves.Like air-tight it is a thought-tight package. We don’t know that we have it until there is a need.
When we face a problem, we initially struggle. We get confused . We struggle hard with all the energy we think we have to overcome it. Most problems will get solved at this stage. But at times we realize that this is not enough. Everything looks big. We feel weak. As a result , anything and everything will shake us, irritate us, make us angry ,make us feel helpless .We never search for that extra energy pack,because we are too busy shouting, crying , shutting ourselves down, we don’t realize we have it.
Like any other container, this energy container of ours needs an opener. And this opener varies from individual to individual. For some people, all they need is some assurance from loved ones, for others a prayer can help. For me both works. Either B or my amma have to talk to me calmly saying that I can handle this situation . When it comes to prayer only thing is there are some conditions(for me). Accusing or shouting prayers won’t work. ‘Why me?’ kind of prayers can never find that package. After all the yelling and shouting,my prayer reaches a stage where instead of asking a solution for the problem I ask for strength to handle the problem .That’s it. The package opens!
Whether I solve the problem or not, I get another chance to fight with full energy. That matters a lot!
