Today’s post is inspired from the short story by Leo Tolstoy that I happened to read a few
days back. It struck me deeply. I will not write the story here but I will write about what I learnt and my interpretation of it.
What could be the three most important questions that you can think of to lead a righteous and fulfilling life?
Q1. What is the best time to do each thing?
Ans1. There is only one important time and that is now.
Often times people are either lost in the past and repenting or thinking and worrying about the future. The present does not exist for them. It has no value. Whereas it should be totally opposite. The past is gone and the future is far. Present is here. Now is the time to do what is desired.The law of attraction also works in present. If you think about past mistakes, you are reliving them in your mind in present and that is what is shaping your future. It will give you more of your past that you do not want and you will have no clue why the things you do not want in your life surface again and again. You think you are a victim and whatever is happening in your life, you do not have control over it. but the truth is that, the unwanted things are in your thoughts all the time and you are creating them unconsciously. Just a shift in thinking will change your life. You should think about the things that you want and desire. It is that simple!
Q2. Who are the most important people to work with?
Ans2. The most important person is always the person with whom you are, who is right before you.
There are no coincidences in life. All the people you meet, all the things you own, all the circumstances that you have , all of these are what you intended , consciously or unconsciously. The present moment you are in is the most perfect moment for you . So how can the person whom you are with in this present moment, be wrong? He/She is the most important person and you should have total respect and compassion for that person.
Q3. What is the most important thing to do at all times?
Ans3. The most important pursuit is making that person happy, the one standing at your side.
The most important pursuit is to do good, feel good, say good and want good for you and for all.
