Man leave the past in the past. That’s where it belongs. The trouble with addicts is that they carry bad memories around with them – like old luggage. And in that luggage that’s where they carry their blueprint for living. You got to decide what’s worth keeping, and then set the rest of it on the curb for the garbage.
The past is important because it builds the foundation where future blossoms. But we can’t stick to a seed as it is essential to grow the former in a plant. We should, must and have to focus on the present. Why ? Because that’s what in our manipulative control. As it’s written in Bhagwad Gita “you have the right to work only. But you are not entitled to the fruits of action”
Yesterday, I read a book referring to the conversation between Ishwar Chand Vidyasagar and Sri Ramakrishna paramhans where Vidyasagar questioned the sage about the existence of the thing called god with a opinion to deny it’s existence. In the same book but the other chapter, Swami Vivekananda (the disciple of Ramkrishna) said that if people get killed while going to holy places, they are killed for a purpose and intention which can only be understood by God. I say that Swami Vivekananda should answer a not-so complex answer which he really did in the book
He said Changez Khan acted sin but his intentions were good like lord Krishna.
Sometimes we do things with “niyyat” (the purity of intentions) but the actions done for fulfilling these intentions goes wrong. So does that make us a villain or visionary ?
I just wanna know your thoughts about this. Which is more important. Our actions or our intentions behind the actions ? If you say equally then I think you got it wrong because humans does not and never will possess equal everything
