Come Outside the Room of Worry

Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati

If you sit in a room and complain that you do not receive sunlight, then what is the solution? Nobody can bring the sunlight inside the room for you.

If you want to sit in the sunlight then leave the room and go outside. If you want to leave tension then leave the room of tension. If you want to leave worry then leave the room of worry. Once you leave worry and tension and come outside, there is another light, another room, another experience.

Once your desires, your worries and tensions are gone, the mind becomes carefree. The one who does not need anything is the real king and emperor.

Worries and tension creep in when you need everything, however the person who does not need anything has no reason to worry, become tense or anxious.
