Battles of the Mind

How often has it been that we were disappointed that things did not go our way, frustrated that we could not achieve what we planned to? These being plans we had for our future and yet, we have a sense of failure as we could not accomplish them.

During these moments, we fail to realise that God, our Creator, has a plan chalked out for each one of us, depending on our capabilities, keeping in mind, our strengths and weaknesses.. Plan for our well-being, our welfare and not for our destruction.

Yet, we are under the impression that we are out here, to achieve, to prove ourselves. . and hence we go about waging our own battles, Battles of the Mind, which is far more strenuous, far more tiring and far more destructive than any Battlefield. And what is the Outcome of such Battles? We only end up being more frustrated, helpless and restless.

I am sure, all of us are aware of the Battles we fight in our minds, daily.., but are we ready to do something about them? Do something to resolve such cases? All the time, we are trying to avoid confronting such a situation or we are busy trying to change the situation, but the fact is Situations did not change, they will not change.

On the contrary it is we who need to change the way we look at the situation, no point in getting frustrated over the same issue over and over. Instead, look at the situation on a Long term platter. , then we realise that in the long run, it would turn out to be something wonderful, but most often, this is beyond our Understanding. Hence, we need to ask of our Creator to give us the Grace to understand His Mighty plan for our lives, only then will we be able to lead our lives peacefully without following the cloud of Depression everyday.

Just once if we make up our minds, to listen and understand His plan for us, we would be totally different Individuals, altogether.

hi,
i totally agree with what u say but dont yu think that the frustration is what makes us human and sometimes even with the knowledge tha twe donot understand the larger scheme of things and we need to have patience to wait and see what and why certain things are happening the way they are we loose it.

its not a debate it is just a thought that although we try hard to have the patience we loose it sometimes and make thing s miserable for ourselves.

Good one keep going.
