Words from Swami Sadasivananda

Somehow we need to not see
obstacles as obstacles, but as stepping stones;
difficulties as opportunities;
hardships as learning, molding of our character and burning off the impurities created by what once we held dear but was nevertheless an illusion;
we are to recognize the so-called bad people as the saint makers,
crises of any kind as springboards and a way of expanding and growing,
presence of evil as a way of promoting and glorifying the good,
We are to see present as future,
our life as an eternal life.
Swami Sadasivananda

In order to do this,
Serve, Love, Give, Purify, Meditate and Realize.
