Conversation With Krishna

Me: I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic.

KRISHNA: Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you free.

Me: Why has life become complicated now?

KRISHNA: Stop analyzing life…. It makes it complicated…. Just live it.

Me: Why are we then constantly unhappy?

KRISHNA: Worrying has become your habit. That’s why you are not happy.

Me: Why do good people always suffer?

KRISHNA: Diamond cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials, but don’t suffer. With that experience their life becomes better, not bitter.

Me: You mean to say such experience is useful?

KRISHNA: Yes. In every term, Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first and the lessons afterwards.

Me: Because of so many problems, we don’t know where we are heading…

KRISHNA: If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. Look inside. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides the way.

Me : Does failure hurt more than moving in the right direction?

KRISHNA: Success is a measure as decided by others. Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you.

Me: In tough times, how do you stay motivated?

KRISHNA: Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to go. Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.

Me: What surprises you about people?

KRISHNA: When they suffer they ask, “why me?” When they prosper, they never ask “Why me?”

Me: How can I get the best out of life?

KRISHNA: Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.

Me: One last question. Sometimes I feel my prayers are not answered.

KRISHNA: There are no unanswered prayers. Keep the faith and drop the fear. Life is a mystery to solve, not a problem to resolve. Trust me. Life is wonderful if you know how to live.

(Krishna is the Hindu deity)
