We all go through ups and downs in life, which can affect our minds. We can go for professional help to talk about this and end up taking medication. The outside situation may not have changed but, we have temporarily tried to balance the mind. Many people eat correctly, exercise and take care of their health to build up the immune system so they don’t get sick. Similarly, we must keep our minds in shape so the forces of nature do not disturb us. Those who work on their minds by sitting in silence, contemplating on the teachings and realizing what life is can handle these ups and downs. They don’t need outside help as they are already well balanced. We say prevention is better than cure, but prevention is not only for the body, it is also for the mind. Mind your mind and nothing can affect your mind. Satish Daryanani
