We may get upset, fed up, or be unable to handle pressure. That does not mean we should run away from situations. My spiritual Master told me that he once was so upset with his Master that he went away and spent the night in a park. He wished he had never met his Master and said he would not return. In the morning, after sleeping on the bench, he went back to his Master. The lesson is that, no matter what situation we find ourselves in, running away achieves nothing. Confront everything, make adjustments and move on. People even get upset at God and lose faith when things don’t go their way. What do we achieve by that? We lose the One who watches over us—our friend and guide. Our egos make us run from things and we end up losing in the long run. — Satish Daryanani
