If your political party wins an election with a large majority, then no compromise is needed. The public has given you a green light to work on your agendas. It is like a mini dictatorship. Sometimes we need one person who can get things done. If you keep on compromising, the nation cannot change. We, too, have too many people controlling our lives. We are controlled by friends, family members, society, co-workers, and our crazy minds, which confuses us about which direction we need to go. Let the dictator take control. Obey unconditionally. This dictator could be God, your spiritual Master, or your inner voice. The dictator should have no attachments and should be neutral. Your mind is selfish and confused, do not listen to it. There is no election needed to choose the leader in your life. You chose the correct compass before you came into this world. This compass will guide you and you will never be lost in the haze of life. Unfortunately, we lose faith in the compass, and lawyers and financial advisers take over. Go back and listen to the sweet voice to which you used to listen when you were in your mother’s womb and you will never be insecure again. — Satish Daryanani
