THOUGHT FOR THE DAY AS WRITTEN IN PRASANTHI NILAYAM – SEPTEMBER 03, 2020
At times we may feel weak and unable to handle the burden of worries? What should we do then? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us with His blessings today.
What is the shape of worry?
It is mentally created fear only.
By nature, the mind is fickle. How can worries, which are the creation of this fickle mind, be permanent?
Each worry is like a naya paisa. One rupee is equal to 100 naya paisas, and 100 rupees are equal to 10,000 naya paisas. When you make a bundle of 10,000 naya paisas, it is quite heavy and not easy to carry.
Therefore, the Lord says, give me those 10,000 naya paisas and I will give you a 100 rupee note, which is very light, is easy to carry, and can safely be preserved.
It is rather difficult to safeguard the big bundle of 10,000 naya paisas. It is all the more difficult to carry it and protect it from others.
Hence, the Lord exhorts one, “My dear, surrender to Me the bundle of your worries.”
Therefore, pass on this burden to the Lord.
