Spiritual Solution For Tensions And Anxiety

Realisation and repeated memorization of the true knowledge is the only one solution for this problem. The ignorance is responsible for all the anxiety and tensions. One should know that every one has climbed the time (Kala), which is the running train. Death is the station at which one has to get down. Then every one should face the Lord for the enquiry.

After the enquiry one will get either permanent happiness or permanent misery. The journey of this train to that station is the human life, which is only a fraction of second when it is compared to the infinite stream of time set up from the beginning of the creation. To think that the life is very long itself is ignorance. Every one is sitting in a closed compartment and realisation of the truth is the window through which every one should peep to find the infinite time stream. Only on such comparison the human life becomes a small fraction of a second.

When the realization is absent and when there is no comparison the lifetime appears to be very long. First one should cross this illusion of time. Similarly, the illusion of the place. The earth looks very large under the ignorance.But if one realises the infinite space of this universe the entire earth is a small fraction of a pinhead. Similarly one gets a comfortable seat and sits on it thinking that he is settled in the life. Another person is moving in the compartment in search of a comfortable seat and according to him he is not settled. But when both these people look out through the window, which is realisation of truth, then both realise that both are moving. Similarly one thinks that his co-passengers are his close relatives and is worried about them.

But they get down at their respective stations and do not remember this fellow at all. Nobody remembers their relatives of his previous birth. If one realises that the so-called close relatives like parents, wife, children etc., are only the co-passengers who get down at their stations, he will not have any tension or anxiety about them. He does his duties without these two. Similarly when one thinks that he is his body itself, he feels that diseases damage him. But if one realises that this body is only a dramatic dress needed for his role in the present drama, he is not worried about the damage of the body.

He feels that as if his shirt is damaged. During the journey in the train one must constantly think about the interview and prepare for it. In such case he gets permanent happiness after the enquiry even though he is traveling in a comfortless third class compartment. If one forgets the interview and is attracted by the factors in the closed compartment, he is going to get permanent misery even if he travels by a first class compartment.

Thus, something is good according to the ignorant people and that is bad according to the realised scholars. This world is full of ignorant people and only very few realised scholars are present. Therefore the behaviour of a realised soul is criticized and mocked by the large public. But all the souls will realise the truth after the death when they face the enquiry. But it becomes too late by that time and nothing can be rectified. Thus, a realised scholar never cares for the public and proceeds in the true path decided by the true realisation.

Only such true knowledge can remove the tensions and anxiety. The path of devotion can make you forget the pain temporarily for some time. It cannot remove the pain and anxiety on a permanent basis. No other methods like rituals, worships, etc., can solve this problem except the frequent memorization of the true knowledge. True knowledge is the comprehensive outlook of the whole situation i.e., realised by looking through the window of the train. Ignorance is the limited look inside the closed compartment, which is related to the comforts of seats and the bonds of co-passengers.

Knowledge , Memorization , Ignorance , Anxiety , Tension are abstract words .

Will you please clarify me in a more concrete way by examples .

Suppose , A Person is very Poor and can't afford food and no one is ready to give him water also . He is hungary and Thirsty Too .

Please Clarify me , How he can get rid of his Tension and Anxiety due to hunger and Thrist .

Now , For him to survive what is more important knowledge or Food.


Suppose , at home you have only one loo , but some one using for long hours , In the morning you are very tensed and there is also anxiety to ease out and dispose of the waste.


What is important to you Loo or Memorization of .... .

How you can use spiritual solution in the above two situations .

A poor man is suffering and poverty is the punishment given for the previous sin committed by the soul. If such a poor person is helped, it amounts to interference in the administration of God. The punishment is given for a change and you need not sympathise it. The parental love of the Lord is greater than your brotherly love. Only the grace of God can end the punishment forever. Therefore you preach divine knowledge and devotion and then assist that poor person. The divine knowledge and devotion will bring a change in him and you have served the purpose of the punishment. Then God is pleased with you and also will show grace on that poor person. The poverty will vanish forever.

I knew it about your answer , but it is a cliched answer which every one says . What is your opinion . I want to have your opinion .

Please clarify me the second question ?

Please Please let me know What is Ignorance ? Ignorance to what ?

Ignorance is the abstract word . Please clarify me .

What is True Knowledge ? Knowledge of What ?

Do you agree that to relax from Tension and Anxiety , spiritual sex is also one of the ways .

True knowlege is that this wordly bonds are temporary, and the only truth is the permanent relationship with God, who is the father of all. To realise this is, the path shown by humanincarnation is the true knowlege.


Ofcourse true knowledge will be very harsh and that is why Lord told that one in lakhs only reaches Him. To be under the illusion that Lord is pleased with me without knowing the true knowledge is 'Cutting the foot to the size of shoe'. So let us know the TRUTH and accept in the first phase. Implementation comes later.
