Facing Challenges

Today’s world where we live is full of complexities. Some people take these complexities as challenges. They face it boldly and counter the same. They consider these challenges as future opportunities. They don’t get afraid and sneak away. Because of this attitude, they ultimately overcome the barriers and find out the solutions and become successful.

When we face problems in our life, either we get puzzled or we feel energized to overcome the same. Some people term these problems as evil. Though they explain it in a negative way, it is actually the negative name of a positive phenomenon. You must consider the problems as problems, but not as an evil. No sooner, you think in this fashion, it will not be difficult to challenge the problem and find out the opportunities arise out of these problems. The best course of action is to challenge any problem so as to dilute the gravity of the same using your power of intelligence

The phenomenon can be further explained, taking the plan of creation of God. Based on this hypothesis, you can identify the intellectual difference between the human beings and the non living beings. According to spiritual practice and its tenets on which we have faith, God has not given any choice for the non-living identities. But He has given enough intellect to human beings to have a preference of choice. Man can choose his course of actions to perform various activities. He is free to choose anything, whether good or bad. It is this choice only creates problems, which needs to be challenged in a positive way, so that the problems can be resulted in benefits.

To challenge the obstacles, you need enough power of dedication and development. Self-development has no place in the world of non living beings as they have limited choices. Human beings, on the other hand, are born with unlimited potentialities of self-development. This development again is not that so easy to realize. It needs a lot of deliberations, perseverance, determination and desire to achieve the goal. When human beings are exerted to live with pressure or are forced to do many things or different types of works for the purpose of survival, they understand the importance of their potentialities, which most of the time will be hidden. Due to pressure, these hidden potentialities will be converted into actualities. This is really a difficult phase of life. If you say these difficult circumstances as evil, then it is the result of lack of understanding of the natural existence.

As per law of nature, everything falls down on this planet because of gravitational force and unless the same is being faced with a challenge, this sequence will continue to remain in force. This gravitational force is one of the main reasons for our planet’s existence. This particular gravitational pull was first identified by famous physicist Isaac Newton, who revolutionized the planet’s inhabitants with his famous law of gravitation. Before his invention, we all used to knew this as the Creator’s blessings. When an apple fell on the head of Newton, he started to analyze the cause and established the above law.

In reality, every one of us has unlimited capabilities. We have tremendous potentialities lying dormant, but we are not able to activate. The incident of falling apple could have been ignored by Newton just as a passing time. But he did not do so and the rest was history. To inflame the potentialities, we need to have a cultural shock treatment. We must need some hard facts, which will energize us to carry out with painstaking work to arouse our potentialities. Our mind needs to be properly used, agitated positively and then put into the work of thinking deeply on any subject to get an effective output. When we pass through any type of hurdle, do introspection, find out the causes and our mind will automatically unfold and we will be able to achieve a success path.

Let us recount the story of Mahatma Gandhi. After finishing his studies in law, he went to South Africa to practice law. He never thought that he would be a great freedom fighter one day. His mind completely got changed when he encountered one incident. He was to visit Pretoria and he purchased a first class train ticket and ushered into the coach. The railway officials ordered him to vacate the place as the first class was supposed to be the seats earmarked for white people. Gandhiji did not bulge except to find his luggage was thrown on the platform and he was also pushed out of the train. He had to bear the extremely chilled weather of the platform and ultimately, decided to come back to India and formed a group to start the freedom movement and that was the year 1920. After that, people spontaneously joined his movement with an oath to oust the British and Gandhiji became the emerging leader of the freedom movement.

It is very easy to bypass any incident treating the same as a trivial matter and just not to accept any challenge. Supposed a substance falls on our head, we may cry in pain, we may shout to the person, who has done this mischief or we may curse our luck for this happening. But if we take this fall and utilize the power of mind to act as a super mind, anything can happen in the life. Our life is full of challenges – small, big, trivial, non-related and sometimes, even of no use to us. But if we accept all these challenges as a new phase in life, we may achieve a great success.
