Human life is at once a burden and a blessing

Human life is at once a burden and a blessing. It compels man to bear continual suffering. It gives man also a great promise of God-realization. 

Prosperity and adversity are the two eyes that we all have. Adversity leads us inward to correct and perfect our march of life. Prosperity leads us outward to illumine and and immortalize our human birth. In prosperity our inner strength remains static. In adversity our inner strength becomes dynamic. None can deny the fact that every step of progress which the world has made has come from both the smiles of prosperity and the tears of adversity. Adversity, like poverty, is no sin. One merit of adversity none can deny: it helps us to be stronger within. The stronger we are within, the brighter we are without. One who is afraid of studying  in the school of adversity can never hope for a perfect education in life. How often is our aspiration forced into play by dire adversity; but in glorious prosperity how rarely it peeps out. 

Obstacles are meant
To be surmounted.
Shun self-doubts
And be victorious.

Viata umana este in acelasi timp o povara si o binecuvantare. Il forteaza pe om sa sufere in mod constant. Dar ii ofera omului de asemenea si o mare promisune, cea a realizarii-lui-Dumnezeu.

Prosperitatea si adversitatea sunt cei doi ochi pe care ii avem. Adversitatea ne ajuta sa ne corectam si sa ne perfectionam marsul in viata. Prosperitatea ne conduce in exterior catre iluminarea si imortalizarea nasterii noastre umane. In prosperitate taria noastra interioara ramane statica. In adversitate taria noastra interioara devine dinamica. Nimeni nu poate nega faptul ca fiecare pas catre progres pe care lumea l-a facut a provenit atat din zambetul prosperitatii cat si din lacrimile adversitatii. Adversitatea, ca si saracia, nu este un pacat. Un merit al adversitatii nimeni nu poate sa-l nege: ne ajuta sa fim mai puternici in interior. Cu cat mai puternici suntem in interior, cu atat mai stralucitori suntem in exterior. Cel caruia ii este teama sa invete la scoala adversitatii  nu poate spera niciodata sa aiba o educatie perfecta in viata. De cate ori nu este aspiratia noastra fortata sa  actioneze datorita unei adversitati teribile; dar intr-o prosperitate glorioasa cat de rar se aude ea.

Obstacolele sunt menite
Sa fie depasite.
Ocoleste indoiala-de-sine
Si fii victorios.

Sri Chinmoy
