Purification Leads to Progress
Wholeness: What we perceive as obstacles are stepping stones to progress “a strong mind can make best use of the surroundings and circumstances” (Maharishi – Science of Being and Art of Living)
- What we might see as mistakes and obstacles are simply the normal, natural, and necessary parts of the learning curve. “There is no greater kindness than the kindness of nature, which only moves one way to bring fulfillment of evolution and life to all these things in all their states of evolution, under all circumstances” (Maharishi – Science of Being and Art of Living)
- How you perceive “obstacles” determines your effectiveness. “The formula to produce maximum results is not to mind the obstacles and negative influences trying to offer resistance to the performance of action.” (Maharishi – Science of Being and Art of Living)
- When an obstacle arises, make the habit of asking, what am I supposed to learn, and what is the hidden benefit? “If one submits oneself to nature, nature begins to operate on him and all that nature does is for his own evolution and good.” (Maharishi – Science of Being and Art of Living)
- You can’t solve a problem on the level of the problem “Light the lamp and eliminate the darkness” (Maharishi, 10-20-04 Press conf.)
