Listen to the Audio: Check this out on Chirbit “When you know that something you are saying is false and wrong, you should not say that. But we have no courage. We have other considerations and so we have got into the habit of telling things that can help us in getting is out of a bad situation. So we have included a lot of untruth, cheating and what not. A man who speaks truth is a man with a conviction. He is not bothered whether a certain statement will help him or hurt him. He is just concerned with whatever is the fact and he will speak out the correct thing, the right thing, the truth. Now we have slowly come out of that and we keep on telling things that give us immediate benefits. All are untruth. And we are carrying on. But this has become a habit.

"We have to sit down and quietly think about 'What do I value in my life?' When we begin our life, we deal with situations according to the existing circumstances then, we take opportunities where we find them, following what others are doing blindly - if someone is lying or cheating to get rid of a situation, we do the same in a similar situation, thinking it is alright to do so if everyone is also doing the same. We follow what our parents do and how our siblings behave; we see and learn from the people around us and this is how we live our life. We forget that each of us is different. When I look closely at people, I see everyone running after happiness, let’s understand that happiness and pain flow together. Where there is happiness, there will be pain too. Therefore, yoga philosophy suggests we develop some clarity on how we want to live our lives. What should I give more importance to in my life? The importance should be given to that which helps me lead a better life today as compared to yesterday, or a better tomorrow as compared to today – this would be the path of self-development.
