Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Q. These days my wife keeps asking me why I don't smile. What shall I do? Dr. J: After listening to this lecture, you will smile because you will not think 'I, me, mine' all the time. Smt. H: The joy is in living for others. We should not say, this is me, this is my personality and I will not smile. We should learn to smile. It's not much to ask for. One should make a conscious effort. Be relaxed, think that God is great, accept her and smile. Q. How can energy come inspite of bad qualities?

Listen to the Audio: “The solution given here is to not use the word ‘I’. But we are unable to function without it. Like goats, all day we keep doing ‘Main, main, main’ (Me, me, me). In reality, we do many contrary things and don’t keep this in mind. Our mind gets so caught up that we cannot see good in others. This is a spiritual subject and those who are interested in spirituality, should think on this.” “The solution given here is to not use the word ‘I’. But we are unable to function without it.

Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Q. In corporate jobs, the deadlines never end. Sometimes you cannot avoid stress. How to deal with it? Dr. J: Don't extend yourself into corporate business. If you get into corporate business - more stress. If you remain at a lower level - less stress. Smt. H: Dr. Jayadeva's philosophy is very clear - more and more promotion, more and more stress, so don't accept promotion. It would help to learn the art of management. Any work can be done with or without stress. So we have to learn how to enjoy the work and not get tense. Tension comes when we are result oriented. There may be a fixed target, but what can you do? You can only plan and work every minute. Tension will not help meet the target. If the target is not met, reorganize and try again. Plan and systematize your work. The mind should be work oriented, not result oriented. And if you could concentrate more on the work, everything will fall into place. Q. Can you share some suggestions when there is emotional stress when there is disagreement between two or more people?

We have to learn how to accept.

Pratyahara is to go inwards. This is linked to our state of mind... it's a means to lean towards our consciousness, to exit the external world / stimuli by shutting down our sensory organs namely our eyes, ears, our sense of touch, taste and smell.
Our senses link our inner self with the external world. And they are functioning continuously without a break. We are always alert and aware of whats going on outside and interested to try everything, touch everything, desire to taste / to see everything that exists outside, the question to understand is, how much?

Listen to the audio: Check this out on Chirbit Q. How to be unaffected by the senses in this householder state? Dr. J: One easy way would be to buy ear plugs. It would save you from unnecessary talks. Smt. H: Being a householder does not mean we let go of all discipline. We must do things only when they are necessary. I always say in the pregnancy camp, when parents have a small child, the child will wake up many times at night. Now the child will need its mother as the mother will be feeding it. So the father need not wake up every time. If both wake up, both their sleep will be disturbed and they will start fighting. So the father needs to use ear plugs and sleep. Now householders should have clarity on how much each should be involved. Q. My husband enjoys food, especially one item. He wants to eat that all the time. I am saturated with eating this with him for so many years. Please advise on how to deal with this.

“Depression. Every human being goes through this phase at some or other time of their life. There are many reasons for depression, eg. business is going down, some near and dear one has died, someone close to you starts behaving differently, failure in love affair, you are dependent on somebody and they don’t bother, etc. If we are aware of the reason or cause, we can manage it by developing an understanding of the laws of nature, about human personality, seeing how the world runs and realizing that our problems are nothing and understanding that a person must do their duty in life.

“We need to guide our feelings in the right direction, otherwise they can go haywire and create chaos. Our feelings can be positive or negative. When we love someone, we love them so much that we do not see any weakness / negative trait in that person. On the other hand, when we dislike someone, we are unable to see any positive traits in that person. We have to understand that when we think negative, we harm ourselves first. Therefore we have to be extremely careful that we do not let any negative thought enter our minds. Instead, make a conscious effort to think positive only.
