Never look back for a moment - Swami Chinmayananda

The secret of success behind all men of achievement lies in the faculty of applying their intellect in all their activities without being misled by any surging emotions or feelings. Religion offers the technique of development of this faculty and leaves the choice of man to make or mar himself and his progress.

In order that we may maintain a healthy relationship with the world and not fall under the suzerainty of the exigencies of life, the maintenance of healthy and powerful mind-and-intellect is of utmost importance. This means that our emotions must be chaste and our intellectual discrimination subtle and clear.

Looking back into our past, we are helpless victims of our past actions but looking ahead of us, we become the architects of our own future. Human as we are, let us never look back for a moment but dynamically march forward creating a glorious future of magnificent achievements by rightly exercising the independent self-effort, which is a man’s prerogative.
