Life of harmony can be lived by rising above our limited egocentric view of things – Swami Chinmayananda

After carefully analyzing our weaknesses, the masters in the religious fields advise us to grow in strength and gain mastery over situations in life by living in harmony with them.

The life of harmony can be lived by rising above our limited egocentric view of things and happenings, and expanding our mind to accommodate a constant awareness of the totality of the world, the entirety of mankind and the vastness and wholeness of the universal problems.

When this total and consummate perception is developed and maintained, man’s individual problems sink into insignificance and absurdity.

When man views his problems from a purely egocentric and individual angle without this vision of totality, problems assume exaggerated and enormous proportions and crush him.
– Swami Chinmayananda
