The light that is hidden in us is the true source of bliss. If you keep the window to the world open, then disturbances in the form of anger, jealousy, ego, unhappiness, frustration will enter your mind and pollute it. As long as the window is open, you are going to get bothered by the world. Stop judging people and situation, do what is possible in the present and move on.
