We all have inner and outer challenges which are sometimes beyond our control. We can come to a dead end where we really don’t know what to do. I suggest picking up the Bhagavad Gita and you will come to understand yourself and your situation more deeply.
When I had fallen down in life, I was picked up again by the teachings in the Bhagavad Gita. The Bhagavad Gita gave me the ability to analyse, understanding, and unfold my life in a better way.
There are 700 verses in Bhagavad Gita, all are important, however, the following verse was particularly empowering for me.
From Chapter 6, verse 5:
uddhared ātmanātmānaṁ nātmānam avasādayet
ātmaiva hyātmano bandhur ātmaiva ripur ātmanaḥ
Elevate yourself through the power of your mind, and do not degrade yourself. The mind can be the friend and also the enemy of the self. We are responsible for our own elevation or degradation.
The Bhagavad Gita teaches us how to come out of the problems of life, sorrows, delusions, attachment, and bondage by doing our duty efficiently. In the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna says that duty is what we are supposed to do in a given situation. Delusion, worry, and anxiety are obstacles to performing our duty, and arise when we are dwelling on negativity and falling deeper into the problem.
