The things we are stressed about:
- landing a better job
- earning more money
- finding a good spouse / partner
- having a good family
- going on a quality vacation
- being recognized in society
- working to fulfil our kids desires, even if they don’t reciprocate
Nothing wrong with these. Except that we usually spend our entire life, nay lives, trying to fix these.
The only thing the Guru asks us to stress about? Getting moksha or liberation. To keep that as a single pointed focus. And to act with urgency. Why? Because moksha is only possible with human life. And we are supremely lucky to have received a human birth, and that too one conducive to spirituality. Who knows if we will get this chance the next time around?
