The Art of living. III

“You desire to know the art of living, my friend? It is contained in one phrase: make use of  suffering” ~Amiel

Another suffering in life is this:
We wish for something.
We try to get the wish done with all our possible efforts.
As the gap between the wish to haapen and the plan to achieve that widens, there is always this suffering called ‘anxiety.’ So this anxiety is suffering?
We are more anxious whether the wish will happen or not. People and books say ‘be positive’ ‘things will happen’ and all non-sense….but our anxiety remains.
Take for instance, there is a family trip planned for next week. This trip is to Mumbai. We made the reservation one and half month ahead by Train.
The waiting list for the reservation by train has not moved forward. It stands in 1,2,3,4,5,6 position even today.
Our reservation will be confirmed? Anxious.
Love the anxiety.
Suffer.
More than the trip, enjoy the anxiety.
That is what it is! – The Art of living.
