We have the power to create ourselves

we have the power to create our-selves.
we have the power to create ourselves.

The great monk Swami Vivekananda had explained the secret and power of work in his complete work. In a chapter on work, he had written the following lines.

No one can get anything until he earns it.this is an eternal law. We may sometimes think it is not so,but in the long run we become convinced of it. A man may struggle all his life for riches; he may cheat thousands ,but he finds at last that he does not deserve to become rich, and his life become a trouble and nuisance to him. We may go on accumulating things for our physical enjoyment, but only what we earn is really ours. A fool may buy all the books in the world, and they will be in his library; but he will be able to read only those which he deserves to; and this deserving is produced by work.

Our work determines what we deserve and what we can assimilate. We are responsible for what we are; and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves.

What we are now is the result of our past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions.

You must remember that all work is simply to bring out the power of the mind which is already there, to wake up the soul. The power is inside every man, so is knowing; the different works are like blows to bring them out, to cause these giants to wake up.

Struggle for Existence

Struggle quotes
Struggle quotes

“Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.”
Napoleon Hill

“Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.”
Oprah Winfrey

To move and make progress with difficulty, and making strenuous effort in the face of hardship is called Struggle.
Life is full of struggle and difficulties, each one of us has to work hard to overcome these difficulties and problems of life. Darwin said that there was a continual struggle for existence in nature, in which only the fittest would survive.

Every element which exists in nature looks to complete its configuration to acquire stability. If an element have not completed its electronic configuration it cant exist in nature.

We humans are made up of these elements only and we too show similar property to acquire stability. Each of us struggles for his existence. By existence i mean your own identity, your own achievements, success, abilities. Each of us who live in this competitive world, each individual wants to make his own identity, and wants to prove himself in front of this world.

When someone have proved himself in this world then he exists in this world, and when something exists we know him by his works. Such a person who has proved himself is successful.

But this stability will not come easily. To live or exist in this word you will have to struggle and this struggling periods of your life will teach you the lessons of life. If you will learn them successfully your chances of existence will increase and sooner or later you will be able to make your own identity, and when you have acquired stability at that moment you will exist in this mighty universe.

“Behold, O monks, this is my advice to you. All component things in the world are changeable. They are not lasting. Work hard to gain your own salvation.”
Buddha

Fear is in itself degrading; it easily becomes an obsession; it produces hate of that which is feared, and it leads headlong to excesses of cruelty.

― Bertrand Russell

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
― Frank Herbert
