Life is like a rainbow a multicolored a multi splendor thing in which the joy of sunshine & tears of rainfall are reflected equally . When we see the whole picture of the sky with the rainbow we can appreciate it, similarly the real joy of life is not simply when everything goes our way because no matter what we do, no matter what we gain, thing will not go our way.
The only constant thing in this entire creation is just change. everything's changing , our bodies are changing, our loved ones bodies are changing. There 's birth & there's death , there's victory & there's defeat , success , failures, happiness , distress, pleasure, pain, honor, dishonor, health disease, . We can't change the nature of our environment but we can change our consciousness. We can find that foundation in ourselves & than build everything in our life on that foundation. A foundation of compassion rather than envy, arrogance, & greed and when we have that compassion with in our hearts it becomes the most powerful we do because we have a higher purpose.The past is unchangeable so it is futile to reflect on it unless we are making sure we do not repeat mistakes. The future is but a result of our actions today. So we learn from the past to do better in the present so that we can succeed in the future.
