Handling life situations with ease

Conflict-free living is living completely at ease with your body, your mind, and the circumstances that you experience in the outer world. We continuously experience some conflict or the other every moment - in our relationships, our goals, in our desires, in life situations.

We invariably attribute our conflict to someone or something in the outer world. We blame the outer world for it.
People ask me, ‘Swamiji, how can I be conflict-free in a world that is filled with conflict? Only when the whole world is silent, happy and peaceful, can I become conflict-free.

Every leader who declared war claimed that he was going to bring peace to the world!

A conflict-free world starts with a conflict-free individual. To start living a conflict-free life, all you need to do is bring in the energy to change the things that need to change in your life, and the intelligence to accept what need not change. Above all, understand that whether you change anything or not, life itself is a continuously changing phenomenon.

Once you realize this, you will naturally hold onto the one thing that never changes: the eternally unchanging Truth. Then you will automatically be conflict-free. When you start living a conflict-free life, you start living enlightenment. When there is no conflict inside, you experience no conflict in the world!
