In this modern age we have invented many things. We travel fast. We have computerized almost everything. We probe into the minutest particle of matter and are able to use the force hidden within. Yet, with all these so-called advancements, we don’t seem to have found peace and harmony. Every time a desire comes into the mind, the peace is disturbed. It’s something like when a stone falls into the still waters of a lake and creates waves. When a desire enters into the peaceful mind, it disturbs the mind by creating a depression. After putting some effort into getting what you want, you have fulfilled the depression created by the desire. Then, the mind regains its peace. But this peace is the true nature of every individual—don’t disturb it.
– Sri Swami Satchidananda
