Great Things Always Begin From Inside
Recently, I received a message from a friend which read, “IF AN EGG IS BROKEN FROM OUTSIDE FORCE, LIFE ENDS. BUT IF IT IS BROKEN FROM AN INSIDE FORCE, LIFE BEGINS”.
How very true this message is, I thought. The message carries a beautiful lesson and if taken profoundly, can have a great influence on our life.
We all know that when we apply external pressure on the egg, it breaks and the life within the egg ends. Similarly, when the human being is influenced by the outer forces like environment, society, friends and acquaintances and gets into the trap of negative thoughts of failure, jealousy, unhappiness and distress, it leads to his downfall. In reality, all these thoughts are the production of his own mind, which thinks that his life will get affected by these external events or individuals. He lives in constant fear and feels that someone might affect him or become a hindrance in his success and happiness.
In reality, these external forces possess no power to affect anyone, rather it is us who are letting them kill the human being that we are. We are swayed by all the ill beliefs that have a bad influence on us.
The second part of the message says that if an egg is broken by the force that comes from inside, life begins. That means, if the growth of the egg happens in a natural manner then it leads to the birth of a new life, in the form of a chick. This phenomena clearly explains the eternal fact that if we listen to the Inner force – our soul, the God within , then we can prosper each day of our life. Our Inner force can keep us devoid of all the ill feelings, gives us the right knowledge, shows the ideal path and helps us in leading a righteous life.
If we introspect, we will realize that nobody else but we ourselves are our biggest enemy. We can easily increase our happiness and success with our inner belief but instead, we choose to get influenced by the outer forces which ruin us. It’s the way we think that makes all the difference.
Hence, if we let the outer force rule us, then we are breaking ourselves and are responsible for our failures, but if we let the Inner force rule our life then we are blossoming our life with all the positivism and happiness.
We are born with some eternal good qualities and should never let the outer forces like society diminish those qualities but instead should surrender completely to our Inner force and let it drive our life. We should follow the instructions of this Inner Force and let it be our mentor in all situations so that we live a progressive, happy, and an ideal life.
