To confront or adjust

The courage to face situations gives us the ability to focus on the solution and resolve it. The courage to stand up for what is right and beneficial comes naturally with spiritual empowerment. We do not fear people or situations; we hold on to our values like a compass and move forward confidently.

Using the ability to face situations removes deep-rooted fears of our death or that of a family member. It also helps us face and cope with loss of our possessions and position. It is important to discriminate and decide when to use the ability to face a situation and when to use it to adjust with people or situations:

When there are differences of samskaras, opinions and perspectives, we need to adjust, not confront. But, today, we are confronting people for such differences and depleting the strength of our relationships.

When we know about our own weak or wrong sanskar, we need to constantly work on it and not give up until we finish or change it. If we give up, that sanskar will grow stronger and weaken our will power.

If there is abuse, exploitation or compromise of values and principles, we need to confront, not adjust. If we adjust and accept these under social pressure, it is a sign of our lack of ability to face. We need to rise above their influences and do what is right.
