Someone asked Acharya Chanakya - What is Poison?
“Be peaceful… be a lifelong learner…and lead a meaningful life by assisting others…”
He replied with a beautiful answer - Anything which is more than our necessity is Poison. It may be Power, Wealth, Hunger, Ego, Greed, Laziness, Love, Ambition, Hate or anything
What is fear?
Unacceptance of uncertainty. If we accept that uncertainty, it becomes an adventure!
What is envy?
Unnacceptance of good in others. If we accept that good, it becomes inspiration!
What is anger?
Unnacceptance of things which are beyond our control. If we accept, it becomes tolerance!
What is hatred?
Unnacceptance of a person as he is. If we accept a person unconditionally, it becomes love!
It is a matter of acceptance. Resistance creates stress, acceptance does away with stress.
