Infact this ego of the mind is fed since childhood. As we do things, only what we like and ignore people and things we dislike.
At times we are so limited by the narrow thinking of the mind who wants to control every thing that at times we do not let go of our views and ideas and miss the bigger scheme of things. *Thy will be done is a beautiful way in life to accept things which in the short run may seem very harsh but in the long run in the scheme of life every part of the puzzle fits in perfectly.*
Thy will be done makes us accept situations and also helps us deal with our frustrations due to failure in a magnanimous manner. For example, lets say a student is studying really hard with a lot of effort to succeed in a science exam, only to fail in his examination at the end of it all. At that point in time, he feels really sad because all the effort seems to have been a waste. He shifts to the commerce exams and in time to come completes his MBA and becomes one of the top bankers in the city. So at the time of failure to reduce the agitations and frustrations of the mind if he had learnt this maxim *(Whatever happens happens for a reason and for the good or Thy will be done or proverbially as they say “BECAUSE YOU HAD A BAD DREAM DOES NOT MEAN YOU WILL NOT SLÉEP EVER AGAIN”).*
When our monkey mind works on these maxims in life it learns to deal with disappointments and failures in an apt manner and when the mind is silent it takes important decisions correctly. When a room is silent its simpler to take a calm decision rather than in a noisy room.
A very good example to this is the story of *AKBAR AND BIRBAL (if you are a good tale reader like ne you would be preview to the story).* This story highlights the point where Akbar looses one of his fingers while hunting with Birbal and Birbal tells the the king everything that happens actually happens for the good. Akbars mind facing that pain cannot understand how there can be any good in him loosing a finger. Well we all have to realise at some point that every incident when like when you pull up your legs and look at them, you realise that life is just perfectly placed to make you the person you are today and every other day.
Had akbar not lost his finger he would have been sacrificed by the adivasis who had caught him in the jungle. Since his finger was cut they realised they cannot give him as a sacrifice to their god because in their eyes he was defective due to lack of one finger. Akbar in that story felt sorry and realised the reason behind him loosing the finger but there are so many instances and experiences which may seem so disappointing, terrifying and depressing and the reason behind the occurrence or the reason might not come to light but the Monkey mind has to have the faith in the maxim that *Thy will be done and not mine will be done.*
At that point of self realisation, life becomes such a joyous experience because disappoitntments are also taken in the right spirit and appropriate decisions are taken with a calm mind.
Finaly, dear clients and friends… *LET THY WILL BE DONE PERIOD!!!*
