Learning to adjust is a prerequisite for a peaceful life. According to Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan, a person who knows how to adjust with others will not suffer. Param Pujya Dadashri counsels, "If you simply assimilate the phrase ‘adjust everywhere’ in your life, then that is more than enough. Peace will arise automatically for you. At first, for the first six months or so, you will experience difficulties; then, automatically, it will become peaceful.” Therefore, this adaptability of adjusting will give peace in the long run, even though at first there may be difficulties due to past conditioning.
Param Pujya Dadashri says, "Adjusting with each and every person is the highest religion". Given the vast number of different personalities, characteristics and tendencies of people, how can we go through life peacefully if we expect everyone to bend to our will? It is indeed much wiser to adjust and in doing so, maintain our peace of mind.
Put yourself in these situations, what do you do and why?
Because you are getting a salary, which helps you run your home.
So that you do not damage your car and hurt yourself.
Because you have no choice and you are only there for short period of time.
Because you cannot make it warmer outside, you have no choice.
So that you do not smell the bad air.
Because you know that you cannot change the weather, you have no control over it.
Because there are chances of falling and getting hurt.
In all these instances we knowingly adjust to the situation at hand, because we are fully aware of what might happen if we do not. In the same way, in life if we knowingly adjust to the people and circumstances around us then we save ourselves from unnecessary trouble. This enables us to live a peaceful life.
In Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan’s words, "You will sail through all difficulties in life if you adjust to anyone who fails to adjust with you. A person who knows how to adjust with others does not suffer."
When you fail to adjust a two sided loss occurs. You get hurt and so does the opposite person. So to avoid making any losses, learn how to adjust in life.
