Have you ever noticed that there are things in nature that adjust to their environment?
These are just a few examples of nature’s adjustments to its surrounding environment.
What is the intention behind Adjusting in Life?
Questioner: What is the intention behind this adjustment, and to what extent do we have to adjust?
Dadashri: The intention is peace and the goal is peace. This is the key to avoid unhappiness. It is Dada's science of adjustment. This adjustment is remarkable. You know what happens whenever you do not adjust. This failure to adjust is foolishness. Adjustment is justice. Any kind of obstinacy (adherence to one's viewpoint) is not justice. You should never force your viewpoint on anyone regardless of the matter; I never do. In life, you must use the approach that will quickly draw matters to a close.
No one has ever failed to adjust with me. Here, a household of only four cannot adjust with each other. Will you learn how to adjust? Is it not possible to adjust? You will learn from whatever you observe. The law of this world is that you will learn from what you observe. No one has to teach you that. Is any part of this difficult to learn? Perhaps you might not understand the part that I am preaching, but if you were to observe my conduct, you will easily learn.
Even if you know very little in this world, it is not a major problem. You may have very little knowledge about your field of work. Even that is all right, but it is essential that you know how to adjust for your peace of mind. You have to learn to adjust otherwise you will suffer. Take advantage of this message and make the most of it.
Understanding to help you Adjust easily in Life:
Param Pujya Dadashri says, “Circumstances will continue to change. They will not adjust to you; you will have to adjust to them. Circumstances do not have bhaav (inner-intent) and you have bhaav. To make the circumstances favorable is our job. Unfavorable circumstances are indeed favorable. One begins to breathe hard while going up the stairs, and yet why does he climb them? There is the bhaav that he will be able to go up; he will be able to take advantage of what is up there!”
So if you want to progress in life and experience peace of mind and happiness, then to ‘Adjust Everywhere’ is the most essential starting point to reach your desired destination.
