Peace of mind

"I tell you one thing.

If you want peace of mind, do not find fault with the world.

Rather learn to see your own faults.

Learn to make the whole world your own.

No one is a stranger my son.

The whole world is your own. "

These were the famous parting words of Sri Sarada Devi, wife of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa - famous mystic of 19th  century in India.

There is so much meaning in these few lines.

"If you expect anything from the world, world may give it you. Like a giving some small change to a beggar. But, you will miss the real treasure by focusing on trivialities."

Another line that stands-out is - No one is a stranger my child. When everybody else is paranoid about meeting someone else, this should come very reassuring. "There are no strangers. Only friends that we have not met yet."
