Dilemma is the situation when one finds oneself in a fix– what to do, what not to do. It is a position where each of the two alternatives (or all the feasible courses) makes a person land up in a state of indecision leading to mental agony.
Wisdom is the power of discrimination to determine what is wrong and what is right. In the absence of this power, one is unable to decide the right course of action. There is a vast difference between the intellect and the wisdom. Intellect can be developed by acquiring knowledge from books, newspapers, e-media & various other external sources, but wisdom is not the subject of books and theories.
NEGATIVE THOUGHTS & ATTITUDE
IMPACT OF DILEMMA
The impact of dilemma may be in several different ways like physical, mental, financial, personal, or, for that matter, a loss of life altogether.
Wisdom develops only when one gets attached to his base, his source, which is the Supreme Lord. This, in turn, can happen only with the grace of a Perfect Spiritual Master who imparts True Knowledge to the seeker and reveals the divinity within. When one attains the direct perception of the Lord within the abode of his heart, his wisdom develops and the soul learns to discriminate. Then he is able to listen to his soul's voice, which acts as the perfect guide taking him in the right direction.
CLEAR THOUGHTS & POSITIVE ATTITUDE
Positive thinking always works wonders. Why to think that the tumbler is half empty? Why not think that it is half full and capable of quenching my thirst? However, this lesson of positivity is the gift of meditation and practical spirituality. It cannot be accrued simply from moral lectures and talks. When the inner self of a person is linked with God, all negativity comes to an end forever. Negativity, thereafter, never raises its ugly hood, thus smoothening the way towards Positivity. Again, for gaining this positivity through spirituality, one needs a Perfect Guide to guide him on the path of real meditation.
FEARLESSNESS & SELF CONFIDENCE
Fearlessness is the product of true love. Love, which is the basic characteristic of God, conquers all fear. So, when divinity gets activated within a seeker with the divine grace of the Perfect Master, all these characteristics like fearlessness, self-confidence, and other positive traits inculcate in his being and he stands firm on the feeling that “Well, I can do it!”. It instils in his character the boldness to face the challenges of life. Those who spun the horse, jump over the trenches and reach across the fence easily. Those who hesitate can never cross the fence.
KNOWLEDGE & EXPERIENCE
Difficult situations of life can be tackled well with the sword of knowledge coupled with practical experience. Here, knowledge is not merely the bookish knowledge and experience does not refer to the experience of the external world. Instead, one needs to have the spiritual knowledge along with the practical realisation of God to deal with the challenges in life wisely. Study of the lives of great and successful men in various fields undoubtedly helps a person to handle a tedious situation. But again, to grasp the gist and to leave the undesirable, it is a must to attain Divine Knowledge from a Perfect Spiritual Master. The best part is that even if one gets stuck somewhere after attaining Divine Knowledge from a Perfect Seer, the Master helps him come out of the situation and he does not have to bear the brunt of adversaries and mis-happenings.
Thus, we have come to know that the only mechanism to end up the dilemma (the mental agony) once for all is Divine Knowledge, after which we are able to lead a comfortable life free of all confusions.
