Stress and Progress
|by Dr. Shriniwas Kashalikar|
Mismanagement of stress; manifests in defective, perception, feelings and actions.
Due to defective perception; there is deterioration of values. For example; we are oblivious of our conscience and misunderstand the very meaning of progress and well being. Thus; we do not consider the harmony, honesty, punctuality, discipline, accountability, tolerance, and physical and material conditions conducive to this; in individual and social life; to measure or assess the individual, national and global progress! We measure or assess it; on the basis of; income, achievements, positions of power, number and variety of luxury items, military power and so on!
Deterioration of our actions; is evident in piecemeal and/or sectarian and hence defective policies, planning, programs and their implementation. For example; our education policy does not have an element of holistic blossoming, our planning and programs do not provide for empowering education; but heavily provide money for wasteful parasitic education and crippling caste based reservations; and subsequently and eventually; our implementation is not honest; but understandably corrupt!
Similar examples can be observed in other fields as well!
Whether we are atheists or theists; whether we belong to one religion or another, whether we subscribe to one ideology or another; and whether we practice and propagate; Namasmaran (Jap, Jaap, Jikra, Sumiran, Simaran i.e. remembering the name of God or true self) or not; these points cannot be ignored; in the best interest of personal, national and global progress.
