Stress governs dr. shriniwas janardan kashalikarDocument Transcript
The stress per se is not unnatural and hence not
avoidable. But it explodes within us subconsciously and
even before we are aware of it; takes toll of our
conscience, our thoughts, our feelings and our actions!
Thus due to our being less conscious (less evolved); the
STRESS governs us and either gives us the “sick
happiness or sadness”; of harming, troubling, exploiting,
lying, cheating, insulting, humiliating; or begging,
submitting, stooping; and of petty failures or losses.
Not only our reflex or instantaneous actions but our well
planned activities also can be villainous; because of being
governed by the STRESS due to our low level of
consciousness; irrespective of our intellectual, emotional
or instinctual quotient, which could be high or low!
However; most commonly the low level of consciousness;
manifests in neither grossly villainous manner nor
grossly heroic manner, but in a petty, timid and mediocre
manner. We become despondent and accept meekly; our
deprivation, disease, degeneration, deterioration and
even come to terms inevitable destruction even if we are
restless, disgruntled, angry, etc! We come to terms with
life full of petty losses and petty gains!
If we want to manage the stress properly and not get
governed by it; and get healthy happiness and healthy
sadness (being happy in the wellness; and sad in the pain
of all; and realize the blossoming of one and all), then we
need to do something to be more conscious and more
The natural growth and various inputs from the society
in the form of personal and social interactions, art, and
literature and so on; are helpful and useful; but
inadequate. For growing in consciousness i.e. realizing
conscious evolutionary transformation; and managing
the stress properly (i.e. governing it!); we need to
practice NAMSMARAN i.e. JAAP, JAPA, JIKRA etc,
which connects us with the cosmic consciusness; whether
or not we are able to “follow a particular life style” or
“deliver a social service”; preached or insisted.
