What’s a nervous breakdown? It’s not a illness, as some
materialists would really like folks to assume. It’s not a bodily ailment like a
damaged leg or one thing. A nervous breakdown occurs when an individual can’t
deal with the burden, anxieties and strain of his or her life.
An individual breaks down when he realizes that the fabric
shelter the place he has been making an attempt to take refuge has all fallen by way of. The
particular person experiences, “I can’t discover happiness on this anymore. I can’t discover
which means in any of these items. None of these items are satisfying although I’ve
tried to squeeze out pleasure from them. I simply can’t discover shelter in them
anymore”. He experiences such a heavy burden and strain as a result of his futile
makes an attempt to search out satisfaction in both materials issues, relationships,
possessions, endeavors, ambitions or objectives.
The standard one who has a nervous breakdown is the
businessman. He repeatedly strives to achieve the highest of the heap within the
materials world. The strain to be the primary man is at all times on him. He
worries that he’s not going to get what he desires or that the opposite guys are
going to get the principle job as a substitute of him. The burden is so nice that he can’t
deal with the strain and at last cracks.
Nearly each politician additionally involves the verge of a nervous
breakdown every time there’s a main election, until he rigged it beforehand.
The politician desires to be the man – the winner! Whereas the votes are coming in
and being tabulated, he’s on the verge of a nervous breakdown alongside together with his
followers, marketing campaign employees and wives. They’re all ready for the election
Lastly, the announcement is made and it hits them. “Huh . .
. we misplaced, we misplaced”. Then they begin crying and don’t know what to do. They’re
sitting there in a stupor. “What’s our future? What’s our goal? What are
we going to do now? Now what?”
Additionally on the verge of breakdown often is the housewife who’s
overwhelmed with this purposeless existence of simply caring for the home.
She tries taking anti-anxiety medicine however they don’t actually do something for her.
They maintain her spaced out and she or he retains coming down. So, she involves the purpose
of a nervous breakdown with out even essentially understanding why.
These completely different folks get so tense and the reason for this
rigidity and agitation is their entire materialistic life. Attributable to anxieties based mostly
upon materials ambitions, objectives and illusions, they get so uptight. Their nerves
come as much as this sure, wound up situation as a result of lust. This lust or ardour
places folks in a state the place they only wind up so tight that they’re able to
spin out or break aside.
A nervous breakdown merely implies that an individual can’t cope
any longer with the burdens that come up from their materialistic existence.
“They arrive to the tip of their rope”, as some folks put it, and after they come
to that time, they see and really feel that they haven’t any shelter, no refuge.
The issue is that they’ve been making an attempt to take shelter in
matter – materials issues, relationships, our bodies, objectives and ambitions. In different
phrases, they’ve been making an attempt to take shelter on this world. And, while you come
to that time, the place you possibly can’t take shelter on this world anymore, then they
don’t know the place else to take shelter. So that they assume that is dangerous.
However, I say it’s not dangerous. A nervous breakdown isn’t dangerous. However
the materialistic particular person will get wound up on this situation of distress with out
experiencing any actual reduction. And coming to that time he freaks out. He tries
to neglect his existence by way of alcohol or medicine or wishes to stop current.
He desires to finish his existence as a result of he feels he has no refuge.
However an clever one who is aware of that God exists and
remembers that God is the Greatest Pal of each single residing entity
experiences, “I can and should really take shelter in God. I do have a Pal
and my Pal loves me unconditionally”. Coming so far, he falls on his
face and cries to God, “Please save me. I’ve no shelter; I’ve no refuge however
You. All the good religious masters say that I can take shelter of You. I’ve
no different shelter. Please give me safety”. So, calling upon the Names of God
and crying out to Him. “Please give me shelter”, you’ll then expertise your
actual identification, your actual relationship with God.
Apparently sufficient many cultures on this planet relate to
God with completely different names, and all these names relate to completely different facets of
God’s persona. The Hebrews name Him Abba (Father) or Eloi (Pal); the
Muslims name Him Allah (The All-Compassionate One); the Jehovah Witnesses name
Him, clearly, Jehovah (The All-Mighty One); the Hindus name Him Krishna (The
All-Enticing One). The Hindus really feel that the title Krishna is essentially the most potent
as a result of if somebody is all engaging then the title for that side of their
persona should include all of the others.
So what is commonly seen as a unfavorable factor – the ache of a
nervous breakdown – is actually a gap. It’s a door. It should trigger you to
enter one other dimension – the religious world – the place there’s actual refuge;
the place there’s actual love; the place there’s actual friendship, actual safety, actual
goal, actual solace, and an actual which means to your existence.
After having surrendered to God on this manner, even as soon as, a
particular person won’t have any extra nervous breakdowns as a result of his shelter is God. So far as this world is
involved, they expertise, “If I ain’t bought nothing, I bought nothing to lose”. In
different phrases, as a result of they aren’t connected to something on this world, then
nothing can go fallacious for them. What can go fallacious? They merely stay their life
making an attempt to serve and please God. So, if they’re in nervousness, their solely nervousness
is whether or not or not their life is enjoyable to Him.
For the reason that
Supreme Particular person is the unconditional lover of all of us, there isn’t any query of
His not giving shelter to those that sincerely flip to Him. However what if an individual
falls down from the platform of serving God? Straightforward! He merely turns to his
Pricey-Most Pal and from the core of his coronary heart cries out to Him. “Please
forgive me. Please give me shelter. I’ve rejected You. I’ve been foolishly
making an attempt to take shelter on this materials world although I do know that there’s
no actual shelter there. I’ve tried to take shelter within the finite, which isn’t
You. And once more, I’m struggling due to it. And now I’m turning to You.
Please give me shelter. Forgive me for my rejecting You, for my turning away
from You”. Then God offers you His
safety for He’s at all times ready for an individual to give up to Him on this
who’s serving God doesn’t thoughts “nervous breakdowns” in any respect. In actual fact, he likes
them as a result of it’s a distinct kind of nervous breakdown. He may come to level
of being nervous or experiencing some pressures in his making an attempt to do issues in
the service of God. However he doesn’t attempt to carry the load, nor does he attempt to
escape in medicine, alcohol or no matter. As quickly as there’s an excessive amount of strain to
bear, he merely goes into the key world of his relationship with God and
surrenders to Him. Then he experiences how he himself is nothing. As a result of he
feels he’s nothing he then experiences that he has no burden in any respect. “If I’m
nothing, how can I’ve a burden? If my world is solely dovetailed with God, it
implies that I don’t have any issues that seeing myself as my physique and never the
religious spark residing within the physique (false ego) will current.
following my will, ambitions and wishes, then I’ll have issues. As a result of I
am not God, a part of my will is probably not achieved. As a result of I’m not God, my will is
not omnipotent. However, if I’m making an attempt to do God’s will, then the issue will not be
mine, however God’s. And since He’s God. the Supreme Controller, then the
so-called downside will not be actually an issue in any respect.
I don’t settle for
the concept that God can have issues or troubles with the satan, for instance.
God has no competitor. Nobody can compete with God. Some people could also be in
the phantasm that they will compete with God however nobody can actually be of any
fear to God. He by no means worries about dropping management or that His will gained’t be
achieved in some way as a result of he could also be dropping His energy. God is at all times the Supreme
Controller. He merely provides us the selection
to show to Him or not.
nervous breakdown is for an individual who continues to be making an attempt to do his personal will. What
is he nervous about? In case you have a look at anybody who has a nervous breakdown,
the whole lot he’s nervous about has one thing to do together with his having his personal
will, his personal wishes, his personal pursuits and his personal ambitions.
But when a
particular person doesn’t have any curiosity, will or ambition of his personal, then there isn’t any
query of him having a nervous breakdown. He’s already damaged down. How can
that which is damaged, break? A nervous breakdown is for these individuals who have
not but been damaged. A lover of God is already damaged. His self-will is damaged.
His self-interest is damaged. His ambitions and plans are damaged. He has nothing
however God, Who’s the whole lot. But, on this damaged situation, he’s the strongest
of the sturdy.
folks lose issues they’re extraordinarily connected to, they expertise semi-death.
For instance, entertainers and film stars fear about dropping their seems to be, as
their our bodies become older. Issues begin to disintegrate they usually begin dropping
management. They’re in nervousness as a result of they aren’t revered as they was once. Mainly, a nervous breakdown means my
supply of safety will get taken away.
Bible, there’s a good level about not constructing a home on the seashore at low
tide. Finally the tide will are available, so solely a idiot will construct a home on
the sand when the tide is low. Those that have constructed homes on the seashore,
those that have taken refuge on this non permanent materials world, get shocked
although it was apparent to them that eventually they’d be kicked
out of their our bodies by way of loss of life.
people who find themselves residing materialistic existence and who’re taking shelter in
the non permanent as a substitute of the everlasting needs to be warned, sooner or later, you’re going to
have a nervous breakdown. Proper now, you could be briefly getting away from
your issues by way of completely different strategies. You could possibly briefly neglect
the insecure place you might be actually in, however sooner or later you’ll understand how
insecure you actually are, that you don’t have any shelter. And when that day comes,
keep in mind this: that you’ve actual shelter. It isn’t hopeless. When the partitions
of your home come crumbling down, then keep in mind that God loves you. His love
for you is unconditional and that truly He’s the one shelter.
be on this planet however not of the world.
