But would it not be an illusory thought to believe that everything in life will be smooth, with no change or breakdown of any sort? It is only in the fantasy world that such perfect conditions can exist.

When we are young and physically strong with a strong sense of confidence, we often build castles in the air, witnesses dreams of perfection. But with waves of failure, resistance from others, a sense of inadequacy and helplessness shake us off. When these problems strike us, we can neither think, nor consult others and seek relief from them. Therefore, the mind needs proper preparation to face what is inevitable.

We have to go to the root of the problem. Above all we have to understand the principles and laws of life to gain control over our minds and face challenges boldly, with courage.
Those who want to keep their mind calm should carefully keep off unnecessary problems. The following words of Gautama Buddha about facing problems that are unavoidable and inevitable. His thoughts bring you strength to your mind to face what is inevitable and avoidable.

  4. My thoughts and feelings shape my life. Whether it is good or evil, I have to reap the fruit of my actions.

When we think of the helplessness that may be caused by illness and disease, we lose the pride about our health, or our pride will decrease at least to some extent. When we contemplate death, out pride or attachment to life vanishes or at least gets reduced.
When we think of the change, loss of things, loss of dear ones to us, we shed our greed. When I realize that I am responsible for my present condition, and I am the creator of my destiny, the tendency to think and do evil is curbed.
