unawareness of this basic fact, people repeatedly make the blunder of failing

hanker after acquiring things that they simply cannot acquire, come what may.
If they realized this blunder that they are making and planned their life
accordingly, they would be able to lead far more successful and meaningful
task is to discover that the universe is functioning on the basis of the law of
nature that has been established by the Creator. This law is not going to be
changed for anyone’s sake. Hence, we need to learn about the law of nature and
then mould our lives in line with it. If we fail to do this, it is simply
impossible to succeed in life.
it is said, “is the art of the possible”. But this principle applies not to
politics alone. It actually applies to every aspect of life. If you make your
goal something that, according to the law of nature, you are never going to
get, you are bound to fail. On the other hand, if you plan your life within the
boundaries of what is possible, you are much more likely to succeed.
