Amma said that human beings possess infinite power and could overcome any obstacle in life. Addressing a gathering during ‘Madurai Mahotsavam’, organised by Mata Amritanandamayi Math here on Tuesday, Amma urged the people to spread happiness throughout the world. Citing the examples of rainbow, flowers, full moon, butterfly and the like, she said that though their life span was very short, they were spreading happiness around.

Quoting seers and scriptures, Amma termed human lives a rare gift and hence they should make the lives worthy.

“The majority of the people in the world say that they are experiencing more sorrow than happiness. These thoughts are baseless. It is just a form of self-pity. Human beings should understand that God has created each and every living being with exact measurements and requirements,” Amma noted.

Amma urged men and women to climb the hill of greatness and success by influencing others through positive thoughts, words, and actions rather than going after big houses, wealth, fame and power.

“Every one should believe that whatever they see today will disappear tomorrow and will become someone else’s. If we think continuously that we are insignificant, our subconscious mind will start believing it. As a result, we, unintentionally, will begin displaying our weakness in our words, actions and thoughts. Soon others will start identifying us with these weaknesses,” Amma pointed out, adding that when we see ourselves as worthless, we would lose self-confidence.

Amma said that if we could see ourselves as an instrument in God’s hand instead, we would realise that we are a source of infinite power and would be able to overcome any kind of obstacle in life. “For such people, difficulties are merely a stepping stone for success. Self-confidence is like a booster rocket. It helps us break free from the impurities and bondage of the mind and allows us to soar to the heights of spirituality,” she added.
