Radhanath Swami on A Time to Reflect

Prioritizing integrity and values within one’s life, especially in today’s world where there is so much stress, so many demands and temptations, is really important. Sitting on the banks of a river, watching the current rushing by, you can realize that if you are in the river, you really get tossed around. You have not much time to think about anything else except the next wave that will be hitting you. But if you are sitting on the bank, you can observe the river with detachment. Similarly when we get side-tracked with the external activities in the demands of life, we may miss the point, the essence of where we are really going. We should take the time out to stand back and reflect on what really is of true value in life.
