‘Don't fear’

What H.H Sri Sri Ravi Shankar said today: Aug. 1

Q. There is insecurity at the workplace and a lot of tension about office assignments. Even when I am at the satsang, I am thinking about office. Why is it so?
H.H Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Ok, tell me have you been stressed before- were you stressed last year? You have lived through it, you didn’t die! Look back at your life- so many times you have gone through stress. Remember all that you have gone through and this will seem small in comparison. Have a look at yourself, you will understand that you have experienced this before. Don’t fear.

Q. In the Ashtavakra Geeta (an ancient scripture which documents the dialogue between Sage Ashtavakra and King Janaka), Sage Ashtavakra gives a lot of knowledge to Janaka but doesn’t clearly answer his question about what is real and unreal. Please explain.
H.H Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: There are some questions that cannot be answered in words. Ashtavakra answered Janaka in silence.

(From the Office of His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar)
