We have questions.
How can we be happy? When will we finally become happy? How do we make a living in this increasingly uncertain world? We should meditate but there is no time for this. What can we do instead?
Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi, the Indian sage, had a powerful way of deflecting these questions.
He would simply direct attention to the questioner.
“Who is the one asking this question? Get to know Him and the question will disappear.”
This short tale (link here) elaborates on it.
