Question: Is the total acceptance of one's position in life possible for a person not in the spiritual life?

Sri Chinmoy: No, it is not possible. If one is not in the spiritual life, then he is in the darkness-world; therefore, he will not be able to accept life as it is. Inner and outer resentments, however helpless, will always loom large in a person who is not walking along the path of spirituality. Even those who are consciously practising the spiritual life find it extremely hard to accept their respective positions in life cheerfully and unconditionally. Such being the case, what can we expect from the desire-life of earth-bound human beings?
