balancing desire and destiny

In Hinduism, it is believed that the only way to live a purposeful and joyful life is to create a healthy balance between enjoying desire (kama) and accepting destiny (karma). Once we do that, we go deeper — we go beyond happiness and suffering, pain and pleasure, desire and destiny. This balance only gets realized when we successfully acquire the trifecta of blissful existence: strength (bala), intelligence (buddhi), and knowledge (vidya).

Strength gives our body and mind the much-needed energy, vitality, and endurance to realize our big goals. 

Intelligence helps us develop righteousness and act rationally without being overpowered by emotions. 

Knowledge helps us expand our consciousness, gain invaluable, life-changing insights, and keep our ego in check, so that we don’t live a short-sighted, narrow-minded existence like the proverbial frog in the well.
