Numerous forces are no doubt at work in Nature which affect us diversely, causing joy or sorrow. It is beyond human power to eliminate any of them permanently. All that a man can do is to mould himself so as to be free from their effect. Now so long as you think yourself responsible, the effect is bound to come upon you. But if you dedicate everything to the Master, you will be rid of the responsibility and shall then be doing it in the sense of duty. Their effect will then be minimized, and the question of dejection, frustration and distress will not rise at all.
