The Power to Digest

Recently I had lunch in a fancy restaurant with some friends. The food was expensive and tasty. Later, after I reached home, I started feeling a strange sensation in my stomach. It seemed like it was on fire. Drinking water didn't stop the sensation. That night, I couldn't sleep due to this nauseating feeling. Finally, I had a bout of vomiting and loose motions and it took me two days to recover.

This incident set me thinking. What if I had a stronger power of digestion? What if my stomach could process anything thrown in and not protest as it did? Wouldn't that be a blessing? Shouldn't we all pray to God to give us that power of digestion?

We all need a power to digest not just what we consume but everything that life throws at us. Sweet moments, bitter moments et al. It is not just our stomachs but also our minds that needs that power. To remain unaffected by good things or bad.

Let's pray God to give us that power, that strength that helps us cope with and enjoy life and everything that comes our way.

What you are discussing here is steadiness of powerful mind in all situations good or bad.
A real tough nut to crack!!! It requires lots of self conscious efforts to achieve this state of mind.
