Read the blog, “Inside disturbance = Outside disturbance”
Whatever is happening outside, you should not bring it inside
You should observe your mind as a third person. How to do that?
Let us say, you are going to meet a person for an important matter.
Let us assume that the scheduled meeting is at 4.30 pm.
What will you do between 3.30 and 4.30 pm?
Whatever you want to discuss in the meeting, will get repeated in your mind –“I should do this; I should not say that” and so on.
However, at the meeting you will be simply become blank if you are not prepared for the meeting.
Interestingly, whether you get yourself prepared or not prepared, the result will be the same.
At 5.30 pm you will come out of the meeting.
After coming out, you will be thinking about the meeting that took place between 4.30 t0 5.30 p.m. You don’t do this too.
The principle is, whatever is outside do not bring it inside and whatever is inside do not take it outside.
What do you mean by “Whatever is inside do not take it outside”?
Whatever you have inside you have no control. If any two persons are quarrelling, we also get angry.
You observe simply whatever is happening outside. After a few seconds it will go off (from the mind).
When you are angry, you are holding on to that anger and that is why it is staying with you. We must learn how to observe that too.
Instead of observing if we react then it becomes our karma
Everything is the drama of the mind.
We have understood everything wrongly. There is nothing called as external factors.
We have to go inside our mind. With your own mind you are entering into the others’ territory.
We have to try to do these. For that the switch words TOGETHER DIVINE will work.
You will become level-headed
When you keep on chanting TOGETHER DIVINE, you will be balanced and level-headed.
Then only the mind will be under our control.
Why the mind is not in control?
One part of the mind wants to be in harmony and other part of the mind wants to be in conflict.
If you go to a movie we want everything in that movie like love, comedy, action etc.
Whatever you except in the movie you except the same in life also. But unfortunately when we want comedy we get tragedy, when we want harmony we will get violence and so on.
We have to change it. We have to change our present life completely in the opposite direction. That alone will do us good.
Now, start chanting TOGETHER DIVINE for 10 minutes.

I am working in a company and our company conducts tests and we need to clear the same which will be considered for the appraisal/promotion. There will be 3 attempts per year.
I am not able to clear in 3 attempts also in the previous year. This year I have got to clear it. Already I have taken 1st attempt and couldn’t clear.
There are 2 more attempts left. I am really frustrated.
You had told me to chant “ELM TOGETHER”. Will it be enough? I am scared to take exam thinking if I will again fail.
Doubts can spoil all our attempts. It is faith and faith alone that carries us forward.

Thanks a lot for your advice.
I took today online exam and cleared. I chanted “ELM TOGETHER” daily and also wrote 100 times in book 4-5 days before exam.
I am really feeling very confident now.
Together: the switch word to nullify the internal resistance to pass the exam
Elm: the Bach Flower remedy to handle the task, which we consider too big and difficult to accomplish
