Eswara as Jagath Niyaamaka takes out Jagath(Universe) from within Him as Srushthi and holds it for some time as Sthiti and takes back it within into Him as Layam.
Eswara is Sarva Vyapakam and Anantam.
Eswara is within us as Atma.
Mind (Manasu) of a person also creates Jagath(world) in Swapna Avashtha (dreaming state) , hold it for sometime and takes back within into it. On immediately waking up, that person realizes the unreality of the dream that he had. Exactly on the same lines if mind of a person surrenders to a Sat Guru(realized soul) Sat Guru blesses spiritual awakening to mind in waking state. Then the mind of that person wakes up spiritually and realizes that this Jagath (universe) is also Mithya(unreal) just like Swapna Jagath (dream world) and takes back Jagath(Universe) within into it by dissolving it as Layam during the waking state(Jaagrath Avashtha). Then that person realizes Eswara/Atma.

To trust God means to trust that he can run the world without us




When we hear the Bhagavad-gita's repeated exhortation to fix our mind on Krishna, we may doubt, "I have so many responsibilities that I need to think about. How can I just think of Krishna?"




Certainly, it's important to be responsible, but it's just as important to understand responsibility holistically. We all have many responsibilities associated with our various roles such as family members, professionals and citizens. But we are not those roles; we are souls, parts of Krishna. Our fundamental spiritual responsibility is to connect devotionally with him.




As souls, we are on a multilife journey of spiritual evolution towards eternal ecstatic love for Krishna. Our worldly responsibilities gain lasting value only when we do them in a devotional mood. For developing that devotional mood, we need to practice bhakti-yoga, which centers on fixing our mind on Krishna. To focus on him, we need the trust that he won't let our world fall apart if we temporarily stop thinking about it.




We can develop this trust by understanding his position, as explained in the Gita. He is the supreme controller (09.10) – whatever results we can get in our various roles, we can get them only when he sanctions (13.23). Whatever abilities we have for discharging our responsibilities, those abilities are his gifts (07.08). He is our greatest benefactor (05.29). Will he who took care of the whole world before our birth and will take care of it after our death, not take care of our small world while we are alive, especially when we are trying to serve him? Surely, he will. Gaining this conviction by understanding his position, we unhesitatingly absorb ourselves in him (10.07).




Devotional absorption purifies us and provides us the inner clarity to discharge our responsibilities with lesser anxiety and greater efficacy.




Think it over:




What is a holistic understanding of responsibility?

When do our worldly responsibilities become spiritually valuable?

How does understanding Krishna's position increase our conviction to fix our mind on him

If you get a gloomy feeling. Think of cheerfulness. Begin to smile and laugh several times. Sing some tunes that can elevate you quickly. Singing is very beneficial to drive off gloom. The depression will vanish soon. (Swami Sivananda)

Dukkha Rahita Sthiti is Ananda Sthiti.
The cause for Dukkham is Bhayam.
Bhayam(fear) is due to Mruthyuvu (death) .
But Mruthyuvu is to the body(Sareeram) and not to Eswara/Atma/everlasting within it as its Adhipati.
Thus the root cause for Dukkham is Ajhnanam(ignorance).
Ajhnanam is due to Anuraagam(passion) towards Sareeram/Anityam .
Thus Viraagam(dispassion towards body)
is Vijhnanam
Thus Vijhnanam causes Anandam.

People are bound by action (karma) and sustained by action. They can achieve anything through action. Their accomplishment lies in their skill in performing actions. The actions performed will have their appropriate consequences, and no one can escape consequences of their actions. So do good actions, develop good thoughts, and join good company to get good rewards in future. As is the seed, so is the tree and its fruits. Hence engage in good actions from an early age. What are good actions? The actions that please God. When you perform actions that please God, you will also have the reward that will please you! Hence scriptures teach us to perform all actions to please God (Sarva karma Bhagavad preethyartham). When you offer all your actions to God, your heart becomes sacred, you can then lead a peaceful life. To keep your heart sacred, with strong determination practice three P's - Purity, Patience, and Perseverance.
