Chariji Anything within limits is useful; exceeding limits, it is a poison. That is the problem of youth, you see – unrestrained indulgence, thinking that indulgence is good. The whole thing is a combination of wisdom and restraint – two qualities which normally youth doesn’t possess, but they are expected to acquire and cultivate. People who acquire and cultivate this will become wise adults; adults living a life of regulation, therefore a serene life, free of the turbulence of life; vacillating between sickness and health – they don’t. They have a serene life like a placid river which is flowing. There may be huge volumes of water, but you hardly see a ripple on the surface. 2010-06-19 1128 Taken from the book "Youth: a Time of Promise and for Effort", Chapter "Wisdom and Restraint", pg. 154, by Revered Chariji 2010-06-19T00:10:02-04:00 1167 EN 0 Youth: A Time of Promise and for Effort Book 7 6207 154 2010-06-19T00:10:03-04:00 Youth
