Everyone, young or old, complains of stress or tension—a common phenomenon of our times. There are several centres established in order to enable de-stressing, but these provide, at the most, only temporary relief. None of them offer any permanent solution.
Tension is only a negative term for a positive phenomenon. What is generally called tension is, in fact, a sign of a healthy life. It is not evil, but a blessing in disguise. Your mind has unlimited capacity, but this capacity, which is a gift of nature, is in the form of potential. You need to turn this potential into actuality. How should you go about doing this? Your potential can be realised only by being exposed to different kinds of stress or tension. Stress plays a role in developing our personality; stress awakens our mind; stress activates the natural processes which lead to intellectual development.
