Dealing with Problems , Where do our choices take us?

Problems are inevitable in this world as this world is itself the house of problems. Every problem always has two solutions. First one solves the problem completely while second one just gives us the impression of being solved. Problems come even to the devotees. So we should always be careful to deal with those problems.
 When Vidura was rebuked and humiliated by Duryodhana just before the onset of Mahabharata war then Vidura did not react angrily. Instead of confronting the arrogant Kauravas, Vidura left in search for higher truth. He came across various pilgrimages and got the divine association of saints like Udhava. Similarly Vivasvan took shelter of Lord Rama when he was rebuked and humiliated by Ravana. There are the other examples also like king Ambarisa, Dhruba , Prahlada etc.. Taking shelter of God dispelled all the miseries from the lives of them.

Similar situation was occurred in the Life of Karna. He sided with evil Duryodhana by not choosing Krishna. Karna initially thought that his miseries have been mitigated but actually his miseries got aggravated. Along with Duryodhana he also lived in constant anxiety and fear.

When problems arise there comes various options to solve them. What then follows is the output of the personal choices. We can choose to be God conscious or we can decide to be ego conscious.
So before taking any decision in our life we should introspect and see where we are heading towards – are we getting closer to God or are we moving away from him.
