Hearing: Effective Hearing

                                                                  Q. I am a confused man, with lots of worries. I always hear Shri Ramesh Oza, and Pujya Morari Bapu, on cassettes. The time I hear I get emotional and happy. Next day I forget everything I heard, and the same routine continues.

Could you kindly explain me how is it possible to remember this at the very unpleasant situations and apply practically and take shelter in such difficulties?
