Fate And Action

Let us take stock of what is within our control and what is not.
Consider situation that a person suffers loss of his child.
Loss of child is something beyond your control.
How to respond to the situation is within your control.
1. One thinks “See how cruel God is! He has deprived me of my son!”
2. Another thinks “Well, where there is life there is death. Why to blame God?”
3. Yet another thinks “O! God is so kind! He saw that I had been getting attached to my son! So he removed the obstacle that was inhibiting my spiritual growth! He is really compassionate and kind!”

In spiritual realm you get paid for your thinking. When someone exploits another for his own gains, he is inviting trouble for him in future lives while the one who is suffering is paying for his misdeeds of past. Thus second person is finishing his bad spell while the first one will be subjected to distress in future.

Situation, therefore, does not point to God as culprit but to you for your distorted thinking in past. Just try to see compassion of God in all situations however adverse they are and you will notice how speedily you progress in your spiritual venture.

    I fuly agree with you. Theory of karma as explained by God Himself in Gota tells us that we are कर्महेतु and not फलहेतु . This means that we have right on our actions but have no right on the result of our actions. Right on result of our actions rests in God. So, it is nothing but ignorance when we blame God for our problems.

    Welcome ! Those, who blame God for their fate, commit another sin, effect of which they bear subsequently.

    Our life span is fixed, no one can change it whether one loose his life at 4, 40 or 80 . It depends on the karma we have done, there is no point in blaming God for it.

    The virtue lies in the struggle, not the prize.
