These thoughts have been running in my mind for quite sometime and now, am posting it. We believe that not a single atom can move against God’s intention, but still we all live in fear of something. Fear of losing our jobs, fear of death, fear of losing loved ones, fear of future, fear of career and so on. But we forget that this world is materialistic and nothing in this world can give eternal happiness. If we are poor, we are worried about not having money; if we are rich, we are worried about protecting it; if we are not married, we are worried about not having a family; if we have a family we are worried about running it; the circle goes on. We also forget that this lifetime is a small phase in the timeless journey of our Atma, and that the difficult times that we endure are just minuscule parts of this already minuscule life. And even the difficulties we endure here are for some good only. Eternal happiness is possible only when we understand what real happiness is, and real happiness is possible only in Sri Vaikuntam with Sriman Narayana.
Many a times we are sad because our loved ones are sad. But the fact remains that every relationship expects something from us. The only One who doesn’t expect anything from us is the Supreme God, Sriman Narayana. All He expects from us is to Believe in Him & Surrender to Him. Once we believe and surrender in Him, we can live happily with no fear, as the Omnipotent with limitless energy is protecting us. But unless we totally believe that we will be protected & we are protected, we will continue to live in fear. Even if we are to die, we are going to a much better place with eternal bliss & happiness and we no longer are under the vicious cycle of birth & death. We are just going back to where we came from, Sriman Narayana.
And many of us have got the intention to relate the magnitude of happiness and sufferings we face to the magnitude of our spiritualism. But again we forget that [as said earlier] this lifetime is a small phase in the timeless journey of our Atma, and that the difficult times that we endure are just minuscule parts of this already minuscule life. And even these difficulties are for some good that cannot been seen by us the very moment.
All we need to do is Surrender [Saranagathi] to Him and keep doing our duies [Karma Yoga] and live happily. He will take care of the rest.
