WHAT EVER GOD  BESTOWS IS ALWAYS GOOD FOR THE INDIVIDUAL

One always seeks and craves for the happiness. If any event in his life is not physically or mentally favourable to one, he complains and gets disheartened. Sometime it shakes one’s belief or faith in God or his Master. His philosophical knowledge lags behind and does not get satisfactory answer as why and how the suffering befell on him when he had led a truthful, helping and moral life.

Though one theoretically knows that suffering passed on to him in present life, is the result of karma of his previous life which he is not aware of and cannot know .His mind does not accept it in true sense. However the fact remains that suffering or happiness is the result of his if not present sanskaras then definitely of his sanskaras of previous life. More ever it is always for the good to counterbalancing of his undesirable sanskaras.

The individual is responsible for his own thought; word and action which are spent on his  previous or present life. Thoughts words and actions, now done in more intelligent manner improves the quality and quaintly of his present thoughts words and actions which result in  sanskaras of lesser gravity. Thus the individual goes on improving his sanskaras, slowly and slowly, birth by birth and reaches nearer to balancing of good and bad sanskaras. In this reference Baba has also said the one can make his fortune by himself. Wish of seeker can become Baba’s will if one follows His six wishes one hundred percent. This is only possible when one is lucky enough to come under discipleship of Sadguru or Avatar. His journey becomes safer, easier, and shorter than a seeker who is not in contact of Sadguru Avatar for whom it may to take a long journey of 84 million births in human life.

Following two interesting stories establish that God always does good for everyone which one fails to understand. Only gifted souls under guidance of Master can understand and remain worry-free.

Story-1- (God is always right)

Once upon a time there was a king. A son was born to king. In a celebration, King called all his courtiers and leaned men of his state and asked them to foretell about futures of his son. Everyone praised and foretold about son saying he will be very rich, great warrior, great religious, great donor etc, but his prime minister said the ultimate fact that son will certainly die one day. King enraged and imprisoned the prime minister.

Next day, king decided to go for hunting in the forest with his fellow men. By chance, king was left behind his fellowmen in the night and caught by forest tribals. Tribals decided to sacrifice the king next morning to please their deity (God). They kept the king in their custody overnight. In the morning tribals found that King had only four fingers in his right foot and therefore unfit for sacrifice and released king.

When king came back to his capital he told this incident to prime minister saying that God is great. Yesterday, I was saved from death by God’s grace. The prime minister said if had not been imprisoned by you, I surely would have gone with you and killed by the tribals. God is really great. God always does everything for our good. King accepted words of prime minister and released him from the prison.

Another story ( Plan of the Lord                                                                   

Once there was a sweeper in a well known temple and he was very sincere and devoted. Every time he saw thousands of devotees coming to take darshan of the Lord, he thought that the Lord is standing all the time and giving darshan and He must be feeling very tired. So one day, very innocently he asked the Lord whether he could take the place of the Lord for a day so that the Lord can have some relief and rest. The Deity of Temple replied, "I do not mind taking a break. I will transform you like Myself, but you must do one thing. You must just stand here like Me, smile at everyone and just give benedictions. Do not interfere with anything and do not say anything. Remember you are the deity and you just have faith that I have a master plan for everything. The sweeper agreed to do this.

The next day the sweeper took the position of the deity and a rich man came and prayed to the Lord. He offered a nice donation and prayed that his business should be prosperous. While going, the rich man inadvertently left his wallet full of money right there. Now the sweeper in the form of deity could not call him and so he decided to control himself and keep quiet.

Just then a poor man came and he put one coin in the Hundi and said that it was all he could afford and he prayed to the Lord that he should continue to be engaged in the Lord’s service. He also said that his family was in dire need of some basic needs but he left it to the good hands of the Lord to give some solution. When he opened his eyes, he saw the wallet left by the rich man. The poor man thanked the Lord for His kindness and took the wallet very innocently. The sweeper in the form of the Deity could not say anything and he had to just keep smiling.

At that point a sailor walked in. He prayed for his safe journey as he was going on a long trip. Just then the rich man came with the police and said that somebody has stolen his wallet and seeing the sailor, said he has taken it. Now the sweeper in the form of Deity wanted to say that the sailor is not the thief but he could not say so and he became greatly frustrated. The sailor looked at the Lord and asked why he, an innocent person, is being punished. The rich man looked at the Lord and thanked Him for finding the thief. The sweeper in the deity form could no more tolerate and he thought that even if the real Lord had been here, he would have definitely interfered and hence he started speaking and said that the sailor is not the thief but it was the poor man who took away the wallet. The rich man was very thankful as also the sailor.

In the night, the real Lord came and He asked the sweeper how the day was. The sweeper said, "I thought it would be easy, but now I know that Your days are not easy, but I did one good thing." Then he explained the whole episode to the Lord. The Lord became very upset on hearing this whereas the sweeper thought the Lord would appreciate him for the good deed done.

The Lord asked, "Why did you not just stick to the plan? You had no faith in Me. Do you think that I do not understand the hearts of all those who come here? The entire donation which the rich man gave was all stolen money and it is only a fraction of what he really has and he wants Me to reciprocate unlimitedly. The single coin offered by the poor man was the last coin he had and he gave it to Me out of faith. The sailor might not have done anything wrong, but if the sailor were to go in the ship that night he was about to die because of bad weather and instead if he is arrested he would be in the jail and he would have been saved form a greater calamity. The wallet should go to the poor man because he will use it in My service. I was going to reduce the rich man’s karma also by doing this and save the sailor also. But you cancelled everything because you thought you know My plan and you made your own plans.”

God has plans and justice for everyone…We just have to have patience!
