So, as I sit by my desk without any useful job, I wonder what to write about today. Life has not been easy for the last two years. But it has been challenging and good fun as well. I failed repeatedly and at one point it looked as though my life was heading nowhere. But the sweet lord had other plans. I guess I know what I am going to write about now. It is about the mysterious ways of God.
I actually hate two words in English. They are god and pray. These two words have become so common that people now view you lightly and with suspicion, respectively, if you say these words. But the truth is that all of us whether we realize it or not, use the word and god and also pray. Some do it consciously and others do it without realizing it. So, without digressing further I will proceed with the way I think that God works.
First, every man born on earth has a plan and lives out the plan. Things happen according to that whether we like it or not. The best you can do is to try hard and alter the way in which things unfold. And the most beautiful part of the whole system is that God and his scheme care little for whether you acknowledge it. So, be it Dhoni’s phenomenal winning streak or the average Joe’s boring life things happen as they should.
So does that mean that you have no control over what happens in your life? Are you a puppet in the hands of the giant Puppet Master? Again No. Each time something good or bad happens, it is an opportunity, an opportunity for something. But the way you react to it determines how future events unfold. An unexpected win in the lottery is great. It is an opportunity. But how you react to it this windfall shapes the course of future events. Perhaps this is why, many ancient philosophies say that ‘Destiny and free will are the two sides of the same coin’.
At the risk of sounding confusing, I wrap up my attempt to explain this magnificent system. But the truth is that unless you experience it and feel the system for yourself no amount of literature will drive home the point.
(For all those who think that is article is crap and a useless attempt, I couldn’t agree with you more. But hey, this is my space and I can put up whatever I wish!)
