God and Suffering

Query: God and Suffering...

Vijay Kumar:
You get it all wrong. God Almighty always acts as a Dhrista (onlooker)... never interfering with the creation of his. God Almighty is not the form of human beings. It is a cluster of pure cosmic energy... much beyond the comprehension of most human beings! Only when one reaches the level of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) does the broader picture of cosmic system emerge!

Every human being is the master and controller of ones destiny! Whatever we are now results from the karma of past manifestations... the past lives! If you are suffering now... it owes its existence to the negative karma performed by you in the past! Prayers are only a means to mitigate the sufferings!

If we desire improving our present life... we have to enact karma accordingly! The karma performed by us in present life must always remain positive to nullify effects of the negative karma of the previous manifestations. To blame God Almighty for thy karma is being ignorant! None can help in the matter.

Whatever sufferings one passes through... all results from the karma enacted by us in the past lives. The remedy also lies with us! Only by indulging in positive karma one can improve the present... never otherwise! Thinking of committing suicide earns negative points on the karma index.

What if you are born an animal in the next manifestation! The form of human beings is achieved the moment we reach the karma index of 7.300000! For some reason if we are awarded 600 negative points... there is no other alternative than to manifest the form of an animal at karma index of 7.299400.

Out of 8.4 million manifestations by our soul atman within... 7.3 million manifestations are spent in the insect, plant and animal form. In the human form alone we have 1.1 million manifestations! The sole purpose of human life is gaining enlightenment and salvation (moksha). The human form is the highest manifest stage in the cosmic life cycle.

To think of cutting across life is the biggest sin in the cosmic system! Why? For the simple reason that it is our soul atman that has manifested the body to work out its karma and never otherwise! It is not within the capability of our body to manifest a soul atman! By cutting across life we are disturbing the life goal of our soul atman.

In the circumstances we shall be greatly punished by God Almighty. In whatever we stage of life we be in the present manifestation... the next manifestation would be at much lower level! Sufferings and happiness are part of life. When a metal is heated and shaped... we undergo sufferings... the moment shaped metal is put into cold water... we experience happiness!

Only by sufferings and happiness we proceed in the journey of life. This is the only way out for soul atman to remove the dross within! Life itself is a journey... never a destination! Always remember we have one life to live... who knows what we shall be in the next manifestation! Why not live our best... the best we can! Only then the grace of God becomes available to one!
