Will of God

Query: Will of God... Nothing happens without the will of god. Can we really use our Free will? Do we actually have a choice or are we merely puppets in the hands of nature? If man is bounds by his karmas does he really have a choice?

Vijay Kumar:
As long as human beings believe destiny of mankind rests with God Almighty... we do not perform our karma as it was meant to be! The doctrine of karma... the law of karma is absolutely clear... as we sow so shall we reap... nothing less or more! We simply cannot expect mangoes to grow on a guava tree.

Gone are the days of rituals... the time of Vedas when rituals played very important role! In the present it is spirituality that plays the dominant role! Mounted with the power of spirituality... the power of spirit... our soul atman within that seems to exist within our heart... every human being scales the chosen frontiers of life!

No human being is ever controlled by anything! Every single human being has been imbibed with five senses and the mind to smoothen the path of life... the journey of cosmic life! In absence of the five senses and the mind... life simply could not exist in the cosmic world. It is dominating our ego... human beings crossover the hidden barriers of life!

Why blame others for our tragedy... our inaction! As per the Sacred Bhagavad Gita of Hinduism... no single soul atman can ever be affected by the workings of another soul atman. In the circumstances... every single soul atman is independent of everything else in the cosmic system!

As the human form has been manifested by the soul atman within... the human body also is independent to exercise ones free will... the power of our soul atman within! What exactly is free will... our free will is the power of our soul atman that seems to reside within our heart.

Following the power of my free will... I finally realized God in 1993! By traveling the path of absolute truthfulness... all human beings can hear the sweet small inner voice of our soul atman. The voice of our soul atman always guides us on the right path. Whether we hear the voice of our soul atman or suppress it by the dictates of our bloated ego is the sole prerogative of every individual human being.

Almost 99.99% people let their bloated ego dominate their life. With passage of time... the promptings of our soul atman coming from our heart stop! All the cosmic powers that be... are available to mankind inherently... but how many human beings truly exercise such powers for the benefit of mankind?

Dominated by the promptings of my soul atman within... the spiritual path... the uncharted spiritual journey became an obsession. Within present life itself I wanted to see and meet God. 25 years of Yoga meditation... I finally reached the end goal of cosmic life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation... the last in the cosmic life cycle!

We the commoner... the ordinary mortal thinks God Almighty to be the end of all. True... God Almighty is the only truth of life... rest all is the work of Maya (veil of ignorance)! But our existence as a human being is also a truth of life. Our soul atman has manifested the present human form to work out its karma... remove the dross impurities within!

Unless every human being acts... how can our soul atman within reach its goal of life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation! Every single soul atman is God Almighty in minuscule form present within our heart. The entire... the complete power of the Cosmos is already present within every living being... in the circumstances... can we still keep waiting!

God Almighty always acts as a Dhrista (onlooker)... never interfering with the creation of his! The whole Cosmos is governed by the doctrine of karma... as we act... so shall be our future! To gain something in life... we need to enact karma accordingly! At times we observe that the fruits of our karma do not become available to us in spite of indulging in positive karma all the time.

What if we have a negative residual balance of karma from previous manifestations? Whatever positive karma we enact in present life is utilized in neutralizing the bad effects of negative karma from previous manifestations! The moment the negative karma from previous manifestations totally neutralizes... it is a happy journey ahead for the manifested form... the form of a human being!

It becomes imperative for every individual human being to indulge in positive karma (Punya karma) all the time! Only then can we expect experiencing happiness most of the time. Karma is not a physical entity... the major share of karma is performed mentally. Even in our thoughts we cannot kill one... for the physical injury if we are awarded minus hundred marks... it is quite possible for the negative thought injury we get minus five marks!

It is this accumulation of fruits of negative karma (enacted in our thoughts most of the time) that results in our suffering most of the time! The crux of karma lay in our thoughts. Every successful human being never thinks negative. By maintaining a sunny disposition... invoking positive thoughts all the time; most human beings can attain any goal of life... come whatever may!

No human being is ever bound by the karma. It is our inner nature... to cleanse itself of the dross impurities within... our soul atman having manifested the human form! The value of human life... the essence of human life is limited to our performing karma in the best possible manner! Enacting positive karma all the time is that mantra for success in life... following which even in the present Kali Yuga... the metal age... one can reach the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha).

May God bless you in understanding the much-needed requisites of life!
