God has created everything both living and non-living on his earth. He provides for the necessities of all his children. If a fish lives in water, it has 2 fins and a tail to swim and gills to breathe in water. Similarly birds have wings, claws, beak and a tail. The plants are designed according to the weather in which they grow. E.g.:-Trees on hills have very thin leaves so that snow cannot stay on them, it falls down. Coconuts and dates need humid weather so they grow in coastal areas near the sea. Similarly all human beings are born with their special innate qualities and potential. God pays sameattention to all his children but due to one’s own karmas the destiny differs. Destiny is the result of our past karmas and our present karmas will decide our future destiny. If we do good, we get good and if we do bad we get bad. This is the unchangeable law of nature. But how many of us really apply it in our lives in spite of knowing it? Being good is the simplest thing what God wants from us. When over a period of time one indulges in selfishness and deliberately commits himself to the pleasure of senses only, then he is likely to suffer.
What ever we get on this earth must be considered as a gift from the almighty. We are only the managers of this property. But what most of us do? We forget that we came to this world empty handed and will go like that only at the time of death. Hence we become attached to the worldly objects and attachment brings pain, misery. Attachment causes bondage due to a feeling of possession; we are always gripped by the strong demon of fear in our beings. We are afraid lest we lose it. And these negative emotions mar the veryhappiness that we think can be derived from those materialistic possessions.
Every creation of God is unique. And so are the needs and capabilities of each living being. In our greed, we forget this very basic fact and become miserable when our desires are not fulfilled. There is no end of desires. In order to understand God’s unique gift to us, we have to learn to become contented. It is only after the attainment of contentment, our mind learns to remain calm and concentrated. And only with a calm and concentrated mind one can realize one’s true inner potential. And when that happens, there is an amazing transformation in the personality of that person. A fountain of true inner happiness opens up automatically which startles not others but himself also.
