One thing about life and us; we can’t fix everything in our lives. We have been taught to have control on our lives. As a consequence we spend our entire life to fix it, control it and have authority over it. It gives us a delusional feeling that we have control over our lives and its output. Perhaps some part of it can be controlled but not everything.
If anything goes wrong or disagreeable in our lives, we don’t accept it as it is. Our next reaction on this is “had it been done differently, results were amazing” or we start blaming others for our own situations. Eventually, I have realised that there will always be a few things which will screw our lives no matter what we do or how hard we try. In the course of life, I have also realised that we all have to go through with our own share of pain, suffering and struggle no matter how much skilled, talented, spiritual, religious or perfect we are.
Life is full of splendid, dreadful and unforeseen events. There are riches and rags. Everyone goes through chaos and despair in life. My spiritual life journey has taught me that life is not only about what decision or choices I made but also about what karmas I did in my past lives. Whatever tumult and clutter I am in today is the consequence of my leftovers odious past karmas which got carry forwarded in this life.
There are lot of people who don’t believe in spirituality or karmas. They consider this concept of past lives karmas are ridiculous and often found saying that we get only one life, heaven and hell is here only. No one knows what had happened in past life and who will know about reincarnation? My dear friend if that is so; why some really good people go through the worst of the time and many sinister and remorseless people achieve things swiftly. This strengthens my belief on past lives and its sequel on present life.
There are many unending questions and unending answers. One thing is sure that there is certainly much more beyond this existing life, science, world and understanding of our known limited belief and knowledge. We can do our best by putting our best efforts, embracing each moment and live with a flow by keeping in mind that “everything can’t be fixed”.
In Indian scripture “The Bhagwad Gita” Lord Krishna says – “You are entitled to do your duty and action, but never to the results of your actions. Let results not be your motivation or demotivation, and do not be attached to laziness and inaction.”
