Our actions are what we are. Our actions are what we will be, our actions build our future lives. Our actions determined where we were even before many, many years in the bygone eras and times. Actions determine the character of a person. We are judged by God by the type of our performed actions. We are judged by God by the intentions of our actions. Actions are the Force which will push the soul either upwards or downwards on the wheel of life and death on the cycle of evolution!!!!
My dear Mandira, this evening I want to draw your attention on something which I feel you should be knowing by now. It is very important that you understand a few fundamental concepts and principles of Divine Laws on which our lives rest. Unless you know and understand them, you will not be able to take charge of your life. The following three posts will be an explanation of this so please try to link each post with the other and then understand the principle in totality. It will start with a mundane example but will lead you to very crucial fundamental principles of spirituality. So let’s start from this point-
If you look around yourself, perhaps you must have marked that most of the time our immediate environment is not agreeable and pleasurable as people are having altercations with co-workers, squabbling with neighbours, having some dispute with one or the other or else people are at loggerheads with relatives and opponents. We are not able to give, share, understand other people’s problems and pains, lack sympathy and shirk to co-operate. Just observe all that what I have brought out to your notice. Why do you think this is quite common no matter where you go? Did you ever find out why does man not live in adjusting and co-operative manner? It sometimes pains me to see that there are so many people who are not caring, are unconcerned, unhelpful and are self-serving to the core. What could be the real reason behind all this you must know.
Man by nature is born selfish. He is by nature covetous, acquisitive and egocentric. And the reason behind his improper behaviour and attitude is- ignorance and lack of understanding. He does not know that his actions are an outcome of his ignorance.
As we sow, so we reap. So actions based on being cunning, selfish and hate not only create unhappiness for oneself but by the act of the Supreme’s Law of action and reaction, his actions are all the time shaping and building a future life for him which will degrade his soul and as a punishment he will regress in future coming lives by encountering poverty, disease, sorrow and inadequacies. Each soul is responsible for oneself. There is so much poverty all around us and one seeks to know why is it so? It is of course because of greed and exploitation by a few and nonetheless also due to the wrong doings of the sufferers at some point of time for which he is paying now.
Whenever a soul performs a wrong action, a thin layer of dark energy covers his Soul. And the brain gets proliferated with dark dense dots of negative energy and he in turn, cannot perform deeds wisely and his intellect gets contaminated under the dark cloud of darkness. On the contrary, when we do actions and activities whether in a group or solo like generosity, helpfulness, love and kindness and unselfishness, the already existing layers of darkness and ignorance over our Soul is dispersed, gets thinner and our brain is polished little by little. That’s why good natured people, irrespective of lack of material wealth or good health are spirited people. Wherever they go, they beam happiness and make everyone light. Such people are morally upright, fearless and will always perform righteous acts as prescribed in our scriptures.
