SYNOPSIS: We should always try to earn the kindness of GOD in life. Due to it the impurities inside us remain suppressed and the virtues get reflected in our nature. READ THE FULL ARTICLE BELOW -

If we are not able to generate GOD’s kindness in our life then impurities inside us are enough to bring grief, pain and anguish.

When we earn GOD’s kindness with devotion and love towards GOD, the impurities inside us remain at bay else they cause a disturbance. All persons have virtues and impurities inside them. With GOD’s kindness, the virtues will reflect and the impurities will stay quiet. If we do not generate GOD’s kindness the impurities will reflect and the virtues will stay quiet.

Just see an example of how impurities will trouble us if we do not earn GOD’s kindness. For example, our neighbour purchased a new dazzling car for 2.5 million and it started having its effect on us. We also have a car worth 0.2 million by which our daily necessities were fulfilled. But now jealousy and irritation will creep inside us and we are tempted to purchase a better car than our neighbour. Then we will try by all means and strategy and will try to earn illegally to fulfill our desire. If we succeed, then also we will get pain because we have illegally earned which has led to our moral downfall. Illness, grief and downfall are all shadows of illegality and they reach where illegality resides. If we fail to purchase the car then too we will get pain due to our desire remaining unfulfilled.

See the effect of impurity that we get pain unwantedly when our neighbour has purchased a new car. No one has given us pain but it was the effect of impurity which was inside us.

This is just like when a person overtakes us on a highway by speeding his car. We instantly take the challenge. Till now we were driving cautiously at 60-70 kilometers speed but we took the challenge and accelerated our speed to 100-110 kilometers. Our aim now became to overtake the speeding car. When we lose caution the accident happens. Without any reason, we drove speedily and therefore had met with an accident. We were driving cautiously at 60-70 kilometers speed but when impurity inside us took the front seat then we accelerated and therefore had met with an accident. No one ordered us to accelerate but it was impurity inside us that led us to take the challenge and therefore we did so.

Likewise, in life too, we lose the wealth of satisfaction and take the wealth of greed by taking the illegal path which leads to our downfall.

Now see how GOD’s kindness works in this episode. When GOD’s kindness is with us, we are not tempted by the speeding car and we maintain our steady speed. We feel that because of young blood driving the speeding car or because of some urgency that speeding car has gone past us. We feel that the other person wants to reach his destination fast so we allow him to go past us. If we see that car meeting an accident ahead, then too we feel the gratitude of GOD and feel that GOD has saved us. If we had taken the challenge, we too would have met the same fate.

If GOD’s kindness is with us then the new car of the neighbour will have no effect on our satisfaction. We will feel that the car’s work is to cover the distance and take us from one place to another. Therefore, my 2 lakh car and my neighbour’s 25 lakh car are both equal to the task. Both make us travel to a destination. The neighbour’s car worth 25 lakh has many luxuries. But we will feel that it is not good to be a slave of luxuries as in our last travel (Funeral) we will have to travel on a wood or bamboo bed which will have no luxuries.

When we earn GOD’s kindness we feel cherished as we see the rise of someone else. We don’t feel jealous. We must take this self-examination then only we will be able to find how much GOD’s kindness we have earned.

If we are happy with our neighbour’s or opponent’s wealth we must assume that we have succeeded in earning GOD’s kindness. If we are filled with hatred, jealousy and challenges we must accept that we are yet to earn GOD’s kindness in our life.

The wealth of satisfaction is a great blessing of GOD. In all wealth, satisfaction wealth is considered to be the greatest. When the wealth of satisfaction comes into our life, we are able to shed desire from our life. Then our prayer, devotion and GOD's service become selfless. This is the true height of human life that we don’t seek anything from GOD, we only seek GOD from GOD.

Saint Shri Kabirdasji has written a wonderful couplet which says - "All seek wealth and no one seeks GOD, if we seek GOD, wealth will come automatically with GOD".

Attaining material wealth must not be mistaken here as it is not what the couplet means. If we have real devotion in life, then only we can understand the true meaning of the couplet. If we seek only GOD and GOD alone, we will attain GOD and will also get wealth. Which wealth ? Not material wealth (as it is just equal to the soil in the eyes of GOD). We will get as much soil as is required for survival but we will get four wealth - (1) Wealth of virtue (2) Wealth of devotion (3) Wealth of eternal ecstasy and (4) Wealth of salvation.

Therefore, we should never miss the opportunity to earn GOD’s kindness in life. We must always be eager to earn GOD’s kindness in life because our life will only be successful if we are able to get GOD's kindness.
