GOD, BELIEF, NON-BELIEF!

A man ventured into a sizable business deal with the usual care and with a Prayer to his Deity but miserably failed.

Within a short time, he mustered courage and once again ventured into a similar task of course with more care and with a Greater Prayer to his Deity but once again failed.

He kept quiet for a while but to the surprise of everyone ventured the 3rd time of course, with the best care possible and with the Deepest Prayer to God but fate never favored him and he failed.

The next day, few people visited him at his home to console him. Among them was a distant known personality who never believed in God in his life except in doing good. He cheered up the man and said,

“Dear! I see your misfortune here and I feel sad for it.

  • In the first attempt, you very much prayed to your God but straight away failed in spite of the usual care.. 
  • In the second attempt, you offered a Greater Prayer but failed there too in spite of a good care taken.. 
  • In the third attempt, you offered the deepest prayer with the best care but that also could not do a magic.. 
Why don't you just take full care, do your job well and thus live with a feeling that it's a head and tail probability everywhere freed from all beliefs beyond?"

The man smiled and said,
  • “Dear! In the first attempt, my Prayer had been answered and I recovered with a Message from God.. 
'Check.. A good care from your side may be required!'
  • In the second attempt, my Greater Prayer had been answered and I recovered with a Message from God.. 
'Well done.. Try taking the best care!'
  • In the third attempt, my best Prayer had been answered and I recovered with a Message from God.. 
'It's just head and tail probability a few times but all the time your care should never be less!'

Tell me now.. What's wrong with me in having this Belief with me in my life all along?"

"---------"

"Dear! To tell you rightly, the firm Belief and Non-Belief are just the 2 sides of a coin.

The fact here is..
  • Countless happenings outside in the world and countless happenings inside our bodies alone decide our health, wealth, safety, well being and achievements apart from what we are doing to the best of our abilities.. 
When such thoughts enter the average human mind, sure that mind gets disturbed and nothing is achieved there by either try leaving it like that or educating self in such a disturbed condition.

That being the situation, it's truly wisdom one follows his/her intuition, develops own Belief/Non Belief, tries doing certain related Rituals and Practices all along sticking to the principle of non-injury everywhere and thus lives thru' certain peace in his/her life.

The Master truly clarified the same point through His advice once given to a humble man who was finding it difficult to concentrate on God saying,
  • “As you love your own goat kid very much, imagine the picture of your little goat in place of your Deity and thus continue your Spiritual Practice.. You are truly blessed!”

  1. Well said sir. Believers, if have a mind with that critical analysis capability then the world would truly be in peace and harmony. It is not the belief itself which is wrong, but those who believe tend to go towards a wrong highway.
