Re: [Meditation Society of America] SHOULD WE NOT ASK GOD FOR HELP?
- How true
Very true ! Very true !
One more view :
If God exists, if He created this world & if He placed
in it a poor thing, me, I must bow to Him. But will He
be pleased with me if I just bow to Him & go on being
rouge & rascal & wicked with his other creations ?
Obviously Not, you will agree. Probably the only way
to please Him is that I be a good human, do not
knowingly harm anybody, kill any being, steal
anything, indulge in any kind of misconduct, speak
lies to cheat someone, or get intoxicated (with fury,
power, lust or simply alcohol !). And, then, by
operation of Natures Law, I will get in return from
others the same goodness. This way if I abide by this
Law of His, I need not bother Him.
And if He doesn't exist, who needs bother about Him ?

PRAVRUTTI (Path of Co-living):
In this, people desire the welfare of their body and family. They love their bodies and their families only. Their real love is not on the God but only on their body and family. When that welfare is disturbed and when it is not possible to rectify it by worldly means, then only they look at God. When you get fever and it is not subsided by the medicines you used, then you are approaching a doctor. Thus God is only an instrument to achieve the welfare of their body and family. They pretend real love on God, which is not real. When you go to the doctor you respect him too much. That respect is not real. That respect is only apparent and the aim of that respect is only that he will cure carefully your disease. These people do not bother about tomorrow.
They dont bother about the hell after death and about the next birth. Their aim is only the temporary happiness confined to this birth only. They worship God for this purpose, which is not true love at all. God also acts accordingly. He postpones all your bad results to the next births like pro-notes with increased interest. He brings the good results from future births with reduced values like the pre-matured deposits.
The Lord will not save these people in the hell. They will go to the heaven and when the results of their good deeds are finished, they are thrown back to the earth. In the future births, which are full of difficulties only, these people weep scolding the Lord. But the Lord keeps silent, because He acted according to their prayers only in the previous birth. In this field one can worship the Lord with single face, who is Vishnu, the embodiment of Sattvam quality.With this quality God will help you when you worship. But this quality always requires justice and logic. Therefore, within the rules of the cycle of justice God helps you. He will never harm you for your worship. In this field God in human form is not necessary. God will protect the justice by His power. In this field the aim of the people is not God. Their aim is only protection of justice and their families. Lord Krishna did not fight directly in the war because in this field His power is sufficient to protect the justice. Arjuna was charged with His power and Arjuna fought with the enemies. In this field the devotees can worship formless God or statues and can get apparent and temporary protection in this world.at the lotus feet of shri datta swamisurya
