Destiny is a result of the line-up of Karmas waiting to fructify. They can do so only in sync with the chemistry of the planets. When the movement of planets is negative for you, your negative Karmas will get fructified. Even the dreams you get during positive planetary movements can be good ones with spiritual visions and happy experiences. These Karmas are fruits of the stored up Samskaras in the long-term memory of our inner consciousness. It is important for us to accept that there is a destiny and things happen just as they are supposed to happen.
Acceptance of Destiny
Knowledge of the existence of destiny can provide the necessary shift from expecting to accepting. Most people believe that they can make things happen. However, they feel that though they can make things happen, they probably don’t try hard enough, or they make mistakes, or someone else does not allow it, or a thousand other reasons why what we expect to make happen, doesn’t happen.
That we cannot accept. We have to find a fault. More often than not, our own.
We didn’t plan things well enough, got distracted, didn’t persevere enough, and so on, and so endlessly on!
Failure of our expectations leads to disappointments. We should have, could have, would have, are 3 famous quick fire excuses. There are 360 degrees of viewpoints from where you can look down upon yourself. Therefore inferiority complex is an easy infection to catch. We even pay to get convinced that we are idiots! Hard to believe isn’t it?
These are some of the handicaps that you need to deal with on the journey towards self-acceptance and self-love.
Lord Krishna will bear me out when I state, that in eternal truth, there is no difference between Him and ourselves, but one; the spell of our limitations. Though we share the same God Particle (colloquially speaking), we are limited by the cages of our bodies and minds, to see ourselves not as we Truly are, but as we seem to be.
That You Are (Tat Twam Asi)
- ‘That’ stands for the Supreme Consciousness of which everybody is a part.
- ‘You’ stands for you the body, you the spirit, and you the jivatma or individual soul.
- ‘Are’ means that you are part of the Consciousness Supreme even if you don’t know it, even if you don’t feel it, even if you don’t want to believe it.
According to Albert Einstein,“A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.”
