God and Mother

Standard

A mother’s heart is not two when it comes to loving her child and
slapping it; the mother is not lacking in compassion and grace.
Neither is she not lacking in mercy, infact there is much love in
her scolding. When a mother’s heart pours out with love, she gives
sweets to every child, but in case of children creating a nuisance,
she will not slap other children. She will slap her own child only.
Similarly, God gives favorable situations to everyone, but gives
unfavorable ones to those that He has exceptional grace for and
considers as His own. Therefore in unfavorable situations one
receives immense grace from Bhagwaan, and sins are wiped out and
there is enormous spiritual development and growth in one’s life.
However many good men have been in the past; progress in their lives
had happened in unfavorable circumstance. Very few saints you will
find, who progressed in favorable circumstances.

Look, I will tell a very practical thing. If any living thing-insect
or human is suffering, then good people sympathize with it – feeling
that how shall it’s suffering be wiped out? But good people do not
sympathize-support a pleasure-seeker (bhogi); he is not liked by
everyone. Saints will be happy by looking at him, but other men will
not be happy. By looking at an enjoyer (bhogi) in a car, the hearts
of the people walking on the road burns with jealousy! They are not
supporters, but opponents. As people do not support him in his
enjoyment, similarly God too is a bit negligent towards him. Just as
when a child is happy playing and enjoying, then the mother is also
a little negligent towards him. But if the child is sad, then mother
gives special attention to him. Similarly, there is extraordinary
grace of God in unfavorable circumstances. Just like your support
is primarily towards those that are suffering, similarly God’s
support is also primarily towards those that are suffering and
unhappy.

On advent of sorrow, if sadhak remains alert, then he will make much
progress; but if he starts crying, then he will not progress. One
child was 5-7 years old and his mother-father died. Now he is 30
years old. Another child also has also grown to 30 years, whose
mother-father, grandfather-grandmother, big brother etc. are still
alive. Between these two, who will be more skilful and
knowledgeable? That child will be smarter whose mother-father is not
alive. Reason is that the extent of progress one can make in sorrow,
it is not possible in favorable situations. So what is the
conclusion? That whatever situation God has given us, it is given
for our salvation, for our redemption.
