Every human being has that special power of discrimination that distinguishes us from animals. Mounted with this power of discrimination... most human beings can manifest destiny! Still, above 99?eople world over consider self a slave of destiny. Why?
In the cosmic crux of things... it is our soul atman that has manifested the human body... the human form to work out its karma... remove the dross impurities within! Our soul atman is the absolute master and controller of the body. Our soul atman is on its cosmic journey of 8.4 million manifestations (an earthly life cycle of 96.4 million years).
The initial 7.3 million manifestations are spent in insect, plant and animal form! In the human form we have 1.1 million manifestations. During this period of 1.1 million manifestations... human beings are expected to reach the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha).
In the long maze of 1.1 million manifestations in the human form... what value of one life cycle of 70 to 80 years... the prime reason why most human beings think themselves as pawn in the hands of life! Yet, human form being the highest manifest stage in the cosmic life cycle... it is only in the human form the soul atman within gets liberated from the cycle of birth and death forever.
Born in a cobbler's house... was my destiny! But marrying the Princess of the state in present life is what life is all about! One can always manifest destiny by having a distinct goal in life. Pursuing this goal with all eggs in one basket... with the bulldog determination of Winston Churchill... is what life is all about!
In absence of a goal... human beings practically become a slave of destiny! Not knowing what to do... life is like a rudderless boat going round and round in the ocean. When 11 years of age I wanted to see and meet God in this life. Not knowing what God Almighty is... no inkling of the spiritual path... I started in search of God 13 years of age!
With none to guide, I was a lost child in the maze of spirituality! However best I tried... I could never find a spiritual master to guide me. In exasperation one-day, I begged of God Almighty to become my guide in the journey of life... and lo, he willingly agreed! Thereafter... it was no looking back. I finally manifested my destiny.
At 37 years of age in 1993... I finally realized God... became one with God! This is my last manifestation as a human being. Nowhere further to go... I shall but attain salvation (moksha) in this very life. By traveling the path of absolute truthfulness... I took the control of destiny early in life! In absence of absolute truthfulness... nothing much can be gained in the journey of life!
Having a goal of life is an absolute must! Only then can one hope of manifesting destiny one day! Establishing absolute control over destiny is not a days' job! It took me 25 years of Yoga meditation before I realized God in 1993! Until the last moment, I did not know on what level of karma index I stood. But on the third of August 1993, all became absolutely clear!
Whatever be our goal of life... we need to pursue it with absolute patience, persistence and perseverance all the time! There are no short cuts on the path of manifesting destiny! It is 10?lanning and 90?erspiration that pave way for manifesting destiny. And 90?erspiration includes traveling the extra mile whenever necessitated!
