    Even if the atmosphere drags you, you must control yourself

    People say that they should ask God only for anything since there is no alternative for them. This is a sugar-coated mischief. If you have so much love and respect to God, why are you not following the instructions given by God and avoid the sins? Even if the atmosphere drags you, you must control yourself at the end. Krishna promised that He would not use any weapon in the war. But when Bhishma wounded Him, He took His chakra and ran to kill Bhishma. This shows the effect of the practical situation but finally Krishna controlled Himself and returned back.

    Similarly, Jesus was ready for the arrest but His body started shaking and He prayed God to stop the arrest if possible. This shows the effect of the practical situation. But finally He controlled Himself and told God to do as per His will only. Hanuman tore His heart with His own nails to show Rama. This shows the absence of any disturbance in practical implementation. Either you should resist the effect of practical situation in the beginning itself like Hanuman or resist its effect at least after some time like Krishna and Jesus. This is the message of these three incidents.

    Either the firm determination without any disturbance or at least the firm determination after some disturbance should come either in Pravrutti or Nivrutti. If the determination is defeated by disturbance as in the case of Arjuna who wanted to withdraw from the war, only the complete analysis of spiritual knowledge (Gita) can give the firm determination and no other method like breathing exercise or embracing Arjuna or singing songs can remove the ignorance that is covering the intelligence.

    And with that He gave us all hope, that even in a moment where we seem to be going our own a way, a way seemingly more practical, we can overcome and do the Father's will only! I love the Father and the Son for all which they have done for us. Giving His Only Begotten as a sacrifice for our sins, and resurrecting His Son that we might all have faith and believe in His works showed a great mercy upon our heads that we couldn't even measure. It's our salvation that He has given as a gift with His Son, and our redemption that He brings us toward along with the Father. Blessings!
