    Tests of God
    God is truth all the activities of God are based on truth only



    If you are able to sacrifice anything and anybody for the sake of God, you need not fear for test. If you studied every chapter in text book, you need not fear for the examination because you can answer any question from any chapter. If you are fearing for test, it means that you are weak in a particular chapter. God is omniscient and knows your weakness. Hence, God gives only the question from that chapter in which you are weak. In worldly studies, the examiner is not omniscient and therefore by chance the examiner may not touch the chapter in which you are weak. But, the case of God is quite different since He is omniscient. He cannot declare you that you are the master of all the text book, unless you are thorough in every chapter. Do not misunderstand God as a cruel examiner.


    God is truth and hence all the activities of God are based on truth only. If you are weak in a chapter and if you are declared as the master of the text book, is it a true declaration? Therefore, God will not test you unless you are able to sacrifice everything and everybody for His sake. But, meanwhile you think that you can prove your highest devotion even though you have not reached that stage. Hence, to make you realize the truth of your false assumption, God conducts the test and proves your failure. In such test, He will not publicize because His aim is not to insult you in the public. His aim is only to make you realize your incompleteness in your achievement, so that you will try to reach the perfection after knowing the truth. If you are not tested, you will continue in your false impression and sit quite without any further effort.

    If you have reached the perfection in sacrifice, God will conduct the test and publicize the result so that the other devotees will take your success as an example. If the successful case is not publicized, then also there is a danger because the devotees may sit quite thinking that such practical achievement is impossible for anybody. As long as you are trying for perfection, God will not touch you with the test. Once you stop in your effort, God will test you and test may be either for your sake or for the sake of public.

    You may say that God already knows whether you are a successful case or a case of failure in the test and hence there is no need of test from God. The test is not required for God. The test is required for the souls. If you are a case of failure, you must know that, so that you will be aware of your actual position in the spiritual journey. You may be thinking high of yourself and the test will reveal the truth so that you will put the effort from the step on which you are actually standing. If you are a case of success, then also the test is to be conducted for the sake of others to see and take you as an example. Therefore, the test is required in both the cases.

    The case of failure is tested for the sake of the tested soul and such test is not for the public. The case of success is tested for the sake of public. God will not test the case which is not at all involved in the spiritual journey. When you have not joined the institution for study, where is the point of conducting test?

    The root cause for the failure in the test conducted by the Lord is nothing but just ignorance of the truth. The basic ignorance of the basic truth is the root cause of the basic concept of limited ownership. First, you think that you are owner of your limited body. Then, you think gradually that you are the owner of your house, wealth and your family members. Slowly, you try to extend your ownership on more area of wealth and more number of souls in the world. Finally, you want to become the owner of this entire creation. Your hidden ambition is proved when Shankara announced the concept of Advaita. On hearing that concept, your hidden ambition came out and you started feeling that you are the God, which means that you are the owner of the creation. You started with the seed, which is the ownership of your body and became a huge tree by thinking that you are the owner of the creation.


    The tree is false because practically you are not the owner of this creation. If the tree is false, the seed must be also false. Therefore, your basic limited ownership of your body is also not true. You cannot control the function of any internal organ of your body. Your ownership is just superficial because you are a temporary owner of the movement of external limbs of your body. Even this external ownership is temporary because if the internal organs fail, any limb of the body will not move. When you are affected with paralysis, even this ownership becomes false. If you can realize in the stage of the seed ego, the further extension disappears.

    I asked a simple question

    Why am i being tested for a life i didn't ask for in the first place?


    I know i'm NOT the owner, if i was the owner people wouldn't suffer the way they do.

    Will you ever be able to answer a simple question without all the other rhetoric? Forget it don't answer that.


    If "your" god is so loving why do people suffer the way the do? What type of test is babies being raped?

    I don't believe God tests, gods do though. There are people on this planet that believe they are above all life, and chosen to use this world's resources as they see fit. They are giving the test and the test is rigged. Would God destroy a piece of itself? NO! but the gods would and do.

    dattaswami1 you said: "The root cause for the failure in the test conducted by the Lord is nothing but just ignorance of the truth." I say it's the gods that need to learn these truths.

    Well if you're tested, It's by the little "g" gods, and it's on your relationship with GOD. Gods distract us with: lies, rape, murder, war, unemployment, ineffective education, etc. they are trying to separate us from GOD. Gods benefit from our separation from GOD, and that we are split into various religions.

    Hellogood, I'm new to DESTEE and I feel awkward talking about dattaswami1's thread. I don't want to change its direction. Dattaswami1 Believes in the TESTs of GOD and I will let dattaswami1 enlighten us further.
