    Why is my live full of problems related to money, relations, stress etc? Why do all the decisions that I take always go wrong?
    ==========================================================
    Ans) Man proposes and God disposes to show that you should not be too much involved in the worldly affairs and that you should turn to Him. The failures in the world show that God is very much interested in your case and is constantly trying to divert you towards Him. The failures and problems are real friends, who will turn you to God. The success with fame is the real enemy, which drags you away from the God. When Lord Krishna asked His aunt, Kunthi, to ask for a boon, she asked Krishna to continue only problems in her life. Her argument was that she remembered the Lord always in difficulties. She wants to remember God continuously. All the things in this world proceed according to the wheel of deeds (Karma Chakra).

    You cannot change the destined route of things in this nature. They reflect the systematic administration of rules and regulations laid down by the Lord. You cannot change the nature of the external atmosphere. You must cut your mental attachment to the external atmosphere and remain peaceful. With the peaceful mind, you must concentrate on God. You are standing in the sea and meditating upon the Sun. You cannot stop the waves. The waves in the sea should not move your mind. Your body or your cloths may be moved but not your mind. For this you must think that you are not the clothes and you are not the body. You are the soul, which is pure awareness. All the external bonds are related to your body and mind (feelings) only. This is called as self-realization through self-analysis. Sankara stressed this first part of the spiritual path because this is common to all the human beings in this world. The attainment of God is the second part of the path. Mental worry is like fever.

    Attainment of God is like attaining special strength. All the fever- patients want to get rid of the fever. After liberation from the fever, some of the patients may try to get special strength by taking special tonics. Ramanuja and Madhva stressed this second part of the spiritual path through the propagation of devotion. But, the first part is common to all the patients as stressed by Sankara. The self-analysis is like the anti- biotic medicine for the fever. First you must get rid of the fever. Without sub-siding the fever, you cannot proceed for tonics to attain special strength. For the first part, there is no need of even the concept of God. Getting rid of the fever is peace. Attaining of God is bliss. Peace is required to get the bliss. Peace should not be mistaken as bliss. The soul is in your body only. If you attain the soul, you have attained your money, which is misplaced, in your house.


    When you get it, your worry is removed and you become peaceful. You need not become happy because it is your money only. But when you get some money on the road, outside your house, you are happy. The first part is avoiding loss and second part is attaining profit. The Advaita scholars are very happy when they have found their own misplaced money in their houses. They feel as if they have attained money from others. They are satisfied with ‘ No loss’ and feel that itself is the profit. They invest money in business and want their original money only at the end of business. They say that this is only the maximum profit. They deny the merchants who have more money as profits. Ofcourse, these innocent scholars are better than the merchants who are in loss. They are better than mentally worried people. But they think that peace is the bliss. For them, ‘no loss’ is the only profit. I am therefore, advising you to take the anti-biotic, which is the self- analysis as the first drug. Even for this drug to act properly and immediately, grace of God is essential as said by Sankara (Eeswaraamugrahaadeva…).

    peace

    - if you can not change the destined route of things, then what is the purpose of turning to Krishna if your life is already mapped out by him/her??

    - when one attains GOd, does the individual take the place of God??

    - If no loss is the only profit, then what is attaining the God level considered........a loss or a gain or neither??

    It's true. Many failures in people's life is the Father trying to show them His Way and how if they continue down their own, they won't profit. Maybe in the material world they will, but in life eternal, they will not.

    So one must have the faith we have be given as graceful mercy, in the Son and the Father for the sacrifice on the tree. And one must have belief in all of the Fathers works and creation, and His bringing the Anointed Son back to life eternal when He was resurrected. One must have works in faith, and keep the commandments faithfully. Through this, we'll always have salvation and redemption is not far.

    Believe in the truth, and He will set you free. Blessings!:)
