Jaya Guru Datta. English summary:
Jaya Guru Datta.
We discussed that we all have ancestral lineage. If we traced back our lineage, the root of our lineage is a Maharishi (great saint). We also discussed that, that saint is the son of the creator, Brahma. Since that creator came from the Parabrahman, it is evident that the real root of your lineage is Parabrahman. That is very clear here.
It means that because you have come from the Parabrahman, you are Parabrahman yourself. Another question crops up here. Who, then, is doing these good deeds and bad deeds? It is your desire that’s doing these. You will not feel like believing this. The one who does bad deeds says, “How can this be possible? I don’t know what is right and what is wrong. God is the source of all my thoughts”. How fascinating! “He is making me do all these things. Is it fair for him to punish me after making me do all these things? It is He who made me do this things. It is his fault”. About 99% of the people talk like this.
Observe one thing carefully here: Did you commit the deed deliberately because it felt good and tasted sweet or did you commit the deed with the intent to obey the command of God who is seated in your heart? Remember this well. If you committed the act deliberately, you cannot escape the punishment or the reward for it.
You did commit the act deliberately, “It’s my wish, I want to hurt them” . That means you did it deliberately. Will God sit in your heart and ask you to hurt them? No. You are creating these thoughts. If you did these acts on your own accord thinking “I wanted to do this”, you cannot escape the consequences – good or bad. You have to experience them. It is your desire playing out. Why would God desire to hurt someone? Why would he use you to hurt them? He would do it himself if he had to. Instead of asking you to hurt him, God would deal with them directly. So, since you are saying that you are bound by God’s command, continue to be bound by it experience the punishment for that deed. But, then you say, “Why are you punishing me? You made me commit these deeds. God made me commit these deeds.” If you feel this way, that God made you do these deeds, then experience the punishment too that God is giving you. Don’t question when god is punishing. That means, continue to bound to God’s command and experience the punishment. You kept saying that God was giving you commands from within to commit those deeds, “It is not mine, I don’t to this, God is making me do this”. Okay, God is the one who is also punishing you.
If you say, “No, God came to me in my dream, God is making me do this, he asked me to borrow money from you and not repay”, what if the lender says, “Yes, God is prompting me from within to beat you up. Why, if God could come and tell you to not repay the debt, why won’t he come and tell me to beat you up? He asked me to flog you with a whip. I am taking mercy and using a small stick”? So, experience punishment as well.
