Enlightened




"When God did not want us to be united forever, then why did he make us come across in the first part?" A friend close enough, annoyed with her incomplete love story, threw at me. Many of us come across the same question quite frequently.


Though I have been trying my level best to console her, I had no answer to this one. I could not manage one reason for the same. "He is very mean, He plays us all, and He finds it amusing when we cry" she further said.


I aint an atheist, "Come on yaar, don't say like this, He has got something better in store for you" was all I could say, though not satisfied myself. And then the thought struck to me, all spontaneous, when I threw a glance at the opposite wall where the Radha-Krishna stood lost in their love land. I was reminded of something my mom told me years ago- "though Krishna married Rukhmini, He is till date known as Radha's beloved and they are worshipped together."


Yes, His divinity, when on the planet lived as a human being, fell in love with Radha, but could not be united with Her। They are the synonyms we use for love; we worship their love for each other.


I do not mean here that true love, or the relationships people get into is as pure, as high as theirs, all I mean to say is-it is not fair to blame God for incomplete love stories at least, God himself is a victim of the same.


And now since I know it, I feel enlightened, things are way smoother. Even the friend in question too seems kind of convinced with the reasoning.


If you ask my personal opinion, I always have loved Him and believed in Him firmly. I say whatever happens, happens for good. My personal experience with Him has been the same.

Thought provoking. Indeed, everything does happen for a reason. Liked the analogy you drew...

:) Good thing u corrected Dictums to Dicta... Kept on forgetting to remind you!

Yeah I agree when something bad happens there has to be something good to act as a counterbalance. But would it not be better if viewed scientifically,this thing is in accordance with the CHAO phenomenon.

@ Kartz
I juz tried to put down wat i felt, though i know i havent framed it vy nicely to b understood by a layman.. I am glad u caught the freq ;)

N yes dicta.. Thnx to u, i found it over ur blog, though forgot to thank u already.. ecxuse my mean-ness :D

Richa said...

@ Preeti
Excuse my ignorance if u r talking about the butterfly effect, i have googled the CHAO theory and all i could make out was sensitivity has to be randomly based on the inital conditions, if i am not wrong.
I wud say, I aint talking about the reasons behind incomplete love stories, they vary with the conditions and situations, all i need to say is its not that He enjoys making us suffer, may be we made a wrong choice, or juz we aint meant to b united, but atleast He blessed us a few moments to feel that real divine feeling..
Plz elaborate a li'l if I dint percieve it out the way u did.. I would love to know other aspects as well..

Divya said...

damn i had typed out a nice looooong comment and just when i was posting it i got disconnected :(
now i don't even remember what i wrote :(

Divya said...

anyway, i loved the post.. and had never thought of it all that way...
although, blaming it all on Him is so much easier :P when you know its no ones fault, it automatically becomes His!

Richa said...

@ Divya
I m glad u like the post, n its okay though i m gonna miss the spontaneous reaction of urs.
yes, it is much easier to blame him but as ijuz said, i aint aethist. and a being a li'l spiritual n philo (highly unusual with me), with every incidence, my faith grows.. :)

heh he .. aah God love and scars ... i have a lot i can say but i guess the comment section wouldn't suffice .. to e succinct .. i do not believe in jo hota hai acche ke liye hota hai .. and for that matter even God does not say that ..
See in git he beautifully says .. free will has been given to man with some powers .. what he makes o them to what end he uses them is not controlled by me .. I do not interfere there .. it is your karma ..
God has set rules rules of nature .. the moment man tries to overpower nature he is changing the rules and when the rules change so do the results ...
He is not responsible for our actions ... I can sympathise with your friend ... I really can ...

the point being I used to ask the same question till i figured out that nowhere has God defined what is right or wrong .. only Man has .. so you see God does nothing ... he has set his rules and given you free will ... you blame him because well thats the easiest way of deriving strength and pushing the blame on someone else ..
insensitive ??? maybe ... but then what is life ??? and lets be real.. what IS life ?

@ Sid
befor ereplying to ur comment, i did read the link u provided me with me..
To be precise, lemme say i said i aint an aethist, but I aint a vy spiritual person as well..
and how we percieve our love, our feelings, our experinces that depends entirely on our maturity level.. I read somwhere "an avg person falls 7 times in love in his/her life" i guess i have 5 more to go.. ;) :D
I have never put it over the blog, but my first experince was quite bad if u can put it tht way, but still i blv tht god stood by me n he saved me in time for g=takin the wrong decision.. though it was all my decision to walk out, but i seeked strength from Him..
I really do not understand Karma n dharma much, but all i can say is, mere saath jo hua acha hi hua hai.. second time had been a blessing n union is a secondary matter, i treasure the moments i ve spent with him n i alwyas will..
n i did say it here.. it is not right, not fair to blame him - may it be love or wayever, at least i never do.. n those who do, its entirely their wish.. again- the perception..

Hi richa, I dunno how to convey what I exactly feel. Anyways, will give it my best shot. I meant the philosophical aspect of CHAO phenomenon. Dunno if its right or wrong, but got this gyan from one of my profs. Assume I fall in love. We don get along. We break up. That means that is not TRUE love. I deserve someone better. A guy who cannot keep me happy for some say two months, how can I live life long with him?
The basic thing is, you say everything that happens is for good according to HIM. Since I am a bit of an athiest, I say everything is governed by lets say, a force. This force aids us if we do good to others (now or in the previous birth, again if there is any rebirth) and this force gives us TEMPORARY repulsion , or heartbreaks when we have knowingly or unknowingly erred. But these are sure to end up in permanent solutions. I believe in god completely. As a force. Your post was great, but the only point i disagree is with the God part of it, may be just because I dont believe much.
Err.. re-reading this, mera to dimaag kharaab ho gaya. Anyways, try to understand my watever..Else, chill out :) cheers :)

there are options always... ask your friend to move on... after some years she will laugh for what she cried for... it will all look childish..

Chriz said...

thanks a bunch for blog rolling me.. you know one thing? you are blog rolled tooooooo

Richa said...

@ Sid
I am glad you picked my perception.. but still if u got sumthn to say u r more than welcome :)
Cheers!!

Richa said...

@ the army guy
Thnx for dropping in and takin time to key down.. Yes i take your point when u blv in sumthn y search for reasons..
Cheers!!

Richa said...

@ Preeti
Ohkay.. I make out wat u sayin is somewat like Karma.. U say everyting is governed by a force.. I say tht force is God.. People say our Karma decides wat we get in life and wat we dont.. I donot very much know about this stuff.. and u say u r a bit of an aethist, we live in a secular state, we are at liberty to practise our own religion or not at all..
And yes, i agree totally wen u aint happy with a person its right to walk out of the relationship..

Richa said...

@ Chriz
i agree totally..

n thank yousss ;)
