Cutting Chai with Bhawana Somaaya - Day 478

Drama of life

Those who imagine that the Impersonal cannot manifest itself in a personal form are in effect denying its omnipotence and the possibility that man can commune with his Maker. The Lord has often appeared in living tangibility before true devotees. Down the ages He has materialized Himself before the gaze of his devotees in whatever forms they hold most dear. 

The Lord yearns to behold each man playing perfectly his given role on earth. It is by misuse of free will that human beings thwart the divine plan. Absence of the clamor of the egotistical desires enables us to hear and heed the guiding voice within. Free from self-will, men of wisdom carry on their activities in effortless accordance with God’s design.

“Not as I will, but as Thou wilt,” Jesus prayed. No Karma* accrues to the man who rightfully enacts his part in the drama of earthly life.

Divine recollection is the simplest way to achieve God-communion. Our inner assertion of spiritual identity is sufficient to operate the law for fulfillment of prayers. This law has been utilized by saints of all lands. From the depths of his own experience, Christ was able to give us this glorious assurance:

“If ye have faith, and doubt not . . . if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into sea, it shall be done. And all things whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
