the work puzzle

another of the many major misconceptions

amongst people of this planet is

that one would be free

if only one wouldn't have to work


the truth however is that

as long as one breathes

one would have to do something

it is in the nature of 'be-ing'

even if one doesn't move the body

the mind will wander

sooner or later one will move the body

to quell those desires


people will always have to work

the key is - who will they work for?

self's ambitions or divine will


people also tend to associate

freedom with just financial freedom

they only need to look

at people who have enough money

to never have to work for it again

are they happy ?

they are bored and disgusted

all that they try and do

doesn't get them happiness either


'the self' cannot generate happiness

through its own efforts

without praising/serving the divine


people don't realize that

they are fed up with their jobs

only because these jobs are not

authorised by divine

these jobs are actually

against the multiversal laws/functionings

they serve a system which is inherently evil


if they choose to serve the high & divine

instead of the evil system

the work they do will automatically become pleasant

and soul-enhancing


they have slogans pasted on walls

in schools & institutions

'work is worship'

which need to be all replaced by

'work for divine is worship'

So wonderful how You tackle all the major relevant issues in this world with such objective honesty: work, jobs, ambitions, freedom, truth, divine, happiness (or lack of), praising, serving, the nature of being, etc..

You put all the pieces of the puzzle together to form a really clear & comprehensive picture of what karma means and how one can practically atune their lives to divine.

So knowledgeable and compassionate of You to always make that bridge between everyday life and divine tangible and plausible for the present!

Narayan Narayan!

i bow. This Plog is such a revelation into the stark reality of existing in this world P! reading this over and over as the Power of Your Truth sinks in deePer and deePer every time!
the necessity of work, and the absolute import of working for Divine Will as opposed to the self's petty ambitions and desires. Jobs being so unfulfilling as they go against all that is Divine. financial freedom being a total fallacy! The fact that the self can't create happiness on its own, it is Praising and serving Divine that generates happiness! There is so much that You address here! Your words sPeak miles of wisdom. You are so generous to share Your all gnoing observations that one would not be able to recognize or comPrehend otherwise. i bow at Your enlightened feet. dhanyavad P. Narayan! Narayan!

Your straightforward PertinenT words strike at the core! You clearly show the choice that one can make... Either one serves the divine or the evil!
And shamefully one has and is in many ways serving the anti-divine...
