Do The Enlightened Sages Behold The Spirit Of God Dwelling Equally In All Living Beings?
Bhagavad Gita Chapter 13 verses 27 and 28 says that the same Spirit of God dwells equally in all creatures.
Lord Sri Krishna says to Arjuna in Bhagavad Gita:
They truly see who behold the Supreme Spirit of God dwelling equally in all creatures and realize that the imperishable soul does not die when the body perishes. (Book: Word of God Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 13 verse 27)
Because one who is consciously aware of the same Spirit of God dwelling everywhere; does not harm one’s Self-soul by one’s own self, and therefore attains the highest good. (Book: Word of God Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 13 verse 28)
The same Spirit of God resides equally in all living beings, and when the Spirit finally departs from the body, the body becomes lifeless and dead.
Life is a gift of God, and human beings misuse this gift to follow useless and selfish pursuits for their personal motives and sensual gratifications.
How many people thank God that they are alive today, to fulfil their destiny and purpose of life?
Today before you think of saying any unkind or rude words;
think of someone who cannot speak;
Before you complain about the taste in your food;
think of someone who has nothing to eat;
Before you complain about your husband or wife;
think of someone who has no companion, and is lonely in sickness and in life;
Today before you complain about your life;
think of someone who died in childhood, and did not see the joys of youth;
Before you complain about your children;
think of someone who wants to have children, but they are barren;
Before you argue about your dirty house; and that someone did not clean or sweep;
think of those people who are living on the streets and have no house;
Before you complain about the long distance, you have to drive your car to reach home;
think of someone who has to walk the same distance on foot, because he does not have money for the bus ticket.
And when you are tired and complain about your job;
think of the unemployed and the disabled; and those who wished they had your job;
But, before you think of pointing a finger, or condemning another;
remember that none of us are without sins; and we all are answerable to our Creator;
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down;
put a smile on your face, and thank God you are alive and still moving around in the world;
Life is a gift; live it, and be grateful to God for all the bounties and the mercies that you enjoy and take for granted.
