Among all God’s creations, we human beings alone have the ability to see the invisible, to do the impossible and to achieve the unbelievable. Many a times, we fail to realise that our real self is much more capable and powerful than what we think.
Once you realise this, you will start seeing life in a totally different tangent. Most of the problems in life become a problem when you think that you need to handle it alone. Be it a financial situation, a relationship problem or a health issue, you are unsure how to face it or come back to life. But you need to realise that you are not alone. You are always connected to the divine power which is present everywhere, every time and in every one of us.
Many people ask me this question: If I am a part of God or God is a part of me, then why do I suffer? Let me tell you this very clearly, God is not a part of you or you are not a part of God; everything is made up of this universal consciousness which some people call as God or a universal energy. I am not talking about the God with a name or a form. You are a combination of a physical and non-physical body which means physically, you have a body which has no power, and there is an invisible power present in you but that cannot bring any changes to your life by itself. It can only give you the all power to bring changes you wish to see in your life. So in simple words, God will not work for you; it will work with you.
We are blessed with the power to change our life only when we realise the truth about karma. Life is not what you have but what you experience with what you have. And karma is the cause for all the experiences you have; it has the power to control the experience. For example, you cannot enjoy the drive in your luxurious Benz car when you have back pain. Money can buy you medicines, not health; it can buy you pleasure, not happiness; money can get you sex, but not love. All these essentials are decided by your karma, not money.
In simple terms, your destiny is decided by your karma. Every human has the power to change his destiny by changing his karma. Only we can create the future that we want. One has no power to control their karma but has all the power to change the karma. For this, first we should have clarity about what we want to experience in the future.
You have all the power to change your destiny because the God in you is the only God for you, and above all God in you is the only God which has created every creation in this universe. The ultimate realisation is that not only can you change your destiny but realising the real power in you is not just invisible and nonphysical but indivisible. This will help you realise the power within you is the ultimate power through which you can change your destiny.
Through meditation (atma-dhyana), one can raise themselves to divine consciousness and have the power to change one’s destiny in a way one wants to live. It gives us the strength to create people and the surroundings we want to live in. atma-dhyana will help us eliminate bad or negative karma and prepare us to receive the experiences we want to experience in life.
