I have heard people say, “I am giving everything to God” or “I have surrendered everything to HIM”. People go to Temple/Gurudwara/Masjid/Church and pray for their desires, their life. Many pray at their home every day, others pray to Him whenever they are in a situation or issue which is to be resolved. In every way we look upto God and believe that He/She is taking care of us and should take care of us.
Then things don’t turn out, even with praying, keeping fast, taking vows and what not. When things don’t turn up the way we wanted to, we just shut ourselves. Some say “God has forgotten me”, others say “Why it is that He does not care about me only and looks after everyone else”, and so on………
But we forget one thing, during our prayers, our talks with Him, during the vows that we take or the fast that we keep; we forget that when we pray, when we vow, when we fast, we are surrendering ourselves and our situations, issues, life symbolically to Him. But do we really surrender????
Surrendering means total belief in every situation, total belief in thick and thin. Trusting His judgement whatever it might be. Surrendering means not thinking about the same old stuff that we prayed for, or kept fast for, or vowed for. But NO!!!! We are beings who are very adjusting. Whenever we have our way we believe and when we don’t, we blame!!!!!!!
Bhagwat Gita preaches action without any attachment to the desire or results. It says “Work incessantly, not thinking about the result or outcome and God will suffice you according to your Karma”. This doesn’t work for many in this too confused world right now. The ways of God are simple and however simple you can keep yourself determines how easily you grasp the higher wisdom of God and work in His frequency.
I think that either FAITH IS THERE OR IT’S NOT. THERE’S NO INBETWEEN THAT. I can see only white and black, no gray for me here. Because I need to keep things SIMPLE!!!!! So when we pray, keep fast and all the other stuffs, we need to believe that our prayer, our talk with Him is heard and whatever will be the best will be delivered. And if we think what we have asked is for our highest good then it will surely be delivered.
Do you think now that you surrender to God. Do you? Then how many times have you shown gratitude after praying to Him. How many times have you said thanx to Him? If you have, you are on the right track and if you have not then you need to find a way to get back to your Faith.
Surrendering means not stop working but keep working without thinking about the result, because you know that it is done already!!!!!
The LOVE called GOD is always there around us. Our Faith determines how much we want Him to walk beside us. So let go and let God in truly…..
