Reap what you sow, but sometimes even better or worse!

The inspiration to write this article came from the picture below.

I will translate it for those who are not able to read Hindi. It means:

Who can benefit from “Always asking for happiness…”

After all you “only” get what’s in your fate

Don’t be scared my heart…

Here, nobody can hurt you just by wanting to hurt you…

You only get what you sow…

Praise the lord…

Everything is in his hands!

There are several truths in this small picture. You “only” get what’s in your fate. You reap what you sow. Everything is in his hands! And nobody can hurt you by wanting to hurt you!

Every statement is so deep and hard to comprehend!

Yet, I will make an attempt…

Suppose you want to grow a plant. You decide to put the seed in the soil. And even if YOU don’t put it in the soil or are not able to put it in the soil, maybe the wind will just pick it up from one place and put It in the soil! Anyways, somehow it has to get into the soil to start growing! (Either through your karma or through the wind’s karma!) Or just by the forces of nature… like a bird dropping the seed somewhere or some squirrel or you just never know…How! Just because you want the seed to get into the soil or you want to grow so many plants and be happy… doesn’t mean you will have the time, energy, resources and fate to plant it! There are many many criteria…

That explains the first statement – Who can benefit from “Always asking for happiness”…

The next statement says, “After all you get what’s in your fate”

This means you will get to grow that seed/plant if it is your fate. You cannot grow a plant just because you have decided to plant the seed. There are many many factors for the seed to germinate, for the little baby plant to come out, for the plant to erupt out of the soil. It has to be the right weather, temperature, moisture content, sunlight, soil texture, quality of the seed and so many other factors. Some deer should not eat the plant while it is growing! So, you get only what’s in your fate. You will only be able to grow that plant till it’s in your fate.

Don’t be scared! – As easy it is to say this, it is the highest form of faith you can have for the lord. Do not be scared!

Nobody can hurt you by wanting to hurt you! – That means if you are ready to grow your plant and even if thousand people want to destroy your plant, they cannot – JUST by wanting to destroy it!

You get what you sow – Once you sow the seed, water it well, take care of the plant, you will reap and get what you sow! You will have the plant growing in your house, because YOU SOWED it!

Praise and worship the Lord!

Everything is in his hands!

The last statement is comprehensible yet incomprehensible!! On one hand, there is karma and on the other hand, there is his will.

Three things may happen- Either you get what you want – Your grown plant or you get something better – maybe a garden- or you get something worse – maybe just dirt…

In either case, there is your karma AND the will of nature that will reap your rewards!

Like they always say, Don’t be attached to the results because the results on your action are not in your hands! Just do karma and have faith in the lord!
