During our journey of life, we continuously keep performing deeds almost every other second. If as an administrator, one is told to keep track of the deeds of few persons for just one day, believe me, that person will go crazy in maintaining the record.
God is a great mathematician and everything in God’s working is based on clear logic! Mind you, bribes and back-end entry is not allowed….
To put things in perspective, let us imagine that depending on the nature of each deed, they fall in one of the two buckets:- Good deed or Bad deed.
Be sure that for all the Good deeds collected in your bucket throughout your life, you will be paid positively by God in one way or the other. You may get some unexpected help, win a jackpot, receive the love that you longed for; ideally, you will receive something good in return of your good deeds. Though, as humans we have no control on what we will get in return to which deed, so stop doing good deeds with a target result in your mind! Just keep doing good and leave the rest to God. He knows better for us than we know! Agree?
We all know that in Hindu holy scripture “Geeta”, Lord Krishna told Arjun to keep doing good deeds and not worry about the outcome!
Now, same happens with Bad deeds too! For whatever you have collected in that bad deeds bucket, you will have to bear the agony, pain, hardships, unexpected losses, etc. Again, what we will get for which deed is not known to us.
Before leaving this body, we have to balance out and bear the fruits of our good deeds as well as agony and pain of our bad deeds too. Mind you, there is no provision of setting off the bad deeds by doing more good deeds. Confused?
In maths, remember the rule, two negatives can get added but the sign will still be minus! Same way, to get rid of that negative sign, we have to get rid of the bad deeds from our life completely, there is no short cut to that!
Reaching a state of Zero has no shortcuts. One cannot bargain to cut down on bad deeds for the accumulated good deeds done! We have to bear the result of both!
To look at the positive side, if your good deeds bucket is over flowing, then, even when you are bearing the pain and agony for your bad deeds, God will send help in one form or the other.
Remember that man who helped you in the hospital on your last visit get you appointment out of line or the kind lady who gave you lift to the airport while you were stranded in a foreign land to catch your flight on time.
So start getting mindful when doing anything to ensure that going forward, we are not adding anything to our bad deeds bucket and keep filling out good deeds buckets so that it overflows all the time. Then, the left over from the bad deeds will be taken care smoothly, isn’t it?
Have you wondered the reason why some people who are so happy and contented in their life, may be they have emptied their bad deeds bucket and now enjoying the fruits being offered to them for the accumulated deeds in their good deeds bucket! Wow, I would like to reach that stage soon! Won’t you?
Let us try to balance things now and may be we will reach a stage of “Zero”- a state of absolute balance, to get eternal peace, freedom from the journey of life and death! Oh, this got intense!
Hope I got you thinking! If I did, please do leave a comment down. Looking forward to know your thoughts and comments to explore this journey of life together!
