Fortune is something that each one of us crave for,don’t we?Is it gifted or earned?.Well!! In simple words fortune means having the best or achieving all that one sets out for.But then why are some people more fortunate than others? Can one change one’s fortune? The answer to these tedious questions lies in understanding that fortune is not a matter of chance, a stroke of good luck or a sudden windfall. Neither is fortune or misfortune caused by another person or event. But still, there are many who feel that despite putting in lot of efforts , fortune eludes them. Such people must realize that through our good deeds and pure feelings we can definitely create a good fortune.
So what is the mantra for creating good fortune?.Its simple! To accumulate good fortune it is important that the actions that we perform are righteous and, more importantly, free from selfish expectations and ego. Usually we expect others to change or co-operate with us before we are willing to change ourselves and give support. But,if we give something after taking something then it does not accumulate any fortune. Hence the greatest need of the time is to be good even when others are not so. To do this we need to make a firm promise that no matter what comes we have to change and do our best even in adverse situations. In order to create a good fortune a person must be the master of the self. One who is dependent on material comforts, salvation, name and fame, bondaged by habits, sanskars, relationships etc. which are short-lived cannot experience blessings and inner joy that come from good karma.
Another easier way of accumulating fortune is by having a merciful attitude and humility in service. Having mercy means not to criticise the weaknesses of others but to forgive them or to have good wishes for them and to inspire them to imbibe the qualities they lack.When we are merciful and humble, we will be good to even those who may not be so good to us.Remember !! Negative feelings for the self will create unfortunate situations and negative deeds. Hence, by maintaining the consciousness of being an instrument of Supreme, by being merciful to others and by always thinking of giving the best to all in an unlimited way ,we can accumulate unlimited fortune for several millennia..
