Let’s Be a Part of Great Transformation

Many people say that unrighteous people are quickly prospering these days, then why should one do good as per the law of karma? We all know that good always begets good and bad always begets bad and the law of karma is infallible. However, due to the dominance of negative forces in the world the effect of the positive gets clouded but just as the sun keeps shining behind a thick veil of clouds and comes out when the clouds pass, the good deeds can never go un-rewarded even though it may take some time.

Another common question that follows from the above is that why do good people suffer from painful and deadly diseases? Well! we must understand that we are living at the end of Iron Age i.e Kaliyuga when the old karmic accounts of all souls are being settled before they can become pure and get liberation and enjoy complete happiness in the new world. So,we are in a period of transition now when the new world is being established but a lot of suffering is also visible as the old world is moving towards its end.

Good people are also settling their old accounts but they do not suffer so much pain as they have the blessings earned by their good deeds as well as the protection of God. In a world that is rife with violence, crime, fear and insecurity use of force and violent means is seen as the best way to ensure safety and security. But is it right to use violence to get justice or to succeed in a good cause, people ask. It is the law of karma that if we use hatred or violence for any end it will rebound and reflect in our lives in one way or another.

A good cause is good only if it is achieved through good means and noble values. In a practical sense this may sound to be impossible. But as we said earlier that as much as possible one should try to find the root cause of any problem and try to solve it with compassion,  forgiveness, wisdom and patience. So, to win over violence we need to make peace, tolerance, respect and compassion our strong weapons. It does take time and effort but we must not forget a fact that even hard stones are cut by a gentle stream over a period of time.
