well as in low, in big matters and in small, there is hardly any will to agree except perhaps to disagree. It is a topsy-turvy world. Master has stated that he had his own pack of sufferings and miseries and that article of his should be read and reviewed several times.
Kartavyadrishti: While the apparent perception gives some grim picture if we look at it from the angle of duty the problem does not seem to be so. Further when one comes to think of it, the picture need not appear so dark. The suffering is obviously a result of our own past thoughts, words and deeds. When we think an evil thought, utter an evil word or do an evil deed, we do not think of the consequences. We easily forget what we have done. But when it comes to facing the music, we squeal. We richly deserve what we get. Suffering arises principally from selfish desire. It will cease when such desire ceases. The Law of Karma, of cause and effect, is a just and merciful law. But for it, man would be more and more of an animal. Because of it, man tends to be more and more divine. It is a law which makes for progress.
