Lifetime Teachings 7- BABA SAYS.....

Jai Sai Master!

There is a general debate that goes on in everyone who do not believe in God and also in those who believe in God. That debate is on- if God has created everything, they why is that there is a differentiation like Good deed and a Bad deed or anything Good or Bad.

Sri Shirdi Sai Baba said the following:

(Translation broadly - God is afraid of Bad and anything Bad is afraid of God. From "Sri Sai Baba's sayings in  Sri Sai Leelamrutam written by Sri Sai Master)
This is a very interesting line, as one can never imagine how God can be afraid of anything bad. One needs to go back to the fundamental to understand what it actually mean.  In the article written by Divyajanani, the understanding of the statement (page 7 of the Sai Baba Magazine) was explained very lucidly.

For every being, there are some fundamental rules of living and abiding by them is the aligning with the nature. In the whole of creation, there are many varieties and many species, and everything has a specific cycle of birth-sustenance-death. Everyone of them have a definitive role to play in smooth functioning of the universe. However, the only being that is different from all is a HUMAN. A human being is endowed with the power of thinking and with that tries to understand the creation. In the process, develops likes and dislikes due to lack of proper understanding. Further to that, the he desires to have more of that he likes and when he does not get it, feels sad, and frustrated. This leads to sorrow. At the same time, when others get what he likes, feels jealous and angry. And this leads to dissatisfaction and unhappiness. All this is nothing but, ill feelings or termed as BAD in life. This is in a way deviating from the norms of life as one is tending to satisfy the desires. The Creator does not like this bad to creep in to a human, as it destroys the very fabric of creation through his dissatisfaction. 

The one who is filled with this Bad can not see the good, and in turn can not see the beauty of this creation or the one who created the beauty. Unless one corrects himself and gets rid of these bad deeds or thoughts, can not see the TRUTH. This is the real meaning of Sri Shirdi Sai Baba's saying. 

Let us try to get out of desire-fear cycle to get rid of the bad thoughts or bad deeds, and become pure to be able to see or realise the TRUTH.

Jai Sai Master!!
