Knowledge is power.
Many people think I did this bad work and I did this Good work. So both will get neutralised. That is not correct. You have to suffer for the bad deeds and you have to enjoy the benefit of good deeds. This is the fact of life.
We should pray to God always but if you are violating Dharma, God will never look at you. He will make you suffer. One should keep this mind and behave accordingly.
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
We should always recall and follow the essence of the saying "Pray to God Oh sailor! but row towards the shore".
It is just like someone seeing a man pushing his cart out of a ditch alone, with difficulty. The man looks t he person or asks him for help. The other person will come and lend a hand in pushing the cart. Together they bring the cart to the plain road. From there the cart man pushes it easily.
In this case who would have come to his help if he himself was not trying and expecting others to do the job?
Our attitude about God also should be like that. We should put our sincere maximum efforts and when needing help should pray to God. We will definitely get help.
That is why our traditional belief is 'Thaan paathi,Deivam Paath"- 'My half-God's half". But our half should come first.
God has enemies blessed by Him for fun and joy.
Good is God, Evil is Devil.
No life without Sun
