This worldly life is worth understanding. Who are these uncles, aunts, wives, etc.? They are all accounts on the books of karma created in the previous life. No one has realized this. If they did, they would start clearing these accounts of credits and debits. Because people do not have this realization, they create new accounts in the process of clearing old ones. If there is a pending account with an uncle, its discharge is inevitable, and the uncle is just a nimit.
This world is not meant for suffering, it is yours to enjoy. One experiences only that pleasure or pain which is in his account. Why does one experience only happiness and another only misery? It is because of the kind of accounts he has brought with him. Everyday we hear stories in the news: A man is robbed in a taxi. A husband and wife were tied up and robbed in their apartment, etc. There is no need for you to fear it will happen to you too, after reading such news. This projection (vikalp) of fear verily is the fault and will have to suffer its consequences. Instead, why not move about naturally? You will be robbed only if it is in your account, otherwise no one has the time to meddle with you. 'The fault is of the sufferer', hence you should go about without any fear. The newspapers will report all kinds of things, but does that mean you have to be scared? It is a good thing that the divorce rate is low, but when it increases, people will find a cause to worry about their own divorces! Do not be afraid even if a hundred thousand people are robbed. There is no one above you as your boss.
If an astrologer reads the palm of your hand and tells you that you have four situations that could cause death (ghaat), then you have to be careful during those situations. Now if you overcome one such situation and find yourself living, then feel happy that there is one less in the balance. In the same token, when someone insults you or you have to face an unpleasant situation, you should be happy that there is one less account in the remaining balance. Instead, people become engrossed in such situations. That should not happen. If you have an account of a thousand abuses and someone abuses you, you should tell yourself that at least one is gone from the thousand, now there are only 999 left! You should not have the burden of, 'Why did he insult me?' If you surrender your miseries to 'Dada', then you are free. 'We' have come to take away the miseries of this whole world. Those who want to surrender, surrender them to 'Dada'. Tell Dada, "Dada, I have always been foolish so please be there for me." And Dada will always be present.
*Chandubhai = Whenever Dadashri uses the name 'Chandubhai' or the name of the person Dadashri is addressing, the reader should insert his or her name for exact understanding.
1) No difficulty can come to you (your way). If the mind wavers, difficulty will embrace you! That is all, the law of the universe is just this.
2) In this world, no one else is at fault. They are but merely 'instruments' in delivering the effects of our karmas to us. The suffering is yours but it comes by way of others. How can you blame the postman who delivers news of your son's death?
3) There is a thorn lying on a footpath and hundreds of people walk by but none get hurt by the thorn. However, when Chandubhai* is walking along, the thorn sticks in his foot. Vyavasthit is very precise. It delivers suffering only to those with past accounts. It brings together all the circumstances including the nimit and the victim.
4) In thinking about the future, if one experiences fear, then artadhyan has occurred for sure. In artadhyan, one continues to worry about himself, 'What will happen if this occurs? What will happen if that occurs?' He will continue to have fear of this kind.
5) Only attend to the present time. The past is gone, so why dig into it? The past that is gone, not even a fool will dig into it. The future is in the hands of Vyavasthit so live in the present. If you are drinking a cup of tea, enjoy that tea because the future belongs in the hands of vyavasthit.
