“Only an instrument in His hands”

I have become ‘spiritual’ since quite some time…

Very often, I have said, that we are only ‘mere’ instruments in His hands. In fact, every thinking man knows this but cannot accept it due to the ‘ego’ that separates one from another. We all are the same, part of the whole. Nobody has seen the Whole unless they have attained liberation..a meeting with God..self-realization..enlightenment or whatever new term discovered to explain the Oneness. There are books in plenty which preach spiritualism, advaita, the Oneness, but to accept this truth of the ‘Whole’, one has to experience it to know it. And that does not come for asking, it cannot result out of training or can be bought over by money, by exercising ‘special’ powers of tantriks etc. It just happens on its own! And there is no justification for it to happen or not to happen!

Everywhere, in each of our activity in daily lives, our contribution is quite meagre when compared to what nature has supplied and what the unseen hand has provided. Does this make sense? Can you analyze what role ‘the situation’ has played in your activity, in our victories or failures? Can you claim that the pros and cons of the situation, other peoples’ contribution, as your own? Don’t you see a ‘collective effort’ happening all the time? Even the ‘Male’ hood cannot be proved being alone! At best, we can only combine things that already exist and coax out of their own natural qualities and properties, a certain result, and then claim vainly that “I” have created something new. Is it not?

The concept of ‘self-surrender’ and the ‘need’ to serve the world ( read ‘others’) are chosen by ourselves to survive, to exist, to progress, to gather wealth/ knowledge/ benefits other than money! Where is the choice to claim that I can do it without others?

Like one is a product of his parents’ decision, result of others’ well wishes,others’ co-operative efforts, sharing of knowledge by others, coupling of energy of others – Is it not a collective effort? Are we not forced to help others to help ourselves? Do we not need others to make ourselves happy?

Are we not only an instrument in His hands? think about it…
