A great philosopher ‘Bulle Shaah’ once said something about sins and repentance.
He says that as soon as we gain consciousness in this life, we get tangled in various vices like selfishness, greed, anger, desires, lust etc. While satisfying these vices of ours, we commit many sins by hurting feelings of others, causing harm to others. We keep on adding to our sins and they all count as our karmas.
But, when we look back and realise what we have done, we see that we can’t change things, we can’t undo what we did and hence, look for peace and solace in God. In anyway, we have to face the karma. What goes around, comes around.
So, Bulle Shaah adds to it by saying that we try to find relief in pilgrimage. But, as many times we may go to various pilgrim centres to repent for whatever we have done, Karma never leaves us and we will have to pay for what we did.
He says, what’s done is done and now we need to look forward and never repeat the same mistakes again. We must let go of our ego. Only then can we find God, only then can we connect with him. And until we get close to God and get some godliness within us, Karma will keep on showing its face again and again.
He also says that we should try to find a world of our own where there are no vices, no comparison with others, no rat race, but we are focussed only on God, godliness and our journey. When we enter such a world where there is no difference or division on the basis of caste, creed and religion, we get onto a journey full of light and clarity towards our ultimate aim. Always have faith and belief and be devoted to God. If we can do that, we will see that all of our karmas and ill deeds will stop following us and we will be free.
The only way to get connected with God is by having love and warmth within us and be devoted to the service of others and the humanity.
Thank you for listening to me with love and patience.
