Over 22 lakh people have been infected with the coronavirus and over 1.5 lakh have died. Life has come to a standstill in most countries. Humans have experienced tremendous loss at all levels. Everyone is desperately trying to avoid getting infected with the coronavirus.
1. No doubt science has made astonishing progress in all fields, yet, it has limitations in controlling the dreadful calamity of coronavirus : Scientists, intellectuals, etc. are wondering – How did this calamity come about and how to get rid of it ? Scientists are conducting research round-the-clock, and intellectuals are giving various reasons for the outbreak. This highlights one thing – science has made astonishing progress in all fields, yet, it has not been able to control the dreadful calamity of coronavirus. Hence, it shows that science has limitations.
2. Seekers should face the current situation with faith that God is in control and He does everything for our welfare ! : If we think from a worldly point of view, every situation is either good or bad. However, the truth is ‘Creation’ functions only according to the system laid down by God. God is the ‘Doer’ of everything that happens in this world. He does everything for our welfare.
We cannot decipher the underlying objective in some situations, especially what could be happening beyond time. Hence, avoid unnecessary intellectual discussions just looking at it superficially. When not a single leaf can move without God’s wish, wouldn’t there be some Divine purpose behind such situations ? Therefore, seekers should contemplate on what is God trying to teach us through such situations. If spiritual practice is performed, due to God’s grace one can remain calm and blissful even in difficult situations. Eventually, God will give us an understanding of the underlying objective in all situations.
O’ Seekers ! In the present unfavourable situation avoid unnecessary intellectual discussions; remember – ‘Whatever happens, happens for good’ with unwavering faith, and stay blissful !
