Give me a Break!
This is a story about a man who is ardent devotee of Lord Shiva. Everyday he would go to the temple and pray, “I need a break, I am counting on you. Please I must win the lottery.”
This continues for about one year. Having not won the lottery, he keeps praying, “God, about that state lottery… I have been kind to my wife. I have given up drinking. I have been really good. Give me a break. Let me win the lottery.”
A month later, still no richer, he returns to pray once again. “God, I don’t seem to be getting through you on this lottery thing. I have been using positive self talk, saying affirmations and visualizing the money. Give me a break. God, let me win the lottery.”
Suddenly the heavens open up, white light and heavenly music flood into the temple, and a deep voice say, “Son, give me a break! Buy a lottery ticket.”
Now. Think. It’s easier to laugh at this man. However, what about your own life. Think. Think harder.
Remember, in this world, only the actions will produce the desired results. Sometimes, people waste their time doing wrong actions and produce wrong results.
Well, that’s the time, you must consult the wise men to get clarity on your Life’s Purpose and then take those inspired actions.
Does that mean you should stop praying and believing in God? No. Even while you need a tremendous Faith in God, remember to take the required actions daily as the results are the outcome of your actions.
