Spiritual Knowledge for a Better World
Part - 2

By K. Chaya Rao - Bangalore

Man is so involved in his progress in science, making material gains, trying to take control of matters and and others and thus stealing other's energy and so on that he has totally neglected nature and forgotten that it is the best boon given to man. He has also given up the spirtitual aspect of his life.

Most of us see movies and watch the television in our spare time or rather we try to spare most our time for such things. In the stories therein we come across a lot of unimaginable coincidences . Most of us turn down the story as trash because of the coincidences. Little do we realise that such unimginable coincidences occur in our day to day life also and that these bear a great impportance in our life but unfortunately no one considers these. We had heard many a time people saying " he came just in time to save us" "he must be God himself" we felt God had himself come down to help us through that person and so on. We have also heard of miraculours escapes from major accidents and persons coming back to life after being declared dead. The question arises "who is behind these mysetrious happenings?"

In our day to day life we come across many situations which upset us. Then we have the ego problem and the I, my and mine feelings. These also lead to mental upsets even when failures occur in games or small unimportant matters. Fathers get upset if their children do not obey them, male chuvinists feel his wife should be at his beck and call. A feminist feels that her hyusband should dance to her tune if he really loves her. Children want to force their views on their parents and so on. Thus life seems to be a continuous struggle for power. The examples of struggle for power can be seen even in public like politicians, industrialists film stars and so on.

Such struggle for power results in draining of energy by one or the other. The person who is drained of his energy is forever working out means and ways of getting back his energy. Such fights for energy are seen all over the world starting from a single invidual to the Big powers of the world and thus the world has become a stage where control dramas for acquiring power are being enacted.
