Oh yes, Life is a Cocktail. It has 3 ingredients. And the fun or the beauty or the tragedy is that you can’t say no to it. You got to drink it, whether you like it or not!! Three cheers to life🍷🍷🍷
Ingredient 1 — GOD’S PLAN
God, the Creator, has a plan for His creation and for His children. And is the first ingredient of the Cocktail, we call our life. Many saints and sages have talked of this and so have many philosophers and learned men through the ages. And I leave it to you to explore, expound or understand that. I too have my point of view on this and someday i might write more about it.
Ingredient 2 — Soul’s Agenda
I am told every soul comes to earth to learn and to grow. But most of times maya, ego or the illusion makes it forget its plan or its native nature and it gets entangled in the drama of life.
So our soul’s agenda gets mixed with God’s plan and the story of our life gets more complex.
Ingredient 3 — Karma
The third ingredient of the cocktail is our karma. That is our actions and choices of this life and of many past incarnations.
And this makes it a very heady cocktail. An irresistible cocktail. And this also makes our life extremely complex.
My take on life …
I think God, The Creator has written a huge and complex software programme. The first and the biggest of all codes 😇 It has infinite variables and combinations.
This programme processes all our actions ( trillions of actions of billions of people, everyday) and balances these with a reaction (cause and effect). Next it factors in the soul’s agenda and writes the next chapter of the journey of our lives. And finally it looks at His plan for us and fine tunes the story.
And the fun begins 😊
When I realised all this 15-20 years back I thought to myself : I don’t know what is God’s plan for my life and I have no clue about my soul’s agenda. Whatever comes to me from my past, my karma I shall bear gladly. Let me do my best today and let go.
That is how my day to day, my practical spirituality developed. It is simple :
1. Non Judgment: How can we ever judge anyone or any situation? We have no clue about God’s plans and souls agendas.
2. Living in the Now: I can’t undo my past. I can’t do nothing about my future. The only thing I have in my hand is this moment. This NOW. Let me do my best and let go.
Do your best and let go my friend. He knows what He is doing and running the world is His Responsibility not yours or mine.
Keep it simple : Be joyous and spread joy. And enjoy the cocktail we call life 😊💕🍷
