A man with lot of difficulties in his life met the God. He thought that he was the only one having lot of difficulties in his own life and rest of the people living a smooth and swift life. The conversation between the God and “that man” has started.
God, “what is your problem” ?
Men, “I have lot of issues, difficulties in my life. I can’t bear any more”.
God, “How much ?”
Men, “lot … lot of issues and difficulties which are always creating hurdles making me to live a unsatisfied life, only for me, why?”
God, “so you mean that only you are suffering with issues and difficulties” ?
Men, “yesssss, no one except me…….”, he replied sarcastically.
God, “I will plan a session tomorrow. Please bring all your issues or difficulties in a jute bag and meet me after two days in the same place and I order rest of the human beings who thinks the same way like you in this Universe to do the same”
Men, “How can I touch and feel those things. It’s Intangible huh”?
God, “No son. From today you can see your problems through your bare eyes. You can touch them and feel and store them anywhere”.
Men, “Thank God, so that I can throw it away ?
God, “Nay. You can’t. Those are all your Karma effected things. You cant throw it or erase it as well.
Men. “Fine God. I will do”
That men put all his issues and difficulties in a jute bag and carried aback of him. He witnessed a large number of gatherings in the same way carrying their respective bags.
Suddenly God appeared in front of them. He incarnated Himself as a XXXL size in the sky to reach the world audience and started to speak.
“Good evening folks. Hope you are doing good”
“Idiot” some one told in the gathering but God tolerated that. Forgiven.
“I made a big wall over there in which there are a number of nails were put up. Go there and hang all your jute bags over there and come and assemble in the same place”.
“Useless super power being” some one told in the gathering but God again tolerated.
Everyone rushed to the place and placed their jute bags assuming that their Karma or issues of life would end on that day itself. It took few hours for them to assemble. God appeared.
“Great. Lot of jute bags. I have an announcement for all of you”
Everyone was curious.
“I am going to switch off this place into dark for some time and in the mean time everyone should take their own jute bag where they kept”.
All thought that this was totally an insane.
God switched off the area into dark. Everyone rushed and took their jute bags. On the way to the assemble area our hero “that man” was felt the weight of the jute bag was so heavy before. Everyone assembled with their own jute bags.
God appeared and told, “the bag you are holding now is not yours, but of your fellow citizens. You all interchanged your jute bags without your knowledge” !
Everyone shouted. They can’t bear the weight of the jute bag and they requested to God to give back their own jute bag which is bearable to carry.
“That man” appeared before the God as the representative for the whole mass and told, “Our issues and difficulties or Karmas should be dealt by us only not anyone else, I have finally understood. Kindly bless us with our old jute bags and remove the tangibility of our problems and we are ready to face the ground reality in our day to day life .Bless us with lots of confidence and will power”.
God, “Stay blessed, lets follow your heart and don’t go with the flow; only dead fishes will go with the flow; Warriors in life should not hesitate to face the challenges what life gives you”.
