In my years of trial and experience, dealing with various different situations of my followers, I have understood one thing, happiness is an illusion and determination of fortune is a perspective created by every single individual according to his own mind frame. When people start walking on the spiritual path, they started perceiving fortune and misfortune from a different angle and in a different manner. A very common example is when we are happy, even the rains seem to sing and dance in our happiness but when we are in a sunken mood, the sky seems to be pouring down in the form of rains to cry with us in our sadness. In both the situations, the sky and the rains are busy doing their habitual jobs but it is our frame of mind which makes us to conclude according to our heart’s desires and frame of mind at that point of time. Every person sees happiness from his own perspective and even concludes his behaviour according to what suite him the best.
Let us take another example. A man decided to grow cabbages for his living as they were in great demand in the market at that point of time. Since hybrid cabbage seeds were expensive, he decided to grow them in a tray inside his house and transplant them after they would grow a little. As for cabbage seeds it is said that their survival rate is high if they are planted at night. So, he started planting them with a torch in the night and would keep sitting and nursing them just to see them grow like his own babies. Soon all the cabbages grew big enough and he sized them up nicely and began counting money in his head. However, when the time of harvesting came, the prices of the vegetable crashed down to the extent that it wasn’t even worth harvesting and loading them on s truck. The sale price had dropped to such low that it would not even cover the transport costs.
The man, in order to clear up the stock, started distributing his cabbages in the number of five to each family in the village. After having distributed so, there was still a lot of cabbages left, so the man left them to the cattle to eat. Initially he thought the entire process to be such a waste of time and energy but when he saw the cattle relishing over the cabbages as they had never eaten such a juicy vegetable in their life, he felt extremely happy and satisfied.
The idea about this story is that at the time of harvesting, we should try to gather whatever comes out way. It should not be to get someone’s approval either in terms of money or grading, it should be self satisfying, only then will our efforts reap good results for us. Money does not always determine the quotient of happiness that we obtain by doing a deed, similarly fortune and misfortune is how we consider and interpret our situations to be at that particular point of time
