and sorrow coexist with each other! In absence of one the other
simply could not exist! Both happiness and sorrow are two sides
of the same coin. Duality is part of nature... the cosmic system!
If we have day...
we also have night! If we have fire... we also have water! If we
have God... we also have equivalent Satan! This is how the cosmic
system maintains itself... rather balances itself! At any given
moment of time the sum total of the whole cosmos must remain zero!
Imagine if only
happiness existed in the world. In absence of sorrow... how would
one judge the importance of happiness! In absence of sorrow Happiness
would become meaningless... lose its meaning! Only when we suffer...
we realize the importance of happiness... never otherwise!
It is only by
experiencing sorrow and happiness intermittently life moves ahead
in the cosmic system! This was how the theory of evolution was put
forward by God Almighty. It simply cannot be that we continue experiencing
happiness all the time.
If we look at
the job of a blacksmith... he first picks an iron rod... immerses
it into burning fire... then beats it to give shape... again puts
it back into fire... then beats it to final shape! Finally the blacksmith
immerses the shaped object into a bucket of cold water.
For the period
the iron rod was put in fire and beat... it was time for sufferings!
The moment the shaped iron was put in a bucket of cold water...
it was time to experience happiness! This is how life moves on in
the cosmic system!
If only happiness
existed in the world life would have completely lost its meaning!
Why? The whole cosmic system would have become monotonous... gradually
decayed and died! To preserve the sanctity of life God Almighty
ordained a journey of both sufferings and happiness!
