Radhanath Swami on A Humbling Experience

The great problem we face in life is that we all want to be in control of our destiny, today and tomorrow. But the problem is, no one is in control. There are higher powers, dictating circumstances upon everyone; we have control over our future destiny by our activities today. That is the law of karma. But what is coming upon us is something not always under our control. Ultimately we all are being controlled by time. You loose your beauty, you loose your memory, you loose your physical capacities, does any one want to be old? But can anyone stop the process? It is a humbling experience to live in this world, because we are not the controllers.

  9. Whoever we may be,whatever activity we may be performing but the true fact is that we are not the controllers of these things.Yes by connecting ourselves to the transcendental activities under bonafide guidance we can change our future.This is how God helps those who want to help self.
