The Cause of Sorrow

Post by AiR_Ravimelwani on Fri Dec 25, 2015 10:59 am

What is the cause of sorrow?

Sometimes, in the entire scheme of things in this world, we donít seem to realize why sorrow was created.

Well, if this world were full of joy, bliss and happiness, then we would all truly forget God. It is sorrow that reminds us of our master, our creator, our God, otherwise most of us wouldnít think of God at all. It is when there is a tragedy, when there is pain, when there is sorrow that the first thing we think of is God, because we donít know what to do. We donít know where to go. We have no solution to the problem; it is sorrow which makes us turn to God. There is a beautiful poem, which says that if we went to God without sorrow, then where would be the need for sorrow? Isnít it true? So, sorrow has been created in this world so that we do not forget God.

On the other hand, if one were to look at it, the moment we remember God, we realize God and we become one with God, sorrow disappears. There is no need for sorrow, because we realize we are the divine spirit, the atman, the soul.

The pure nature of the soul is to be fearless, worriless, immortal and once we realize that we are the divine spirit and the soul, then where is the question of sorrow? We get into a state of sat chit anand or a divine bliss that comes from the knowledge of the truth that we are consciousness. Therefore, we must understand the root cause of sorrow and we will be full of joy.

Sorrow or grief is a part of the human existence and trust in the divine isn't going to change that. Nothing can ease the pain and suffering that first comes from the physical loss of someone loved.
