Very recently, somebody asked me this question: why should God make me miserable? Why should God make me sad? But God doesn’t make us miserable or sad. We make our self miserable and we make our self sad through attachments to people, to things. Something becomes very dear to us, somebody becomes very dear to us and when we don’t have that or  when we lose that, we become miserable. Why do we blame God? God did not create that attachment. God only created samsara and when God created samsara, he gave us the option to be in samsara or to be in Nirvana. Nirvana doesn’t have the sense pleasures. It has absolute bliss, aananda. Samsara has the sense pleasures, but it also has the misery and the sadness, along with the gladness. So, what is your choice? Do you want to be in samasar and be glad and sad? In samsara, there is going to be day and night, pleasure and pain, loss and gain, sun and rain; the choice is yours - to be in samsara and to face the sadness or to go to nirvana, escape from samsara and realize the ultimate bliss and joy.

Don’t blame God in any case, because God is not controlling the every day actions of this samsara. This samsara is a drama; it’s a movie, it’s going on and on and on. There are millions of people, just imagine - God trying to control 8 billion people - what each one of us  is doing every day, morning and night; what happens to me today, what happens to you tomorrow and what will happen to somebody else the day after tomorrow. Imagine, how can God control everything? It’s impossible. Yes, there is a computer program, it’s all automated. Its automatic and this is controlled by the law of cause and effect or Karma, but a) don’t blame God for your misery and b) realize that samsara means sadness.
