God has a singular way of teaching us directly. God creates every situation we find ourselves in. Every situation arises to show us what needs to be addressed within us. Every situation brings clarity because it causes what is inside of us to reveal itself. When someone comes before us and makes us mad, it is happening ONLY to show us that there is anger within us that needs to be addressed. It has nothing to do with the other person. God created a circumstance to reveal what needs to be addressed within us.
God teaches us every day by creating a day full of situations. Yes, there is karma involved, but the purpose of it all is to release what causes resistance within us and purify us, allowing the Self to be experienced. When there is anger, jealousy, envy, greed, hatred, judgment etc…. within us, it will be aroused, stimulated and revealed through circumstances. God will continue to create situations to show it to us. When we realize what is happening and begin to accept God’s sign posts, we will feel immense relief.
So next time we feel mad, or frustrated or hurt, or jealous, or judgmental, realize that it is God showing us what we have within us. It is never an outside event or person or situation causing our reaction. That reaction can only arise if it already exists within us, waiting to be activated. God is activating a samskara, an impression that exists within us. This understanding allows us to release the other person or circumstance from their responsibility and realize they are God’s vehicle enlightening us by revealing what lies within us. When we feel ‘activated’ in a negative way, that is our blessing because with that understanding we can liberate ourselves.
