BELIEF ON THE DICTUM: THE TOTAL ALWAYS STAYS THE SAME
WHEN THE LOVE OF TWO IS COMBINED THE TOTAL STAYS THE SAME
The sum total of our Karmic deeds
Remain, without doubt unchanged
In any situation and condition
We get what we give to others, by implication
Nothing more and nothing less
Proving that the sum total stays the same.
We can light-up several Deepaks – wicks
With a single wick
Without affecting the potency of the first wick
To light up wicks and emit light
The total effectiveness of the first wick
Remains the same.
When the single drop of rain
Starts from its source
It neither knows its target
Nor the purpose which it will present
Either it falls on the barren earth
Thereby enhancing the fertility of land
Or in the water bodies
Depends on its destiny
When it mixes up with other drops
It forms water bodies
Or through rivers taken to the sea
Which again turns into rain
Thru a process termed as water cycle
Thus the sum total remains the same.
When our offspring falls into a bad company
The task of parents is to show the course so righteous
Through award or thru gentle knuckle
Whence the offspring takes right course at right time
But the sum total of all remains the same.
We’re aware our ego is our weakness index
But some people think to be their superiority complex
The more the egocentric tendency
The lesser the connect with our inner potencies
To wipe out every trace of ego from our system
Till we reach to the detached mindset
Our original chaste-self
Bereft of a feeling of hostility or hate
Thus proving sum total remains the same.
Then same goes with test of truth
Truth could be tested and attested
At any place and time
We know, the totality and reality of truth, in any event
Remains the same
No matter the manner in which we endeavor
To turn and twist the yardsticks
To suit our convenience
To prove the truth wrong
The truth shines as 24 crates of gold for good
Nothing can change the truth
The sum total remains the same.
Similar is the case with our thoughts
The more refined our thoughts
The more refined are the actions we tend to perform
Since there will not be any selfish motive
Proving, in all cases, the sum total remains the same.
We add two plus two summing up to four
Or three plus one
Or four plus zero
Or mincing eight minus four
Or with fraction based mathematic solution
Or using algebraic or arithmetic methods
The result remains the same
You plus or mince or using and method
Or in any way we try summing
Any way or in any way
The sum total stays the same!
The Creator of all creations
Has been very compassionate
Since He takes care of all His Creations
From childbirth to various stages of growth
Ultimately meeting death
And then again recreation
Proving the total stays the same.
Then when we ingest our food
After going through different stages of digestion
Which gives us energy
For the subsistence of our body
In our internal system
If the system functions well
Then conversion of energy is smooth
But whence our digestive system gets impaired
Nothing suits us – even the most nourishing food
Proving that total remains the same.
If we have all comforts of our existence
With the most comfortable beddings
Which we can purchase with the resources we do possess
But cannot in any event purchase sleep
Despite all the comforts available
At our disposable
Alas! The sum total stays the same.
The seed sprouts into an attractive plant
Plant grows into a beautiful tree
After it gets natural bounties
Like water, air and other elements of nature
It gives out beautiful flowers
Flowers to fruits so plentiful and juicy
With one of the by-products being seed
Which again sprouts
Thus completing the whole process
Proving the sum total staying the same
IN NATURE, FLOWERS NATURE CREATIONS DEPEND ON EACH OTHERS FOR SURVIVAL
THE TRUTH OF THE DICTUM – THE SUM TOTAL STAYS THE SAME
Our Creator has created His creations without any bias. All of us are bestowed with the similar bounties of Nature – air, water, sun, without the existence of ours would be impossible. However, highs he or she may be cannot survive without these gifts of God. Here power and pelf, status or big or small take in the same air, water and energy of sun. Nobody can survive himself/herself even for smallest period of time without these bounties.
FOOD FUNCTIONS SIMILAR
We all take in the same food which gives us energy to sustain – difference being the quality and quantity but with the same outcome. The food changes into energy which helps us to perform various functions of our body. The rich person can purchase and eat all that he want but his internal system may not help digest the food he eats, which proves that changing the natural arrangement will not pay in any way.
NO DIFFERNCE IN BODY FUNCTIONS
Normal human beings have the same number of bones 206 with all the internal organs such as brain, heart, liver, lungs, spleen, with veins, arteries etc. with similar functions of the body as a unit. We all have the same flesh and blood (of course with different blood group), colour of skin may be different but its function remains the same protection of the internal organs of the body.If one part of the body malfunctions, the functioning of the body suffers as a whole. Proving the sum total remains the same.
ALL THE CREATIONS MEET THE SAME FINAL FATE – DEATH
We all know what happens after we die – natural deaths or unnatural ones. The fate of all the creations is same. Our dead bodies are either cremated or buried or electrocuted but all have to mix in the dust. The all mighty or lowly meet the same fate. If we obey and live as per the natural laws, then, Nature too is kind to us. Alternatively, if we disturb the balance of nature then it punishes us in the form of earthquakes, tsunamis, blizzards etc. You overdo anything the nature knows how to balance itself. The sum total remains the same. We have to control our thoughts and deeds so that we do not produce imbalance in any way. Artificial changes or arrangements for our personal gains will not give us any gains ultimately.
FOLLOWING A SPIRITUAL ORIENTED LIFE GIVES US MENTAL SATIETY
The person who leads a spiritual oriented existence will have a total balance in mind. He has a balanced mindset with balanced approach to failures and successes. Nothing disturbs such a person, His equanimity remains same. This goes to show that a person with spiritual conscious mindset always remains on an even keel in wheel and woes of life.
OUR HUNGER AND DIGESTIVE SYSTEM
People with resources can buy any food item to eat but it all depends on his hunger and digestive system. Now coming to our sleep, although a rich man can buy comfortable homes, comfortable beds etc. yet, due to one reason or other may not get sleep due to his internal body system problems or insomnia. On the other hand the person who has done hard work, will get a sound sleep even on hard bed or on uneven ground. Similar is the case with hunger. A hungry man can digest anything which is given to him. The total result is the same.
RESOURCES WILL HAVE NO RELEVANCE IN CASE OF LIFE AND LIVING
A person with vast resources may not have satiety with what he possesses. He wants still more without realizing that when he came to this world, he had not brought anything and would not be taking anything while he leaves this world. Penniless we came and penniless we shall depart should never be forgotten. Sum total remains the same. If he loses something, he becomes all the more concerned and loses his sleep including stress related diseases resulting in loss of health and wellness. Subsequent medication can restore his health and wellness. The total remains the same.
PROBLEMS BRINGS ABOUT COURAGE TO SOLVE OUR PROBLEM
It has been seen that problem brings with it courage to experience the problems and these experiences give him courage to tap his internal potentialities. Thus failures or successes are part of the same coin for a man with balanced mentality. The sum total of remains the same.
We must have experienced that failure should be taken as a stepping stone for success in our life. There is always a second chance and the third one if second one does not succeed. If we introspect all the perspectives, we reach to the conclusion that despite the changes in our lives, the sum total; failures or successes, remains the same with our self-effort.
NATURE AND ITS FUNCTIONS REMAINS THE SAME
Nature provides us a big lesson. When we pollute the air, the trees come to our rescue and help convert CO2 into Oxygen and it continues. This is also the case with other perspectives in our lives which proves the dictum that there is evolution in many fascist in our dynamic world, which goes to prove that changes do occur but the final outcomes remains the same. We can reclaim the lost ground if we try but this effort should be within the parameters set in by the natural adjustment and not based on changes which are arbitrary and out of proportion with our natural settings since the sum totality of everything remains the same, we want it or not is not in our hands.
