Attitudinal gains

The vast abundance of God's universe awaits us. We, the children of God, are entitled to all His property just as a prince has access to all that belongs to the king. It is not that God is partial towards His children by creating disparities amongst them. Even then, only a section of people are able to draw that abundance easily towards themselves. Why?

Some people feel wrongly that one should not ask anything from God. But man-God relationship is the closest relationship existing on this planet. It is nearer than our own breath, cocooned within ourselves. What matters is how and in what manner we ask Him for what we want.

A little, interesting story exemplifies this. A man wanted a car desperately; and so he asked God for it, but never got it. One day he died and went to Heaven, and God showed him around. He stopped at a junkyard where there were many beautiful cars and told him that these were all reject items.

The man was puzzled and asked that who could have possibly rejected these. God sorrowfully told him that it was no other but he himself. Whenever He wanted to give a Mercedes to him, he kept on asking for a mere Santro, thus his dream did not get fulfilled.

The lesson: One should think big. God has created this whole world so that everyone can enjoy to the fullest, by having the right attitude and faith in Him.

We can draw anything in the world to us like a magnet. That magnet is a feeling of worthiness and the great trust in our Creator that He will provide us whatever we require even before we have to ask for it, that too, at our doorstep.

To conclude, positivity, thoughts of abundance, faith, a feeling of service towards all and surrender to God, are the sure ways to achieve whatever one wants in life.
