Ishvara

Hi everyone!

I’m sitting here enjoying a muffin, and it’s bringing me such great joy. It’s a good muffin, but that’s not the reason it’s bringing me joy. I made the muffin, but Ishvara (an umbrella name for God since He has a lot of names) gave me the abilities to make this muffin.

Everything we do is so complex once we begin thinking about it. If we don’t think about it, life is so simple. I feel like this may be an ‘aha’ moment, and I wanted to record it. I don’t know whether Ishvara had a hand in personally making me or not, but it doesn’t really matter. His hand made the universe, whether it was Him actually forming it or just sending out the atom that bumped into another atom, and eventually I came out on the other end. Everything I do is directly or indirectly influenced by Him.

But grace is that concept where we don’t actually have to realize how things happen. We can just take them as is with no prerequisites. The ultimate grace would be to live like an animal with no worries or cares. Animals don’t ponder philosophical questions; they just live.
