Observed the religious art related to the Mahabharata? It shows Arjuna standing by Lord Krishna’s feet, while seeking his advice prior to the war. Something that reflects Arjuna’s humility and surrender to Krishna’s advice and will, right from the very outset. And we all know how Lord Krishna created ways in which he could be on the side of the Pandavas. He’d left the choice of his own participation in the war to Duryodhan. Who unlike Arjuna, told Lord Krishna what he wanted! And he also got what he wanted but he lost the lord to Krishna’s infinite army because he chose the latter. Which became the reason for his eventual loss.
So, the next time you are seeking something from the divine force, choose to be like Arjuna. Submit to the divine will with surrender and humility. Show the willingness to accept what comes your way. Allow life to decide what’s right for you and not impose what you think is right.
