Does everything happen with the will of God?
Quite often we hear a popular phrase:
That Nothing can happen without the will of God.
However, it’s a wrong concept – the true quote is……
“Parmatma kay bina kuchh nahin ho saktaa”
“Nothing can happen without God”
Another popular phrase:
“Parmaatma ki ichha kay ek Bina pataa bhi nahin hil saktaa”
“Nothing – not even a leaf, can move without the will of God”
But the actual phrase is:
“Nothing – not even a leaf, can move without God”
I don’t know when and how the word “will of God” got added to these phrases.
“What is the difference?” One may ask.
There is a big difference.
If nothing can happen without the “will of God” then why do ‘sin and evil’ exist in the world?
However, when we say “nothing can move without God” – has a different meaning altogether.
Every gadget and appliance in our homes run on electricity.
Now, can we say that the bulb cannot shine without the ‘will of electricity”?
We don’t see electricity shining, heating or cooling, or even flowing – but none of the household appliances can work without it.
Electricity simply provides energy. Shining, heating, or cooling depends on the design and programming of the gadget, not on the will of electricity.
Similarly, God is ‘Nirankaar, ‘Nirgun’ (Formless and attribute-less) – the ‘Basic source of energy behind everything.
But Love or hatred, kindness or cruelty, generosity or selfishness, helping and saving or torturing and killing, etc, depends on the individuals, not on the so-called ‘will of God’.
