….Certainly. Help yourself and that is itself according to God‘s Will. Every action is prompted by Him only. As for prayer for the sake of others, it looks so unselfish on the surface of it. But analyse the feeling and you will detect selfishness there also. You desire others’ happiness so that you may be happy. Or you want the credit for having interceded on others’ behalf. God does not require an intermediary. Mind your business and all will be well.

— Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharishi, from the classic, ‘Talks’, p 547

    lol. What to say?
    See my other comment.
    i don’t agree. one needs to distinguish between when love is real or not….
    and there’s real love, of course.
    but that too asks the same discernment and understanding…
    but he’s wiser then me!!!!
    Maybe i am going to try for some weeks to be igoistic, to do an experiment

    And i have a question: this big question:
    To my understanding, there’s God and there are humans who are free and that is why there’s evil. Humans are egoistic and hence they create a hell…
    Now i don’t understand when they say: All is well, all is God’s will.
    It is not because that is against the very God’s wish that we are free to our will – which is to choose evil and to choose good. even though this is sometimes not clear and not back and white….
    You think it is God that willed that Vietnam was sprayed with orange element?
    You think it is God that wishes a caste system, or slaves or that innocent people are tortured?
    No, it isn’t. Of course there are laws of consequences that take us to such states on earth….
    God’s will is that we enjoy Godliness his presence, or the Union with….. ME……
    heheheh, a new thought i had!

    That God’s aim is to unite itself with me because that is good fun.

    if they say all is God’s will, they don’t understand.
    yes and no. yes because it is his choice that we are free.
    no because of course he loads all the horrible things we do.
    simple. no?
