What are We, the Lazy Servant? or.....



(49)


 “So try to create positive energy.”

“How?”

Each thought, each word and ultimately, every action counts in the ongoing journey of our life.” all nodded. Rafael continued.

“When you think good, when you do good, you would automatically produce positive energy. But that is not very easy. You should be good within, only then you can do good, or else you’d not be able to do any good.” All nodded

"Have you heard in the Bible, where Jesus says about being good?"

“ A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.” All nodded.

“Exactly Mathew, It’s the very same.” All nodded.

“ But Rafael, why is it necessary to create positive energy, by doing good? Can’t we gain positive energy without doing anything, good or bad?” All smiled.

“Good question Mathew. When you love someone what will you do?”

“Oh!!! I don’t think I could answer that Rafael, because I think I’d do anything.” All nodded.

“Exactly Mathew, even I would do the same, here we do not have any obligation to do anything to anybody. We do because we love the other person, care for the other person because they are part of our being, that knowledge would come only when our souls are opened, because love comes from the very being of Man – soul. Even though if you make a choice not to do, we cannot stay inert because, we are one in God, which means all the drops of God’s soul (every human being is a drop of God’s soul)  unites in the ocean of God soul. And this unity cannot be achieved if we do not do anything and do you know what will happen to the people who do not care to do anything?” All nodded in the negative.

“You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents. For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

“The parable of the lazy servant?”

“Yes the parable of the lazy servant. So just look how drastic a measure you’d be getting for not extending your goodness to others?” All nodded.

“So what do you think? Is it wise to stay inactive?”

“I don’t think so. But still there is one thing, I don’t understand, why such drastic measures, Rafael? We are not doing anything  bad.” All nodded

“Good question Mathew. We’ll continue this tomorrow.” All nodded




...to be contd....(50)....

Until then... Take care.....Bye
