Many would tend to disbelieve it if I say that we are under watch and ward of the supreme divine power. There is a famous story of an Indian saint Kanakadasa of Karnataka that bears testimony to the omnipresence of divinity.
Kanakadasa, who belonged to the backward caste, was a devotee of Lord Krishna. He was a disciple of Vyasaraya who loved Kanakadasa more than any of his other disciples for his maturity and bhakti. This created jealousy amongst other high caste Brahmin disciples against Kanakadasa. The Guru realized sensed it and wanted to end this bitterness between his disciples once for all by proving a point: why he loves Kanakadasa so much. One day he called all his disciples and giving them each a banana said “You are to go to a place where no one would see you and eat your bananas.” All the disciples left the place and when they came back the next day, the Guru asked them how they managed to eat. One student said, “I covered myself in a blanket and ate it”. Other said, “When it was dark in the night, I switched off the light and ate it.” Another said, “I hid in a bush and ate it.” Every one explained how smart they were, except Kanakadasa who said, “Guruji, I could not eat the banana. I could not find a place where God was not present.”
Robert Delaunay once said, “But what is of great importance to me is observation of the movement of colors.”
The divine power is continuously present throughout all of creation. Even between the empty spaces of atoms this power is said to be present. Omnipresence is God’s characteristic of being present to all ranges of both time and space. No molecule or atomic particle is so small that God is not fully present to it, and no galaxy so vast that God does not circumscribe it.
I come across people with double standards. When we were in schools it could have happened then like a teacher allowing a boy to go to the front of the line since he is the class bully, but would yell at a girl who tried the same thing. In all these instances double standards are difficult to detect as they happened in a natural fashion. But as we grow they tend to stay hidden from society or friends or family members. One who practices double standards is careful not to be exposed to the world.
What the double standard sets up to do is in having different principles for different people in the same situation. Why is this so? Sometimes it’s as if this viewpoint comes naturally, but it had to be derived from somewhere, isn’t it?
Why transparency in life is not followed ….
Remember, the golden rule of life: All actions are determined and watched by divine scanner. All your actions are scanned very minutely.
Before committing any actions, ask yourself a simple question … if God is watching me, should I do this? Follow the voice of your conscience without wasting a single moment.
This litmus test could help you in reorganizing your values and lifestyle. Leaders are transparent. They follow the inner voice and ask one question.
“If I am supervised by GOD right now, should I do it? Once the answer is yes, a true leader does it unhesitatingly.
