Failure is God's way of message

It is human nature to forget God when we are happy and contented and remember Him only when we are in acute difficulty. In these latter times, we do not hesitate to blame Him for our difficulties. It is important to correct this misperception.

  In reality, we should be grateful to God for giving us something called failure.
 Failure is God’s way of giving us a message that we are doing something wrong and that we need to correct it. In India we suffer from having a pejorative or negative perception of failure rather than seeing it for what it really is: a powerful means of self-correction.

  As President Kalam once said: “When we tackle obstacles, we find hidden reserves of courage and resilience we did not know we had. And it is only when we are faced with failure do we realise that these resources were always there within us. We only need to find them and move on with our lives.”

 Who or what is God? God is a name  we give to the Supreme Being who creates, preserves and destroys the universe. It therefore represents Divine Energy.
 He has no gender, no name, no form and no attribute. He is actually formless. So declare our scriptures.

For example, the Upanishads observe: “To many it is not given to know the Self, Many, though they hear of it, do not understand it. Wonderful is he who speaks of it.
Intelligent is he who knows of it. Blessed is he who taught by a good teacher is able to understand it.”

“The truth of the Self cannot be fully understood when taught by an ignorant man for opinions regarding it, not founded in knowledge, vary from one another. Subtler than the subtlest is this Self and beyond all logic. Taught by a teacher who knows the Self and Brahman as one, a man leaves vain theory behind and attains the truth.”

God takes the form of a Guru or a self-realised master to make man understand that he is no different from Him. He does not belong to any religion.He is self-effulgent and suffers no limitation. Although he illuminates the universe He is not affected by it. Instead He remains its sole support. He is effulgence.
