Everything That Is Happening Now Has Happened Before

Anybody who says that violence has increased today and the world we live in today is worse than ever, should simply look back in time and they will realize that this is not true. The battle between good and evil has always been going on and this has lead to violence. 

Violence is a part of nature - visit a jungle and you will experience it. When a lion eats a deer, there is violence. When a deer eats a plant and uproots trees, there is violence against the plants. Without violence there is no life, as life has to fight to survive. 

Right from the time of Lord Ram and Lord Krishna there has been violence. During the times of Prophet Mohammad there was violence. During the time of the very great and learned Jesus Christ there was violence. There has been no time without violence. The Universe itself is violent filled with big bangs and explosions. Our birth itself happened in the midst of pain and blood. Everything that has happened now has happened in the past and will happen in the future.

As human beings rather than criticizing and being afraid of the world today, we need to embrace it and ensure we do our best in whatever we are doing. If you feel there is evil happening, don't shy away from violence but embrace it. Embrace it and fight back - in every way you can. 

The terrorists and evil in the world needs to be fought. Simply staying silent and letting them continue their violent ways will not bring about happiness or peace. 

When terrorists attack the world, right from India to Europe to America, should the world get scared and be quiet or use and channelize this anger to strike back? Should the world be silenced and not speak back? 

Fear is what they thrive on - instead of being afraid full force needs to be used and strike back. Irrespective of there these terrorists are hiding - right from Pakistan to Syria to Afghanistan, maximum force should be used to eliminate and destroy evil. 

This is the perfect time for everyone to read the Geeta and they will realize that the world is today in similar state in which Arjuna was, afraid and hesitant to go in battle. Afraid to fight evil. His insecurities were taking hold of him - until he heard Lord Krishna and realized there is nothing to fear. 

The human body and form is not permanent, but the soul is. We have all been here in the past and will be here in the future. Once we realize this we will fight all our battles without fear. The battles within us are constantly going on, the fight between good and evil can't happen without violence. 

May you get the strength to fight your battles and once you let go of fear, victory shall be yours.

This is so relevant today, I wish our American politicians read this and were not afraid to attack these terrorists. There can be no peace without violence.
