Discussion  - 5 Brother agreed to all that intellect said, that he should not waste time with the changing and utilize the same to increase his devotion to God. He now seeks advice, how to interact with the worldly people in all matters. Intellect advices him that what ever he meets in life is destiny, which should be accepted as God's grace as 'prarabdh'. Sometimes you like what you receive and at other times you don't. These are interpretations of our mind.

Intellect reminds him, the Law of Karma. It is the combination of the Law of Destiny and the Law of self effort. In this life we have to enjoy or suffer the fruits of action done in the past. This is the Law of Destiny. How we meet these situations is The Law of self effort. We are the architects of our own future destiny as we have freedom to choose our present actions. Also we must act as action is the insignia of life. Proper actions build our capacity to meet our destiny. We cannot avoid that.

If you interpret the destined people you meet as friends and enemies then you are becoming your own enemy as this is due to ignorance of the role of God. You become angry, greedy or lustful which cause your downfall. On the other hand if you accept all this as God's will then you are increasing your devotion to God and you become your own friend and will soon get uplifted and save your self from ruin. You will discover your Self.
