God is immanent in the world. So treat the world as lovingly as you will treat your Master. Serve, whatever be the obstacle or the cynical ridicule you may attract. The torture that his father inflicted to turn his mind away from God helped to bring out the unflinching devotion of Prahlada. The wickedness of Ravana served to reveal the might of Rama’s bow. Traducers like Shishupala, Dantavakra, Ravana, and Kamsa are inevitable accessories of every incarnation. When you attempt to cultivate and share virtues, selfless love and fortitude, trouble and travail will naturally follow. You must welcome them, for without them the best in you cannot be drawn out. If gold was as plentiful as dust or diamonds as easily available as pebbles, no one would care for them. Remember, precious metals are won after enormous exertion and expense, that is why they are eagerly sought after forever!
