If you are not sincere and not working sincerely to maintain responsibilities with devotion to God, God will not help you; you will get result of your action only. Your sincere work with submission to God will follow each other and coincide sooner or later at some certain stage.
We are souls and not bodies. Soul, permanent one and body as temporary. We can live in the body only but cannot attach to it being temporary and vanishing. We should protect our bodies to the best of our duties to make it maintainable till life or till it exists but cannot attach to it for permanence, as a matter of fact, to be experienced and understood for God has made it decaying.
Similarly, we should eat every eatable but cannot attach to it being a temporary pleasure and vanishing; we should wear clothes but cannot attach to it being temporary and vanishing; we should use every good thing but cannot attach to it being temporary and vanishing; we should do every work sincerely but cannot attach to its results being temporary and vanishing. Therefore, we should live in this world without any attachment since all things have been made temporary and vanishing. If we attach, we will be far from God with Whom we have to be one.
Live this temporary life in a right, good, wise and thoughtful manner and spirit otherwise you will invite troubles after troubles in your life which can frustrate you and all others and make situation helpless and life will be a burden knocking-on disastrous result culminating in total tragedy. Be wise and save yourselves.
It is not good to try a blatant effort to teach your parent as they are watching how true and sincere you are, moreover, they have long and bitter experiences of life, no matter what were their abilities and situations: may be poor or rich, favourable or not favourable whatsoever, they have cared and nurtured you from before and after birth and made you exist in life, however, you can sensibly and politely suggest and advice parent for their consideration and understanding, having regard for their sentiments and thinking with a sense of obeying them who will agree with you if you are right and sincere. Whatever you do for them, will be a matter of your duties and responsibilities for them and not of your favour, mercy or kindness and imposing an obligation on them. If you do not know, the matter is something else which cannot be recognized either by parent or by the court of God. Parent in the court of God, are sincere and not fearful to accept if anything went wrong. Hari Om.
Everyone requires to be conscious and careful at best to protect life and achieve final end to transform oneself into reality, the union with God to attain peace and salvation. You people always agree to the thoughts only but do not cultivate in life. Bookish knowledge has little value which is minimal for living life and what you need most is your right, good, wise, sincere and thoughtful work which you do not apply successfully, is a matter lacking experience of fact and reality, has a great concern and if negated, will end in tragedy. God will be helpless and you will be looking blank with sadness. Is it good and satisfying ? No. Reform yourself. Go ahead revamped with energy of rightness, goodness, wiseness, sincerity and thoughtfulness to turn over a new leaf and to get real success in life.
