If everything happens according to His will, then why does He let us do stupid things? Is our mind controlled by Him? If not, then what exactly is it that he controls? I don't get it
God asks us to give over our will onto Gods will. God has given us free will, yet asks us to relenquish this, freely by our own choice.
Those who do, and those who God decides to take, then God works through them. Otherwise what we do in this world we do so freely in accordance with our will.
just found this quote in another thread that i really liked. i hope lee ji doesn't mind me using it here:
ਰਾਤੀ ਰਤੁ ੀ ਿਥਤੀ ਵਾਰ ॥
raatee rutee thitee vaar.
Nights, days, weeks and seasons;
ਪਵਣ ਪਾਣੀ ਅਗਨੀ ਪਾਤਾਲ ॥
pavan paanee agnee paataal.
wind, water, fire and the nether regions
ਿਤਸੁ ਿਵਿਚ ਧਰਤੀ ਥਾਿਪ ਰਖੀ ਧਰਮ ਸਾਲ ॥
tis vich Dhartee thaap rakhee Dharam saal.
-in the midst of these, He established the earth as a home for Dharma.
