Let’s Make Our Life Meaningful

 

Ecclesiastes 2:10-11

I denied myself nothing my eyes desired;

I refused my heart no pleasure.

My heart took delight in all my labor,

and this was the reward for all my toil.

11Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done

and what I had toiled to achieve,

Everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind;

nothing was gained under the sun.

 Book of Ecclesiastes is a wonderful book written by King Solomon, one of my favorite character in Bible. Of course, my most favorite is King Cyrus as he was the man of religious tolerance. Even though he was not a Jew, he allowed Jews in exile to construct a temple for Jehova. That’s why I named my son Cyrus. I told my husband. I don’t want my children to be torch bearers of any particular religion. He cant  have a better name than this.   When I was carrying, my son, I was ofcourse not keeping well, but I wanted my son to be a wrestler. So I used to watch WWE often, that too late in the night and my husband used to call me a mad woman. I said. My son will go to WWE or I want him to be a soldier to serve his country.

 These days all are promoting their own religion. The true enlightenment comes when we understand God doesn’t need any religion to support him. God is beyond this universe, and he can’t be described within any ideology or statue. I can’t restrict my Lord like that. My God is above any demigods and that’s why I call his Parabrahma. Beyond this universe.

 Here, King Solomon, the richest King, by all ways. He had so much of wealth.

  2 Chronicles 9:13-29 gives a detailed description have seen how much wealth this man had.

  • King Solomon’s drinking cups were made of gold
  • all the utensils were of pure gold
  • He had a fleet of ocean-going ships
  • Every three years his fleet would return, bringing gold, silver, ivory, apes, and monkeys.
  • King Solomon also had four thousand stalls for his chariots
  • He had twelve thousand cavalry horses.
  • Every year King Solomon received over twenty-five tons of gold

 This is a small note from his wealth.

Now kindly read about his sexual confrontations with his wives and concubines.

 1 Kings 11:3

 He had seven hundred wives of royal birth and three hundred concubines

  I was wondering how many times he might have done sex in his lifetime.   Maybe he was running from one room to other room for quick appraisals. LOL. Sex is the need of physical body as far as I know. It is not the need or emergency of a spiritual body. Now a days so much of importance in looking hot and dashing for males as well as females. Even I compliment my male and female friends, if they are appealing, by saying “Oh gosh you look damn hot or sexy or whatever” People want to attract another human like them, but no one bothers to attract god. Which should be the first thing to look in our life. That attitude is less in my life as well. 

 Even girls also wearing 1 inch tight dresses to show up their top and bottom curves.    I donno what pleasure they get from that, I am never comfortable in tight clothes.  I would never wear a tight dress even . That doesn’t make me holy either, I have other sins in my balance sheet.

 Let’s read the scripture fully

 1 Kings 11:3

3 He had seven hundred wives of royal birth and three hundred concubines, and his wives led him astray

 Irony is that he was known for his wisdom.  Even then he could not control his lust. His lust ruined him. He lost his track during the end days of his life and his kingdom was divided and his sons were evil. 

 As we all know King Solomon was the son of Bathsheeba and King David. He was born out of wedlock. Bathsheeba was the wife of Uriah and he was a soldier in King David’s army. King David got seduced by Bathsheeba’s beauty and vital stats and he had extra marital with her. When King came to know that Bathsheba is carrying, he send Uriah to the front place in the battlefield to get killed. Poor man got killed.

You can read about that plot here

 2 Samuel 11

https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Samuel+11&version=NIV

 David was lazy and he forgot his duty to lead the army and fell into the depth of sin. Well, we all fall into sin when we are not enlightened by the sense of our responsibilities. Not a new thing.

King David had so many sons from different wives. There was a confusion that who will become the King after David. King David promised to Bathsheeba, that Solomon will become king. He ensured his  kingship was safe  by murdering his opponent brother Adonijah.

 God gave King Solomon greatest wisdom

 1 Kings 3

 1 Kings 3-4

 4 The king went to Gibeon to offer sacrifices, for that was the most important high place, and Solomon offered a thousand burnt offerings on that altar. 5 At Gibeon, the Lord appeared to Solomon during the night in a dream, and God said, “Ask for whatever you want me to give you.”

 1 Kings 3:6-9

  6 Solomon answered, “You have shown great kindness to your servant, my father David, because he was faithful to you and righteous and upright in heart. You have continued this great kindness to him and have given him a son to sit on his throne this very day.

7 “Now, Lord my God, you have made your servant king in place of my father David. But I am only a little child and do not know how to carry out my duties. 8 Your servant is here among the people you have chosen, a great people, too numerous to count or number. 9 So give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?”

 God gave him that great wisdom. God gives righteous things, when we ask. These days I am repeatedly asking wisdom from god. Again and again going to him day and night, just for the wisdom.

 One insight which I got from this is, we need so many things in our life for survival. Why don’t we ask wisdom to gain those things in life instead asking for those blessings?

 Suppose we have a tough time at work, why should we ask god to change that situation? Instead can’t we ask for more wisdom to handle that situation?

 See, this is the main info from Solomon’s life.

 He was born out of wedlock

  • He became King by his mother’s evil idea
  • He killed his brother to become a king
  • He was the richest man
  • He was the wisest man and many people came to listen to the word of wisdom.
  • He had so many wives and concubines

He enjoyed his life , he conquered his enemies. He ruled a country, but still he says

 Ecclesiastes 2:10-11

I denied myself nothing my eyes desired;

I refused my heart no pleasure.

My heart took delight in all my labor,

and this was the reward for all my toil.

11Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done

and what I had toiled to achieve,

Everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind;

Nothing was gained under the sun.

  Then what is meaningful?

 

Ecclesiastes 7:13-14

 13 Consider what God has done:

  Who can straighten

    what has he made crooked?

14 When times are good, be happy;

    but when times are bad, consider this:

God has made the one

    as well as the other.

Therefore, no one can discover

    Anything about their future.

 As an astrologer, I always seen so many ruined lives, but no astrologer can help anyone to change that, we can only strengthen the person, to be strong and fix his focus back to god , making his realize

14 When times are good, be happy;

    but when times are bad, consider this:

God has made the one

    as well as the other.

Therefore, no one can discover

    anything about their future.

  That’s why I always encourage people to fix eyes in the lord and do their Karma. Not looking at an astrologer who is just another human being paying back for their Karma. Theory of Karma is stronger than the theory of astrology.

 We live hardly for 80 years on this earth and we have to fly back to the source. According to me, death is the most beautiful event in a human’s life. The moment where we detach from the earthly bondage and being in one with the creator or Parabrahma. That’s when our journey become meaningful.
