Sometimes, in our day to day life, we meet people who seem to be doing everything right but still suffer in every aspect of their life. On the other hand, we also meet people who have never ever done a single righteous thing in their entire life and they continue to enjoy their life & all the blessings are showered upon them. And when we ask our elders the reason for it, they just say “it’s their past life karma that’s effecting their life”
Now the late 20th century & 21st century youth doesn’t really understand this phenomenon and I myself was troubled by this until my deep thinking process led me to the answer. And I call it ”The Black Box Theory”. As we all know that whenever there is a mid-air crisis on a plane or a crash, the engineer access the “Black Box”, also known as FDR/ADR(Flight/Accident Data Recorder). Now this black box is something that stores each n every data from the moment a plane takes off and in case of a crash/trouble helps the experts find the reason for the same. Also, a black box can withstand a high velocity crash i.e it survives even when the plane doesn’t.
In the same way, our soul is the black box attached to our physical body and it stores each n every action of ours from the day we are born till the day we die. It survives even after we leave the physical world upon death and helps the Amighty decide our next course of action i.e either we should be allowed into heaven, sent downtown for punishment or pushed back to Earth for another trial run.
Unlike a hard drive, one cannot just format his/her entire life and begin afresh but you can always overwrite the existing data present in the black box aka Soul with Good & Selfless deeds. And hence, one day redeem our self of countless trials on earth and be one with the Almighty God. Think about it!
