When You Know Who The Proprietor Is, There Is No Conflict.
People are talking about a Third World War, and all I can think is, "Again with this war nonsense?" The second World War just ﬁnished and there was a lot of agony: millions of people were killed. It seems like there's enough evil already, but no, It can't stop.
People are talking about a Third World War, and all I can think is, "Again with this war nonsense?" The second World War just ﬁnished and there was a lot of agony: millions of people were killed. It seems like there's enough evil already, but no, It can't stop. Because war is going on always. There is always some kind of war going on somewhere, not only on this Earth planet but on all planets. The nature of this material creation is that we must ﬁght in order to survive. One living entity is eaten by another living entity. We ﬁght because we want to artiﬁcially occupy the land which does not even belong to us. Everything is possessed by Krishna, The Supreme Personality of Godhead. We just came across some property and claimed that "this is mine." Does just saying It mean I am the proprietor? Of course not. If you ﬁnd some wallet on the street, you must understand that you have found it because somebody had already possessed it before. So all the creations and universes belong to Krishna, including the spiritual world.
A person in full consciousness of Me, knowing Me to be the ultimate beneficiary of all sacrifices and austerities, the Supreme Lord of all planets and demigods, and the benefactor and well-wisher of all living entities, attains peace from the pangs of material miseries. [BG 5.29]
So, you might just so called ﬁnd something, "oh, this is a nice car, let me take it." But why don't you ask the question, "who is the possessor of that thing?" Let's say you find him out, "Mr. John." Okay, now who possesses the materials for constructing that car? Who put them Into nature? Mr. John? Mr. Richard? No, It's Krishna. That is stated In the Bhagavad Gita. The proprietary is written right there. Just like you have on papers written, that this car belongs to you, in the same way, Krishna has said,
"Earth, water, fire, air, ether, mind, intelligence and false ego—all together these eight constitute My separated material energies." [BG 7.4]
And because of this false proprietary claim, there is war and conflict. "This is mine, this belongs to the Americans, this to the Indians and this to Africans etc. We ﬁght like this because we want to exploit each other for resources and wealth. Krishna gives you a quota that you possess, and it that is confirmed in the Isopanishad,
"Everything animate or inanimate that is within the universe is controlled and owned by the Lord. One should therefore accept only those things necessary for himself, which are set aside as his quota, and one should not accept other things, knowing well to whom they belong." [ISO 1]
Considering Krishna is the proprietor of everything in this material world and the spiritual world, everything should used for His pleasure, isn't it? You have borrowed it and a borrowed thing should be returned back to the original proprietor. We must understand that all we have are from and for Krishna and we should used them in order to please Him, in the way He wants. Otherwise any kind of political strategies or organizations etc. won't help you to stop war. People serve their senses which can be never satisﬁed. The senses are masters you will never satisfy, and they will torture you, until the urge will increase and ultimately you could come to the point where you would even kill somebody just to satisfy those rascal senses. But Krishna is satisﬁed even if you offer Him a little water, some fruit, a leave or a ﬂower with love. And because you satisfy the real master, Krishna, you will naturally be pleased, "oh, my master is satisﬁed." A servant is satisﬁed when his master is satisﬁed. In this way, we avoid unnecessary war due to constant and nonsense lusty desires. It's better to ﬁght for pleasing Krishna the most and everybody can thus live a blissful spiritual live without any fear.
