Are you aligned with your destiny?
N THE PRIMORDIAL TIME, THE SOULS
of mankind were assembled before God; this
was when their fates were decided.
In The Religion of God (Divine Love), His Divine
Eminence Gohar Shahi paints a clear picture of
the scene that occurred there.
‘Then, God created a modelled world and
its luxuries in order to test and examine the
souls. And God said, “Should anyone seek it,
they may obtain it.” Too many souls turned
their back on God and leapt towards the
modelled luxuries of the world. Therefore,
they were declared hell-bound in the book of
their fate. Then, God depicted the scene of the
paradise, which was better than the latter
and concerned itself with the servitude and
obedience. Many souls leapt towards it, and
the paradise was written in their fate. Too
many souls were indecisive, hence, they were
placed in between the Lord and the Devil.
They were entangled between the two when
they came in this world. Whoever influenced
them first, they became theirs. Many souls
fixed their eyes on the Divine Splendour. They
desired none of the world or paradise. God
loved them, and they loved God. Such
souls for the sake of God, shunned
the world, became recluse, and
lived in jungles.’
Religions are for those who wished
for luxuries of the paradise in
the Primordial Time. Those who
wished for the luxuries of the
world do not need a religion. Since
the religions were not meant for
them, the world-loving souls -
who by nature, seek temporal
comfort and wealth - polluted the
religions when they adopted them.
Sometimes when travelling on the highway,
you miss an important exit but you have to
continue driving on because you cannot stop on
When you know that you are driving in the
wrong direction, you develop uneasiness.
That is what happens with people who have
a purpose in their life but they are not moving
towards their goal. In this scenario, they become
depressed and uneasy. You must know what
your destiny is. When you go in the opposite
direction to what your goal is, you are not happy
with yourself. To be content in life, you need to
be happy with yourself. Therefore, the key to
achieving happiness in life is to determine where
your happiness lies.
HOW TO TEST YOUR DESTINY
His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi often says,

Heart and test your destiny. If invocation of
