Is the poverty fate or the curse as the consequences of the past life?
So far as my experience and observation, there are so many people who really work harder and have been striving for twice meal a day, they better know what is struggle yet they are suffering from poverty, everyone has dream to be wealthy person so do they hard work but very minimal percentage of them can fulfil their aim. Is it due to the fate or curse?
These are the inequalities of life which invoke in us the question about Karma consequences of the past life and the previous life/lives. Life is just not fair for some people. Let's take some popular examples - you take a look at the life of Justin Bieber, that kid has more than he deserves and needs. On the other hand take a look at the life of some great poets/writers of all time e.g Jean Arthur Rimbaud, Franz Kafka etc. These people ever got their worth during their lifetime. Similarly, I see many people suffering from poverty which they inherited! Why was that boy born in the slum and that one to Bill Gates? There is no logical explanation, and where logic fails...
I don't think it is fate or curse. People are in poverty because of different circumstances, some out of their control and some not. If someone is running a country that has a majority of their citizens in poverty, then the government of that country is primarily at fault for not providing the means to help their people get out of poverty. I also place some blame on the persons themselves for their poor personal and financial choices.
The issues of world-wide poverty are so complex involving political, economic, education and cultural issues that I don't think it's helpful or accurate to frame the question as either this or that. The notion that these conditions are caused by either "fate" or a "curse" lacks the fundamental appreciation of the many issues involved and is not, therefore, very useful.
The concept of fate and the concept of a curse are both dis-empowering. If these quaint ideas were really responsible for what happened to us and we have a hard life, then we are saying that none of this was or is in our power (or in the collective power of my family or community) to change and so we are victims and that's just the way it is.
I'm afraid I don't cotton much to the idea of embracing victim-hood. And while I understand that there are many things we come up against in life which make things very difficult, just accepting that these things are our "fate" or a "curse" is, I think, not only not useful, but also relieves us (in our own minds) of the responsibility to ACT as an advocate for our own lives and the lives of our families and communities.
I don't want to be rude, but you might consider bursting that bubble of yours. Look around the African continent and India. You really think we're in control? HAHAHAH Bless your soul! Some people don't even have the option to 'ACT'! Logic is futile.
I agree with you, D.M. Obviously this pretty young thing knows a thing or two about female empowerment, which is only applicable in westernized societies. Perhaps she should live in some third-world countries for a spell.
I do believe in karma. I believe that each of us has lessons to learn, and that life gives us the means to learn them. If we don't learn them, we're bound to repeat the lessons until we "get it."
Poverty is harsh, but there are always shining gems amongst the roughness. There are always people who push the difficulties aside, decide to take charge and change their circumstances, and who often work to change the circumstances of others that were in their situation.
I've experienced extreme poverty, and there are good things that can come out of it, just like there are bad things that can come from extreme wealth.
We cannot comment poverty as a fate or curse, because some humanitarian aspect is related to it. Social aspects should be a prime policy of a good government to uplift the life of the poor people as well as eradicating poverty from society.
