This reshuffled arrangement of happiness and misery resembles the sweet and hot dishes in the meals and also resembles to a cinema containing both scenes of happiness and tragedy in alternating manner. Such system of alternating arrangement gives continuous entertainment not only to God but also to the individual soul. Thus, the basic intention of the God is only to entertain Himself and also all the individual souls. Anything, either happiness or misery bores, if it is continuous. Boring itself is misery.
If you have compelled God to give happiness continuously though your prayers and worship, God will drag the happiness from the future cycle as a premature fixed deposit with reduced interest and hands it over to you. He will not give happiness to you if there is no balance of good deeds. As the impartial judge, He will not give happiness to you if there is no good deed in your list. Therefore, asking God for continuous happiness is the most foolish solution because it bores giving misery to you at the expense of good deeds. You are purchasing the misery with your hard earned cash! Moreover, when all the good deeds are exhausted, you will have the continuous misery only in all your future births. Therefore, praying God to solve a problem is the most foolish path of ignorance.
Such happiness attained is temporary. Hence, the permanent solution is only to learn to enjoy both good and bad results and attain continuous happiness without boring and this is the real bliss. Bliss is the state of God, who is entertained with this world having alternating scenes of happiness and misery. You have already learnt to be happy by enjoying the happiness. Now through the spiritual knowledge and continuous practice, you learn to enjoy the misery also in equal way. Now, your enjoyment becomes continuous without boring due to absence of single phase (happiness or misery) and you have attained the state of God which is possible though effort. Now you can say that you are God because the maximum possible state of God is achieved (Matbhavamagatah..Gita). Creation, Rule and Destruction of this world are impossible for any individual soul though any effort and hence these three capabilities are irrelevant to the spiritual effort. If you attain the aim, which is possible for attainment, it is certainly the full success and you can claim that you are God in the total sense of the possible achievement.
