One day Thimma set out in his car. Upon reaching his destination, he parked the car by the side of the road and proceeded to finish some work. Upon finishing his work, when he was returning to his car, it began to rain heavily and he had to take shelter under a tree. Thimma had kept both his umbrella and his rain coat in the car and the car was locked. He could not get his umbrella or his rain coat without unlocking his car first, but he could not go to the car because of the heavy downpour.
Our life is also like this. God has given us everything. We have the capacity to manage any situation in life. But we do not know this. Since we do not look at our inner strength, we do not realise our own capacity. Unless we unlock our soul, we cannot gain this Jnana or knowledge.
