What is the social implication of the aphorism; that; “Everything happens according to God’s wish”?


Let us understand that even though the ultimate cause for everything in universe; is God’s wish; the universe goes on through the chain of causes and effects; such as ultimate, penultimate and immediate.   


This aphorism is meant for reminding us to go to the root cause; rather than responding inappropriately; to merely the immediate and penultimate causes. Because; such inappropriate responses; perpetuate the personal and social evils; such as corruption and crimes; and terrorism and wars; respectively.

However; if we ignore the role of penultimate and immediate causes; then we tend to become inert and irresponsible; and absolve ourselves and others; from the involvement in corruption, crimes, terrorism and wars.

The social implication of the aphorism; “Everything happens according to God’s wish” is; to reach the root cause; become objective and selfless; and heal the root, penultimate and immediate causes of evils in personal and social life.
