I think srz just answered part of your question on Board One, "Where is Heaven." Miracles are not 'over-riding' laws, they are the effect of someone knowing how to operate laws of the higher realms. And I think things do get better by loving God. "Everything in the future will improve if you are making a spiritual effort now." Loving God is perhaps the highest spiritual practice.
You are right Miracles are also lawful operation of hidden laws known to seers. Guru says so in AY. Yet again, hidden laws unknown to mortals are also laws. Not unlawful stuff.
When we love God - we might get tuned-in to get some right direction i.e. harmony with our nature. That is the working of law of attunement with harmony i.e. God. Instead of working in wrong directions, going in the right direction with work, health, finances will have better outcomes. The same engine with the same power on the right track will go toward the right destination.
So directionally things may get better. However the "work" of moving in that direction is still with us. God won't magically do the work for us. Heaven's won't open up and fix our bad habits of eating, non-exercise, financial imprudence, etc. Love of God may bring in love for self-control which will lead to right eating, living etc. But the sustained effort of self-control, everyone knows, is not for the faint hearted. Tremendous application of will and effort and persistence is required. Nothing falls down from heavens or grows on Trees. God doesn't magically throw fruits of Good health, Intelligence, Right Eating habits, and so forth if we do not make any effort. That would be very partial.
Its okay for someone not to seek God but live by the laws of God. That is honoring God too without the rituals of prayer and external show of devotion. Why would God be partial to one child?
When I read stories of Kriyabans in trouble. It makes me realize --- nothing ever will happen of itself. If a Kriyaban can get in a shit-hole After burning karma with 40, 50, 100, 500 thousand Kriyas -- then everyone better watch out. The heaven's didn't open up and solve their troubles. Thats a massive massive Lesson.
Are we ready to learn the Lesson? People may dislike my saying so and consider me an unbeliever. Doesn't bother me. Prove to me today that each and every sincere Kriyaban will live and die in full human dignity (not in shit hole) - if they do nothing else but serve at SRF centers, at all convocations, sing all the Kirtans and go to all meditations plus read all SRF books.
It ain't gonna happen.
Mother Teresa singularly raised the point that humans have a basic right to die in dignity -- if not live so. Even the abandoned have a right to die cleanly and cared for. Not like a worm or an animal left to die somewhere. How more precious is a human in whom a living God breathes. How much more dignified should be the death of a seeker of Self in All! My heart aches and breaks to see mistaken notions leading humans to a death alley of indignity and self destruction based on false beliefs and sheer irrationality based on mis-interpretation of scriptures.
