Ability - an essential subject

Through observation, one sees that different living entities have various abilities due to natural talents and gifts­­­­, as well as how one's social status and physical and emotional make-up supports or defeats the ability to be happy. One may also wonder why someone is more able to achieve success than another when each has equal opportunity and resources. The secret to understanding this mystery of seemingly arbitrary distribution of ability and wealth starts with recognizing that Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the greatest of all living beings, possesses all abilities unlimitedly. Whether obtained from pious activities from past lives or from the present, one's ability to create and do anything is based on the sanction of the Lord. He is the ability in man. This ability is awarded according to one's willingness to render service to the Lord, and the perfection of life is to simply serve Krishna to the best of one's ability.
