Why Blame God?

Some folks came to see me a few days ago and joined in a satsang with their own questions.
I was answering a few queries when they said that they are thankful to God for getting their dear daughters married off. God has been kind to all of them and so on.
I told them that God was in no way responsible for their daughters marriages or for their upkeep.
They were flabbergasted and got a bit provoked by what I said.
So here goes the explanation for what I said to them. You are free to disagree or just log off but that still does not change a thing.
The Vedas are the final word of God as we all know. It is the framework on which this entire creation and all that you do not understand has been cast on. Sounds difficult to follow?
It is like the Indian Penal Code written and enacted in 1860 or so. That is the framework on which anything and everything to do with law is based on. Likewise the Indian Constitution on which all the laws governing this great nation is based on. We follow the IPC or the Constitution very reverentially and abide by it. All punishments or retributions are based on that alone. So also the great rule book or law book or creative black book of the great Lord was written called the Vedas. They prescribe how the human will be, how animals are, or the basis of all prototypes or the original masterpieces.
We follow all rules, laws, enactments, works, jobs, etc..including the so called punishments, crimes, etc. That is the master rule book or the laws of Karma.
Just as the great writer does not go back to the said laws once again but the newer generation amends and changes as per the days requirements, so also the great Karmic laws are only amended but the basic framework is never touched. Got that?
So we all follow the guidelines and every act of ours are governed by the law of Karma.
What you sow is what you reap is the main theme. You decided to get married to someone and wished later that you never set your eyes on that creep when you got the divorce. He bashed you up or cheated on you. Now when you thought you got rid of him, it turns out that the law of Karma does not work that way. He has to get back that bashing or the abuse he showered on you so you have to come back to life again and get married to him again so that you can return the favor back to him in kind again. Now that seems ghastly to you, so you now decide what it is that you wish to associate yourself with.
You truly decide your own future actions by creating karmas all the time.
The book of karma is written by us and then the associated actions have to be fulfilled too, if not in this life then in some other.
Maybe you gave a million dollars in charity to someone, so isn't it logical to think that you too will have to get it back sometime someday. This is how you make your own destiny. You write with your own hand what you will get back in your future lives.
So stop blaming God for all your troubles or calamities that you face.
You wrote your own book of future lives yourself.
All the debits have to be cleared by the credits in your book of accounts.
God just wrote the rule book and the framework but he never interferes with the working at all.
Just the way someone wrote the binary code and now we just base our future computing on that alone.
Someday I wonder if you ever think what your own fate will be because you gave a poor man a few Rupees. Does it mean that you have sanctioned yourself that charity back in some future life when you will be as poor as him right now?
