Does God decide the time to change a soul's samskaras?

[Smt. Priyanka asked: Does God decide when it is time to change a soul's samskaras? Swami, You had mentioned that only true spiritual knowledge can change a person's samskaras. Once a soul is transformed, will the old accumulated samskara vanish completely and never get carried forward to any future births?]

Swami replied:- All these are simply dreams without the practical action in the spiritual effort. The soul must sincerely try to assimilate the true spiritual knowledge given by the Sadguru continuously to reach the goal. Hamlet (a role in the drama of Shakespeare) always thinks and thinks and thinks and never does any practical action! Too much ladder of analysis of the future is not good for a practical soul. If you go on thinking about your actions to be done after becoming the king, first of all, you never become the king because all your lifetime is spent in the plan of future actions of a hypothetical king. Once the worldly Samkaaraas are destroyed and your heart is filled with divine samskaaraas, God will take care of you from all sides and why should you bother about such future?
