The answer is emphatic NO.
It is we who discriminate against ourselves vis. a vis. Isvara. There is a very large number of people who believe and complain that they have been short-shrifted at the hands of divine forces and perpetually hold themselves aggrieved.
Divine benediction flows equally towards all, unhindered and non-discriminatively. If we raise egoic barriers between us and Divine Providence, non-discriminative flow of benediction is hindered. Obstacle is the egoic barrier created by us and NOT any such object of hindrance created by Him !
Principles of Karmayoga are constantly in operation, uninterruptedly. Whatever we sowed yesterday, we are poised to reap fruits thereof, today. Yesterday implies herein, may be any one of the past lives while today is the current one necessarily.
Lower the egoic barrier between us and the Divine Providence, higher and abundant is the flow of divine benediction. Then the egoic ones view them as the most favoured ones ! Quite interestingly, those so-called favoured ones too, with lower or no egoic barriers between them and Him, address themselves as the ‘favoured ones’ !! And rightly so.
There is a beautiful Sloka in Narada Bhakti-Sutra that is quite relevant in this context. It is being reproduced and elaborated as under.
Isvarasyapyabhimanadvesitvat Dainyapriyatvat Ca II 27 II
Also, Isvara having affinity for the humble and aversion towards proud ones II 27 II
Humility is the state of inner being devoid of egoism of any kind whatsoever. Ahamkara is the root of entire creation with the means of Prakrti and cosmic journey of Jivatma spanning innumerable lives through these creations. Ahamkara individualises Atma from Param Brahmatma like an island in middle of an ocean by subduing innate universality. Divine benediction and bliss consciously do not transcend the confinement imposed around Atma by Ahamkara. Thus, such a seeker of Absolute Bliss fails to pursue Bhakti of the highest order.
In absence of Ahamkara characterised by intense humility, Atma of the seeker of Bhakti is entirely emancipated of all confinements, completely at liberty to enjoy the supreme benediction and bliss ever flowing from Param Brahmatma towards all. It is not true that Isvara has affinity for some while aversion towards others.
Isvara is equally, evenly disposed towards all, absolutely bereft of affinity or aversion of any variety / order whatsoever. It is Bhakta alone who benignly discovers Isvara having affinity towards him owing to the utter humility after irrevocable dissolution of Ahamkara. It is the seeker of Bhakti alone who discovers Isvara having aversion towards him owing to his egoic disposition towards other creations.
With his consecrated inner being absolutely devoid of Ahamkara, Bhakta enjoys divine bliss infinitely and eternally like a ‘truly favoured one’ !!
