the inevitablity of annihilation

... I've been regularily reading the Srimad Bhagavatam, and
one passage really haunts me.

Lord Vishnu, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is
the enjoyer of all sacrifices, is the time factor and the
master of all masters. He enters everyone's heart, He is
the support of everyone, and He causes every being to be
annihilated by another.

... and Srila Prabupada goes on to explain further:

Lord Vishnu, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is
clearly described in this passage. He is the supreme
enjoyer, and all others are working as His servants.
As stated in the Caitanya-caritamrta, all others are
His servants. Lord Brahma, Lord Siva and other demigods
are all servants. The same Vishnu enters everyone's
heart as Paramatma, and He causes the annihilation
of every being through another being.

... I had to think about it awhile, but it makes sense to me
He causes the annihilation of every being through another being

... that is kind of scary, God has my annihilation already
setup, done thru another being, so the karma is maintained
within the earth's web-of-life

... now annihilation dosn't mean murder at the hands of
another human, because the term used is being,
and not specifically a human being

... and annihilation just means end of existence in
your current body, however it occurs

... Vishnu dosn't want any comtamination from the karma
of earth, everything is nicely contained in the vortex
of the material world, and the heavens stay clean

... I see that it is a good thing, because when I get
to heaven, I don't want to deal with anymore earth karma

... I guess ultimately it's your own karma which kills
you. One's karma gets manifested in the world which we
create in the mind

... maybe a butterfly is destined to kill me, but
if it is so, then it is the will of Vishnu

... from one of the Hare Krishna websites, I read this:

The man whispered, ''God, speak to me''
and a meadowlark sang.
But the man did not hear.
So the man yelled, ''God speak to me''
and the thunder rolled across the sky.
But the man did not hear.
The man looked around and said,
''God, let me see you'' and a star shone brightly.

But, the man did not notice. So, the man cried
out in despair, ''Touch me God, and let me know
you are here!"

God reached down and touched the man....but,

the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.
