In the name of God…

Posted: March 6, 2010 in Life so far!

Man to God : God, why did you make woman so beautiful?

God to Man: “So you would love her.”

“But God”, Man says, “why did you make her so dumb?”

God replies: “So she would love you.” :)

It’s always nice to read conversations people have with their gods, goes to prove – somewhere deep down in everyone’s heart .. exist a GOD that one has blindfold faith in.

You may term it whatever you want – the higher power, the man upstairs or the divine imminence, the point still remains around the fact that you absolutely realize you would be nothing without him (read: her)

I was a non believer in god, until one day i realized who am i making a fool of. Nobody cares if my god really exist or not, it is me who does and thats all that matters to me.

The other day in office, a colleague  got me into thinking,left  a question for me to figure the answer for.

Ques If you really think God is and everyone believes as much as you do, where do you think the god was when innocent lives were lost in a recent German bakery blast in Pune ? Do you think the people who lost their loved ones believe in their god anymore ?

For me, the question does not end there, and it never will..

Come to think of it..  the best I could do to answer was to think of my god and ask him quick , ” God, I know you are there . Nothing in this world can make me re-think over it, but what about those and many more who lost the faith in you that day or many such days in the past ? ”

He did not answer me that moment , but i did get my reply soon. And i hope everyone finds their own.

My question to you now is, so you don’t believe in god and look, you will do anything your GODMEN( the so called swamis of the world ) will tell you.

I absolutely respect one’s opinion and belief in what so long as it makes you a better person in life.  But what about THOSE lot – who one day decided and voted their own Godman amongst us and claimed their search is over.

Swami Paramhansa Nityanand,video footage of whose indulging in sexual acts with women was telecast by Tamil TV channels last week . His  whereabout is not yet known.

Sant Swami Bhimanandji Maharaj  is a self-styled godman who preaches spirituality while running a prostitution racket in south Delhi.

To ideally speaking, they are not to be blamed. If it wasn’t for our blind faith in them – they wouldn’t be exactly the kind of  infamous celebrities  as they are today!

I demand a peace of mind, i demand to choose my own god, I demand absolute transparency  of every single self styled godman.

Just once wouldn’t you love for someone to simply show you the evidence for God’s existence? No arm-twisting. No statements of, “You just have to believe.”  But are you sure  “If god does exist, would you want to know him?

I know there are a  gazillion minds who at the moment are just willing to give me a good fight on this and are ready with their judgments about not believing in god.  Honestly speaking, I don’t care. To each, his own.

As someone rightly quotes : Every evening I turn my worries over to God.  He’s going to be up all night anyways.

As for you guys, if this gives you even a lil shiver in your heart, i would think my job here is done :)
