Part 2 of 2

Different religions are equal in all respect:

There is also a possibility, that you may be follower of another religion not mentioned here. No matter what religion you belong to and no matter what your ways and means of praying God are, you must ensure to practice humanitarianism in your life. In case you are deviating from suggested path and not following teaching depicted in your chosen religion, you are not a true disciple or a follower.

Tree of Godliness:

Always remember that we all are part of a huge tree of Godliness. Trunk of this tree signifies humanitarian values. This is the main religion of all human beings. Branches of this tree represent various prevalent religions of this world including Christianity, Hinduism and Islam as major religions and Baha’i faith, Buddhism, Confucianism, Jainism, Judaism, Lamaism, Shinto, Sikhism, Taoism and Zoroastrianism etc. as minor religions.

Then there are sub branches, associated with each branch. Christianity has Catholics, Protestants, Anglicans and Orthodox etc. Hinduism has Vaishnavism, Shaivism, Shaktism and Smartism etc. And Islam has sub branches in form of Shia, Sunni, Sufis and Ahmadis etc. And all those people belonging to these religions are leaves of this tree.

God has created harmony in nature:

Now imagine that a leaf is grown on a sub branch of Protestant on a Christian branch. Will it hate, confront or pluck another beautiful leaf grown on a sub branch of Shia of Islam branch or an Orthodox on its own Christian branch? We all are such leaves living on different branches. These branches are originated from the trunk at the same level. Therefore every branch and sub branch of this tree is equal in all respect. As a result, all religions of this world have equal importance. None of the religions are superior or inferior to one another.

God has created harmony in this universe. Why can’t we maintain this harmonious behavior in us?

Almighty God is one:

You are unable to see roots of this tree. Tree is drawing its energy and strength from roots. These roots signify Almighty God. Every branch has given different name to these roots. They name this source of energy as Ahura Mazda, Allah, Bhagwan, Elohim, Ishwar, Jehovah, The Lord and Waheguru etc. But originally it is one and same power.

Here is an example. Now suppose you get a banana for your breakfast. Different people name this fruit in different names. And by changing name of this fruit, will its quality, taste or characteristics change? No way. Similarly God is one and the only one. Every one of us has given a different name to this supreme power.

Remember, we all are like leaves of a single large tree and those leaves do not fight one another, either with leaves from same or different branches. Then why do we people fight one another over trivial issues?

We all are equal in all respect:

In fact, people have confined themselves to the boundaries established by them. Boundaries are that of religion, caste, creed, language, color of skin, sexual discrimination and territorial regions. We all are equal in all respect. Blood running in everyone’s blood vessels is similar. Our bodies have similar systems. Then why do we discriminate?

Your current religion is with you for current birth only:

Always remember that your ‘name’ is given to this body you are living in. Similarly your ‘religion’ is given to you either by your parents or by you, for this human body. Prior to your birth, you were not having this name and this religion, which you are bearing now. And also remember, after your death, your soul will not carry this name and religion with you.

You are an eternal soul:

Yes, you are an eternal soul. This soul was never born nor will it ever die. It is as eternal as God. And you are on endless journey in this universe. You are not a body but a soul. Your age is endless years. You have always been an integral part of this universe from the very beginning and will remain in this universe till the end.

You are born in this body only for present human experience of approximately one hundred odd years. You have been born countless number of times and have died also. Every time you are born, your body is changed. Subsequently, name of your body is also changed every time you take a new birth. Similarly, your religion is also changed every time.

You change your name and your religion with every new birth:

In this body, you may be a Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim or a follower any other religion. But this religion will remain with you as long as you are alive in this body. Afterward, you will again be a soul and take birth in a new body, with a new name and a new religion. In your present body, you are unable to remember about your innumerous previous bodies and equal number of religions. There is a possibility that you had been born in all other religions of this world. There is also a possibility that you had been one of the greatest personalities of yester years. Who knows?

Then why do you hate other religions?

As you had already been followers of all other religions of this world in various other bodies then why do you hate all those religions in this body? You were living in that religion few years ago in another body, you hate today.

Two categories of misled people:

There are two categories of misled people. One is hardcore people’s category and the other is ignorant people’s category.  In the name of religion of this physical body, some hard core people are so rigid that they mislead ignorant people of their community.

Fear is created in minds of people in the name of religious beliefs:

These hard core rigid people create fear in minds of that majority of ignorant people for the punishment from God for not obeying them and not protecting their religion. This fear is created in the name of religion and in the name of God. And these ignorant people deviate from the path of love to hatred out of this fear created by hardcore people.

But that is not true. Have you ever seen that roots of a tree punishing leaves of the same tree? Roots are God and we are leaves. God is rather nourishing us with His nutrition and giving us strength.

These ignorant people are also misled by hard core and rigid people that God will accord higher status if they are killed for the sake of their religion. I fail to understand, how God can provide special treatment to those they are spreading hatred and are killing innocent people?

These misled ignorant and hard core people are in fact working against principles of their own religion. They sometime kill people. And those killed innocent people were also sons and daughters of God and were living on different branches of the same tree.

Your religion is vast:

Such people do not know vastness of their existing religion. All religions of this world as so vast there is no need to protect them. Men do not protect religions rather religions protect men.

Limit of tolerance of these hard core people is bare minimum for all those people living on other side of their religion. Their rigidity is to the extent that they do not hesitate to attack or kill people from other religious belief. It is not fair for them.

And in this process if such hard core and rigid people are killed, they call them martyrs.

After death everyone will become one with the universe:

All leaves falling from the tree become one with the soil. This soil signifies the universe. Similarly every one of us after leaving this body becomes one with the universe. And subsequently once again born in a new body and a new religion and is grown as a new leaf on the tree of Godliness.

And this cycle goes on.

Shed your hatred and develop love:

I fervently request all those people of this world having involved them in spreading hatred and killing others in the name of their religion, please once again read scriptures of your chosen religion and know its essence. Knowing its true essence is highly essential. You will find that your religion is conveying you a message of love, mutual understanding, forbearance, care, share, tolerance, acceptance, trust and service. And once you are able to know about this essence, please teach the same to others belonging to your community. Tell them to come out of their pseudo religious beliefs of hatred and killing. They must proceed towards their original and true religion.

Come back to your true religion of humanitarian values.

God is waiting to embrace you at the entrance.

Love has immense power to unite you with Almighty God.

Part 1 of 2

It is easy enough to be friendly to one’s friends. But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion. The other is mere business. ~ Mahatma Gandhi

True religion is real living; living with all one’s soul, with all one’s goodness and righteousness. ~ Albert Einstein

True religion is giving and finding one’s happiness by bringing happiness into the lives of others. ~ William J H Boetcker

We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.  ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

The aim of every human being is to understand the meaning of total love.  ~ Author unknown

The question is this: Is man an ape or an angel? I am on the side of the angels. ~ Benjamin Disraeli

Once we as humans understand that we are responsible for our own actions and religion does not give you a free pass to do wrong. The world will be a much better place.  ~ David Hutchinson

Until power is made subservient to morality, humanity will continue to suffer.  ~ Tasneem Hameed

Keep reminding yourself that you are human. You’re entitled to make mistakes; everyone does. And you will learn from them and use those lessons to improve your life. ~ Senora Roy

The proper function of a human being is to live, not to exist.  ~ Melchor Lim

 

Physically people are living close but mentally apart from one another:

We are living in twenty first century. Technologically, this is the most advanced age. Due to tremendous pace of development in almost every sphere of life, this world seems to be a small place. Distances have reduced drastically. Advancement in communication and aviation industry has brought people closure to one another.

From technological point of view people of this world are physically closure to one another, but mentally they seem to be living apart. Religious fundamentalism seems to be increasing at faster pace. Most of the people of this world are fighting one another in the name of their religions.

Practice humanitarianism:

Most of the people have tied themselves to a limited space of their religion.  It seems people at large have forgot that Almighty God has sent them on this earth to follow only one religion i.e. humanitarianism. Every human being is first a human being and later a Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Muslim, Sikh or a Zoroastrian etc.

Do not hate or harm people of other religions:

All these prevalent religions were created by great messengers of God with sole intention and understanding not to hate others. Rather, they all wanted their followers to tread path of love and compassion. Every religious leader preached this world to follow humanitarian values. None of them have ever advocated that in the name of religion, there should be division among people. All these religions were created not to hate anyone and to cause trouble or kill those persons who do not belong to your religion.

Do not force others to join your religion:

Why do we fight one another in the name of religion?

Why do people want to increase number of persons following their religion?

Why do they want to increase head counts of followers in their religion?

What do they want to prove with this increase?

It is better that instead of increasing quantity better make efforts to improve quality of existing people of your religion. Those creators of these religions never advocated to forcibly or otherwise converting them to your religion.

It is difficult to understand why people from different religions are limiting their vision and making their mind so narrow. They are not ready to come out of their narrowness. It seems that they have completely forgotten their main religion i.e. humanitarianism.

Essence of various religions:

Followers of different religions must ensure that there is no conflict or confrontation in principles of various religions. But we find that people fighting one another in the name of their religions. This fight is because people are intending to change everyone else in this world except themselves. True religion is all about changing the self. It is not about changing others.  When you change the self, there is no conflict but when you try to change others, there are numerous possibilities of a conflict and confrontation.

What is a religion?

Religion is relationship between God and human beings. True relationship is similar to that we have with our parents.

Purpose of various religions of this world is to promote humanitarian behavior among their followers. Let us remind ourselves about very essence of our chosen religion! Teachings of some of the major religions are given hereunder.

Christianity:

Essence of Christianity is being like Christ.

When we say, we are Christians and we want to be like Christ, we must know about qualities of Christ.

One of the main characteristic of Jesus Christ was His true love. His love was perfect love. He immensely loved everyone living on this planet earth including His enemies. He said to his followers, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” He wanted that your love must not only be in your hearts but also be expressed in your every action.

Christ expressed His love by healing the sick, feeding the hungry and giving His life on the cross to save sinners. He was not only compassionate towards all but had a remarkable habit of forgiving others of their sins. He emphasized on seeking kingdom of heaven within you.

In case you consider you as true Christian, you must honestly follow His teaching in your life.

Hinduism:

Hinduism is the oldest living major religion of this world and is more than 5000 years old. Tolerance is one of the most important and prevalent belief systems of Hinduism. Therefore, Hindus live peacefully and believe in coexistence of different faiths, sects and religions.

Central belief system of Hindus is depicted in two words in ancient Sanskrit language. These are ‘Vasudhaive kutumbakam’. It means entire universe is our family. Hindus believe in principles of universal brotherhood.

In addition, ancient scriptures of Hindu religion Vedas have four principal mantras.

One of the four says, ‘Aham Brahmasmi’ means I am Divine.

And the other says, ‘Tat tvam asi’ i.e. Thou art that.

They see God in self and also in every other soul.

In case you say you are a true Hindu, you must always resort to tolerance and loving others as your family members. You must see God in every other person and therefore behave accordingly.

Islam:

Islam too promotes love, compassion, mercy and understanding as part of every Muslims religious duty.

Holy Qur’an contains exact words of God as revealed to Prophet Muhammad. Some of the sayings of Prophet Muhammad are given here.

  1. The strong one is not he who knocks out his adversary. The strong one is he who keeps control over his temper.
  2. It doesn’t befit a true man that he should opt to cursing.
  3. God, the dignified has no mercy for one who has no mercy for others.
  4. None of you is a perfect Muslim until he desires for his brother Muslims that which he desires for himself.
  5. Look at the person who is inferior to you and do not look at one who is superior to you. Thus you will be able to appreciate better the benevolences of God bestowed upon you.
  6. The best of you are those they have the best manners.
  7. Avoid jealously for this destroys good deeds as fire destroys wood.
  8. God, the most High has revealed to me that you should adopt humility so that no body oppresses another, nor one should hold himself above another.
  9. A Muslim never taunts or curses or abuses others nor resorts to vulgar talking.
  10. Plenty of provisions or abundance does not make a person rich and wealthy. Real richness is the benevolence of heart.

You can observe here that Prophet Muhammad has categorically emphasized that you must have to practice humanitarian values to be a true Muslim. If you are a follower of Islam religion, make sure that you are following teachings mentioned in Holy Qur’an.

 

This article is dedicated to memories of my late father, Mr. H.G.Nagpal, who was born this day in 1925. He was living example of love and kindness towards one and all. Motto of his life was service above the self.  He always advocated humanitarian values.

Defining relationship with God (Part 2)

16. October, 2012Religion and SpiritualityNo comments

Dinesh K Nagpal

 

Part 2 of 2

Your relationship with God:

As a consciousness, you are neither born nor will die. Birth and death are related to your body and so are hunger and thirst. Your happiness and sorrow are related to your mind. You are above these feelings of birth and death, hunger and thirst and also happiness and sorrow, because you are neither a body nor a mind. You are pure consciousness, which has come to this earth with your body. This consciousness is also known as soul. And you, the soul is an onlooker and observer of various activities of your body and also of all those activities of this world. But out of your ignorance, you, the soul, have considered you as your body. As a result you are involved in all those worldly activities as a body. And you have forgotten this fact that you, the consciousness, are a part of super consciousness. And therefore you are an integral part of God. In other words, we can say God is within you and you are within God and therefore you and the God are one.

Where will you find God?

Now it is proved that you and the God are one and then to find God, where will you go? He is a part of you and is with you every moment of your life. Then why do you search Him allover the world? You are going to different religious places, pilgrimages and several other places to find God. But He is very much with you all the time. Do not waste your money and energy in finding him outside you. In Vedas it is clearly mentioned, Aham Brahmasmi, it means I am God. It also says, Tatvamasi i.e. you are He, the God.

God is one and is present all the time and everywhere in this universe. He is omnipresent and omnipotent. He is the supreme power and knows everything. He cannot be seen but can be felt. You can see Him in you and feel His presence in you and in other creatures of this world.

See God and His divinity in others. Help them to the best of your abilities, if they need help. You can help them financially, physically and mentally. Do not harm them or ill treat them. By serving others, you are serving God.

Make efforts to attain self realization:

You must realize that God has sent you on this earth for a specific purpose. You must find what that purpose is and why you have acquired this body? In case you are going back to your heavenly abode from this body without discharging your duty, you may have to come back again. As your body is dying every moment, it is therefore important to fulfill your objective without further delay. Do not waste your precious time. Make full use of it for self realization and helping other creations of God.

If you look at the activities of people of this world, you will find that people at large are so involved in worldly affairs and want to earn huge amount of money and are sacrificing their health and peace of mind. Tomorrow, they will be spending all that hard earned money to regain their lost health and peace, but they are not able to get original and natural health. They are totally dependent on hospitals, doctors, body scans, medicines and surgeries. Earning sufficient amount of money for livelihood is good and is essentially required. But it shouldn’t be at the cost of anyone’s loss or by troubling others. Everyone must practice honesty in earning money. And share part of their money to help those they are underprivileged and are in need of the same.

Do not grab others share:

But for most of the people, their lifestyle and mindset is such and their hunger to grab everything on this earth is so big as if they are never going to die and they will take all that stuff with them after their demise. But when death comes to them and immediately after death they are given time to give a thought and review all activities of their life time. And a video of all their actions is played before them. Here they give a thought to all those activities of their life and are made to realize that they never really lived their life properly. But it is too late to realize now. They have lost a golden opportunity to get liberation because their body is no more alive.

It is time to verify your activities and find if you also belong to same category of people? If it is yes, in that case you will have to wait for your next human birth for attaining salvation. But you do not know when your next human incarnation is?  May be now or may be after next 8.4 million births? Who knows? And in your next human birth, what is guarantee that you will not repeat all those silly and insignificant mistakes of current birth? And there is a possibility that you will be trapped in this race forever, like you are already moving from time immemorial.

Then what is the solution to live happily? And how can you get liberation from the cycle of life and death? It is now or never.

How to get liberation from cycle of birth and death:

One of the easiest methods for getting liberation from cycle of life and death is to overcome feeling of animosity with others. Before going to bed, every night forgive everyone from the core of your heart who has animosity and ill feelings against you. And seek forgiveness for all your sins and mistakes from everyone.

Now pray Almighty God by accepting your mistakes and saying, “I have never done a noble task in my life. Please give me at least one more day to live in this body so that I can perform a noble task and help creations of this world. And in case you cannot give me another day to survive, then please accept my regards and last salute of this life.” And while repeating this prayer go to deep sleep.

See what happens next morning. In case you are dead, God will grant you salvation because you have forgiven everyone and also sought forgiveness for all your sins. And if you are alive, you can understand that God has accepted your request and has given you more time to repent and help his creations and do some noble task. Immediately after getting up thank to God for giving you an opportunity to serve His creation. For the whole day there must be a feeling of helping others in your mind as it is depicted in following mantra.

Sarvey bhavantu sukhinah, Sarvey santu niramayah;
Sarvey bhadrani pashyantu, Ma kishchit dukha bhag bhavet.

It says, “May all be happy, May all be free from disease.

May all realize what is good, May none be subject to misery.”

You must also remember the promise you made to God. Spare time for fulfillment of the same. There are several ways to help mankind, animal kingdom and plant kingdom. You can choose the way you like and suits you the most.

Repeat the same ritual subsequent nights. In case, you have not been able to fulfill your promise and couldn’t do anything for the welfare of creations of God, ask for forgiveness to God and promise to fulfill your promise next day. And during the day do not harm anyone with your thoughts, words and actions. This is your prayer to God and sure way to get salvation. You do not need to practice any other rituals and exercises for the same.

I am hopeful, everyone one of us, will practice for the welfare of all that creation of God and get salvation.

God bless you all.

Please keep reading and giving your comments.

Today this blog completes two years of its existence. To mark this day, I am presenting a definition of your relationship with God. In the beginning of this blog, my second article was ‘Know yourself’. In this article brief information was given about you, that you are not a body but a soul. Now more elaborate explanation is given here for your information and for helping you attaining salvation.

Your birth as a human body:

Human being is a unique creation of the God. Getting human body is a privileged natural phenomenon. You must be thankful to the God for having given you this human body. Prior to being born in this body, you have traveled almost 8.4 million bodies of different species. And you have also borne troubles and miseries of different bodies including that of animal kingdom and plant kingdom. Your body might have been killed, slaughtered and subjected to various pains during your previous births. Now this human body is given to you for almost one hundred years. Only a few live above this mark. But ‘your’ life is infinite as you have been traveling in different bodies for infinite period of time.

You must always keep in your mind that you are not this body; rather this body belongs to you. And it has been given to you for a short period. If you compare your existence with life span of this human body, you are here in this body for a fraction of time. Your body is a vehicle for you to travel in this world. This time you are given a human body to travel to this world.

If you are not a body then a question comes in mind, who are you?

You are not this body, you are consciousness:

We are here to seek an answer to this eternal question and know who are you? Man has been trying to find answer to this question for ages. Various theories have been proposed and almost every religion and culture has given a thought to this question. And a genuine explanation confirms that you are pure consciousness. Because of this consciousness, your body is alive, functioning and discharging its duties. Without consciousness, human body is said to be dead. And this consciousness is an integral part of super consciousness. Origin of this consciousness is considered from super consciousness that is God.

Now the second question comes in mind, then who is God? And the answer comes that God is not a person. He has no shape, color, size or form. He is a something like energy. You cannot see energy but feel its presence. Same is the case with God; you cannot see Him but can feel His presence.

Your body is given specific number of breaths:

Every form of life is given certain period to stay in this world. It varies for every species. As a human you are also given certain period of time to stay in this body. That period is in form of certain stock of breaths to survive as a body. Out of your total stock some part is already consumed. But you do not know that how much balance stock is available with you?  This fact has been kept secret by the super consciousness or the nature and has not been revealed to you. With every breath this human body is driven closure to death. It is not known to you when would this life end? It may be several years from now or it can be few moments. You do not know!

Purpose of your body is to help you attaining salvation:

You should always keep in mind this human body is given to you for a specific purpose of your life. It is said; on fulfillment of the purpose you will be free from the cycle of life and death and will attain salvation. And to help attaining salvation, God has given intellect to human being that separates him from rest of the creations of God. You are considered superior to members of plant and animal kingdom. But most of the people on this earth are not utilizing their intellect for the same. There is lot of ignorance on this important aspect of human life. This intellect is an important tool to help you attaining self realization.

Difference between animals and human:

Animals have four basic instincts, i.e. eating food, sleeping, fear from death and giving birth to off springs. Most of the people on this earth are also plagued by these four instincts. They are behaving no different from that of animals. Rather there are some people worst than animals. E.g. animals do not harm you unless they feel that you are harming them or snatching their food or children. While human being can harm you for none of your fault. They can even kill you for their selfish gains.

God’s family:

All creations of God have similar consciousness in them be it a human, an animal or a plant. As long as there is life, there is consciousness in them. Every creation belongs to God’s family. Therefore we all are members of God’s family. In that sense we all are members of same family and are brothers and sisters.

Have you ever seen anyone harming his family members? Neither animals nor humans harm their family members. Even most dreaded, violent and criminal minded people will never harm their family members. Then why are you involved in harming members of your family for your selfish gains? Possibly it is due to your ignorance? You are never taught what is right and what is wrong.

Do not harm members of God’s family:

It is your prime responsibility not to harm anyone in this world, either with your thoughts, words and actions. This entire world is family of God. In case you are troubling any member of His family, will He be happy with you and your activities? No, He will not be happy. Rather He shall be annoyed with you. Hence to keep God happy and content, you must not harm anyone nor kill His creations. Do not even trouble anyone for your selfish gains.

From God Particle to God Realization (Part 3)

25. January, 2012Religion and SpiritualityNo comments

By Dinesh K. Nagpal

Part 3 of 3

How to realize presence of God in you:

Everyone knows that God is in subtle form. No one can see Him with naked eyes, though almost everyone feels He is there behind every move in this world. From creation of this universe and till date, He is managing all the affairs with utmost perfection and precision.

Hindu religion believes God is present in every particle of the universe. He is omnipresent. In Vedas it is said,

Aham Brahamasmi, Tatvam Asi.”

It means, I am God and you are also a God. It says realize the presence of God within you. Feel it intensely. Experience the greatness of God within you and at the same time, you must accept and recognize presence of God in others also. Once you develop insight to see greatness of God in others, you also develop compassion and love towards others. You feel and realize beauty in them. You become sensitive towards sorrows and pain of others. You consider them as your brothers and sisters and share loving relationships with everyone.

To enjoy presence of God, you must develop sensitivity towards others. Develop kindness and love towards others and avoid all types of negative feelings for them. Negative vibrations are compelling you to keep away from the presence of God in your life. These vibrations are that of hatred, jealousy, anger, ego, resentment, revenge, nagging, criticism, cheating, stealing, troubling others, use of abusive language, self centered behavior etc. Keep all those negativeness away from your life as these are your dreadful enemies. Such negative feelings are not only keeping you away from God but are also harming your physical, mental and emotional bodies to a great extent.

You can experience divinity of God within you and at the same time help others to develop similar feelings in them.

God never comes from external world. He is omnipresent and is everywhere. He is always with you. You need to develop a vision to feel His presence, a vision of purity, morality, righteousness, excellence, goodness, innocence and godliness. It is time to come out of the judgmental feelings of good and bad, virtue and sin. Try to search beauty in everyone and everywhere and love it.

What God expects from you?

Do you really want to realize the presence of God in you?

Look into your personality and analyze your body language. And see if you are competent enough to realize the presence of God? Certain degree of purity in thoughts and actions is required for the same. Keep vigilant eye on your thoughts, actions and behavior.

In case your tongue is in habit of speaking filthy and abusive language and is always criticizing others, how can you ‘praise’ Almighty God with this impure tongue?

Make your voice ’sweet’ and ‘love filled’.

If your vision has a habit of seeing nudity, pornography, selfishness and negativism in others, including finding faults and you are unable to develop love and compassion filled eyes, how can you prepare yourself to ‘see’ the presence of God within you?

Develop a vision to find hidden ‘beauty’ in everything and everyone.

When your ears are tuned to listening criticism of others, abusive and negative language, sexy words etc. and are in habit of listening loud music and prefer noise, how can you ‘experience’ the subtle and sweet voice of God’s presence in and around you?

Make it sure to keep away from negative environment. Learn to hear ‘praise’ and ‘love’.

In case your hands love to work for selfish gains and have habit of grabbing others share and thrashing and harming others including children, animals, plants and destroying God’s other creations, how can you get access to reach, ‘touch and feel’ the presence of God in your proximity? Ensure to make your hands pure for receiving various gifts from God.

Ensure to make your hands ‘helping’ and ‘working for noble cause’ for receiving various gifts from God. 

Are your feet having habit of treading on sinful path and going to such places which have lust for nudity, sex, crime and other such negativeness, how can you find a way to ‘go to’ that place where God’s presence can be experienced?

Go to places which are full of ‘positive energy’ and ‘purity’.

And, if your heart and mind are already filled with hatred, jealousy, ego, anger, selfishness, lust for sex, harming others etc., how can you ‘fill it’ with pure love of God and give suitable place to God on the seat of your impure heart?

Develop habits of ‘love’ and ‘selflessness’ and ‘positivism’.

God never expects anything material from you. He doesn’t require your money, your power, your offerings and anything else. He wants your praiseworthy tongue, subtle voice full of love and appreciation, love filled eyes, helping hands and loving you in purest form. He expects a pure mind and sacred heart filled with divine love and positive attitude from you. God always wanted to be with you. It is ‘you’ who is keeping the self away from God and at the same time searching Him in Church, Mosque, Gurudwara, Temple, Synagogue and other places of worship.

For God realization, it is necessary for everyone to fill their heart and mind with divine love and compassion for everyone and everything in this world.

In case you want to qualify this exam of experiencing proximity of God, you must achieve qualifying marks as per standards laid down by Him, which signify humanitarian values. Once qualified, you will be given entry to this most sought after club of God’s proximity. And thereafter He will certainly grace you with His presence and bestow His blessings on you as long as you wish to receive the same.

In Gita, Lord Krishna has said,

Yasman-nodvijate loko, lokan-nodvijate ca yah,
harsamarsa-bhayodvegair- mukto yah sa ca me priyah. Gita Ch. 12 V 15

“He for whom no one is put into difficulty and who is not disturbed by anyone, who is equipoise in happiness and distress, fear and anxiety, is very dear to me.”

Thus shed all your assumptions and preconditioned thoughts filled with negativism. God will flood your being with His pure love and proximity.

I sincerely wish and pray Almighty God that He fulfills all your positive desires and wishes.

Keep reading and giving your comments.
