Messaging with God
God: Hello! Did you call me?
Me: Called you? No... who is this?
God: This is GOD. I heard your prayers. So I thought I will chat with
Me: I do pray. Just makes me feel good. I am actually busy now. I am in
the midst of something...
God: What are you busy at? Ants are busy too.
Me: Don't know. But I can't find free time. Life has become hectic. It's
rush hour all the time.
God: Sure. Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you results.
Activity consumes time. Productivity frees it.
Me: I understand. But I still can't figure it out. By the way, I was not
expecting YOU to buzz me on instant messaging chat.
God: Well I wanted to resolve your fight for time,
by giving you some clarity. In this net era, I wanted to reach you through the
medium you are comfortable with.
Me: Tell me, why has life become complicated now?
God: Stop analyzing life. Just live it. Analysis is what makes it
Me: Why are we then constantly unhappy?
God: Your today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday. You are
worrying because you are analyzing. Worrying has become your habit. That's why
you are not happy.
Me: But how can we not worry when there is so much
God: Uncertainty is inevitable, but worrying is optional.
Me: But then, there is so much pain due to
God: Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.
Me: If suffering is optional, why do good people
God: Diamond cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be purified
without fire. Good people go through trials, but don't suffer. With that
experience their life becomes better not bitter.
Me: You mean to say such experience is useful?
God: Yes. In every term, Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test
first and the lessons afterwards.
Me: But still, why should we go through such tests?
Why can't we be free from problems?
God: Problems are Purposeful Roadblocks Offering Beneficial
Lessons (to) Enhance Mental Strength. Inner strength
comes from struggle and endurance, not when you are free from problems.
Me: Frankly in the midst of so many problems, we
don't know where we are heading.
God: If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. Look
inside. Looking outside, you dream. Looking inside, you awaken. Eyes provide
sight. Heart provides insight.
Me: Sometimes not succeeding fast seems to hurt
more than moving in the right direction. What should I do?
God: Success is a measure as decided by others.. Satisfaction is a measure
as decided by you. Knowing the road ahead is more satisfying than knowing you
rode ahead. You work with the compass. Let others work with the clock.
Me: In tough times, how do you stay motivated?
God: Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to
go. Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.
Me: What surprises you about people?
God: when they suffer they ask, "Why me?" When they prosper, they never ask
"Why me?" Everyone wishes to have truth on their side, but few want to be on the
side of the truth.
Me: Sometimes I ask, who am I, why am I here. I
can't get the answer.
God: Seek not to find who you are, but to determine who you want to be. Stop
looking for a purpose as to why you are here. Create it. Life is not a process
of discovery but a process of creation.
Me: How can I get the best out of life?
God: Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence.
Prepare for the future without fear.
Me: One last question. Sometimes I feel my prayers
are not answered.
God: There are no unanswered prayers.. At times the answer is NO.
Me: Thank you for this wonderful chat. I am so
happy to start this day with a new sense of inspiration.
God: Well. Keep the faith and confidence and drop the fear. Don't believe
your doubts and doubt your beliefs. Life is a mystery to solve, not a problem to
resolve. Trust me. Life is wonderful if you know how to live.
"Life is what we make it, always has
been, always will be."
