Understanding of God
God is the epitome of knowledge and power. To me, he is a good spirit and supernatural being. He is accountable and that’s why people burden him with queries. Praying to him adds meaning to our lives. And that feel of goodness combines with every action we do. I believe god is present in the good things we do. My connections with god are during the glorious moments of silence and it’s usually with a powerful thought that brings a twinkle to the eventual belief.
I’m fine with any belief that does no harm to people. I’m at loggerheads with the way religion is being projected. I have no faith in religious practices, which are sometimes scary and disturbing. I believe very much in positive vibes, energy and frequencies all around, but I don’t think god is something beyond us and it’s surely someone we represent. It is difficult to define who or what god is but he can’t be separated as a different entity. He is within us and we need to rediscover ourselves to trace him.
I wish there were no differences in the way we treat fellow human beings. I’m worried as I see no one with enough of a genuine sense of humour to lead a contented life. If I get a chance to play God, I will take the opportunity to ban all religions and castes. Since everyone has to listen to me, I will enforce a standard code to implement good human conduct and peace.
Work is worship. My work place is my favourite pilgrimage spot. The level of sanctity I observe here is as convincing as anything in places of worship.
