Where Art Thou My Lord?!   Leave a comment

Prayers, religious rituals and rites, austerities, fasting… all these are of no use unless the mind is tamed and held in proper control. They’re all just the means to an end, the end which is a new beginning of our life, the second birth. We have been clinging ourselves to the means and have forgotten the end long back. One has to discard the means after reaching the goal. Those means can be preserved and passed on to those who lack them or don’t know about them at all. But the sad thing is, all those means to the great end have been held in hostage by some megalomaniac sections of the society. They never reach the goal nor allow anyone to aim for the goal!

God wants us to live in Him and make Him live in ourselves. Then, there arises no need to pray to Him frantically. What’s the need of prayer when the one who prays and the one prayed are one and only? What’s the need of searching for happiness all around when you’re one with the happiness itself? What’s the need for you to be avaricious of gold and diamonds when you yourself are pure gold and an ever luminous diamond?

It’s God’s wish, everyone of us reach that stage where there’s no need for begging Him through intense prayers, rather, He wants us to be the masters of our own selves with His permanent abode firmly established in the core of our hearts. This is the ultimate state where there’s no need to communicate with God with any sound or with the chanting of any sacred mantra or with any prayer resorting to intense austerities. Where’s the need for you to resort to all these when you’re in constant communion with the ever resplendent Lord Almighty? This state is nothing but ‘Advaita’ (Monism or Non-dualism) where there is no need to communicate with Him with any word or sound and no need for searching for Him in any internal or external object. There’s only one sacred sound out of which all the sounds are manifested and there’s only one ‘eternally formless one’, omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent, by / through whom all the forms and shapes are manifested.

Reaching Him and being one with Him is so easy and so simple provided we are simple and not hardened by the external influences. Not become impure by our attachment to the ego, selfishness and other such enemies.

The more outward we go for peace and happiness, the more distressed we end up. The real happiness and peace is just deep inside us. The more you delve deeper, the greater will be your joy, peace and bliss!

Believe me, this is out of my own experience, the more we pray to God to have His grace and blessings, the more distant He goes from us, the more we look for Him, the more obscure He becomes, the more we search for Him either inside or outside, the more He evades us!

He just wants us to own Him, to feel Him as being One with us and to live in Him and let Him live in us forever and ever!

How merciful is the Lord Almighty!!!

God is nothing but Love… You love Him by loving one and all… You get to know Him by knowning yourself… You live in Him by letting Him live in you…!!!

सब का मालिक एक l

God is One & Only One! He is that ‘Eternally Formless One’ manifested in myriad forms!

The ‘All Pervasive and Complete One’, to whom I pay my heartfelt obeisances…
