I am a Hindu by birth. But if someone asks me what is my religion, I would say:
- It is KINDNESS
- It is COMPASSION
And my God is: LOVE
My God is not sitting in a temple or a church or a mosque or any other place of worship. There is no god sitting on any mount or in any heaven!!
The love in our hearts is God! If we are kind, if we are compassionate; we are godly; we are spiritual!
There is no God outside of you. There is no God outside of me.
There is no God who can ever be explained or defined!
Love doesn’t need any language. Love is a feeling and it can only be experienced. Love only needs loving! And God Being Love needs only loving. God too can only be experienced.
Hindu scriptures describe God as: Satchitananda — Sat Chit Ananda
Sat: Ever Existent
Chit: Ever Conscious
Ananda: Ever new Bliss
That is my God. That is the God I worship. That is the God I love. And that is the God I see and feel in the places of worship of all faiths and religions. Once we are filled with love we shall always be blissful.
And ultimately my Father and I are One. Indian rishis and scriptures had said that too, millenniums ago: I am He. My soul, my love is a vital and inseparable part of the Great Spirit, of Divine Love.
I have made friends and love bloggers from all religions and all countries! (And that is so in my personal non blogging friends too!!) To name just a few: Saba is a Muslim from Pakistan; Jyot is a Sikh – An Indian living in the US; Yeka is a Catholic (believe in a personal God) and lives in Philippines; Huguette lives in Lebanon and doesn’t believe in an orthodox God; Dawn lives in USA and loves Jesus Christ; Betul is from Turkey; Vee is from Canada; Helen (Eilidh) is from England/Belgium, Kamal is from Mumbai and so on ….. I love them all because they are filled with love and kindness.
The Holy Geeta, Bible and Quran sit side by side on the shelves of the bookstores and they never fight! Those who fight are the ones who have never read them or have not imbibed their message of love, universal peace and brotherhood!
There is not and there can’t be any difference in: Christ Consciousness or Krishna Consciousness or the Consciousness of Prophet Muhammad and Buddha; or any self realised being.
There is no God of vengeance and there is no God we should be fearful of.
God is Love
God is Peace
God is Joy
God is Bliss
God is Patience
God is Compassion
God is Light
God is Purity
God is Beauty
Unselfishness is God
Nature is God
God is in the fragrance of the flowers.
God is manifest in every sunrise and every sunset.
God is manifest in the smile of the child and in the hug of a friend.
God is there in every pure emotion and thought.
We are going through very turbulent times. There is so much unrest and uncertainty in the young as well as old. The only way we can help the world is by changing our consciousness; and by not getting sucked into the negativity being spewed by media, the politicians and their allies. Once we raise our consciousness, once we become love; once we tear the veil of separation; we help whole of humanity.
I will love till my last breath 💕💕
