A letter to God

 

Dear God,

Many a times I fail to understand what is the purpose of my life. I feel, I discharge all my duties towards my family to my best and ofcourse, I am unable to satisfy everyone. All I am looking for is love and love from everybody. It hurts a lot when people so dear to me – a family member, or a friend, hurts me like there is nothing between us, prioritize their ego & needs above the relationships….. God, it is at times like these, as a human being, I  get suspicious of your plan, for me and my life. It is at such times, I feel low and drained out.

I know, dear God, if you have put me through this test, I must be capable of handling  it. I know, I need to treat each experience as a learning and move forward in life. There is no prescribed syllabus in the school called life. Every person goes through experiences and learns as per his/her need as per the law of Karma. So, if this is what I need to endear, I will do so. Please give me the courage to sail forward in life.

God

This is my way of communicating with my God, at times of distress and troubles. When I write down my troubles and communicate with Him, I often find a solution or I get the wisdom to look into myself or think from the other persons perspective. Believe me, it is easy and it works !!

I’m sure each and everyone of us go through ups and downs of life, be it in relationships, career, finance, health….What is your way to get out of situations like these? What do you do when you feel low? Do share your thoughts. Would love to hear from my fellow members 🙂

A lesson on Gender Discrimination

via Daily Prompt: Bewildered

cartoon-3082809__340.png

” God feels no anger, no matter how many times we err. He is the fountainhead of limitless, unconditional love”.

The above quote, which I found in one of my surfing sprees, highly inspired, intrigued and moved me. I printed it and it found a place on my wardrobe, to serve me as a timely reminder. A reminder, to remind me, that when I err, my caretaker forgives me, showers His unconditional love on me and does not get angry at me. So following on His footsteps, when my little ones, do something, which I don’t approve of, I would glance at this message and it would serve me as a gentle reminder to calm down my disturbed nerves of anger. (It worked mostly and only when I was in my room, where I could look at it :(, sadly)

The other day, as I was busy in the kitchen, with my routine chores, my little one storms into the kitchen and tells me, “Mamma, I have made some changes to the message you have on your wardrobe”. I was obviously a bit bewildered, on how to react and what are the changes she could have possibly made, as that message was dear to my heart. Well anyways, keeping calm, I mustered courage to ask her, what changes have you made? “Mamma, there’s a lot of gender discrimination in that message”. Unable to follow, I probed further.  She said, “In school, they are teaching us about gender discrimination”. She explained a bit about the topic and then said, “so accordingly I have made changes to the quote”. I went along with her to take a look at the “appropriate” changes, which had changed “GOD” to “GODDESS”, “HE” to “SHE”. The  only place she got stuck and didn’t know how to proceed was, whether to change ‘fountainhead’ in the above quote to ‘fountaintail’ (The confusion was prevalent in her mind as, HE became SHE, God became Goddess, so, whether fountainhead should become fountaintail of love).

I couldn’t help, bursting out into laughter at the sheer innocence of my little darling and gave her  a BIG HUG !! My quote, my message actually worked as a reminder to me to shower unconditional love on my little one 🙂

 

The referee

A strategy requires energy. Energy of the brain to think forward, to plan, to get the approach right, and a lot of people belong to this category, who plan out their strategy on a detailed and minute basis to optimize the game plan of life.

But, not to forget, there is a blueprint of our life with the Master Strategist. A plan for every one, and everyone with a plan. An approach and master plan to connect us to the game called life. So, whatever we plan and whatever strategies we make, the last and final call always is with HIM – the referee. No wonder then,  it is said, man proposes and GOD disposes !!

Dear God

Dear God,

I face an obstacle in life,

I pray unto you to resolve it,

I wish to have faith and

I wish to surrender.

But,

I have a problem.

I have a monkey mind,

Which makes my thoughts jump from one tree to another,

From a higher branch to a lower one,

I wish to tame it,

But,

I have a problem.

I get caught in the whirlwind of thoughts,

I get caught in the willy-nilly of life,

I get stressed by the umpteen chores,

I try to meditate to catch them all,

But,

I have a problem.

I fail to silence them all,

I take a few steps forward and fall,

I determine to do it once more, I make a resolve,

I will pray unto you, for you are above all.

Please show me my path,

Don’t let it be a one-way street,

Please share a glimpse or a snippet from my life with me,

Give me an indication,

Show me that my obstacles and problems

Are ‘Work In Progress’ at your workshop,

And please tell me, that you are always with me !!

In the court room

via Daily Prompt: Substandard

One day, in the court of God, a case was presented. A case where the entire human race was on a trial, because they were leading a substandard life. A life where there was a breach of contract, a contract with the Almighty, to live with love, peace, kindness and compassion.

The trial begun. The charges against the humans were many, serious and grave.

  • The human beings have no connect with the source, the power within and outside of them.
  • There is total disrespect for each other. Crimes against people, animals are on the rise.
  • The acts of selflessness, love, compassion are things of the past.
  • Life has become all about power, greed, hierarchy.
  • Work, stress, anxiety and tension are in the drivers seat and are steering their life.
  • The beautiful place called earth has been destroyed by causing serious damage to the environment. Melting glaciers, deforestation, pollution all in the name of advancement.
  • Dependency on technology has robbed human life of it’s charm. Heavy use of gadgets takes away valuable time meant for human welfare.
  • Families have been taken for granted. Dinner is in the presence of the huge “idiot box”, mobiles and other videos. Feeding kids is no longer a pleasurable activity for mothers. It is a task to be done for the day.
  • People have become judgemental, always judging and evaluating people and situations, finding faults, playing the blame game, holding on to things.

God was shocked. The humans were my creations. I created them with lot of creativity and passion for them to experience life. They seem to have forgotten that I had filled their heart with love. Their memory of being relaxed, practicing silence and communicating with me, has been erased. They are in a mad rush, caught in a melee and are disturbed. They have slipped to the lowest form of existence.

Being the fountainhead of love, God delivered his verdict, without prejudice. He appointed a jury (group of learned scholars, spiritually advanced souls) to guide the  human beings who have gone astray, to bring them back to the path of love, peace, kindness, moral philosophy, ethical value systems and virtues of fairness and integrity !!

We are all in the path of evolution again…and the journey continues.

Seriousness

via Daily Prompt: Seriousness

One day, just as I finished bathing my little 6 year old daughter, and was dressing her up, with all seriousness she asked me..”Mom, everybody has a moustache right, whether its a boy or a girl? I was taken aback by her innocent question, all the same, I tried my best to answer her question.  Girls have a very little growth on the upper lip, which is barely visible, while for boys/men its a dense growth of hair and is called a moustache.

She was quite fascinated by what she heard and said, “mama, I like a Moustache, and I should’ve had one”. To which, I said, Oh..you should’ve been a boy. You should’ve asked God to make you a boy. Why did you choose to be a girl? Now, the ball was in her court, and she replied “You know what mama? Actually, I was supposed to be a boy, but God told me that if I choose to be a girl, I would have the best mummy in the whole world, so I chose to be a girl”.

Awww.. as with her question, I was equally enthralled with her answer. My journey of talks with my little one -from a moustache to the best mummy… a child’s innocent conversation always fills my heart with love and emotion.

Shine

via Daily Prompt: Shine

I’m sure most of you wake up to forwards and good morning messages on Whatsapp or the like. When I read today’s word for daily prompt, the one thought that crossed my mind was Almighty, as he would always want his children to shine. I just tried to take my wonderment to the next level to see and feel how would it be to wake up to a good morning message from God. It goes thus..

 

Golden rays of the morning sun,

Shimmering in the horizon,

Kissing the soft blue sky,

Inspiring you to rise high.

rays-687316__340

Spreading the rays of hope,

Despite despair and failures don’t mope,

Teaching you to get up after every fall,

Rising high again, to stand up tall.

 

My children, rise up like the big bright sun,

It’s My positive light for each and everyone,

Cleanse your soul and spirit with this light,

I will shine within you in the form of golden light.

GOOD MORNING !!
