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.
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
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 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 complicated.
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 uncertainty…
God:Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.
Me:If suffering is optional, why do good people always suffer?
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 become better
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
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 the New Year with a new sense of inspiration.
God:Well. Keep the faith 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.
