I have had an ongoing battle with God.
- Why do you hide?
- Why do you hide how to reach you (God)
His answer – I don’t hide. I am everywhere. Within you and outside you. The pure in heart will see me (Bible). That is the one thing people don’t do – want purity. They know not what purity is (everyone has a concept and definition of what purity is but that is not true. To be pure you must first discover yourself, disengage from the false belief you are the body) Not do they want to become pure.
It is easier to say I am the soul, identify as body and waste an entire life only seeking body pleasures.
My second question is tougher. In the past I wrote a blog about God’s answer to the way paths to God. Oh there are so many different concepts! Everyone thinks their concept is correct! The concept could be self devised or learnt from reading, hearing things on internet or the million odd self assumed Guru title. God answer to it is – they all lead to him. He has permitted the indirect paths to stay. That is his divine will
And that is where I have a problem. Why allow indirect paths to continue??
Thus over time many other methods came into play. People believe in so many things – mantra, Maha mantra, worshiping idol / stone, going to temple, churches etc, jumping up and down reciting a variety of God name, Bhajan / recital / Kiran,, meditation, the inquiry method, just focus on good deeds, yoga, many sects, cults etc
So when you see so much, you will be impressed by one method, maybe difficulties in life make you desperate and you settle for one !
However all those methods promise you God sometimes after you leave the body, or a sell you an excited state of mind as joy of God ( which is not true), prayer ( is sold as talking to God when it is just monologue, and imagination of the mind is thought of as an answer)
This is what the world does For some reason it just does not settle well with me – I am childish and foolish. I am more of a here and now person. Hence my method is Yoga with Shakti awakening. It gives direct and instant contact with God ( not in the fullest form but in a minor way ). It is said that if the full form of God / full awakening is given the body would not sustain it. Only the pure in heart can sustain the full manifestation of God. For this you need a Guru who has realized God
Such Guru behave very differently They do not announce or display. I do not think there is any Guru like this right now I see motivational speakers, money hoarders, charlatans, etc
God does not cost money He is free, up for grabs However, he is exacting in demand for inner purity, a tasking Master when looking at our karma ( actions) and greedy for our pure love. Do not follow any path that does not demand inner purity. Love for all regardless of religion or sect. First find your inner self. When you hear the inner sound of Aum, you will be amazed! All your doubts go away. Your search for a teacher goes away. The Guru who gave you aum is enough ! You no longer need books or scriptures You will laugh at your own past stupidity You will find peace and joy within You will have finally started your journey!
