God Is Love

God!! Who is God? Or I should ask, What is God?
These questions always fumbled in my mind in my childhood days. It wasn’t like I didn’t have faith in God. But as a kid, I had curiosities in my mind related to God.

With the passing days, I came to learn he is the only creator and destroyer. He is the savior. He is the care taker. I love My God.

Being a Hindu, I have been always inspired by Hinduism religion and its mythology. Though I never disrespected others’. But I always had a strong belief God is one.

I am from Mathura city in Uttar Pradesh; Lord Krishna’s Birthplace and I am always fascinated by this place. I don’t know why. But I am. I can stay here for my entire life, no matter what. I feel a pious charm, a divine presence.

The day I started reading The “Ramcharitmanasa” penned by great saint “Tulsidas” as adviced by my Mom, I literally came to learn many new things. I felt the eternal existence of god. I cursed myself for being such a fool in my life till then. I watched some of the episodes of “Mahabharata” directed by “Ramananda Sagar”, I realized nothing is beyond it. Bhagwada Gita shlokasΒ spoken by Lord Krishna to Arjuna while the great war of Mahabharata at the land of Kurushetra cover up all the morals and principles. It teaches, Karma always works. “As you sow, so shall you reap.” People are following Science and Science is following the epics. I say, nothing is beyond Science. And Religions capture the Science too.

Sorry, I know some of you may disagree with me but I actually don’t understand the concept of atheists. Atheists believe in morals and principles without following God. But I ask them how could you, if it’s the God only who created Morality?

The day before yesterday, I read some Bible verses for the first time on Wattpad. Never in my life I felt such positivity. I would like to share a few Bible verses.

True indeed. He will direct me in all the doubts and hurdles and comfort me in all my fears. God will throw light in the way of darknesses thus stopping me to lead the wrong path and keep me away from danger.

There is no give and take rule in my relationship with God. It’s divine. He helps me, saves me, guides me, without expecting any return. He don’t wait for any gain. It’s his holy mercy that saved me from difficulties. It’s his love that gave me rebirth and renewal, a new chance; a new beginning.

God says with such love and tenderness. “I am with you, don’t be afraid of anything. I’ll give you the strength to overcome all the fears and obstacles. I’ll support you forever.”

In Hindu mythology, it is explained that God is eternal. He is the controller. In Bhagwada Gita, Krishna says that

“mamaivamso jiva-loke
Jiva-bhutah sanatanah
manah sasthanindriyani
prakrti-sthani karsati”

He means, “The living entities in this conditional world are My fragmental parts, and they are eternal. But due to conditioned life, they are struggling very hard with the six senses, which include the mind.”

And a shloka:

“Sarva-dharman parityajya
Mam ekam saranam vraja
Aham tvam sarva-papebhyo
Moksayisyami ma such”

The god says, “Give up all varities of religiousness, and just surrender unto Me, and in return I shall protect you from all sinful reactions. Therefore you have nothing to fear.”
This shloka runs just parallel to the Bible verse Isaiah 41:10 quoted above. In a nutshell, God is One. And I admire this uniformity in different religions.

We are all part and Parcel of Krishna, our God. Scientists assume the Science as Supreme power. We see, there is always a controller behind any machine. A super advanced Computer also needs a Human being to operate it. Similarly, a man needs a soul which is controlled by god. A human body without Soul is dead and futile. Spirits can be related to God only.
I ask the scientists, Can they bring a life to the dead soul using their advanced technologies? If they can, I can conceive the concept of Atheism as Supreme Power.

To me, God’s fascination is endless. His great power is immeasurable. He is omnipresent.
The love between the two hearts isn’t materialistic. It’s about the connection between two souls. In the same way, one’s love and faith in god can’t be authenticated or verified. It’s about one’s strong belief in God.

    1. Thank you so much. I’m so glad to read your review. Nice to know that you respect all those writings from sacred Gita and Bible. Eventually, all these teachings lead us towards right path. πŸ™‚ ❀

  2. All the religions in the world lead to the same path — the truth of God. You’ve mentioned a lot of excellent points. You might want to read up on some of Stephen Hawking’s work regarding Atheism. IMO, theist or atheist is a personal choice. As long as you’re living righteously, the religion you follow (or not) doesn’t matter. But hey, that’s just me. πŸ™‚

    Great post. Thanks for pointing me to this one. God bless. πŸ™‚

  3. I loved ur thought Shreya. I dont know how old are u but u look quite young and i just loved the fact that u nurture these thoughts at such young age. I mean it takes lot of maturity to be true to such thoughts. Having known ur inclination towards God i recommend that you read the book called “The Laws of the Spirit World” by Khorshed Bhavnagari. It changed my perspective towards life and made my belief in Karma stronger than ever before.
    Also do watch the show “Mann Mein Vishwas hi” on Sony TV featuring everyday at 7 pm. It shows a new story everyday and it relates to the real life experiences of the believers in God and how HE helps them or manifests HIS existence for them in order to bring them out of a difficult situation.
    Just last week i visited your neighbouring state Uttarakhand (earlier a part of UP) and i loved Haridwar & Rishikesh. I could feel some vibes there and the mythological connect that these places have just overwhelemd me. I belong to Mumbai but i always feel like the roots of my incarnation (God knows which birth) must be somewhere from this region. I just returned yesterday and i plan to pen down a writeup soon on “The Land of God”.
    Glad to meet someone who shares similar interests (blogging & firm believer in God) πŸ™‚
    Stay connected!
    God Bless

      Well I am 20 year old. And yes, I am a firm believer of god. I’ll surely look for the book you stated. I know, I’ll love it. ❀
      Haridwar and Rishikesh are just overwhelming. If you haven't been to Mathura, please visit here. πŸ™‚ ❀
      My best wishes for your writeup "The Land Of God". πŸ™‚

  4. I love the bible verses you quoted. I have experienced the truth of them personally in a deep and life saving way. Nothing happens without God’s allowance, and He really does direct our path for our benefit, sometimes painfully so, but only for our best interest. Thank you for sharing!

  5. I liked what u have written…but i am an atheist and i dont believe that some power we called it God controls all this things..i believe that nature(our earth)is the only God that cares for us,helps us,teaches us …

    1. Thank you. I agree with you. Nature(earth, sun, moon, land, water) is the form of god. Being a god believer, I would say, it’s the only God who created nature. On the other hand, An atheist would say, nature is the only god and no one is behind him. Thus varied opinions will be always there. πŸ™‚

  6. Everything else you talk of is good and all the morality and learning from epics and stories. But when you question Atheist or Scientists you are slightly delusion there (well that’s your thoughts and what I am saying in my comments is my thoughts. Not interjecting or questioning you, but providing a alternative view, you may think upon and decide). If they question you to prove the existence of God, will you be able to ?

    You see the dearth in Faith is that you should never question someones belief neither should you challenge them. Because the idea of Faith is Abstract and there is always a grey area with abstract notions.

    I will wait for your comment to say any further.

    1. You are right at your point of view and I am totally fine at that. I won’t object you for that.
      Talking about the evidences, for the existence of that, I mentioned in last, it isn’t materialistic, we can’t prove it by materialistic things; apparatuses and all, the same way We can’t prove our love to our partner just by only buying fancy stuffs.Eventually, It’s always about the feelings.
      Talking about the epics, I always found them a lie when I was a child, but as I started going through them, I gotta learn many new things. I never forced myself to believe them, it was only my inner soul or conscience which let me believe that. And I can never doubt my soul. πŸ™‚

      1. Thank you, am glad that you are glad ! This is the only attitude one should have I presume.. These virtues are useful rather than intelligence which will be at one point of time become the worthless virtue to be possessed by humankind !!

      1. Added to that double thumbs to your title and first line which ends with “what is God?” I was expecting more like a debate but yu made it right. Only by exploring and having a open mind one can find God and not by getting attached to the concept. πŸ™‚

      2. Thank you for appreciating me. I nevah believed the concept of god absent minded. To be honest, I didn’t have built-in faith in god. But as I kept on exploring, I found the infinite reasons to trust god, to have faith in him.

  7. This is something. I am an agnostic though :P. But I liked the way you have built on this thought that first came into your mind. And hte good thing is that you have read religious texts too. Those are filled with wisdoms, applicable even today. πŸ™‚
