GOD on my mind

Let’s talk God today – some of us put all our faith into God, some of us don’t believe his existence, some dwindle in between and trust God as per convenience, some fight wars for their Gods and that’s the most funny horror human kind lives……most of them believe their God is superior and use invective words for others’ Gods.To take over this psyche, silver-tongued self proclaimed Godmen and Goddesses add to the already messed up society. They literally hypnotize masses who in turn lionize them. This game sounds pretty harmless, but it’s not the case. Anyways, we are not discussing the grotesque manners God is defined by this section…..so what exactly is God!! What do you think when we are told by all ancient scripts that God is within us…. I feel that’s exactly where the answer lies.

We are connected to this entire universe through five elements – Earth,sky,air,fire, water.In Hinduism, God is called as Bhagwaan – which is actually an abbreviation for these five critical elements of nature. It’s a Sanskrit word wherein Bhu=bhumi=Earth, Ga=gagan=sky,Va=vayu=air, Aa=agni=fire, Ne=neer=water .So basically as per the ancient most way of living i.e Hinduism God is actually nature. So the real devotees would be people who can live in coherence with these basic elements of nature.To put into perspective Hinduism is not a religion as it’s made out to be in modern times. It’s rather a manual for good living. Let’s attempt to decode the facts laid out in this manual.

Earth

Earth gives every being the ground and gravity to live.It provides fertile surface with ample food for survival and also to produce food.It serves as a reservoir for rich healing minerals.The sustainable manner in the way earth functions is flawless.Nothing is less and nothing goes waste. Earth is a grounded giver which builds, heals and sustain life in an impeccable way.

Sky

When we look at the sky, we see infinity. It’s up there and beyond to no-one knows where. It’s magical and intriguing to the extent that we can star gaze for hours and hours and still wonder our existence.The universe, though a vast entity still connects with us very closely. We are forever curious to know,what’s in there and instinctively believe our lives are being run by some super powers in there.Practically speaking, earth rotates in space at 1000mph and revolves around sun at 67,000 mph and this is no less than a magic. Isn’t it? Our milky way galaxy is moving through space at 1.3million mph…. If this is not divine then what will be.

Air

Air is the optimum mixture of gases which ensures sustenance of life on our planet. At least so far we think so, as we haven’t find life forms elsewhere in space.Inhaling and exhaling and repeat… That’s life!…a process we begin the moment we are born until we die.

Fire

Fire is an element that burns everything to ashes which is no longer serving it’s purpose and breaks it down back to simpler forms.A tamed fire is fuel for several activities we do to sustain our daily lives. Fire in the belly pushes us to scale the heights we dream of. It’s easily other name for grit and determination which wins over talent undisputedly. Fire has dual nature of destruction and construction as well and that’s what makes it unique and Godly.

Water

Water, as we know, sustains so many life forms. It’s this medium, which is said to have cradled first life forms with its unique delicate nature.Water flows and the flow is so dynamic that it helps so many life forms to flow in it and yet again water itself flows within all life forms.We humans, are 60 percent water. The flow of fluids and important nutrients determine life quality which is facilitated by water, so that’s the level of importance water holds.Water cleanse us inside out everyday by means of sweating and excretions to get rid of toxins……. tears to shed the stress away and let go of the things which doesn’t matter much, as we all have God within us and around us.

This is what God means to me and when we say that we never die it actually means we are born with these five elements within us and at the end we simplify back to these elements and reform again…. the cycle repeats and repeats….

  1. A kindle , which is being enlightened by you, must reach to the line, an untold of ‘us’ and where we have left so many more among ‘us’.. Make your thoughts to reach masses. You can achieve much more. Great thought.

  2. Superbly summed up. God is nature, worship it,… Take care of it… You will be taken care of (by back)….. God in the name of religion is not required.

  4. Very educative. We have grown to distant ourselves from the true purpose of religion over the years which was union.

    Thank you for highlighting the importance of the elements and the connection to all through them.

  7. I hope you will consider reading the Bible in your search for truth. The Bible says Jesus is Truth. I know that to be true in my life. Begin with the book of John. God bless you my friend! The Bible says, โ€œSeek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.โ€ (Jeremiah 29:13)
