A word with God – 3
I have discussed some forms of meditation from our daily activities. Some easier forms to have a word with God and feel closer to him. But you may be inquisitive about why to talk to Him when we have so many people around? Sounds like a good question. Read ahead. I am sure you must have experienced any one of them.
God is everywhere
- There are the family members where kids are stress busters many times. We also have friends who make us happy by just being there. But there is a time in life when you feel depressed by one of them only. You can’t share this extreme sadness with these people. But you need to get out of this suffocation. Here, you turn around towards God. You may not get answers that only minute but you certainly feel better. You feel wanted. And you get answers for sure.
- Sometimes you get entangled in different situations all at once. You are not able to coordinate and solve even one of them. You feel nervous. When you reach out to that one person in your life, he/she also behaves differently. You feel disconnected from them; from life. This is when God takes you closer to Him. He shows you that one window from where you can start breathing. And then it is peace everywhere.
- You love your spouse unconditionally. Then kids come and your love expands. This unconditional love increases between spouse and kids. Because love multiplies even if it is divided. Does a time come when their side of love becomes conditional? When that thin line between ego and self-respect starts fading? Nobody even realises but God. When you cry out your heart in front of Him, you feel light. You feel wanted.
- Performing the role of supermoms or super dad leave you exhausted sometimes. You feel like a machine that charges and gets back to work. You want to hold for a minute and just take a deep breath. You want to be on your mother’s lap and be caressed. This is when God invites you with open arms. Just sit quietly, detached from the world and talk to Him. There are signs of happiness around. You just need to be mindful.
Every life has its own experience. Has a time come in your life when you felt the presence of God within you or around you? Share your experiences and let the world see through your eyes.
