Chat with God

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

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 cant find free time. Life has become hectic.It's
rush hour all the time.

GOD : Sure. Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets
you results. Activity consumes time. Productivity frees it.

Me: I understand. But I still cant 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 uncertainty?

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 not

Me: You mean to say such experience is useful?

GOD : Yes. In every terms, 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 cant 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

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 without fear.

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 .
