Don’t worry, it’s not a spiritual post. It’s my normal genuine post or experience I am sharing with you all. And I want to ask you that have you met GOD in your life? Ever ?
Long back, I was waiting for a train, on a very crowded station of Mumbai, that’s Dadar.
The train arrived with a huge crowd and I couldn’t get into it even after trying very hard. Finally, I left the train.
I waited for another train but the same thing happened. I could not get into it the next crowded train during that peak office hour.
This repeated for almost 4-5 trains but I failed at every attempt, and I was still fighting hard to just get into it.
I was totally frustrated, tired, fed up and almost about to cry. As soon as there was an announcement of the next train, with teary eyes I prayed GOD, ‘please GOD, please give me more strength to get into the next train, I want it at any cost.
I request you..please please please.’.
When the train was visible I was just hoping that somebody should literally push me into the train.
I held my purse tightly, and was ready again to be a part of that routine race of getting into the packed train.
But to my surprise, the train that arrived was totally empty and I easily got into it, I was so shocked to see that train with very few ladies.
I felt that the train was sent by GOD just for me. Of Course that’s not something supernatural, but at that moment you can’t do anything but just thank him for whatever he had done ‘just’ for you.
You feel that whatever you experienced was a miracle.
I want to ask you, have you experienced it by any chance?
Have you met God in your life?
Since childhood, we have been told that GOD exists everywhere. Isn’t it ? Being a child ,I used to ask my parents, is GOD really present in this room?
They would say ‘yes’. Then I would go to the kitchen , is he present in the kitchen? they would say ‘yes’.
Then I would go to the bedroom or bathroom, is he present here also? they would say ‘yes’, he is everywhere.
I would not believe. Why is he not visible to me then? I want to see him, I used to cry.
My father then would explain in a teaching tone, “can you see air? No. But it exists, right? Just like that, GOD also exists”.
This was the way I was nurtured and started believing that wherever I go, GOD will always be there to protect me.
Father had a lot of impact on me. I had no other option but to believe that my parents are not my actual parents but just the trusties of GOD, who is my real mother or father.
Ever since my birth, my father used to tell me that I am a gift to them from GOD.
As a child, I used to love the fact that I was the favorite child of GOD and he particularly selected me to send to my lovely parents.
It sounds really funny at this moment, but it was the reality for me when I was a kid.
Anyways, I just wanted to tell you that it’s all in our mind, to believe or not. If we get connected to something psychologically, we start believing it blindly.
If someone is afraid of ghosts, he or she would never stay alone, they feel ghost’s presence in empty corridors, on empty stairs or in dark; as their mind suggests the ghosts are present there only, even though others don’t even believe in ghosts. The same thing applies for our belief in GOD.
Defining “GOD” is the case of limitless narratives around multiple definitions. “What kind of GOD you are talking about?” this could be another question as if you can pick and choose from the menu.
Now we all are different and have different vision and perception, so maybe there would be an argument on this topic by those who does not believe in GOD.
But again I would say, ‘I can’t prove it if there is a God, but can you prove there is no GOD?”’
One day, I was traveling on a crowded bus of Pune. One guy was staring at me badly. It was a frightening moment for me in those days. (Now I have the guts to stare back at him with anger but not then).
Meanwhile the person sitting next to me got up from the seat to get down for his stop and the guy who was looking at me was about to sit at that place.
I don’t know what could be the reason behind my fear, as he could not have done anything to me at that time in a crowded bus.
Even though I was looking outside the window, from the side view of my eye, I could feel whatever was happening there.
I was not able to concentrate on my journey even after sitting at the window side.
Now the moment that guy made an effort to come and sit next to me,suddenly a voice came from backside ,”wait I am sitting there”.
I looked back ; one old fat lady with silver hairs, walking stick in one hand, purse in other hand , taking the support of the rod came near my seat ; she handed over her purse to me and slowly sat next to me.
Oh GOD!!… trust me. She was none other than GOD in a woman avatar for me then. I just closed my eyes and thanked him.
I just ignored where that guy went, but enjoy my further journey with that granny.
It seems a very small thing now, but I felt someone is there to listen to my voice.
I have many such experiences where I realized that GOD exists. And believe me, whoever GOD you believe in, is there surrounding you, as he is in your mind only.
In my experience, I feel that I had met him so many times. I have experienced miracles happening in my life because of his presence.
I can’t express that in words but I know that’s all in my mind, but I believe it’s GOD.
He takes any and many forms, he is the power which strengthen us from within.
As I am an engineering student, and believe in science, I sometimes get suspicious whether Lord Ganesha, Shiva, Devi, Sai, Dattatreaya and other GODs does really exist ?
But even if the answer is ‘NO’, we can’t deny the presence of the supreme power who has created all the universe.
I am not talking about the religious GOD which everyone of us follow or believe in, but something beyond all these.
Just a simple example, within the human body, we find massive amounts of information.
When we look at the human eye, we see a system so incredibly complicated that it could never come about by chance.
When scientists look into the human body, they see a complex yet harmonious system of machinery.
The nature around us is so wonderful. Then who is responsible for all this magic? We are too busy in our life that we are detached from that magic of GOD i.e. nature. We have to be consciously reconnect with nature!
That creator himself comes to meet us anytime, anywhere, whenever and wherever we remember him or need him in form of our GOD.
We can not prove him though.
But remember ‘absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.’ Right?
Tell me, have you met GOD by any chance?
