Where is God and has anyone seen him or felt him? We can ask this question many times but has somebody found an answer for that. Everyone one of us sometime or the other has asked in desperation or in need that Where are you God? People can say that there are several mysteries in this world and universe but the biggest mystery is God. People follow different Religions and when they are bored with it then they find the alternative with spirituality or they start following some God men or some guru or Baba. What I haven’t understood till now is that what is worse, whether its worshipping someone that you have never seen or if its worshipping some Guru or Baba who is still alive.
People say that God is the creator of this universe and he is responsible for everything that happens in this world. Responsible in itself is a word of the accused and not of believer. In some Religions the belief is so strong and unparallel that if someone questions the existence of God, then it is considered blasphemous. What is the role of religion in finding God? We all will agree on one thing that every religion has a defined way and some selected or sacred texts, so in way it is a system. If religion is a system which means like every other system it is confined within some boundaries . If people say religion is a way or a path of finding God then does that mean like Religion is finite and limited does God has its boundaries and is God confined to a particular system or Religion. On this argument some intellectuals will say that God is not confined to a Religion, God is a kind of energy or power which is universal in nature and God is infinite. If God is infinite then why God has to be worshipped, Followed or searched through a confined system.
If God is universal, infinite and omnipresent in its visibility then why it is such a mystery to find him and feel him. Why is it so difficult to feel a power which is everywhere and is so strong in its presence. Have we lost the connection to this immense power because we were so busy in getting powerful and secure. The other question is why do we only remember God in adversity?Is God like a medicine that should only be remembered when we are not well or God is like nutrition that it should be in constant remembrance to remain healthy.
People always complain that if God is there then why there are so many problems in this world, If God is there then why bad people like terrorist are killing people and playing God? This brings us to another question that Has God stopped playing God because Humans have started playing God? Is there a possibility that God is disappointed with its creation and has left us completely in disappointment. Can God act against free will? These are intriguing questions and it can take a lifetime of pursuit to find them and may be more.
There are basic three kind of theories about the existence of God. People who believe in Theism think that God created everything and sustains everything, while the people in Deism believe that God created everything but doesn’t interfere with the free will and things of the world. There is the third kind as well which is Pantheism and in this people believe God is the universe and Universe is God. The thing to understand here is that even if you are lucky enough then, Is God a tangible element or it can only be felt with faith and belief.
What if God never created human beings and he just created different forms of himself in everyone of us. What if God is a part of us, Is God the one that motivates us in our darkest and weakest moments and is it the same God that gives us the strength to keep going in all adversity. If you really want to feel God then you have to be really close and honest to yourself, God is neither within you and nor outside you or in religious places, God is your alter Ego that is your other self which always stands by your side and backs you. The only way to feel God and to Find God is to discover this alter Ego of your’s.
Off late Alter ego has developed a medical or rather psychological connotation but if you just go by the literal meaning it just means your other self. What if God is just your other self which is still undiscovered you might call it your inner self or unity, but God is a part of you.
The more you will ignore this alter ego the harder it would be to connect to this infinite power. You just need to have it as a part of your conscious that God is a part of you and in no time you will feel the presence of God in everything you do and will realise that everything that happens is a part of divine plan actually and Universe is not a system of random chaotic events . It’s high time that we introspect and discover the oneness, inner self or the alter ego within us and feel this amazing energy . GOD BLESS YOU!
