When a man who is blind since his birth is asked to explain a colourful flower, what will he do? He will most probably explain his assumption about flowers that he has never seen, that he has never realized. He will merely play with his fantasy of imaginations. This is the situation with most of us when we talk about God. We claim that we are theists, but have we ever realized Him ourselves? Our knowledge of God is nothing, but, the borrowed belief from scriptures, religious institutions, families and societies. God is not our knowing, it is not the outcome of our own search, research and realization. And until, we have our own realization, we will keep groping in dark like that blind man. Our religious and spiritual exercises, in most of the cases, are nothing, it’s merely verbosity, juggleries of words, while the God is the ultimate speaking silence. The right spiritual journey is possible only when you go beyond the domain of words and your mind, but present day spirituality is nothing, it is forced blaring beliefs in terms of beautiful assurance. If you analyze your beliefs carefully in depth, you will get astonished to know that how your beliefs are contradictory to each other. Let’s go though the beliefs of a common so-called theist. A common man has following beliefs:
1. The God is a causeless cause of this universe; means, God has created the universe and everything existing in this universe.
2. God regulates and sustains this universe.
3. God controls everything, all developments and movements in this universe. Without his wish and mercy nothing can take place.
4. God is very kind, just and impartial to all.
If this universe was created by an external agency that we call God and who was or is very intelligent, super-conscious, omnipotent with unlimited powers, then why our universe is going through a process of evolution or devolution? Whatever the ultimate final design God had in mind, He should have made the universe that way only forever. Since we are undergoing a process of change / evolution, which suggests that the process of creation of the vast universe has been because of the gradual interactions of several unconscious fields and consciousness developed during the course of evolution. Super-consciousness is the ultimate end of the evolution. Had this existence been the result of a super conscious process or entity, we would not need to undergo through a process of evolution. If everything came into existence because of God, a divine, pious and super conscious entity, then from where evils, the negative thought came into being. If God is omnipotent, he controls everything, then, this world should have been a paradise. The so-called theists consider that everything takes place because of God, nothing can happen without his mercy or will. If they really subscribe to this view, then, they should be very satisfied beings without any complain, because if everything happens with the plan and desire of God, then whatever is happening in the life of a theist, that also is there because of his plan, then a theist should not wish for the things to happen in other way than happening as presently. But, if you see a common man, the so-called theist, he or she is full of thought and view as how things should happen. He is full of suggestion to God. Their non-acceptance of the things as they are in their lives, suggests that deep down in their being they don’t subscribe to the view what they seem to believe at the outer surface of their being.
If you believe that God is omnipotent, very just and kind to all, then why different people have different destiny, different talents and different physical and mental strength? So many people die in various natural disasters like Tsunami, earthquake, flood, storm etc. then also how can you sustain the belief that all these things are being governed, controlled and regulated by a super-conscious entity called God. Most of the so called theists try to escape this question, but tell me how your escapism can lead you to the ultimate eternal truth? You may answer this question in any way to support your believe, but deep down, this question remains alive in your being, isn’t it? All these things suggest that our understanding of God and this existence is immature. What exactly is God, how this existence came into being, where the whole universe is proceeding to, to get answer for all these, please read my book “Quantum Jump into God”.
Right now my concern for this writing is not to go into a philosophic deliberation of God, but my purpose is to free you from the duality in your approach. You wish to enjoy money, sex and all material and secular pleasure inside your heart, but on the surface of your being, in your mind you seem to be full of condemnation of all these things. I just wish to tell you that even through enjoying all these you can have a grand journey towards that vast divine and eternal blissful phenomenon called God. In this universe whatever exists, they have some positive purposes, no matter it is the craving for sex and money, or it is the negative approaches like hatred, violence, greediness, falsehood, ego etc., they all have some positive purposes, otherwise they would not have existed in this universe. You can reach to the Godly state even proceeding through negative polarity. You just need to have a deep understanding and to develop this understanding you need to go through some experiments. If you do these experiments with the totality in your approach, you will reach to a totally new understanding, a totally different realization. Please do following experiments to explore your deeper self-
1. Close your room; sit alone comfortably in a comfortable posture.
Gently close your eyes. Think about a person whom you hate most, abuse that person as intensely as you can or express your hatred towards this person as intensely as you can. Keep abusing, keep beating him in your imagination, and utter the ugliest words against this person as ugliest as you can. Do these things in totality without letting your mind interrupt you. Do it as intensely as you can. During this whole process your eyes should remain closed. Do it continuously for at least ten minutes, then stop and now watch yourself. Your eyes should remain closed in the whole process. Watch yourself constantly for five minutes. Just watch, don’t think and don’t interpret. Now after five minutes think again of that person whom you abused in the first phase. Can you see any negativity now in your being towards this person? You will be amazed to see that now you don’t have any negativity towards this person. If you have gone through this process of catharsis intensely with the totality in your approach and without letting your mind interrupt you, you will be amazed to see the nascent positivism in you.
2. Whenever you come across a beautiful girl or a handsome boy and you feel sensually attracted towards her or him, go and ask politely her or him if you can touch her or his fingers and if she or he allows you, touch her or him gently with your closed and watch the sensation of the touch. Don’t do anything, just be in that state. After five to ten minutes see the changes in your inner being. Do you still have sensuality in your being or that girl or boy appears divine to you?
If you feel divinity in her or him, than how sex can be a sin. Does it not indicate that sex also can be a doorway to the kingdom of God? In fact this proves that everything that exists in this existence can lead you towards God. You just need super consciousness and super intelligence towards everything. When you exist in highest possible state of super consciousness, that is a Godly state and any can reach there if one has dedication and a strong passion. So the approach of condemnation towards materialism is a stupidity. You have to take just one care that you should be the master and money should exist for you rather than you existing for money.
