What is your relationship with God? Is it of fear or love? This question is worth exploring. It will be highly beneficial to ponder.
We can easily answer the relationship question if we are asked about our son/daughter/parent/friend or for that matter, anyone who is physically part of our life. But there is lot ambiguity about God. What I see around me is mostly fear of God.
I think this stems from the way we perceive God. We put Him on a pedestal, think of Him in some higher realms; untouched, unattainable, distant but powerful. Powerful enough to affect our lives at will. That makes things scary. He can cause death, accidents, diseases, calamities. This belief instills fears in our hearts.
We start believing that keeping God happy is of utmost importance. So we try everything under the sun which we believe in or are capable of. But it doesn’t work. We still keep getting our share of calamities, diseases and death. So how do we love the unseen whose actions are unpredictable? How do we fall in love with someone we fear?
Well, the answer lies in changing of our mindset. A shift in our way of thinking/ observing. THINK DIFFERENTLY, OBSERVE MINUTELY, EXPLORE NEW POSSIBILITIES.
I leave you with these thoughts and questions. Ponder, explore. I will return soon with my next blog on God.
