Random Musings- Part 18- Does God exist? I dont see Her.
Many people, especially the atheists say- “Where is God? I don’t See her. I don’t hear her. Then how Can I believe that God exist?”
My answer to them is-
Let’s assume that She, the Universal Mother comes in front of you, in flesh and blood and talks to you and says that she is The Mother. Would you believe her?Then you would say-“Hey, this is no God. She is just human like us with flesh and blood. How can she be God when she looks just like us and talks just like us?”.
The gist is, first you expect God to come to you in flesh and blood in order for you believe in God; You want God to ‘become’ Human and reveal herself to you. But, when the Mother does the same, she manifests in a Physical Form that you can see and hear, you cannot accept her because, she is Human, she is ‘no longer God’. In other words, you expect God to be Mundane as well as Transcendent but will not accept her in any of those aspects even if She reveals Herself.
The point I am making is that, To know God, to feel God, to see God, you must have Faith in Her. Simple faith will not do. You must have deep love, a burning desire to see Her. This feelings of deep Love/Parama-Prema is called as Bhakti. When you cry out for the Divine Mother, when you exhibit burning desire for her, only then will you be able to catch her, get hold of her.
Then, she will either lift you into her laps, remove all your weakness and grant you divine vision to look at her blissful eyes; Or she will Herself come down to your level. She will reveal you the way you are capable of understand her. She may come as a mother, as a child ,as a friend or even as your wife. The only Key is, “Bhakti”.
Unless and Until you do not develop love and surrendering you will not See her, She will not reveal herself. It’s so because, until there is no Belief inside you about her, you would never accept her, even if she were to stand in front of you. The doubt and disbelief is the product of delusion that was created by Mother Herself. This is all her play. She gives her children various toys. As long as child is happy his toys, mother remains engaged in her other works. But the moment a child throws away his toys and cries for his Mother, she will immediately come, She has to come. She has no other choice but to come to her crying Child.
So, if you desire God, then first develop the conviction that God exist. Then, develop Conviction that he is the one who is guiding you and making everything happen. Then develop intense love and surrendering. And finally a deep burning desire to experience her. The moment you will cry out to her. She will come. She has no other choice but to come to you.
