My Journey to look for God...
Journey to look for God.......
What troubled me most of time,
why some die of hunger?
Why some have more than need?
Why some happy and why some sad?
Why so much prejudice in this world?
Witnessing these cringed my heart,
Saddened soul wept inside,
Blaming God for all these mess,
Then one day I read a quote,
'God' answered to asked by man -
("I gave you life and needs for life,")
My liability ends, Now it’s you to handle,
("What you sow so you reap")
("Sowing seed of toxic 'Yew cone' fruit,
Can't expect apple from that")
Look cruel but is fact,
Worldly affair is so sad,
Drove me search for God...
Here and there on the earth and sky,
who is god, what is God, where is god...
Then Read Bible, Quran,
Granth, Veda and Torah,
have same wordings praising God,
Inscription lines to Do this, don't that,
Written by sages were meant -
"Live and let live in peace,"
But did not find so called 'God'
Moved forth to look in temple,
church and Mosque;
It's the same as usual chanted scriptures,
Some pray idols or some portrait,
All they uttered there is heaven there is hell,
But nobody told where is 'God'
Disappointed tired of all these complexity,
Looked for guidance from sages and saints,
They too said -
"we too are in search of God,
When we find we tell you all,
But in the meantime read all holy books,
May be you find some clue to what you want,
First wasn't clear, scratching my mind,
A few words and sentences in memory,
Gave clear cut of evidence,
The religious scriptures and temple,
Weren't the map or guide to reach God,
But were to guide directions,
to clean your heart,
lustrate your soul, Turn-on mind,
when you are pure and clean,
You are spiritual soul,
you aren't less than God,
"God is inside you, explore it"
You don't need to strive,
looking for God,
Temple and scriptures are mirrors,
Reflecting your outer persona,
And what you are inside you,
"Knowing yourself is spirituality"
"Behaving appropriately is ritual"
Journey in search of God,
Ended when I looked inside me...
