Take a quick break and go thro this... especially if you are BUSY.........., slightly lengthy but interesting read!
God: Hello. Did you call me?
Me: Called you? No. Who is this?
This is GOD
. I heard your prayers.
So I thought I will chat.
Me: I do pray. Just makes me feel good.
I am actually busy now. I am in the midst of something.
God: What are you busy at? Ants are busy too.
Me: Don't know. But I can't find free time.
Life has become hectic. It's rush hour all the time.
God: Sure. Activity gets you busy.. But productivity gets you results.
Activity consumes time. Productivity frees it.
Me: I understand. But I still can't figure out.
By the way, I was not expecting YOU to buzz me on instant
Well, I wanted to resolve your fight for time, by giving
you some clarity. In this net era, I wanted to reach you
through the medium that you are comfortable with.
Me: Tell me, why has life become complicated now?
God: Stop analysing life. Just live it. Analysis is what makes it complicated.
Me: Why are we then constantly unhappy?
Your today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday.
You are worrying because you are analysing.
Worrying has become your habit. That's why you are not happy.
Me: But how can we not worry when there is so much uncertainty?
God: Uncertainty is inevitable, but worrying is optional.
Me: But then, there is so much pain due to uncertainty.
God: Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.
Me: If suffering is optional, why do good people always suffer?
God: Diamond cannot be polished without friction.
Gold cannot be purified without fire.
Good people go through trials, but don't suffer.
With that experience their life become better, not bitter.
Me: You mean to say such experience is useful?
God: Yes. In every term, Experience is a hard teacher.
She gives the test first and the lessons afterwards.
Me: But still, why should we go through such tests?
Why can't we be free from problems?
God: Problems are:
Inner strength comes from struggle and endurance, not when
you are free from problems.
Me: Frankly in the midst of so many problems, we don't know
where we are heading.
If you look outside you will not know where you are heading;
Looking outside, you dream.
Looking inside, you awaken.
Eyes provide sight.
Heart provides insight.
Me: Sometimes not succeeding fast seems to hurt more than
moving in the right direction. What should I do?
Success is a measure as decided by others.
Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you.
Knowing the road ahead is more satisfying than knowing
you rode ahead.
You work with the compass.
Let others work with the clock.
Me: In tough times, how do you stay motivated?
Always look at how far you have come rather than how
far you have to go.
Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.
Me: What surprises you about people?
When they suffer they ask, "why me?"
When they prosper, they never ask "Why me?"
Everyone wishes to have truth on their side, but few want to
be on the side of the truth.
Me: Sometimes I ask, who am I, why am I here.
I can't get the answer.
God: Seek not to find who you are, but to determine who you want to be.
Stop looking for a purpose as to why you are here.
Create it. Life is not a process of discovery, but a process of creation.
Me: How can I get the best out of life?
God: Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence.
Prepare for the future without fear.
Me: One last question.
Sometimes I feel my prayers are not answered.
God: There are no unanswered prayers.
At times the answer is NO.
Me: Thank you for this wonderful chat.
I am so happy to start the New Day with a new sense of inspiration.
Well. Keep the faith and drop the fear.
Don't believe and doubt your beliefs.
Life is a mystery to solve, not a problem to resolve.
Trust me. Life is wonderful if you know how to live it....
