Isn't It Strange

by Sri Baldev Prasad

Here is something to ponder about:

Isn't it strange how Rs. 20/=
seems like such a large amount when
you donate it to temple, but
such a small amount
when you go shopping?

Isn't it strange how 2 hours
seem so long when
you're at place of worship, and how
short they seem when you're
watching a good movie?

Isn't it strange that you can't
find a word to say when
you're praying,
but you have no trouble
thinking what to talk about
with a friend?

Isn't it strange how difficult
and boring it is to read
one chapter of
the Bible/ Quran / Gita, but how easy
it is to read 100 pages of
a popular novel?

Isn't it strange how everyone
wants front-row-tickets
to concerts or
games, but they do whatever
is possible to sit at the last
row in a holy place?

Isn't it strange how we need to
know about an event for
temple 2-3
weeks before the day so we can
include it in our agenda, but we can
adjust it for other events in
the last minute?

Isn't it strange how difficult it
is to learn a fact about
God to share it
with others, but how easy
it is to learn, understand,
extend and repeat gossip?

Isn't it strange how we
believe everything
that magazines and newspapers
say, but we question the words in the
Bible and other holy books?

Isn't it strange how everyone
wants a place in
heaven, but they don't want
to believe, do, or say anything
to get there?

Isn't it strange how we send
jokes in e-mails
and they are forwarded
right away,
but when we are going to send
messages about God, we think
about it twice before we share
it with others?

IT'S STRANGE ISN'T IT?

"Each of us are angels with only one wing.
And we can only fly while embracing each other."

Sharing and Caring endures human life.

Universality of Love - Love in All Religions
The idea of the importance of love finds agreement among all of the large, popular religions of the world. Here is a sampling.

You Cannot Reason with God
The Lord will take away all human reasoning. From the human standpoint it may seem impossible, but the Lord wants to show us the distinction between human reasoning and true faith, true saving faith, which is the gift of God.

Giving Thanks and Spiritual Healing
God calls us not as we should be but as we are. Each of us has our own unique flaws. If we will allow it, the Lord will use our flaws to bring beauty and grace in service of God and humanity. In God's great economy, nothing goes to waste.
