One guy had a chat with GOD.
God : Hello. You called me.
Me : Called you? No, who is this?
God : This is God. I heard your prayers. So, I thought I would chat with
Me : Sure, I pray. Just makes me feel good. Actually, I am busy now. In
the midst of something you know.
God : What are you busy with? 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 : But I still can't figure it out. By the way, I was not expecting
YOU to buzz me on instant messaging chat.
God : Well, I wanted to help you resolve your fight for time by giving
you some clarity. I wanted to reach you through the medium you are
Me : Tell me, why has life become so complicated?
God : Stop analyzing life. Just live it. Analysis is what makes it
Me : Why are we then constantly unhappy?
God : Your today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday. You
are worrying because the act of worrying has become a 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 : Diamonds cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be
purified without fire. Good people go through trials. With that
experience their life becomes better, not bitter.
Me : You mean to say such experience is useful?
God : Yes. Experience is a hard teacher, though. 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 Purposeful Roadblocks Offering Beneficial Lessons to
Enhance Mental Strength. 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
God : If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. Look
inside. 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
God : Success is relative, quantified by others. Satisfaction is
absolute, quantified by you. Knowing the road ahead is more satisfying
than knowing you rode ahead.
Me : Sometimes I ask, who am I, why am I here? I don't know the answers.
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 : Sometimes 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'll try to be less fearful.
God : Keep the faith and drop the fear. Life is a mystery to solve, not
a problem to resolve. Life is wonderful if you know how to live!
Me : Please keep blessing all of us!
