GOD and ME
God: Hello. Did
you call me?
Me: Called you?
No… Who is this?
God: 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
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
Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you results. Activity consumes
time. Productivity frees it.
understand. But I still can’t figure out. By the way, I was not expecting YOU
to buzz me on instant messaging chat.
God: Well I
wanted to resolve you! Fight for time, by giving you some clarity. In this net
era, I wanted to reach you through the medium you are comfortable with.
Me: Tell me,
why has life become complicated now?
analyzing life. Just live it. Analysis is what makes it complicated.
Me: why are we
then constantly unhappy?
God: Your today
is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday. You are worrying because you
are analyzing. 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?
Uncertainty is inevitable, but worrying is optional.
Me: But then,
there is so much pain due to uncertainty. .
God: Pain is
inevitable able, but suffering is optional.
suffering is optional, why do good people always suffer?
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

why should we go through such tests? Why can’t we be free from problems?

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 are heading…
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
not succeeding fast seems to hurt more than moving in the right direction. What
should I do?
God: 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?

your blessing, not what you are missing.
surprises you about people?
God: 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.
God: Well. Keep
the faith and drop the fear. Don’t believe your doubts 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. "Life is not measured by the number of
breaths we take but by the moments that took our breath away!
