Surrounded with problems
And there is nowhere to go,
When your heart sinks
And you are feeling very low,
Then God Almighty is the only ray of hope.
Speak to Him in your prayers,
And you will see that He listens and responds to you!
When a person is stick in a traffic jam, when a student is giving his exams, when someone is waiting outside the doctor’s chamber praying for his loved one to get well soon, when a patient is about to be taken into the operation theatre to be operated,
Then whom are they remembering from the depth of their heart..? Yes! They are remembering God. We must have often seen or heard the following:-
- Small children say L.K (Lord Krishna), L.G (Lord Ganesha) is my best friend.
- A housewife prays to god every day.
- A doctor says – “I treat He cures”.
- A businessman keeps a God’s idol at his work place.
We often speak these words – “Thank you God, It is the mercy of the Lord, Oh God! Help me”
This clearly shows that we all have an ancient and a very strong relationship with God. But this relationship with God needs to be strengthened as we do not recognize it or pay attention to it.
‘When a child is in the mother’s womb, his hands and feet are folded and he prays to God that this time when he comes to the earth plane, he will not forget God. But as soon as he takes birth, he forgets his promise’.
– From Shrimad Bhagwat
When in his lifetime, the soul calls upon the Lord, then God comes to him in the form of Satguru. Satguru reminds, establishes and strengthens our bond with the Almighty. This is the only way to achieve everlasting happiness and to be at peace with ourselves.
Satguru guides us on ways to strengthen our bond with God:-
- Satguru’s divine company
- Chanting God’s name
- Reading holy books & scriptures
- Reading life histories of devotees or bhakts
- Praying to the Lord
- Being close to nature is being close to God.
Our every breath is a message from God that ‘I care for you, I love you’.
Our every heart beat should be a response to God that ‘Yes! I love you too’.
