Please tell me why should one believe in God? I am frustrated as nothing seems to work out for me, either my material life or my spiritual life. Please guide me - I am lost at the moment!!
Reply: Nobody wants you to believe in God. What difference does it make to God whether you believe in Him or Her or That or not!?
Look at the Sun, it gives you love and light and sustains you and the whole of existence. Did you ever hear the sun whispering in your ears, “Hey! You have not saluted me and so no love, no light for you today?” Whether you express your gratitude and reverence to the sun or not the sun always floods you with light and love and sustains you through the vagaries of life. So also is God. He never waits for your salutations but keeps you flooded with innumerable gifts every moment of your life. Of course, the more you open your eye of awareness and try to see in the midst of darkenss the flickers of Light that are always there, your eye will show you, for What you want to see, you see. Like your own mother, the Divine loves you irrespective of whether you reciprocate with gratitude or not.
Start recognizing the grace without any expectation of magic, and just do what you do with a heart of love and gratitude, for the divine principle that works all the miracles in the world is Love and Gratitude.
