A man in his dream talks to God,
About trivial issues, concerns in his life,
His achievements, his joys, his good deeds,
His hope with every dawn, his plans with every dusk,
and in his dreams he would meet God at a particular venue,
And the venue was a beautiful seashore with the calm water reflecting moonlight
And every morning he would wake up with a new thought to begin his day with
But our lives are not meant to be a flat straight line,
Like waves highs and lows are an integral part that very much defines our lives
While this man would talk to God every night near the sea shore he would see another pair of footsteps besides him along with his
But then the time of test arrived, he had a lot of problems, set backs and negativity surrounding him
And then in his dreams he spoke to God like always, but then now he couldn’t see the other pair of footsteps besides him
For a few days he was wondering and then voiced out his opinion to God saying
“Dear God, when I was happy, everything was good in my life, you were there besides me
But now that I am in torment, in the saddest situation of life, you are not there with me!
God replied:” I walked besides you when you were happy and everything in your life was going good,
But when you were going through the testing times, I wasn’t walking besides you, but I was carrying you in my arms, when your feet was bleeding, I was there to take care of your pain”
Contemplating on this thought, I was wondering, isnt it so very easy to give up or curse the situation and blame every thing around us? And the very common question that we throw at God is “Why the hell Me?”…..Humans that we are, its very difficult to see through the worst and the most pressing times.
The philosophy I live by is “Everything in life happens for a reason, we are the most loved creation of God, and how can he ever ever leave us alone, and its the faith that one should dwell on to have a blissful life”.
