A step forward....

The muddy paths of life, some slippery, some steady and some dried to the extend that it becomes difficult to walk on them. Today when I stopped at the red light, I heard a voice coming out of a nearby church..."take a step towards God and he'll take ten steps towards you". True, God in all his avatars .....kindness , goodness, spirituality.....takes a step forward and you feel smeared with the love bestowed by God. But as is our nature, we tend to run away, caught in the wordly web, we move away from certain realities of life.We can't really blame ourselves for that, sometimes its important to form a space of ones own, where we can be ourselves, be it positive , negative or an amalgam of both, its just we and our raw self....but then a time comes when imperfection takes a toll ...we start running again.... in search of another abode, until we can run no more. Life makes us realise that there are no short cuts to happiness, it comes through certain channels...instead of running away we need to take a step forward and we'll see it take several steps towards us.

Hi :)

Greetings and good afternoon!

Very inspiring post with full of wisdom. The contents are thought provoking.

William Wordsworth believes that we have come from God and we have to return to God one day. Our stay on this earth is only temporary. When we are children we have the divine spark in us but as we grow older, mother earth tempts us with so many things that we lose that spark.

Looked at in another perspective God has given us commonsense and the freedom of choice. We invariably take the easy way out by choosing easy things in life which makes us comfortable and provides sensual pleasure. So we go astray from God. Whatever we do, God loves us and he is with us and never deserts us under any circumstances both good and bad. It is well known that material comforts and sensual pleasures will not give us lasting satisfaction and happiness. In fact we are always in a turmoil and never at peace.

As you know that Gauthama Buddha gave up his kingdom and family to search for truth. He had every thing he wanted in his kingdom but nothing made him happy.

Your post made my idle brain think.
Many thanks for sharing.

Have a wonderful day, my friend :)
Joseph
