Chatting with God

Imagine my amazement this morning when GOD Started Chatting With Me:

God: Hello. Did you call me?

Me: Call you? No, who is this?
God: This is GOD. I heard your prayers. So I thought I would chat.

Me: I am actually busy now. I am in the midst of something.
God: What are you busy at?

Me: Don't know. But I can't find free time even to pray anymore. Life has
become hectic. It's rush hour all the time.
God: Sure. Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you results.
Activity consumes time. Productivity frees it.

Me: I 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 your 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?
God: Stop analyzing life. Just live it. Analysis is what makes it

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?
God: Uncertainty is inevitable, but worrying is optional.

Me: But then, there is so much pain due to uncertainty.
God: Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.

Me: If suffering is optional, why do good people always suffer?
God: Diamond 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 becomes 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 lessons afterwards.

Me: But still, why should we go through such tests? Why can't we be free
from problems?
God: PROBLEMS are Purposeful Roadblocks Offering Beneficial Lessons to
Enhance Mental 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
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 provides insight.

Me: Sometimes 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 I stay motivated?
God: Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to
go. Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.

Me: What 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. I am so happy to start the day with a
new sense of inspiration.
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.
