God Hello. Did you call me?
Me Called you? No.
Who is this?
God This is GOD.
I heard your prayers.
So I thought I will chat.
Me I do pray.
Just makes me feel good.
I am actually busy now.
I am in the midst of something.
God What are you busy at?
Ants are busy too.
Me Don’t know, but I can’t find free time.
Life has become like rush hour all the time.
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 would call.
God Well, I wanted to resolve your fight for time.
Give you some clarity.
Me Tell me, why has life become complicated now ?
God Stop analyzing life. Just lives it.
Analysis is what makes it complicated.
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 Diamonds 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,
Me You mean to say such experience is useful ?
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
L essons to
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 heading…
God If you look outside you will not know where you are heading.
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 you stay motivated ?
God Always look at how far you have come rather
than how far you have to go.
Always count your blessings,
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.
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 New Day
with a new sense of inspiration.
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.
Life is wonderful if you know how to live.
