Then why can’t we see God?
Folks, before reading this article, you first need to read how it all started…else you’ll be confused – here is the link to the previous article – http://www.blogpyramid.com/world-is-bereft-of-the-divine-element.html
Read it…now the conversation continues…..
They: Then why can’t we see God?
Me: Have you ever looked directly at the sun … at let’s say 12 noon…unclouded sky?
Me: Why not?
They: Are you crazy? Why would we look….cannot – too much brightness….
Me: So you cannot look at the sun which is just a millionth part of the divine…and you want to see God?…who is the ‘splendor of the sun’ multiplied by some million more times…
They : Oh! Who told you that?
Me: Why? It is written in the Bhagvad Geeta – when Shri Krishna vouchsafed Arjuna with the divine eyes so that he could see Him in all his splendor – his Virat Roop….
They: Again all that is just written…..it is said that such stories were written by people – some rulers hired couple of good writers and made them write such stuff so that the commoners will remain fearful of the rulers…
Me: Oh! Really….so these huge temples and millions of devotees getting their desires fulfilled, this entire science of Astrology, the entire logic of karmas based on which the Astral chart of a person is mapped and even the genetic map for that matter – everything is predestined – based on your karmas….but according to you or whatever you learnt by reading some bloke’s version – everything is written by some twisted corrupted soul under the guidance of a tyrannical ruler!? …And we all are so dumb – since eons ….that we are blindly following religions and rituals ….because we fear ‘death’ by some foolish human ruler?
They: Well …everyone is afraid of death….and this World is huge – by citing an example of Lord Krishna..ok, for Hindus to agree is fine – but India is no super power…there are other religions too…
Me: Yeah…I know – like Christians – so? Lord Christ showed them the divine miracle of ‘Resurrection’ – what Shri Krishna mentioned in the Geeta – the immortality of the soul ie. soul never dies, cannot be cut through, fire cannot burn it etc. etc., Lord Christ showed it – proved it to his people – many people witnessed it…during Shri Krishna’s era, only 2 people witnessed the Virat roop – Arjuna and Sanjaya (the Blind King’s commentator), whereas during the time of Christ…many other miracles were also witnessed by people….
They: How do you know all this?…Things have been written down, twisted and turned by several administrators…suiting their own sweet purpose…how are we to believe in anything? It could all be just a lie……they were story tellers….in absence of entertainment, people heard those tales and the word got spread…that’s it!
Me: You mean the advertising skills – which was only ‘word of mouth’ – no newspapers, radios, televisions or internet of course – were so very effective that it withstood thousands of years…and here . ..in this current era, a single film Actor is unable to draw our attention in spite of being a super-duper-blockbuster Hero just the last decade….
They: No ….. film actors are not being talked about…..
Me: But you just said that they were story tellers – like Saint Valmiki was a good story teller I guess – according to you…he wrote this drama Ramayana and hired the actors to enact…and the commoners were so foolish that they accepted the Actor as some divine incarnation – and continued to follow the illusion for thousands of years – is that what you are trying to say?
They: Anyways…you will continue like this….maybe you have got some experience … in your illusions whatever – no point in discussing such things with you – even great scholars have failed in this – who are you or even me…..but as far as I am concerned – I have to see in order to believe…otherwise no one can convince me anything!
Me: I see, have you seen your great grand father?
They: Oh! please don’t start it off again – that is a very clichéd question…..no I have not seen my great grand father but that does not make any difference to me whatsoever.
Me: I see…but since you have not seen your own great grand father may also mean that he was never there – according to your logic….
They: Fine…you win okay? But I remain unconvinced.
So you see folks..the argument continues…….whoever has to understand…will understand! or should I say – whoever is destined to understand, will understand!
