Chatting With The Boss

Originally posted 13 November 2006

For those days....that we just sit and ponder....a bit ofinspiration. ...sent your way !!!My chat with GOD on Yahoo Msgr...the times...they sure are changing!!!God: Hello. Did you call me?searchin4u : Called you? No, who is this ?God: This is GOD. I heard your prayers. So I thought I will chat.searchin4u: I do pray. Just makes me feel good. I am actually busynow. I am in the midst of something.God: What are you busy at? Ants are busy toosearchin4u : Don't know. But I can't find free time. Life has becomehectic. It's rush hour all the time.God: Sure. Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you results.Activity consumes time. Productivity frees it.searchin4u: I understand. But I still can't figure out. By the way, Iwas not expecting YOU to buzz me on instant messaging chat.God: Well I wanted to resolve your fight for time, by giving you someclarity. In this net era, I wanted to reach you through the medium youare comfortable with.searchin4u : Tell me, why has life become complicated now?God: Stop analyzing life. Just live it. Analysis is what makes itcomplicated.searchin4u: Why are we then constantly unhappy?God: Your today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday. Youare worrying because you are analyzing. Worrying has become yourhabit. That's why you are not happy.searchin4u : But how can we not worry when there is so much uncertainty?God: Uncertainty is inevitable, but worrying is optional.searchin4u : But then, there is so much pain due to uncertainty.God: Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional.searchin4u : If suffering is optional, why do good people always suffer?God: Diamonds cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot bepurified without fire. Good people go through trials, but don'tsuffer. With that experience their life becomes better not bitter.searchin4u : You mean to say such experience is useful?God: Yes. In every term, Experience is a hard teacher. She gives thetest first and the lessons afterwards.searchin4u: But still, why should we go through such tests? Why can'twe be free from problems?God: Problems are "Purposeful Roadblocks Offering Beneficial Lessonsto Enhance Mental Strength". Inner strength comes from struggle andendurance, not when you are free from problems.searchin4u : Frankly in the midst of so many problems, we don't knowwhere we are heading.God: If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. Lookinside. Looking outside, you dream. Looking inside, you awaken. Eyesprovide sight. Heart provides insight.searchin4u : Sometimes not succeeding fast seems to hurt more thanmoving in the right direction. What should I do?God: Success is a measure as decided by others. Satisfaction is ameasure as decided by you. Knowing the road ahead is more satisfyingthan knowing you rode ahead. You work with the compass. Let otherswork with the clock. !searchin4u : In tough times, how do you stay motivated?God: Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you haveto go. Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.searchin4u : What surprises you about people?God: When they suffer they ask, "why me?" When they prosper, theynever ask "Why me". Everyone wishes to have truth on their side, butfew want to be on the side of the truth.searchin4u : Sometimes I ask, who am I, why am I here. I can't get theanswer.God: Seek not to find who you are, but to determine who you want tobe. Stop looking for a purpose as to why you are here. Create it. Lifeis not a process of discovery but a process of creation.searchin4u : How can I get the best out of life?!God: Face your past without regret. Handle your present withconfidence. Prepare for the future without fear.searchin4u: One last question. Sometimes I feel my prayers are notanswered.God: There are no unanswered prayers. At times the answer is NO.searchin4u : Thank you for this wonderful chat. I am so happy to startthe day with a new sense of inspiration.God: Well, Keep the faith and drop the fear. Don't believe your doubtsand doubt your beliefs.Life is a mystery to solve not a problem to resolve. Trust me. Life iswonderful if you know how to live. Best wishes for a good day.Warmest Regards ---GOD
