A lovely morning, full of radiance & a small kid prompted me to give a thought, a feeling which had hid in me due to the social outlook to believe in GOD, Join hands & Pray.. A thought which once I completely ignored believing only in Good Deeds, wishing & doing something which bring smiles to others..Once again it had re-kindled these thoughts..
Why do we go to temple & pray to statues? A small story:
“Once Father & Son went to a temple & suddenly the son shouted to his Dad fearing of something.. Well Fear in temple? Highly absurd..But son again shouted raging his Dad since he was disturbing the serene atmosphere of the temple..
Slowly the Kid came closer to his Dad & buzzed in his ear..Run Dad, these lions on the pillars will eat us …Run Dad run..
Astonished..He tried pacifying his son saying, Child these are just statues, made of sheer stones, they don’t have life in them, and how the hell can they harm us? Be relaxed & join your hands in front of God!
Highly puzzled, child couldn’t stop asking..Dad if these Lion statues won’t harm us, being of stone & with no lives, how could these statues of God give us blessings & shower us with the goodies we/so many people ask for every second..Every minute.. Somewhere somebody is ill asking for quick recovery, somebody wants to earn money ,some wants kids in lives ,some want to marry their loves…So many ..so many ,how does these Godly statues listen & fulfill them?
Completely speechless on hearing his Child’s question & since then he has started searching for GOD in Humans instead of Statues..He responded to child..I’ve found Humanity today, thank you :)”
So true isn’t it? Temple actually gives peace of mind, but let’s start believing in Humanity & find God in our Parents, who lived all their life for us, who sacrificed their happiness to see smiles on our faces, Hold the trembling hands to give support..Let’s inspire our souls to work selflessly towards humans, animals..Let’s all pledge to give happiness at least to one soul a day..& then see the peace, the harmony in our own life! See the shining smiles, when you see your deed made someone laugh, made someone rise above the bar, made someone live life once again!
Such a fantastico message & that too by a small innocent kid..We usually fail to sense that even people smaller than us & even kids can be a great source of inspiration & learning to us. Their innocence has no boundaries, their love has no biasness, and they would even be pleased to see kid in the arms of tramp, as they know only language of love.
Let’s try & imitate kids, love every one unbiased!
Be Good, Do Good & Goodness will automatically fall in your Laps!
