I constantly come across with some people with a question(s) like ” Where are you God? Are you there”? There are some people who pray and meditate on a daily basis and communicate and listen to God for answers. And some of them are grateful for what they have and are blessed. There are also many who just are in despair, sad, anguished, impatient, irritant, and unhappy for not getting “wants or needs” fulfilled.
Many of the spiritual belief systems do support prayers and meditations and to go within for answers. The scriptures in Bible says “Pray without ceasing”. Many Muslim devotees pray 5 times a day. Hindus and Buddhists meditate and pray. In Judaism, they pray at least 3 times a day or even more. There are several other belief systems that encourage meditation and silence. Even people that are non-religious spend quite time in awareness and in silence to quite their minds and seek answers from within and intuition.
The challenge lies in experiencing the requests made. After praying, do your feet move for action? Have you started talking and sharing with others what you desire? Have you prayed and meditated with faith and believed its already done for you? Your intuition must be aligned what you desire and want to experience. Do you pray and meditate only when you have problems with finances, debts, ill-health, faulty relationships, unhappiness, etc? Many people turn to God and plead for help when things are desperate and don’t know where to turn. Take it from me: You are not going to find answers to your problems at the worship places or at some places of lectures who will preach “instant feel good” remedies. The answers and solutions are within you and must be implemented by way of taking action.
God reveals answers and directions from within right where you are. God Is. God is All there is. God surrounds you. God is within you. There is something greater than we are, which sustains our lives, and that is infinite and unseen, some would call God, Lord, Almighty, Jesus Christ, Savior, Force, Energy, etc. In your self-awareness you will be noticing a “gut” feeling or “intuition” speaking from within to take action. The answer you seek is revealed. Believe and trust it. Ask, and it will be given to you. We all have a free will and choices to make in our lives. Make your choices wisely to experience joy, love, happiness, peace, harmony, abundance, prosperity, secured feeling, inner contentment and a sense of well-being.
