Why me?

When bad happens, we are frustrated, sad, helpless and alone. We question, "Why does bad thing happen only to ME?"

When good happens, we are happy and never question, "Why mE?"

A beautiful forward by my friend, when I too questioned, "Why me?" :)


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 hectic. It's
rush hour all the time.


God: Sure. 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 to buzz me on instant messaging chat.


God: Well, I wanted to resolve your fight for time, by giving you some
clarity. In this net era, I wanted to reach you through the medium you are
comfortable with.


Me: Tell me, why has life become complicated now?


God: Stop analysing 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 analysing. 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: Diamond 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 become better, not bitter.


Me: You mean to say such experience is useful?


God: Yes. 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
Purposeful
Roadblocks
Offering
Beneficial
Lessons to
Enhance
Mental
Strength.
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. Look
inside.
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 blessing, 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.
Create it.
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.


God: Well.
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.
Trust me.
Life is wonderful if you know how to live.





Say, Hi

I felt that I should revisit to fulfill my blog's only wishlist (which I had ignored all the while) which hoped that some day its host would get back as usual and make its home lively, bring back its sunshine days..... and now it is indeed a silver lining! :)


Just wanted to greet "Hi". Do you still visit me? Then say "Hello". Cheer me up!

Hugs!
