Hi friends! I’ve always loved doors! In my life, they represent fresh opportunities, adventures, pointers, lessons, revelations, celebrations, and more.
In our WP community, opening doors translates into a renewed appreciation for our beloved fellow bloggers and their deeply cherished blogs.
Through my Doors Series, I aim to give our fellow bloggers the gift of sharing a piece of their world. I invite them to guest post on my blog and share their message, their story, their heart. I also encourage them to show how our blogs and worlds link together in love.
After all, IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE.️ ❤️
Today, we happily knock on the door of a dear friend and fellow blogger:
It is an honor and such a pleasant surprise to be asked to write a Guest Post by Yeka. I have been very busy with some personal work and have not been blogging. But there was no way I could say no to this immensely loving friend and fellow blogger. I would gladly fly thousands of miles to have one hug from her.
She has gone through extremely challenging times and has come out of these stronger, more resilient and more filled with love. And she keeps sharing her love and her light with all️.
I share her belief and faith: Only Love!
For me too, love is all there is.
God is Love and Love is God!
Let us all join together in this divine circle of eternal love.
WHAT IS MY RELIGION
I am a Hindu by birth. But if someone asks me what is my religion, I would say:
• It is compassion
• It is kindness
• It is being humane
And my God is: LOVE
My God is not sitting in a temple or a church or a mosque or any other place of worship. There is no god sitting on any mount or in any heaven!!
The love in our hearts is God! If you are kind, if you are compassionate, you are godly, you are spiritual!
There is no God outside of you. There is no God outside of me. There is no God who can ever be explained or defined!
Love doesn’t need any language. Love is a feeling and it can only be experienced. Love only needs loving! And God Being Love needs only loving. And God can only be experienced.
Hindu scriptures describe God as: Satchitananda — Sat Chit Ananda
Sat: Ever Existent
Chit: Ever Conscious
Ananda: Ever new Bliss
That is my God. That is the God I worship. That is the God I love. And that is the God I see and feel in the places of worship of all faiths and religions. Once we are filled with love we shall always be blissful.
And ultimately my Father and I are One. Indian rishis and scriptures had said that too, millenniums ago: I am He. My soul, my love is a vital and inseparable part of the Great Spirit, of Divine Love.
The Holy Geeta, Bible and Quran sit side by side on the shelves of the bookstores and they never fight! Those who fight are the ones who have never read them or have not imbibed their message of love, universal peace and brotherhood!
There is not and there can’t be any difference in: Christ Consciousness or Krishna Consciousness or the Consciousness of Prophet Muhammad and Buddha; or any self-realized being.
There is no God of vengeance and there is no God we should be fearful of.
God is Love
God is Peace
God is Joy
God is Bliss
God is Patience
God is Compassion
God is Light
God is Purity
God is Beauty
Unselfishness is God
Nature is God
God is in the fragrance of the flowers.
God is manifest in every sunrise and every sunset.
God is manifest in the smile of the child and in the hug of a friend.
God is there in every pure emotion and thought.
We are going through very turbulent times. There is so much unrest and uncertainty in the young as well as old. The only way we can help the world is by changing our consciousness; and by not getting sucked into the negativity being spewed by media, the politicians and their allies. Once we raise our consciousness, once we become love, once we tear the veil of separation, we help whole of humanity.
I will love till my last breath.
In Divine Friendship,
Thanks so much for opening your door to us, dear Ashok! ❤️
You have shared your freedom that comes with going beyond religion. Your liberation from the polarizing and divisive stands that institutions take. Your emancipation from biases, labels, and judgments.
And in your life, faith is a way of life. You have inspired us to be more tolerant with healthy respect and acceptance, with open minds and loving hearts. Instead of focusing on differences, we can acknowledge our similarities in goodness of soul and spirit. We can press ever so passionately into all that is True Love. For God is Love and Love is God. ❤️
So friends, thanks for dropping by!
Till our next run of Doors, I wish everyone many happy, love-filled days ahead!
And here’s looking forward to opening more doors with you! ️❤️
