|Can you tell me how to find God?
me to tell you how to find God? I am afraid you have to find it on your own. No
one can lead you to God. This is an entirely personal journey. You must choose
your own path.
to understand God is a futile exercise. All I know is that if God exists he must
be Love. Therefore all we should care is love each other. We must see each other
as members of one human family and do not fight over whose religion or
understanding of God is better. If you love, you are experiencing God - you are
becoming one with God.
not give a hoot if we pray to him or not. He is not a narcissist. He is not a
needy psychopath as Muhammad portrayed him. All he cares is that we love each
other. So help someone who needs you. Do something good for your fellow humans.
This is how you serve God, not by waging wars and killing people. If God
wanted to make people believe in him by force, he could easily have done it on
his own, why would he need to hire henchmen and Jihadis to do it?
blasphemy. It is an insult to God. It implies that God is irrational. He can't convince
people with logics but he wants to make them submit by force. It also implies
that God is impotent. He depends on his believers to do what he can't do on his
own, i.e. kill the unbelievers. What blasphemy can be bigger than this?
knows God so no one can tell you how to find him, what he is or what he wants.
If anyone tells you "God said" he is lying. He wants to use you.
"God said" is a logical fallacy. God does not speak and no one can hear him. No one can know what is in the mind
of God. Read what others say about God but take everything you read with a grain
of salt. Trust your own intelligence. Accept what makes sense to you and reject
what does not. Particularly be wary of those who are convinced. Those who claim
to know, know the least. No one can understand the entire truth. Truth is bigger
than all of us. We all understand a piece of it. Listen to others to enhance
your understanding but always evaluate what they say with your own commonsense.
Reason is above everything; let it be your guide. God has given all of us enough
of it to find our way on our own. We fail to use it. We follow impostors who
lead us to our perdition. This is our own shortcoming. We have betrayed the
greatest gift of God which is our intellect.
said God is love. This is the best definition of God in my opinion. If God is
love the only way you can experience God is through love. Love the Universe.
Love this Earth and all things therein. Love the sky, the sea, the mountains.
Let the air fill your lungs. Follow it with your mind. Feel and love the life that it
breaths in you. Love the trees and the animals. Love your fellow human beings. You can
show your love for humanity by serving it, by doing something that benefits
mankind. If you can't volunteer to go to Africa to help the victims of AIDS do
your daily work in the spirit of service. Love your parents and meet their needs. Love
your spouse - be loyal to her, be faithful to him. Love your children and be committed
to their growth, progress and well-being. But above all love yourself. If you
don't love yourself you can't love anyone and anything. It is by loving yourself
that you can love others and love God. Love yourself unconditionally. No one can
or should love you unconditionally unless you are an infant or a toddler. Learn
to love yourself unconditionally always. Learn to forgive yourself every time.
Acknowledge your mistakes and forgive yourself. As you forgive yourself, forgive
others too. Let go. This is the essence of love. This is how you experience God.
love fills your heart, it becomes the seat of God and you become a temple where
God descends. God will not descend in a heart that is filled with hate. No
Muslim can experience God if he loves Muhammad and hates mankind. You can't love
mankind when you believe that unbelievers are najis (impure), Jews are
monkeys and pigs and that those who do not share your asinine creed will be
burned in hell. The farthest people from God are Muslims. They have shun
themselves from God and his love by a veil. Look at them! Look how they live and
how they are constantly waging war with others and with each other. look how
miserable they are. They are worshipping Satan. They are filled with hate and
this is what they get as the result. Jesus said "Watch
out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they
are ferocious wolves." (Matthew
7: 15) Then he
"By their fruit you will recognize them."
Look at the
fruit of Islam. A cursory look at the Muslim world is enough to know Muslims are
and love do not mix. A heart that is filled with hate has no room for love, and
therefore, no room for God. Muslims, to the extent that they follow Muhammad,
have distanced themselves from God. They are incapable of loving and as such
have deprived themselves from God's love. In hate they come, in hate they live
and in hate they die.
direct you to a few articles I have written about God and what I understand of
it. This is my understanding and my understanding changes, so don't take my
words as facts. They only represent my thinking. Evaluate them with your own
understanding and if you come up with a better definition share it with others.
If God is the maker of reason, he must be rational. If a definition of God is
irrational, it is not true.
