What do you call God? That which is the source of creation is the creator. Is God there or not there? This is a foolish question in itself. Creation is there. Can you see creation? When there is creation, there must be a source for this creation. Now you can call that source anything, you can call it Shakti, you can call it Shiva, you can call it Allah.  Depending on your culture, you call it by some name.

Creation has happened wonderfully. You can't imagine it; that's how creation is, isn't it? The creator's job is complete with creation. Now if we live as a part of creation, there is no problem at all. But our problem is, we want life to happen our way, isn't it? You built temples upon temples all over the place but no matter what you built, life didn't happen the way you wanted it to.

If you want to live the creator's way, you won't have any problem. What's the problem even if you die? As per creation you just have to simply live. If a lion comes by, it will eat you, if something else comes by, something else will happen; this is how life will happen. Creation is like this we try to create situations the way we want them to be, isn't it?

Now, if we have to create the situations the way we want them, we have to take full responsibility in creating them. Whatever we do, we don’t do it properly, and so it crashes. Being the way we are, we don't have awareness. It is like lighting a fire in a room with a thatched roof and entertaining a cook who smokes, and then you don't want calamities to happen.

The Creator has done his job well and is still doing his job well. Only because of your expectations, there are problems. There is no remedy for foolishness unless you use your brains. No matter which God appears before you, if you are a fool, that itself will become a problem. -www.ishafoundation.org
