God-oriented life

india Updated: Jun 19, 2006 11:29 IST

A God-oriented life begins with the discovery of God. When individuals discover God, it means that they have found the truth. And this truth pervades their whole being and fills them with everlasting conviction. This conviction removes all frustrations from their lives and losses no longer matter to them. They never lose the feeling that their greatest asset, God, is still with them.

God is a spiritual focus for man. One whose heart is attached to God undergoes spiritual experiences at every moment. Belief in God becomes a source of spiritual development for him. Filled with the love of God, he does not need anything further. In the form of spiritual awakening, he receives such great wealth that he does not feel the need for anything else.

A God-oriented life for a man starts by remembering God. He begins to feel the presence of God. Man experiences this realization by pondering upon God’s creations. The truth is that the universe is an expression of God’s attrib utes. The universe is a complete introduction to God, who is visible in His creations. For one who discovers God, the entire universe becomes God’s open book. Every leaf of a tree becomes a page of the divine book.

Finding God is to find his centre of Love. Man by birth is a seeker of a Supreme Being who is far above him, who is free from all limitations and who may form the centre of his feelings. The discovery of God is to fulfill his or her real urge to find this Supreme Being.

Man, of his own free will, should surrender to God. He should build a life, which is based on the concept of God. This consciousness is the real ascension of man. In this consciousness lies the secret of all success.

The concept of God, thus, provides man with an ideology in which loss is turned to gain and adversity brings with it good tidings. It is therefore, submission to God, the only way of life for mankind.
