what is GOD ?

Personally I think and feel that ...

GOD is a Concept

GOD is a Belief

Human being cannot absorb anything that is infinite and abstract easily

Hence the concept and belief of god is given face, body and also name

Different people as per their convenience have given god a different identity , face , figure and name.

The concept is so powerful that everybody even accepts all kind of stories attached to it without verifying at times.

The concept has been there for thousands of years since our existence

Anything we cant understand or explain is termed as godly

We cannot absorb that many things in our life are beyond our understanding and hence we try to cover up this lack of understanding with imagination and speculation and start providing crutches to our brain which cripples without finite reality

Just like Spiderman requires structures to throw webs at them and hang and fly from one place to another and at times throw webs in open sky hoping for a structure which will support his web and he will fly and more so in movie if we carefully watch many a times the web is thrown in sky and he keeps on jumping from one place to another

Similarly we also require some finite power to hang on to and move ahead in life with its support

We created the concept of god and gave shape and entities so that it can support us

For many centuries now we are trying to give shape , definition and certainty to the shapeless, beyond definition , infinite and uncertain.

Further to give reality and certainty to the concept of god we not only gave shape , figures and name but also constructed temples, mosques and synagogues and woven a web of rituals to support it

And for many centuries many accepted this concept as a hereditary property or gift and passed on without exploring to future generations

There are so many stories , literatures, constructed structures (temples) , totems and rituals used to decorate and cover the concept of god that its almost impossible to challenge or deny it and term it as concept

To deny it is to go against our own species because everybody's life has been somewhere tightly or loosely, willingly or due to need and society pressure is attached to this concept

This concept remains the most popular and most ever marketed , sold  mis - sold in history of mankind and will continue for future centuries as well

There is no doubt that there is some divine  power beyond our understanding orchestrating our life and things around our life

But  it is beyond our imagination, understanding and capability to define

Our efforts to convert infinite , shapeless into finite will continue till we accept and give up to frame the infinite into a finite

The concept created by us for us is so far becoming more important than life at times.

Knowing you as a person, such views can be only expected from you. Your neutral and impartial behavior is being reflected here. It takes courage to practically explain or write on such a subject. Well written!

I AM NOT ATHEIST, BUT...

(1) I am not atheist, but my mind has remained confused between three conflicting terms viz. God, Nature and Destiny or fate. This confusion stands stubborn from my childhood to my current old age of 60 years even after injecting all round knowledge in my brain.

(2) I again came across three more conflicting terms while studying law during the course of my three years post graduate LL.B. course and thereafter in the course of practising law as an advocate viz. Law, Facts and Circumstances. I am not still able to come to logical conclusion as to who is law giver, whether God, Nature, Destiny or artificial authority voluntarily created by national human groups called State? Again this highest importance to law is based on assumption that law is supreme over facts and circumstances. But is it really so?

(3) When I take law as supreme with aforesaid assumption, I put law within domain of God by assuming and believing God as almighty and supreme commander of law. This assumption and belief leads me further to put facts within domain of Nature and circumstances within domain of Destiny. This leads me to conclusion that God is superior to Nature and Destiny. But when I study and analyse worldly affairs around me, I find that most obedient devotees of God and most honest followers of law suffer most with all humiliation and pain. This horrible justice comes to such devotees of God and followers of law by bombardment of horrible facts by Nature and/or horrible circumstances by Destiny upon such God devotees and law followers. This horrible justice leads to frustrating conclusion that Nature and Destiny are superior to God and their facts and circumstances are superior to law. This again creates a confusion with paradox that although law is within domain of God, justice is within domain of Nature and Destiny. Oh! I am sorry to state that I am confused within net of aforesaid confusing terms or concepts and I really want to get out of this confusion with clarity of mind. Can anybody give logically convincing explanation clearing all this confusion, which I hope may be troubling other human minds too? -Adv.B.S.More

Thank you adv More for your kind comments. There is duality in everything we do. Co created by human and created by the super power. At times its impossible to segregate whose creation is in action and has final authority because the super power helps us contact create anything together be it law or our destiny hence the confusion.
