I Have No Peace

No peaceGod, you are destroying me and I have no peace in this world.

Well, well, well! Look who is saying that!

I am telling you the truth. Your world is full of ingrate beings and they don’t deserve to get all those goodies from you. Why are you so partial to these folks when they are the most undeserving?

Why are you deciding on my behalf who is deserving and who is not?

I can see with my own eyes how you are giving these so-called worthy people. Unworthy scum of the earth! I hate them!

Such harsh words? Hate is a very dangerous word. Don’t you know that? Hate is causing people to destroy some of your beautiful ancient monuments of archeological and architectural wonder.

Those are scumbags but these are douchebags. Your undue favoritism is paining me. I deserve all the support from you and you give it to the wrong types.

What is it that I have done? What injustice do you think I do? I am very compassionate and unbiased. Yet, you say I do partiality?

Yes! See for yourself. Look at that guy. He is the most undeserving one and you gave him a good career jump and great raise in salary. And look at that woman, you seem to favor her for no rhyme or reason, even though she has been very mean and nasty with you and your devotees.

About the salary, haven’t you got it too? You too get fantastic salary and great perks. Why are you forgetting that? Why is it that you forget about your own relatives who disown me and yet are favored?

No. I am ever grateful for what you have given me. But I and my relatives deserve it. I am the most hardworking person in my company. I work diligently and deliver results.

So you feel the others don’t deserve it because you checked up on your yardstick? Isn’t that lame? If I were to go by your yardstick of hard work then my world would be starving now.

You mean to say I don’t work hard? I slog all day and night and yet you think I am not doing anything? You are so much biased.

Aha! You remember the story of my favorite devotee, the celestial sage? He asked me one day who is my favorite devotee? I told him that one village farmer and the sage was shocked expecting me to crown him that!

How can a farmer be your great devotee? That’s ridiculous.

Yes. That’s what the sage said too. So we trooped down to check on the farmer. The sage heard him say God’s name three times during the entire day.

That’s really stupid. Three times is all he took your name and yet you call him your greatest devotee? That’s crazy!

Ok. So I told the sage I have an important job of carrying a brimful pot of oil round the universe without spilling any.

I am sure the sage diligently carried out the order. He mustn’t have spilled any drop also.

Yes. He did it perfectly. Too perfectly. So I asked him while doing that job how many times did he take my name.
So he said not even once. After all, he said that he was doing my work.

Right. How can he take your name?

But wasn’t the farmer also doing the job entrusted to him by me and yet remembers to take my name thrice?

Now I get it. I cannot use the yardstick of mine to judge others. You are the one and only true judge, God!

Again let me tell you, that I don’t judge. My universe judges and gives one gifts or punishments. I don’t interfere in her working.

Yes. But you are the final authority so how come you say you don’t interfere?

Look at it this way. I have appointed respective portfolio owners to handle my administration so why should I look into the day to day functioning? Haven’t I appointed capable beings to handle the respective jobs?

Yes. I heard about the various delegates you have appointed. So there is an intelligent system in place.

You are right. These are very important functionalities which need specific qualifications. Just like you or the one you are yakking about.

Don’t say that. I don’t like them. They don’t deserve your grace at all.

See, you will never change. It’s your tendencies from past birth that are so strong you can never overcome them.

Don’t go about cursing me God. Why are you cursing me? What have I done to get these kind of curses? You please curse those ingrate persons! I am your highest devotee!

Ha ha! Do you think I curse? Why should I curse someone? My Maya is always listening and she listens to everyone. So you sow so shall you reap. You know that phrase and whatever dirt comes out of ones mind or mouth goes back to them a hundred folds.

You are destroying me God. This is not a done thing. I don’t mean those words. I am sorry.

Your sorry has no value if you cannot control your mind. My teachings makes one control their mind. I always teach about compassion, love, forgiveness and goodness. Give them that and you will get it back a hundred folds.

Ok. I will try to do something about it. But before that, destroy these ungrateful creatures because they don’t deserve your grace or goodness.

Guess, you will never learn. Maybe we will have to burn another chip into you the next time we send you back on this earth.

I hate you God! You just want it your way. What use is my devotion for you then?

Sigh! Even after being the almighty God I cannot change you. Now that’s the toughest thing to tackle! My magic fails, saw that?
