The Religious God

ocean full of religions and not a drop of peace
~ my soul
yes this is how I  feel things are everywhere….
I have not been blogging since dec.2012. I  didn’t know what to write. My restless soul didn’t encourage me to type or write. So I just let it wander aimlessly for some time before it told me to share this piece of my thought with you .
I am not one of those who would watch something bad happen and look somewhere else cos that is not my problem, NO, I am not one of those who would not get up till the they were not going to be directly hurt by something..
I am not a Hindu or a Muslim or a Christian, I am neither a believer of caste or class….I do not belong to any tag except for what I was born as…a human.
Please understand I have nothing against religions, but those who misrepresent it, those who choose to read and understand what they wish to and use it to manipulate others. It is sad and scary how violent people get in the name of Religion. 
 If your God was how you behaved here on earth, there would be a  full fledged battle royale going on in the Heaven between Gods of all religions for the best place in Heaven and with  telecast rights to the highest bidder cos that is what you do and well No body loves reality Entertainment like God does or else we would not be here, what say ?
I see people around me shouting and screaming in the name of religion, banning, protesting against books,music,dance,clothes,movies cos they find them against their religion, and I ask them where were you when a girl was gang raped and left on the streets to die and the whole nation was protesting against rise in crime. why don’t you find it against your religion and protest when an infant is raped or a child is killed in the womb or left in the streets to die.I ask where were/are these groups,these so called bodyguards of their Gods and Religions when the common man was/is battling the most serious disease called corruption.I ask everyone around me why this indifference?
I find it funny and sad both when people fight in name of religion and take out their religious texts to quote something
I find it funny when people don’t understand a simple thing That GOD DIDN’T WRITE RELIGION,WE DID.
GOD WROTE MOUNTAINS,BIRDS,ANIMALS,TREES,RIVERS and US.
we insult Gods creation every day, we rape God’s art everyday and then shout how our God is being insulted by a painting or a song!!!
I find it disturbing when a person changes his or her religion cos it was not giving them the peace they wanted. If they had really read and tried to follow the religion they decided to abandon, they would have understood that the only way to serve God and follow religion
is to help others,
is to follow love and peace,
is to keep this earth beautiful,
is to let the earth breathe clean air,
is to let the sky be blue,
is to let the rivers dance,
is to throw away cages and let the birds and animals free
is to break all the shackles and let others be.
There are many who will not agree with me , I don’t care, I don’t care because you talk about centuries old traditions and culture and if we are going back then correct me if i am wrong, but in the beginning our forefathers were following just one religion and doing just one thing…Survive-trying to find food, hunting and wearing tree barks and animal hides, so religion isn’t that old, is it…but we humans are….
I WONDER WHY AND WHEN DID WE LET WHAT WE WROTE TAKE OVER WHAT WE TRULY ARE…
I let my soul absorb everything, every happy and disturbing bit and try to do the right, serve others, follow god who is everywhere, in everything, appreciate his art, keep everyone in my prayers and try to make at least one soul laugh each day.
and in this ocean full of religions I  try and find peace.
And when I go to sleep every night I pray for every heart filled with hatred to find some peace,I pray that they see and understand that if you are not human, no religion or no amount of money in the world will ever be able to provide you any peace.I pray the lost souls understand that joy is not found in malls or a brilliantly made structure but is inside everyone and you will only feel it when you give some of it to others.
for humanity is the only religion God wrote and that is the only religion God would ever want us to follow.

amuse-bouche

read this as a poem
or label it a prose
today i don’t care
all i know it should make sense
horizontally or vertically
all i know
it should touch your soul
≈≈
i was looking for my  muse
in the lush greens
tranquil blues
rustic browns
and found lot of songs
but nothing could quench
my thirst today
nothing could calm my soul
≈≈
and then i went out into the streets
saw a man selling fruits
His face had more wrinkles
than his crushed old cloth
but how beautiful was he
each wrinkle a story
each line a song
yesterday a soldier
today a farmer
love and sacrifice
running in his veins
i met my muse there
i found a reason to smile
read this as a poem
or label it a prose
today i don’t care
≈≈
i saw a little kid walking on road
holding his grandfather’s hand
who was supporting whom
it would have been difficult to tell
both drawing strength
and comfort from each other
and how beautiful was the love
that flowed from one soul to another
through their connected hands
i met my muse there
i found a reason to smile
read this as a poem
or label it a  prose
today i don’t care
≈≈
that lady begging at the signal
smiled when asked 
if that was her daughter
studying under the bridge
Yes said the face
glowing with pride
kept bigger notes in another pouch
saving for daughters new school dress
for next session
oh a mother’s love
i met my muse there
i found a reason to smile
read this as a poem
or label it a prose
today i don’t care
≈≈
today i got more than
i had asked for
today i searched for the pearls
in right shells
read this as a poem
or label it a prose
but today i don’t care
today i am happy
I know you smiled while reading this
i know it touched your heart
i know i wrote well today
i know He was guiding me the whole time
i know tomorrow Will be a scorching hot Sunday
and  i know i will still be smiling a lot

Oh Dear God!

Once in a small town of Godsnt Dere
lived a man named Cribbin Oltime                     
and whole day and night
he would blame every one
for all the mishaps
and his miseries
then one day a croak
from the near by pond
told him to direct his questions to God
as he was the ultimate power
or so a lot of people from other towns believed
so Mr. Cribbin Oltime started blaming God
asking him to listen to his woes
and whole day he would ask 100,000 things
and take break only for food and nap
slowly people started gathering around him
and his fame reached far and wide
and people from far away land
would pay handsome amount
just to see the cribbing man
this was a power game for Mr. Cribbin Oltime now
he had his worth to prove
so he took a pledge
and said he would not stop cribbing
till he was sure god was listening to him
why o God why he would ask
why am I so poor
why do I fall sick
why o God why he would ask
others are richer than me
and the frog got a better voice than me
why  God why he would ask
no pretty girl falls for me
my talents are not worthy of any recognition
why God why
why this
 why that
why the shoes
why the hat
and this continued till one day he died cribbing
and went to the land of judgement
and saw god waiting for him
and he asked why o God why
did you not do anything when I was alive
when I was cribbing day and night
why god why are you here at this level
shouldn’t you be in heaven
why god why
and God said
oh I am sorry
I thought you wanted me to listen
so I was….and then
I thought you were fed up of your life
so I took the thing which was bothering you the most ….
your life
What!!
even the angels around were shocked
but before anyone could utter another why
God said ok I will give you back your life
But I will give you the life of a Caterpillar
and the man asked why god why Caterpillar
God said well for one
that’s how much life you had when I called you here
second you are in a thought crunch
and only a huge session of green munch will help you
and third I want you to have some silent time
To this  the man asked why god why God
can’t a Caterpillar complain?
and God said oh they can,
 its just that I don’t understand their language
and so the man quite shaken and stirred
was sent back as a Caterpillar
but when the other caterpillars heard what God had said
oh boy you should have been there
and if you think they can’t talk….!!!

Autism Child-From the Same God

Custom made perfect kids

Were never in God’s plan

Just in case you thought

Why me?

Why my kid?

It was us being unrealistic

Forgot the rules of the world

Forgot how every butterfly is different

Forgot how no two things are same in nature

And still there is acceptance for all

While all kids are Gods paintings,

Kids with special needs are his modern art

While all kids are Gods poems

Kids with special needs are his free verses

While all kids are Gods songs

Kids with special needs are born when he raps

Oh yes God raps and tap dances too

But you have to have an open mind for that

So next time you think why me

And go in denial for long

You blame the god for this and that

And think he has been wrong

First thank him for a child born

For that is a gift in itself

Thank him for the uniqueness

For that is God’s way of showing

He still has faith in us

 

More time you will take in accepting

Precious time you will waste

And while God may forgive you

For Your ignorance and delay

Time my dear will not

If there is any doubt

About you kids behavior

That you are having today

Get some help

As soon as you can

Meet a special educator

And chart out an action plan

 

It is Ok to feel sad sometimes

But don’t get stuck up for too long

And look at you kids when in doubt

It has not being easy for them

So pull up yourselves and be ready

You have to make your kid independent and strong

Your kid accepts you for what you are

They love you in spite your shortcomings or faults

Show them the way

You will be surprised

How much in this process you will also learn

Embrace your child with all your heart

Support them, be part of their life

Understand what they say and when they don’t

And see the wonders of love.
