Where is God ?
This was my question as a child.
The answer was, he is up in the sky.
I flew at that time in a plane and tried to find him up in the clouds.
Religion teaches us that God is everywhere , Jainism believes that God is in every living thing visible or invisible. Each living being has a soul.
What is Soul or Atma? This was my other question.
About ten years ago I had a tumour in my heart , a very rare thing .
Within a week, my open heart surgery was done and l was safe. That whole week I was preparing myself and giving positive messages that I am a Soul and what is happening is to the body. I am separate from the body. This teaching was given by our Guru Param Krupalu Dev Shrimad Rajchandraji.
This inner confidence gave me a spiritual experience of being blessed.
I realized that I am far more than a physical body, but a soul. I am a Soul with a body rather than a body with a Soul.
Wayne Dyer says, you will see it when you believe it.
This positive thinking has helped me in my life to build inner strength , where I see God. Why should I try to find God up in the sky when he dwells within us!
