Do you believe in God? 5

Do you believe in God?

Once a western journalist asked Sri Aurobindo the very common question,”do you believe in God?”

Sri Aurobindo’s reply was an emphatic “No”.
This greatly puzzled the journalist.he had,after all.travelled a long distance to see this “Man of God.”

“what do you mean by saying no?”he asked the saint.

Disciples.

On the last night,when Jesus was to depart and it was clear,that the next day he would be killed,the disciples asked him,”in the kingdom of God.where will we be sitting?Where?”

They were not worried about Jesus,they were not worried about his death,which was to happen next day,but they were worried about their own positions-the twelve disciples in what hierarchy,in what order?

They showed no concern about Jesus,but were bothered only about their own position.

a thief and a politician,held in prison,made plans to escape one night from custody.in the night the thief climbed over the wall.the guard heard the rustling sound and challenged.”who goes there?”

quietly the thief said,”meaow”,imitating a cat.the guard went away and the thief escaped.
now it was the turn of the politician.again the guard heard the noise of his climbing and called,”who is there?”

“nobody ,”the politician answered,”just another cat!”This ‘cat’ was caught.

When we do as other do ,we must not be over-clever in the imitation.

Two travelers,seeking respite from the searing heat of midday sun in summer,took shelter under a leafy tree.

They soon felt refreshed in the cool shade.
“what sort of tree is this ?does it produce edible fruits?”asked one of the men to the other.
“It is a plane tree”, said his companion.”it gives neither fruit,nor good timber.it is one of the most useless,even as you are enjoying my shade?”

Criticise no person as useless.every being has a reason for being useful.

carpeting the earth

a disciple was constantly complaining about the behaviour of others all the time.
master told him,”wanting other people to change their ways is like trying to spread carpet over the whole earth.changing yourself is wearing a pair of slippers.

It is much easier to protect your feet by wearing slippers where you walk,than to spread a carpet over the whole ground.”

the eternal waiter 0

the eternal waiter

the sun descends down the western horizon.
the bleating lambs,baying cattle
and chirping birds return home.
on the solitary banks of the stream
whose blue water is crimson
by the parting kiss of the dusk
i sit alone,waiting.
waiting for the night to advance!
for the day to emerge from the womb of the night.
for whom do i wait?
does he knows i am waiting?
perhaps life is an eternal wait,an endless waiting.
