Who is God? Where is God? What is God?

I searched for God in temples

But nowhere was He found

I looked into the skies and waters

And everywhere on the ground

 

To me, God was a statue

I prayed to Him for years

I was in love with my Lord

And I used to pray with tears

 

I thought God lived in the temple

It was Heaven in every way

I used to talk to my Saviour,

Morning, night, all day

 

God gave me everything I wanted

There was nothing more to need

I used to be ashamed of myself

When I looked upon my greed

 

I had everything I wanted

But one thing I never found

I was looking for the God I prayed to.

Wanting to hear His sound

 

One day it dawned upon me

What is life’s real test?

To find true purpose and meaning,

I set out on a quest

 

I started studying the scriptures

In religion for Him I found

I went for many pilgrimages

Just going round and round

 

Who is God? Where is God? What is God?

This quest did I start

I had nothing else to desire

There was only one thing in my heart

 

I decided that I will not stop

My passion, I must find

I was willing to give up everything

There was only one thing in my mind

 

What use was the wealth that I earned?

What use was this pomp and show?

I knew my life wasn’t forever

I knew one day, I will go

 

I knew I was living in ignorance

The truth I couldn’t see

I was seeking happiness

But in peace, I could not be!

 

The world talks so much about God

But little do we know

God is such an amazing power

This cosmos is His show

 

The Sun, the Moon, the Stars

The Birds, the Animals, the Flowers

They are just manifestations

Of the one and only Power!

 

We think our goal is happiness

And pleasures do we seek

So shallow is our passion

We never reach the peak

 

We may get everything we desire

We may achieve all we dream

But if we can’t realize God

Then our life is without a gleam!

 

The purpose of life is to find God

We must realize the truth

We must realize what we are not

Only then, we will get to the root

 

A few of us are lucky

We start seeking God

We give up everything else that we have

Because we are in love with the Lord!

 

All cannot find the Master

It depends on His Grace

A few of us are lucky

To finally see His face

 

Not in temples, churches or mosques

Neither in Scriptures, you tear apart

Those who truly love Him

Will find Him inside their heart

 

God is Everything, Everywhere

He manifests as You and Me

He is the Cause and we just Effects

Without Him, we cannot be

 

God defined is God denied

We must believe that he lives

He is beyond our comprehension

But He is the One who gives

 

This is a Cosmic Drama

The Earth just a big stage

We are all just actors

We perform till we age

 

Then one day, the time will come

We have to pack and go

When Death will take over life

It’s the end of the show

 

Who, Where, What is God?

Don’t question, just have faith

Try to realize the Truth

Then you will reach the gate!

 

When you find what you are not

And the truth stares at your face

Then in your own heart, you will find

The Heavenly Master’s grace
