Why god is accessible to some and not all? Why some people seem to be happy for no reason while some unhappy despite the best privileges? Some people doing regular prayers but in vain. Some being atheist but still seem to get all they desire.
There has to be some underlying concept that governs all- Energy that permeates all matter and non-matter.
This is an unconscious realization for which many want an answer for consciously.
Everybody tries to solve this mystery at some or the other stage of his spiritual journey. Here in this article, I will be presenting my thought process regarding the same through energy outlook.
Concept of God through the analogy of Electricity and Appliance
Suppose god is electricity which reaches each appliance ( we individuals) alike but changes form when the appliance switch is turned on (we all humans have different identities though we function through same Godly energy). Each appliance performs its own dedicated function. To get pure electricity you need to turn the appliance switch off and power turned on.
This is what we do by turning inward, going from mind to no mind, meditation, and so on. We then again access the source behind our formation.
Similarly, God which is the source of the supreme energy distributes itself in many forms through the material, non-material, living, and non-living things.
But when we allow this supreme energy flows through us unrestricted (we restrict it by attaching self with our limited identity), we flow with this divine energy.
What I believe is that most of us feel drained all the time is because we have lost our connection to source in order to cope up with the demands of the fast-paced world.
How to access back the god within us?
By turning off the appliance switch and leaving the power switch on.
So the appliance is still getting pure electricity but is not producing any output it is actually designed for. This is what we do by turning inward and switching off the outside chatter for some time allowing the free flow of God through us. Mostly, the best results are possible through engaging in meditation or devotional activities
Here you loose identification with yourself-your name, place, family, or otherworldly attachment for some time. You either develop a single point focus over your rhythmic breathing or a mantra or your god to achieve this level of identification.
This helps expand your awareness from the limited you in time and space to unlimited you that is beyond time and space.
Here is when the magic starts happening and you see serendipitous coincidences in your life. I believe it as an exact science as expanded awareness allows you to think in ways previously inconceivable.
When your prayer gets answered?
Different devotees have different beliefs and can make their own different versions of the same god.
For some praying to god means multiple hours of prayer, some only a few minutes but dedicated one, for some performing rituals (though they hold their own scientific meaning), for some quantum mechanics and so on. And consequently, no one sees the results the same way.
But here’s the truth.
Single point focus or what I said above going inward or accessing the no time zone (or no identity)
By devotional practices, one removes his mind from worldly goals or thoughts and move away from mind to something that is beyond and requires faith.
Some may access this state by default even though they may be trying to access this state. Maybe this state comes to them naturally.
I am still a rookie in applying all that I told above but one realization has penetrated deep in my mind that we can allow God to work through us anytime. It is we who are too much focused on our mind and our identity that narrows our awareness.
When we go out of our mind, which is in every case is in situations when we relax, god can flow through us. There lies your power. Whenever you are faced with any troubling situation try to relax, god can help you anytime, thing is to avoid clinging on to your identity too much.
