Adios Mr. Jackson!

I had taken a vow that I would not fill up my blog with News articles or anything that any regular bloggers would post. But somehow I could not stop myself when I heard that the King of Pop has departed for his heavenly abode. People associate Micheal Jackson with a variety of issues –positive or not so positive.
But to me, he is one of the greatest ever musicians to be born and there is no doubt that he has contributed immensely to the popularity of the genre of Pop Music. The Song “Heal the world” from his album - ‘Dangerous’ has been my all time favourite and as I write, I
cannot help but remember the beautiful lyrics that had been penned down :

Heal the world
Make it a better place
For you and for me and the entire human race
There are people dying If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for You and for me……….

I was so inspired by this song, that I named my blog after it!

I pray to the Lord for his soul to rest in peace.

Adios Mr. Jackson. May your music keep the bells in heaven tinkling!

God Exists!

I would first like to apologize for the title to this post - but I could not think of anything better. Maybe you would understand as you read on.I have often come across people who say God does not exist. I have also come across a few people who ask me to prove to them that God Exists. And how can I possibly forget yet another category – those who say My God – or to be more precise only the God I believe in exists and the others are fictitious!
What surprises me the most is that the human race can actually question the existence of the supernatural power- that too when the fact stands true that everything that one looks at, feels, does or experiences has a direct correlation to GOD!
Which Human being would have thought of creating a world as beautiful as the one we live in. Whether at work or play, coming up with innovations is not everyone’s cup of tea. But at the same time,even the most creative person on Earth would not possess 1/10000000 ….. of the creativity that God possesses –
which enables him to give the gift of life to Soo many human beings, animals….living beings – who are unique, look different, possess different characteristics, and have something different in store for them in life….. We notice that new born babies tend to smile in their sleep. It is such a beautiful sight – I have heard that babies smile because they are able to experience and feel the presence of God – when I think of this I am at times envious of them. A baby has no ill feelings, and is pure at heart – and so can easily feel the presence of God. But why is it that as it grows older, things tend to change?? That is the basic problem. The pursuit for materialistic happiness has made us so crazy that we have forgotten that one person who cares for us and loves us irrespective of how we are.
All I can say is that I feel sorry for those who think God does not exist and I hope and pray for them to realize the truth.
I read the following quote which I would like everyone to think about:

Once you accept the existence of God - however you define him however you explain your relationship to him - then you are caught forever with his presence in the centre of all things. - Morris West

For those who want proof – I have just one line – Open your eyes wide and look around, the proof is all around you.
Coming to the last category – I feel sad for those people, who like to discriminate and fight over the name of religion. Every religion may have its share of Do’s and Don’ts, but I firmly believe that God is one, and people should try to attain Moksha by virtue of honesty, sincerity and good deeds, rather than pointing fingers and smirking at what others say or believe. Everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion, and I think rather than questioning and squabbling about it, it would be nice if people to follow what they believe in and not create rifts in the name of Religion.
