In Search Of God

I went to temple, God wasn't there,
there was only a stone statue standing,
I bowed to it and came back.

I went to the mosque, He wasn't there as well,
there lying was some sacred soul in deep sleep,
I didn't feel like to disturb and came back.

I went to gurdwara, didn't saw Him there too,
there was kept a covered holy book in the middle,
I sat there for a while and came back.

I went to the church, God wasn't there again,
Christ's statue I saw having both eyes closed,
I lit a candle and came back.

I looked up at the sky and prayed,
that God please show me where you are?
the dark clouds poured some drops on me.

I sat under a tree to get shelter,
and waited for the rain to stop.
the tree didn't even hesitate to get me in.

The rain soon stopped and I got up,
to continue my journey in search of God.
as I started to walk the tree waved me.

Soon I began to think about quiting,
but somewhere deep inside me,
a voice called me up to don't lose hope.

I again started to walk with no clear path,
mountains, forests, deserts and oceans,
nothing left to be visited on the planet.

Then I looked inside me again,
to find where the voice came from earlier,
I realized I was carrying my destination with me.

The journey ended where it had begun from.

The destination is to unite with oneself. To go deep within. To realise that the power, the force resides there, within us.

@ dhandal: absolutely. I personally believe in that.
