Why can’t we see God?

Why can't we see God?

Can we see the sea from a beach? Can we see what is underneath the sea? Alas, we can't.

We can see the mountain, but do we know what is behind the mountain.

The answer is quite simple.

Our senses are limited. On top of that we wear a veil which we call our personality.

As long as this personality is skewed, we will be looking at the world through a coloured glass.

By this I mean our lower nature – inferior energies like anger, greed and fear blocks us from achieving the meeting with the divine.

Once we remove our glasses, we will be able to see him clearly.

Being a child again. Helping the needy. Praying for a purpose. These are some of the activities that take us one step further towards God.

But mind you – he is truth personified. Can you look at the Sun directly?

It takes a lot of perseverance and hard work to achieve a lofty goal such as soul seeking.

With his grace upon all of us, we will be able to see him one day.

And that is the Bible's promise.

"One day you will know the truth. And the truth will set you free"

Have we not had occasions where a voice inside us tells us if a thing is good or bad.

That is divine wisdom knocking.

We believe in miracles – but isn't rain pouring down a miracle, a tree growing up a miracle ?

As we let go of our false beliefs and assumptions, the path becomes clearer.

He is nearer to us than we are to ourselves.

Submit to him. He is the merciful. And he will surely bless us with things beyond our expectations.

Three Cheers,
