Purpose of life

Purpose of life

What is the purpose of your life? Why were you born?  What were you made to do? Now these questions can be answered from various perspectives. based on any dreams if you have or had (in some people’s case may be none). Dream- Something (career choice, social work, spiritual path or any other activity) that is capable of taking your sleep away. Visualizing yourself in that role/roles might give you immense satisfaction, joy, even goose bumps or makes you feel on top of the world. But then the dream should also be something that makes you do anything for it or it should drive you to pursue it persistently and more importantly it should have a purpose close to you. It can also become a conscious commitment that you do to yourself or to someone most important to you. Many don’t succeed either due to lack of dedication, discipline, complete devotion of time and efforts or fear of losing. Now let’s get a little deeper here..

Let us look at what our life’s purpose is in terms of religion or more to say from a spiritual perspective (Religion and spirituality can be different when we look at it from a worldview.. But yes ideally religion should lead us to spirituality. Religion is man-made or a name given to following a spiritual leader or a particular doctrine..Unless XYZ God states it as a name in any of the scriptures which is very much a possibility  :-/   )

Note: Atheists can stop reading at this point Let’s have a glance at where few of the religions in India anticipates about an individual or community’s final destination

Desired final destination in various religions

Hinduism

2000px-Om.svg

Spiritual emancipation is therefore considered the main goal of life, and other goals are necessary stepping stones towards it. Hinduism thus recommends a balanced life with an ultimate spiritual goal. The word for this process is yoga, from which we can derive the English word yoke, meaning to join. There are various types of yoga, also called different margs, (paths). There are three main ones: karma-yoga, the yoga of selfless action; jnana-yoga, the yoga of spiritual knowledge; and bhakti-yoga, the yoga of loving devotion. Some add a fourth path called raja-yoga or astanga-yoga, the eight-step path, which includes physical exercises and culminates in meditation on God within the heart The Hindu rites of passage at death, during and after the funeral ceremony, are to ensure the peaceful passage of the soul. They aim to prevent the person being “held up” in his or her spiritual evolution, and particularly to avoid the possibility of remaining in subtle form as a ghost (as yet without a new body). As the real self (atman) remains unchanged throughout life, it likewise continues after death. This soul is carried within the subtle (astral) body to its next destination. The precise nature of the new body is determined by the state of mind at death and is specifically influenced by (1) the person’s desires, and (2) his karma. Dharma also means righteousness, or living morally and ethically at all times. The ultimate end of every Hindu’s life is moksha, which can be understood in a variety of ways: liberation from rebirth, enlightenment, Self-realization, or union with God. This is considered to the be the highest purpose of life, although very few can achieve it in a single lifetime and there are a variety of paths to attain Liberation: seeking freedom from life’s limitations. What are the things we really want, we deeply want? The Hindu word for this state of being is moksa(pronounced something like “mok shah,” sometimes spelled moksha or liberation. Moksa is the complete release from the countless limitations and restrictions which impinge

upon our existence.

Christianity

christian meaning of life God purpose of life religion spirituality

Christianity has its roots in Judaism, and shares much of the latter faith’s ontology, its central beliefs derive from the teachings of Jesus Christ, as presented in the New Testament in BIBLE. Life’s purpose in Christianity is to seek divine salvation through the grace of God and intercession of Christ. (cf. John 11:26) The New Testament speaks of God wanting to have a relationship with humans both in this life and the life to come, which can happen only if one’s sins are forgiven (John 3:16–21; 2 Peter 3:9). In the Christian view, humankind was made in the Image of God and perfect, but the Fall of Man caused the progeny of the first Parents to inherit Original Sin. The sacrifice of Christ’s passion, death and resurrection provide the means for transcending that impure state (Romans 6:23). The means for doing so varies between different groups of Christians, but all rely on belief in Jesus, his work on the cross and his resurrection as the fundamental starting point for a relationship with God. Faith in God is found in Ephesians 2:8–9 – “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast.” (New American Standard Bible; 1973). A recent alternative Christian theological discourse interprets Jesus as revealing that the purpose of life is to elevate our compassionate response to human suffering. Nonetheless the conventional Christian position is that people are justified by belief in the propitiatory sacrifice of Jesus’ death on the cross. The Gospel maintains that through this belief, the barrier that sin has created between man and God is destroyed, and allows God to change people and instill in them a new heart after his own will, and the ability to do it. This is what the terms “reborn” or “saved” almost always refer to. The Baltimore Catechism answers the question “Why did God make you?” by saying “God made me to know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him in this world, and to be happy with Him forever in heaven.” Catholicism‘s way of thinking is better expressed through the Principle and Foundation of St. Ignatius of Loyola: “The human person is created to praise, reverence, and serve God Our Lord, and by doing so, to save his or her soul. All other things on the face of the earth are created for human beings in order to help them pursue the end for which they are created. It follows from this that one must use other created things, in so far as they help towards one’s end, and free oneself from them, in so far as they are obstacles to one’s end. Thus, as far as we are concerned, we should not want health more than illness, wealth more than poverty, fame more than disgrace, a long life more than a short one, and similarly for all the rest, but we should desire and choose only what helps us more towards the end for which we are created.” The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) teaches that the purpose of life on Earth is to gain knowledge and experience. Mormons believe that humans are literally the spirit children of God the Father (Acts 17:29, Heb. 12:9), and thus have the potential to progress to become like Him (Matt 5:48). Mormons teach that God provided his children the choice to come to Earth, which is considered a crucial stage in their development — wherein a mortal body, coupled with the freedom to choose, makes for an ideal environment to learn and grow. The Fall of Adam is not viewed as an unfortunate or unplanned cancellation of God’s original plan for a paradise, rather the opposition found in mortality is an essential element of God’s plan because the process of enduring/overcoming challenges, difficulties, temptations, etc. provides exclusive opportunities to gain wisdom and strength–which is centred on learning to appreciate and choose the good, and reject evil (Gen. 3:22; Book of Mormon, 2 Nephi 2:11;Pearl of Great Price, Moses 6:55). Physical separation from God is an integral part of this mortal learning experience, without which humans would never have the opportunity to learn to live by faith–which as Christ taught in the New Testament, is the key to invoking the powers of heaven (Mark 11:22-23). Despite this physical separation, God doesn’t leave humans in darkness. From the beginning, God has followed a pattern of revealing knowledge through chosen prophets. This instruction from God includes the concept of repentance as a lifelong growth process through which humankind continuously learns to make better choices by forsaking sin and learning from mistakes. Throughout this process, baptized members can regularly invoke the cleansing power of Christ’s atonement through the weekly ordinance of the sacrament (Luke 22:17-20). It is through the atonement that mortals are made worthy to return to the presence of the Father, where they can continue to build upon the wisdom gained during mortality (Doctrine and Covenants 130:18-19) and ultimately fulfill their end purpose, which is to inherit a fullness of God’s glory (Rom. 8:16-17, Gal. 4:7)—that is to say, his intelligence (Doctrine and Covenants 93:36; 50:24). Because God is just, he allows those who weren’t taught the gospel during mortality to receive it after death in the spirit world (1 Pet. 3:18-20, 1 Pet. 4:6, Doctrine and Covenants 138), so that all of his children have the opportunity to return to live with God, and reach their full potential.

Islam

Islam

In Islam, man’s ultimate life objective is to worship the creator Allah(God) by abiding by the Divine guidelines revealed in the Qur’an and the Tradition of the Prophet. Earthly life is merely a test, determining one’s afterlife, either in Jannah (Paradise) or in Jahannam (Hell). For Allah’s satisfaction, via the Qur’an, all Muslims must believe in God, his revelations, his angels, his messengers, and in the “Day of Judgment“. The Qur’an describes the purpose of creation as follows: “Blessed be he in whose hand is the kingdom, he is powerful over all things, who created death and life that he might examine which of you is best in deeds, and he is the almighty, the forgiving” (Qur’an 67:1–2) and “And I (Allâh) created not the jinn and mankind except that they should be obedient (to Allah).” (Qur’an 51:56). Obedience testifies to the oneness of God in his lordship, his names, and his attributes. Terrenal life is a test; how one acts (behaves) determines whether one’s soul goes to Jannat (Heaven) or to Jahannam (Hell). However on the day of Judgement the final decision is of Allah alone. Allah may coverup short comings and allow some people to go to heaven even though they may have some sins in the record. The Five Pillars of Islam are duties incumbent to every Muslim; they are: Shahadah (profession of faith); salat (ritual prayer); Zakah (charity); Sawm (fasting during Ramadan), and Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca). They derive from the Hadith works, notably of Sahih Al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim. The five pillars are not mentioned directly in the Quran. Beliefs differ among the Kalam. The Sunni and the Ahmadiyya concept of pre-destination is divine decree; likewise, the Shi’a concept of pre-destination is divine justice; in the esoteric view of the Sufis, the universe exists only for God’s pleasure; Creation is a grand game, wherein Allah is the greatest prize. The Sufi view of the meaning of life stems from the hadith qudsi that states “I (God) was a Hidden Treasure and loved to be known. Therefore I created the Creation that I might be known.” One possible interpretation of this view is that the meaning of life for an individual is to know the nature of God, and the purpose of all of creation is to reveal that nature, and to prove its value as the ultimate treasure, that is God. However, this hadith is stated in various forms and interpreted in various ways by people, such, as ‘Abdu’l-Bahá of

Bahá’í Faith

Ringstone.svg

The Ringstone symbol represents humanity’s connection to God. The Bahá’í Faith emphasizes the unity of humanity. To Bahá’ís, the purpose of life is focused on spiritual growth and service to humanity. Human beings are viewed as intrinsically spiritual beings. People’s lives in this material world provide extended opportunities to grow, to develop divine qualities and virtues, and the prophets were sent by God to facilitate this.

Judaism

Judaism

In the Judaic world view, the meaning of life is to elevate the physical world (‘Olam HaZeh’) and prepare it for the world to come (‘Olam HaBa‘), the messianic era. This is called Tikkun Olam (“Fixing the World”). Olam HaBa can also mean the spiritual afterlife, and there is debate concerning the eschatological order. However, Judaism is not focused on personal salvation, but on communal (between man and man) and individual (between man and God) spiritualised actions in this world. Judaism’s most important feature is the worship of a single, incomprehensible, transcendent, one, indivisible, absolute Being, who created and governs the universe. Closeness with the God of Israel is through study of His Torah, and adherence to its mitzvot (divine laws). In traditional Judaism, God established a special covenant with a people, the people of Israel, at Mount Sinai, giving the Jewish commandments. Torah comprises the written Pentateuch and the transcribed oral tradition, further developed through the generations. The Jewish people are intended as “a kingdom of priests and a holy nation” and a “light to the Nations“, influencing the other peoples to keep their own religio-ethical Seven Laws of Noah. The messianic era is seen as the perfection of this dual path to God. . The rationalist Maimonides sees the ethical and ritual divine commandments as a necessary, but insufficient preparation for philosophical understanding of God, with its love and awe. Among fundamental values in the Torah are pursuit of justice, compassion, peace, kindness, hard work, prosperity, humility, and education. The world to come, prepared in the present, elevates man to an everlasting connection with God. Simeon the Righteous says, “the world stands on three things: on Torah, on worship, and on acts of loving kindness.” The prayer book relates, “blessed is our God who created us for his honor…and planted within us everlasting life.” Of this context, the Talmud states, “everything that God does is for the good,” including suffering. The Jewish mystical Kabbalah gives complimentary esoteric meanings of life. As well as Judaism providing an immanent relationship with God (personal theism), in Kabbalah the spiritual and physical creation is a paradoxical manifestation of the immanent aspects of God’s Being (panentheism), related to the Shekhinah (Divine feminine). Jewish observance unites the sephirot (Divine attributes) on high, restoring harmony to creation. In Lurianic Kabbalah, the meaning of lifeis the messian ic rectification of the shattered sparks of God’s persona, exiled in physical existence (the Kelipot shells), through the actions of Jewish observance.

Buddhism

Buddhism meaning of life God purpose of life religion spirituality
Early Buddhism

Buddhists practice to embrace with mindfulness the ill-being (suffering) and well-being that is present in life. Buddhists practice to see the causes of ill-being and well-being in life. For example, one of the causes of suffering is unhealthy attachment to objects material or non-material. The Buddhist sūtras and tantras do not speak about “the meaning of life” or “the purpose of life”, but about the potential of human life to end suffering, for example through embracing (not suppressing or denying) cravings and conceptual attachments. Attaining and perfecting dispassion is a process of many levels that ultimately results in the state of Nirvana. Nirvana means freedom from both suffering and rebirth. The eight-spoked Dharmachakra

Sikhism

2000px-Khanda1.svg

The Khanda, an important symbol ofSikhism. The monotheistic Sikh religion was founded by Guru Nanak Dev, the term “sikh” means student, which denotes that followers will lead their lives forever learning. This system of religious philosophy and expression has been traditionally known as the Gurmat (literally “the counsel of the gurus”) or the Sikh Dharma. The Sikh Gurus say that salvation can be obtained by following various spiritual paths, so Sikhs do not have a monopoly on salvation: “The Lord dwells in every heart, and every heart has its own way to reach Him.” Sikhs believe that all people are equally important before God. Sikhs balance their moral and spiritual values with the quest for knowledge, and they aim to promote a life of peace and equality but also of positive action. A key distinctive feature of Sikhism is a non-anthropomorphic concept of God, to the extent that one can interpret God as the Universe itself (pantheism). Sikhism thus sees life as an opportunity to understand this God as well as to discover the divinity which lies in each individual. While a full understanding of God is beyond human beings, Nanak described God as not wholly unknowable, and stressed that God must be seen from “the inward eye”, or the “heart”, of a human being: devotees must meditate to progress towards enlightenment and the ultimate destination of a Sikh is to lose the ego completely in the love of the lord and finally merge into the almighty creator. Nanak emphasized the revelation through meditation, as its rigorous application permits the existence of communication between God and human beings. Meanings relating to religion

  • To reach the highest heaven and be at the heart of the Divine
  • To have a pure soul and experience God
  • To understand the mystery of God
  • To know or attain union with God
  • To know oneself, know others, and know the will of heaven.
  • To love something bigger, greater, and beyond ourselves, something we did not create or have the power to create, something intangible and made holy by our very belief in it.
  • To love God and all of his creations.
  • To glorify God by enjoying with him forever.
  • To go and make new disciples of Jesus Christ.
  • To act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God.
  • To obtain freedom (Romans 8:20-21)
  • To fill the Earth and subdue it.(Genesis 1:28)

I particularly like these lines from Sikhism urging devotees to meditate to progress towards enlightenment and the ultimate destination of a Sikh is to lose the ego completely in the love of the lord and finally merge into the almighty creator. Nanak emphasized the revelation through meditation, as its rigorous application permits the existence of communication between God and human beings. So according to most religions in the world the ultimate aim for an individual or mankind is to attain salvation (Nirvana, Moksha) and to be with God. If God indeed created us, we understand his purpose for us as told by the religions we are born into or currently following. Atheists might say that is religious organisations created funda to create communities and their followers and acquire money and refute everything as they have never tried enough or more to say have ignored his presence with his materialistic needs or measuring viewpoint and hence never really experienced God. Most of the religion have the concept of heaven and hell and if you believe in some religion it is indeed necessary to read further. So if the years of wisdom through all the religions is true, then we do need to think about after life, our salvation is indeed hanging . No one can help us, until we help ourselves. So the next question that pops up is

  • Who is God?
  • Can God be like a person?
  • What must His/her be like?
  • Is he someone who replies to our prayers?
  • Can we actually talk to him?
  • Does he heal people’s sickness?
  • Is he a distant God who is somewhere in heaven or can he be a personal God who can have a relation with men?
  • How do we figure out where exists a true God?
  • Can God still do miracles for us as mentioned in various scriptures?

Now the world is filled with varieties.. Where is the ultimate truth which reveals the true God or which takes you to a real living God? Now there are various concepts going around which I don’t personally hold any authority to pass any judgement on like http://listverse.com/2009/04/13/10-christ-like-figures-who-pre-date-jesus/ or http://jesus-vedas.blogspot.in/ To contradict the above I found another interesting link here http://www.wrpf.org/balan.html SO my personal thought is to be wary of what we are reading and try to be as much as unbiased as possible, do our self research from every nook and corner of every scriptural texts, scientifically, historically, logically and most importantly by faith. The above process might take months or even years..People have spent a lifetime to seek the truth and have gone in varied directions coming up enlightened or empty with partial truths.  But the advantage now is there is whole new dimension, new fixations out there.. I certainly believe the truth is out there.. Just for us to open our hearts and minds to embrace it through consistently seeking the truth.

But I can think of something far simpler  “Praypray

Since God is ought to be omnipresent and someone who hears our prayers can’t he lead us to the right revelations? With a sincere and open heart try to seek him .. We can pray as simple as “God, please reveal yourself..who are you?” or “God please tell me if XYZ is God?” If you get answers, then how confident are you that it was God and not-self thoughts or imagination. Then you might need to go further and make sure that it was indeed the true divine God by making it sure through prayers or through other means specified above. If it is indeed him then he will give you confirmations. Once you find God, the purpose would certainly follow  🙂 He will surely to reveal himself and show himself through a miracle or by any which way he chooses too. If you do find answers being a true seeker, then it is indeed a possibility to abandon lot of things you might be following right now. But yes the joy and fulfillment of being true to yourself and finding the true God and purpose should help you move ahead!

Mother of Christ and the blood of Jesus

Almost all Christians believe that they are saved or being saved by the blood of Jesus

Matthew 26:28

28 for this is my blood of the[a] covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

The blood of Jesus that was shed at Mount Calvary is a source of healing (interior and physical) as has been attested by billions of testimonies over the centuries.

This Holy blood of Jesus through which we are redeemed is precious, so precious that in a certain way all the previous sacrifices in almost all religions has been brought to null and doesn’t exist today.

This is the significant event in history of Christ’s death on the cross where God intervened as was prophesied though the prophets of God prior to the coming of Jesus Christ.

If we look at Psychology we do know the character traits of a child till age 7 is almost formed up to 70 percent as told by Psychologists.

In fact, the great Greek philosopher Aristotle once said, “Give me a child until he is 7 and I will show you the man.”

So the genes of the parents are also told to be responsible for character and intergenerational diseases.

Since it was not fit, either, that the Lord should fall sick, who healed the diseases of others; nor again was it right for that body to lose its strength, in which He gives strength to the weaknesses of others also. 7. Why, then, did He not prevent death, as He did sickness? Because it was for this that He had the body, and it was unfitting to prevent it, lest the Resurrection also should be hindered, while yet it was equally unfitting for sickness to precede His death, lest it should be thought weakness on the part of Him that was in the body.

If, then, once more, His body had fallen sick, and the word had been sundered from it in the sight of all, it would have been unbecoming that He who healed the diseases of others should suffer His own instrument to waste in sickness. For how could His driving out the diseases of others have been believed Matthew 27:42 in if His own temple fell sick in Him ?

St Athanasius


But Jesus is never attested to have had a single disease over his life plan (In Christ’s Doctrine of the Atonement, one of the greatest books ever written on the atonement, A Pastor George Smeaton wrote:

He saw no corruption, either living or dead – for sickness or disease could not, as a personal quality attach to the sinless One…Disease could not touch Him, because He did not come within the power of sin in the world; and hence we never read of His contracting any distemper or disease like other men)

Jesus did not inherit any mental, physical, genetic, chemical, electrical, or biological infirmity from Mary and none developed in him. He was never infected with germs, viruses, or disease and he did not transmit them either.

Christ would actually never have died unless he had consciously chosen to voluntarily give up his life to death (John 10:17-18).

and this blood is the source of our redemption and his death and suffering the pleasing sacrifice to God the father for our sins.

It is the final covenant between God and man. Thus we have the words of the consecration in the Mass of Pius V, “This is the chalice of My Blood, of the new and everlasting covenant: the Mystery of Faith. It will be shed for you and for many for the remission of sin.” This is taken from the gospel of Matthew, “And He took the cup, and when He had given thanks He gave it to them, saying, ‘Drink of it, all of you; for this is my Blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.'”(Matthew 26:27-28)

Scripture doesn’t mention anywhere that this blood of Jesus was a work of the Holy Spirit and not as a genetic and blood transmission from his Mother.


If the blood of Jesus is Holy and precious, it came through the body of the mother who bore our salvation.



If this is the case the virgin who was kept immaculate(spotless) as a special grace to bear the son of God in her womb, then nurse, feed and be with him even till the cross when only a single apostle stood by him.

The Word, then, visited that earth in which He was yet always present ; and saw all these evils. He takes a body of our Nature, and that of a spotless Virgin, in whose womb He makes it His own, wherein to reveal Himself, conquer death, and restore life. St Athanasias on the Incarnation

The body, then, as sharing the same nature with all, for it was a human body, though by an unparalleled miracle it was formed of a virgin only, yet being mortal, was to die also, conformably to its peers. But by virtue of the union of the Word with it, it was no longer subject to corruption according to its own nature, but by reason of the Word that had come to dwell in it it was placed out of the reach of corruption. 5. And so it was that two marvels came to pass at once, that the death of all was accomplished in the Lord’s body, and that death and corruption were wholly done away by reason of the Word that was united with it. 
St Athanasias on the Incarnation(c. 293 – 373)

It is said the virgin Mother stood erect below the cross, (verse) also if see all the depictions of this event in Christendom across the ages.

In 1570 Molanus disparaged the faint because John 19:25 says she “stood” by the cross and commentaries on that verse had always taken “stood” to affirm Mary’s admirable “constancy of spirit.”


It is because Mother Mary did knew the plan of God, she was overflowing with grace and virtues and was the vessel of honor as chosen by God the Father (Gen 3:15)  protoevangelium  as the new Eve who filled with the power of the Holy Spirit who could stand straight which no earthly mother ever could on such a pain. And Lord Jesus made her part of his redemptive suffering by fulfilling the prophecy of Simeon.

And you too are called to suffer with Christ

St. Paul’s teaching of Colossians 1:24 reveals the role of each Christian, in imitation of the Apostle, to “rejoice” in our sufferings and to “make up what is lacking in the sufferings of Christ for the sake of his body, which is the Church (Col 1:24).”

The sufferings of Christ created the good of the world’s redemption.

This good in itself is inexhaustible and infinite. No man can add anything to it. But at the same time, in the mystery of the Church as His Body, Christ has in a sense opened his own redemptive suffering to all human suffering.

Pope JOHN PAUL II, Apostolic Letter, Salvifici Doloris, n. 27.{/footnote}

A CONVERSATION WITH JESUS

Seby was much worried. Seby is an over-thinker and being a Seeker who slowly with much research, prayer came to the Catholic Faith. He was worried with his talks with Protestant brothers and sisters. Since they seemed to be teaching different doctrines and have different understanding.  Seby had lost his peace with his over-thinking and trying to understand the other sides of the coin and the souls behind them.

The night before Seby discussed this over call with a friend Sukru, who guided him, “What would it help, if it affects your relationship with Jesus. Talk to him. Ask him how He is too. And for sure convey my love to Him first.”

As Seby woke up thinking these words,

Seby asked Jesus, ”Lord why are there heresies ” and then Seby thought in his mind. “O! You allowed them, didn’t you?”

Jesus replied, “God allows, men creates heresies.”

Seby understood, men has been given free will. They are not under bondage and so free to make choices and can get influenced. So he was stupid in blaming Jesus.

Seby asked Jesus, “What should I do”? Thinking that our Lord Jesus would give Him some counsel how to deal with incorrect doctrines.

But Jesus just said, “Do not worry. Love me”

Seby realizes his fault and how much time he has wasted, he should have spent loving Jesus, the Love Incarnate.

Then He started doing as was told.

And Jesus said,”I have always loved you my child from eternity”

Seby flows in the Love of His Divine Lover, O King forvever, O sweet fragance of Love, Love , Love and Only Love..

Seby in his silliness asks Jesus, “How much do you love me Lord?”

Then the Lord shows him, “I created the stars, moon, the sun and everything for you my child. I have loved you when you were in your mother’s womb” Seby saw all this in his mind’s eye hearing the sweet voice of Love.


Seby is in tears. “How awesome are you, my God.”

Seby tells Jesus,”Sukru loves you.”

Jesus replies, ”We love her too”.

Seby continues with loving the Lord. After sometime again curiosity arises, our mind is not peace till we get answers sometime.

So he asks, “Lord, My Protestant friend tells me they have the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Have you given them the keys?”

Jesus replies (His voice in a sad tone): “No”

Seby again asks the umpteenth time as He has been a seeker, “If the Catholic church is indeed the church He established?” and Jesus replies, “We have”.

Seby has asked this not sure how many times on different occasions, and our Lord has replied through his voice, His word, visions and experiences.

Being a seeker who just seeks the fullness of truth, Seby doesn’t mind to be disassociated with a church or group of people. Al he seeks is complete truth of faith, nothing less.

 And then suddenly Seby regains all the peace he had lost fretting over, over thinking trying to understand people following incorrect doctrines. Peace instilled so precious. Seby is back through His Holy grace! All glory and Honor forever and forever to the reigning King. O love most Pure, I love you. O love most Holy, I love you. O love most Adorable, I love you, MY GOD, My All, Jesus.

On Dad’s birthday

You who were filled with glee, from the spur of my ingress into this world,

While copious art childless, thy received a child,

Received a gift from the heavens,

how laudable thy true heavenly father who granted thee!

Exuberant at the sight of the suckling,

How greater could the joy that cometh from above,

Loved and parented us at each step,

Got us acquainted into the arts,

The gift that we cherish, how thankful are we

Out of others prayers, our maker giveth thee hands and feet to service ably,

Never let down to beg or steal,

While plenty passed by, diamond year on earth, thankfulness ought to be!

He who gave thee a heart to serve, tongue and ability to passionate discourse,gift of grandchildren,

As a Buddha exclamined, “Man seeketh umpteen desires still unsatisfied”

While the Lord sayeth,”Seek ye first the Kingdom and everything will be added unto thee”

O life within life, life that can be taken any moment,

Penning a poem, make a video, some happiness that will pass,

Myriads ebb and flow, unnoticed and unknowing their maker,

Finite beings whose infinity lies in the infinite one!

Still life endowed, 75 still running,

seek Thy maker, know HIM the greatest treasure,

Treasure who will renew , restore, build and above all fulfill you

For everything is vanity, but Jesus , His Love ,

We were born to know HIM, experience His love and more,

No greater love can ever be!

Victory !!!

O you Christians,

You are called to live a victorious life.

We have a God who desires for us to win every battle while on earth, every temptation, every sin.

I had heard a Satanist Priest’s interview recently who said ,”Christians stand in front of a rich treasure but most don’t know to receive it.”

You cannot be a Christian or fight the temptations unless you allow HIS Spirit to work in you and let him fight for you and win it for you

God has given has you authority but unless we enter the place which Satan fears most.

Go for a confession, the sacred place where your relationship with God the Father is restored through Christ the High Priest himself

Repent of your sins, make a genuine confession today. Seek HIS spirit’s help to repent.

Sin keeps you away from experiencing God though HE is there

Know of the treasures of heaven and the weapons that God gives us to be victorious.

Live victorious over the flesh, over the deceits of the enemy who is prowling like a roaring lion.

and then Praise God and give glory to HIM which you surely will!

Shalom in Christ

Faith

Walking through the water

 FAITH

To stand steady in hope in thy care when the chips are down,

Glorifying you lovingly when the world judges us to be a bizarre clown,

Worshiping you with confidence when chaos is everywhere grown,

When the mind, body and soul is united in you my Lord Jesus,

The way our holy trinity is bound as one in love!

Being bold in thy gifted certitude of never abandoning thy children,

On cloud nine over the brass tacks that you love us more than any Father or brethren,

Confident of thy hand in times of turbulent storm and despair,

Though eyes have not seen you, still having bona fide belief in thy coming aspire,

Making the path for our salvation in thy glory o Lord!

What more greater can anyone offer than his only begotten son,

Aware of our weakness and mere mortality which might falter, but none can qualm your immortal adhesion,

For bequeathing your bride church and the beauty of thy promise of its stupendous saints at service,

Knowing that someday our friends may mislay, our family might forsake us but thou won’t vamoose,

Our bodies may wither away but our souls will live in you, O God Almighty!

Innocence

Innocence

With the droplets of innocence oozing with nonchalance,

I did have a partner with irreverence,

With whom the glorious past of childhood always be remembered,

The sharing of spirited stories and the rioting times.

 

Carrying our heavy knowledge goodies from kindergarten till schoolhouse,

Those blistering runs through the garden with crazy mates,

Rushing back to watch the real underwear star with his bear only second to my sibling,

Feels sorry at times for the kiddish arrogance and wrongful wham..

 

The dip in drums and guffawing to glory on water slaps,

Our journey through mountains, valleys, creeks listening to squirrels and cuckoos,

Like king and queen enthroning the planet by climbing on mango,peru trees,

But world cannot deny the countless dewdrops of joy and the cajoling thankfulness..

A Walk just went by

 A Walk just went by

Gawking the divided sky of relucent rays and aglow cracks with dark scary recurrently blinding clouds,

Did I just walk ahead comprehending over and above apropos his perfect system?

Small was the walk gaping at fellow men coming from a day’s tire thinking about their tomorrow’s,

Troubled woman doing salad shopping with their pain curtained makes me mediate on your expressions.

 

The greener grass that lay below my feet with the jaundiced taller one’s painting nature’s vivid contrasts within Xerox sort’s still picturesque,

Can the brown mud and the razor rocks that lay witness a foreseen story or feel like his favourite creation?

The chilled chinook ventilating warm bodies and caressing their despaired spirits..

Sometimes endowing abundant joy and ease at labour, but at times gloomily warm,

Is that a part of your mysterious plan to tease the Achilles heel of thy mercurial mannequins?

 

As white and cuddly roped wool wrapped baby sleeping unassumingly in the corner,

My mind wondering the cuddle you would want to accord your cherished conception,

As I ponder wool being lifeless swooping with slightest breeze, we being given intellect and gravity,

Created in your image with free will, a conscience and a heart to feel and a soul to connect back!

 

Who gives four shoulders to the deceased distorted dog roadside without guardian, do lives’ care for else life,

Leafing through the edge of eyes and altering aside briskly as if the smell does smudge you,

Who would bother or reminisce erstwhile gone, mere mortal’s cast of your startling plot,

Wondering about our purpose, about your unscrupulous ways, veiled plans for selfish self,

Awestruck in your creation decaying cyclically cause of thy choicest of creations.

 

When we can’t comprehend on the design of a leaf, the perfection of a blooming flower, the timing and course of climate,

Perpending hard if there is darkness for a day, can we propel the lights on the globe?

If there is a tide can we helve the height or channel it to safe shore with a wishful remote?

Lies a measuring tape on the edge, can it measure the twisters of your plan, the true grit of your power, the tenacity of your love, the torrent of your mercy?

 

If something doesn’t happen as per our perceived timings, when we are oblivious of next off moment, can we comprehend your unfathomable plans and conjure up thou mind?

As certain it is that you loved us more than any father ever has and ever would,

How ought we love thee who created us with exhaustive ecstasy supreme to savor his secondary creations carving our identity in your palm?

Gazing back at clouds building castles in air about the day thou shalt descend from clouds at thy right hand while a walk just went by!
