WHAT IS GOD?
GOD is not a person.
That is one of the greatest misunderstandings, and it has prevailed so long that it has become almost a fact.
Even if a lie is repeated continuously for centuries it is bound to appear as if it is a truth.
God is a presence, not a person.
Hence all worshipping is sheer stupidity. Prayerfulness is needed,
There is nobody to pray to; there is no possibility of any dialogue between you and God.
Dialogue is possible only between two persons, and God is not a person but a presence – like beauty, like joy.
God simply means godliness. It is because of this fact that Buddha denied the existence of God.
He wanted to emphasize that God is a quality, an experience – like love. You cannot talk to love,you can live it. You need not create temples of love, you need not make statues of love, and bowing down to those statues will be just nonsense.
And that’s what has been happening in the churches, in the temples, in the mosques.
Man has lived under this impression of God as a person, and then two calamities have happened through it.
One is the so-called religious man, who thinks God is somewhere above m the sky and you have to praise him. to persuade him to confer favors on you, to help you to fulfill your desires, to make your ambitions succeed, to give you the wealth of this world AND of the other world.
And this is sheer wastage of time and energy.
And on the opposite pole the people who saw the stupidity of it all became atheists; they starteddenying the existence of God. They were right in a sense, but they were also wrong.
They started denying not only the personality of God, they started to deny even the experience of God.
The theist is wrong, the atheist is wrong, and man needs a new vision so that he can be freed from both the prisons.
God is the ultimate experience of silence, of beauty, of bliss, a state of inner celebration.
Once you start looking at God as godliness there will be a radical change in your approach.
Then prayer is no more valid; Meditation becomes valid.
