Often, I feel, while beginning to write a short note, that I may be the next one in line to get people's vote for a death sentence. But having realized that people still do acts of nonsense seriously, I am assured that it shall be long before I am executed.
Keeping these bad possibilities aside, and with a reminder that this is indeed a note which is short, here is my deduction on who or what God is. First of all, God is unseen and present everywhere. Secondly, He exists in 33 crores of avatars in Hindu mythology and believed as One in most others. Even the oldest of faiths did worship multiple gods. Now, speaking much on gods in such a sensible world may end up in me being a world criminal. So, keeping these aside too, let's focus on God.
Defined by properties of omnipotence and omnipresence, this God of ours must have extreme powers. From a needle to the Burj, He is there and we respectfully believe in this. But has anyone seen/heard God speak? According to most, we feel His love through our successes, and His lessons through failures. He must live beside us, from before birth to after demise, must travel with us to offices and hospitals, must laugh in our joys and cry in our sorrows, and must be within us. So, He must be someone who is familiar to us. Only one satisfies these properties, or more crudely, specifications, and that is, Time. It (He) stays with us, remains with us on birth certificates and even after death on death certificates. It decides whether our name shall remain here after we are gone. It stays within us in our pulses. Our offices and schools start and end with It. The day and night are Its decisions. It has been here since unknown, and cannot be killed, although killing Time is an expression. We pray to God seeking that Time be with us, unknown of the fact that we pray to Time (God) asking It (Him) to be with us.
We are so engulfed in business that we have missed Its interpretation! God can never be complex, He is simple. He exists such that even though man shall be ignorant or busy enough to visit a place of worship, yet He shall be there around him, and within. It is Time that is God!
