HOW I EXPERIENCE GOD

Experience God

God is not an abstract being to be found in temples and churches but we find God within. How then can we find the God within? I have realised by asking the question “Who am I?” we can find God. This question can be answered at various levels, however we are looking for more than an intellectual or scientific answer.

We are looking for something more profound answer. The answer lies within your own being, and is pointed towards your own awareness. The answer should make you know yourself and feel yourself, it is an experience . When you get to that place of self awareness you become immune to the ups and downs of everyday life. Not poverty, anger nor disillusionment can touch you because you get such a strong sense of your position or belonging in relation to the rest of the Universe. You realise that everyone and everything has a duty to perform and everything fits in perfectly, almost like a puzzle.

Once you realise your calling in life, you will be drawn miraculously towards everything and everyone to fulfil this calling. Life will become easier because you are not trying to fulfil a dualistic nature like most men are, but you are fulfilling the duty you were meant to on this earth.

It is not always easy to find ourselves, however it is not impossible either to find this awakening that everyone is looking for. This can be obtained by spending time with yourself, meditation is one way, however it is not the only way. In order to experience God we have to quieten the noise of the outside world. Let go of all the negativity that bombards our daily lives and question ourselves constantly, until you find the answer. Because each person is unique, and of a different spiritual level, the time it takes one person to find the answer is not necessarily the same time it will take another.

An enlightened soul, one who has been awakened to his true calling and identity is always in bliss. It’s common knowledge that man is happiest when he does what he loves. This is the way God intended his children to live, discover who you are and when you do, live in line with what makes you happy.  This is how I experience God.

BE FEARLESS

Business Coach - Suyan Budhoo

In years gone by adults used fear to get children to pray or attend church and yet they spoke of a loving and merciful God.  What then do we expect our children to believe? How can God punish us and still be loving.

The youth of today however do not believe in such superstitious religion and why should they, when we have also encouraged them to think for themselves and enquire into the meaning of science, technology, philosophy and poetry.  Why not enquire about God?  We should not be afraid of opening up our minds to questions like Who is God? What is religion? Why am I here? and Who am I? for the fear of stumbling upon the truth.

Executive Coach South Africa

Who am I? this is a question that some religions do not encourage for the fear of opening up a can of worms.  What if a child learns that he is gay, or if he wants to become an artist instead of a Doctor, or wants to explore another religion.  These are the type of fears parents have and sometimes instead of allowing our children to explore who they are we burden them with unfair expectations.

Fear in most cases are unwarranted, we worry about some future event that in any case may never occur.  If you have faith in your parenting skills and in the way you bring your children up then there is no need to fear.  Your children should therefore be encouraged to explore who or she is.  We as parents cannot teach our children, the child teaches himself.  Our duty is to afford opportunities and remove obstacles for his growth.

Life Coach Suyan Budhoo

Fear of some future event can cause unnecessary stress and may become your death in a form of some disease.  Being held captive by fear can be hell, playing games with your mind, this is unrighteousness, this is not the way God intended us to live our lives.  Living in fear is like being in prison, it is more important to have a free mind than it is to have a free body.  What good is it to live in this world, if we are always afraid to enjoy the benefits of this freedom.

“All the negative thoughts and ideas that are in this world have proceeded from this evil spirit of fear.  Therefore I say Be Fearless, be fearless”  Swami Vivekananda

WHAT IS KARMA?

Suyan Budhoo - Spiritual Coach

The word karma has its origin in Hinduism, and a loose literal translation would mean ones deeds and the effect such deeds yield. It is often misconstrued that karma only means punishment for past misdeeds, however this is not true. A good and merciful God also rewards the good actions of a good man.

Although this is a concept that had its origin in Hinduism, it does not belong exclusively to the Hindu’s. I have found this concept in the Bible as well “ As you sow, so shall you reap”, and its meaning- you will be rewarded or punished as per your actions. If we understand and accept all that is found in the Bible and the Vedas, as spiritual beings, why are we still struggling to rise above everyday challenges.

Suyan Budhoo - Business Mentor and Coach Durban

Right living is simple as explained in our great books, it is the interpreters who have complicated it by over analysing and defaming the original message. The original meaning is that we should act in a way that is pleasing to God in order to get the rewards that we deserve as we can see from various religions.

Krishna–“Fixing your heart on Me, you will overcome every difficulty by My grace; but if from self-conceit you do not listen to Me, you shall perish utterly.”

Mohammed–“If you rely upon God as He ought to be relied upon, He will provide you as He provides the birds: they go out empty and hungry in the morning and come back big-bellied at eventide.”

Native American–“All things give thanks to You, O Wakan-Tanka, who are merciful, and who help us all. We ask all this of You because we know that You are the only One, and that You have power over all things!”

Executive Coach in South Africa

All religions believe that we receive our rewards and punishment either in this life or in death. However Hinduism, because of its belief in rebirth believe that if we do not receive our benefits and punishment in this life, same can and will be meted out to us in our next life.

This theory to me, as a Hindu makes sense, how else do you explain the difference between the place, family, society and circumstances in which people are born. It is said in the vedas that our previous life determines this life and what we do in this life determines the circumstances of our next life.

Karma is the intertwined knot that has no beginning and no end, this symbolizes the interlinking of cause and effect, if you desire only positive results act only in a positive manner.

THE IDEA OF FAITH

Suyan Budhoo - Life Coach at DurbanThe idea of faith is often associated with belief or trust in a deity, doctrines or teachings of religion. Faith can be a synonym for hope, which is not necessarily based on proof.

The word faith as it appears in Wikipedia does not bear any connotation to man’s belief in himself. Faith in one’s self should be the first lesson we learn when we begin school, and yet for some strange reason that is never taught in any curriculum.

Business Coach JohannesburgA basic skill like confidence and an enquiring mind is left out of the curriculum completely and yet we demand from our children excellence and astuteness.How unfair we are in our expectations when we do not take the time to instil in our children the very thing that we demand from them.

Faith in God is necessary, however man should not be afraid to question certain rituals and rites that he is required to perform. We are after all living in a technological age where google is allegedly a better parent than real mothers and fathers.There are still some things better learnt through experience and love rather than a laptop or iphone and faith is one such topic.

Personal Executive CoachThe Old religions have taught religion through instilling fear in children. It was said that some ill fete will befall the person that did not comply with certain codes and who did not conduct themselves in a certain way. We should therefore encourage healthy discourse between children and adults when it comes to religion or faith. If we want religion to survive with and through technology we need to be flexible in our approach. A rigid religion with no explanations will suffer to survive this rapid changing world.

The new religion to have faith in ourselves is what appeals to the young masses of today. How can we know the world if we don’t know ourselves? This is what the major religions need to align their teachings with. Faith in one’s self, God and community is what will bring our world closer to peace and further away from hate crimes and war.
