Blind faith..


Do you ever wonder, What is god? Who is god? Where is god?? Is there a god??

As children we learn to follow what our parents teach us, we pray because they do; we follow a faith because they do. We put our trust in this unknown Supreme Being in total blind faith because the faith is instilled in us from a small age. It is some one we turn to in need, someone who we believe is there for us when all the doors are closed.

But is there really someone up there? If there is, are we mere strings on a puppet in his/her hands? Does this Supreme Being really hear us; does he really guide us in the right path? Does he deter us from the wrong path? Does he really listen to our pleas?

If this is the case then why when we have struggled and strived to achieve some thing, worked our hardest, left no stone unturned to achieve our hearts desire and eliminated all obstacles in the way, does the goal that we are a stones throw away to achieve is suddenly snatched away from us. If it was not meant to be then why did we get encouragement to attain it and reach for it only to have it break is a thousand fragments right in front of our eyes at the last moment?? Why are we lead to a path, enticed with aspirations and when we are about to fulfil them they are taken away? Sometimes these things happen time and time again, isn’t being disappointed once a lesson enough???

Isn’t this exactly like giving a child a wrapped lollipop and when the child has learnt to unwrap it, It’s  snatched away? Why give it in the first place??

People often say “Oh it was for the best it was not meant to be.” God knows this and there is something better waiting for you .But can you really have faith and believe this? Can we believe that our destiny is already pre written but that god gives us an opportunity to try and  divert it, or change it?? If this is the case why do we face failure after trying so hard???Do we have the power to change our destiny? Can we then say that “In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don’t?

Maybe having faith in someone or something will help to build an inward reservoir of courage, hope and calmness when you think that your life is facing an un relenting storm. Maybe there is no supreme being, it’s just an excuse, a way to console one self or maybe its someone to pass the blame to when things are out of our hands.Maybe its humans way of reaching out when all other doors are closed? Who knows may be “Scepticism is the beginning of Faith??”

  1. Nice write up !!!!! really thoughtfull

  2. geezz….dat’s a post beyond me!!!

  3. angel…
    i love the way u wrte.. its really nice..
    n abt god.. i was a strong dis-believer of god.. n some things happened in my life which made me believe in god.. 😉 even then i do strongly believe but there s somethin, some supernatural force takin care f everythin…i hope so.. i dono the truth. nobisy does.. 😀

  4. well said!!
    Loved reading the whole thing.
    as usual.. good flow it has.

  5. God is what we believe. It may be a very powerful person who stays in another planet or universe who controls everything or may be our self inside us.

    I believe in the 2nd one !!!

  6. Food for thought!

    I agree with u in “Maybe having faith in someone or something will help to build an inward reservoir of courage, hope and calmness when you think that your life is facing an un relenting storm.”

    Whether God is there or not, the above always holds good!

  7. i thought !! .. and ended up an atheist !

  8. Agnostic eh !
    well, the truth is around us, everywhere. All it needs is courage to look at it. Even if god existed, hurting humans so that he can pass his never ending time, makes him a sadist. Doest it ? 🙂

    (strictly my beliefs and i hate to discuss/argue about this topic. Its an uber-cliched topic for me)

  9. well, i quite liked your conclusion…..and thats what i too believe….may be beleiving in something super natural is just to pass the buck or giving excuses…and ya, it works as an inbuilt fear not to do something bad…as the so called “GOD” will punish you later.

  10. Very nice write up.. I love the last line.. it is a question and well put :)…keep it goin’….

  11. OMG you stole my thoughts! I was just planning to write about the same topic!
    according to me God is just an entity created by our ancestors to explain all the things that they couldn’t practically explain themselves…

    I do believe the dictum : Do good to others and good will be done to you. But not because god is watching you from above!

    anyways nice write up. Keep it up

  12. amazing thoughts,
    i was almost lost in the post…
    “Scepticism is the beginning of Faith??”

    this brought me back…
    keep good words flowing 🙂

  13. ah! lovely topic.. very thoughtful, seriously!!! well god is a faith, yeah blind faith i agree but then it gives a strength which is needed when one is low… just the hopes that prayers work is enuf when one feels low 🙂

  14. Hey, I found your blog while searching on Google. I have a blog on online stock trading, I’ll bookmark your site.
