Just Stating The Obvious Poetry Contest

Not one is perfectly happy on earth Still we praise God for his bountiful agape love and worth If God were powerful as everyone affirms Why doesn't he end all our problems? Why doesn't he do something that confirms? Every one is suffering, for many life is unbearable If he were a true father, he should end all agony With true love his actions are no way comparable Scriptures state we suffer for our sins When we sin he watches without forcibly stopping us Either he lacks power or doesn't care if we sin God is heartless and merciless of all No one can sin and get away with it Every sin we do, punishment does befall God is as helpless as me and you If not helpless at least moody for sure All you ask he will not give you I feel God is neither bad nor good He is a mere spectator doing what he should He is doing it all maybe for livelihood It is obvious, who is God we have still not understood About God, we have merely read and heard We have not seen him, he is definitely misunderstood 24.04.2021 Written for Just Stating The Obvious Poetry Contest by Brother Jacob

It’s bcoz we are not only this mind body. Once we end feeling of separation from source, jiva (lower mind) and Atma (higher mind) merge with Paramatma (God), suffused in His omnipresent love vibration, ever aglow in our heart.

Who created delusion/ Maya. Why? I don't mind an discussion with you on this. Bhagvatam begining chap says God created world as he was getting bored. When all born started getting salvation, to make it work Maya was called to blind humans.
