What is God? Where is God?
It's a question that one of my roomates asked me and to that i have this to say.
He does not exist.
She agress wit me and rationalizes, if he existed then there ought not be so much suffering in this world.
not necessarily, i say. Happiness is relative: a man from the hills who has been deprived of all the technology that we in the city posess pities us. They do not have the peace that i have at home.
What about the people in Somalia, she sayz.
well sure, they have enough reason to be unhappy. The have no food, they have nothing that we can see for them to be happy about. But if all ur life one of the only things that u felt, as a constant was hunger then how would u knw the difference. I gave her an example of a program i watched on discovery. Basically there was a woman stating, she did not want to leave her house or her home. Considering the government was relocating everyone, because her land was not meant to be fertile. And she says, i do not care if it is. it will be hard for us to live, but i cannot relocate like the others. this is the only place that i have lived, and i think the hardship is easier to take than the relocation.
So how do we knw that there are ppl suffering. I am not sayin that they can't live better, ofcourse they can.I am not sayin there's harm in sympathesizing. But i mean, happiness is what u choose it to be. U can make it, u can unmake it. No need for God to get involved.
So, she sez, u say God does exist.
I told her i don't personally believe he does. I mean, when we can find happiness and satisfaction we have to look inside. A person who is looking for their soul mate will find them. But if they dunno what they want in their soul mate they can never be happy with what they find. A person to think they are not complete singular, mite think they are with another. But u are born as a person, so why would a person be born incomplete? When all that is taken into account, we are happy individuals. If we are happy within, then wheres the need to look, find God outside? If he exists, then fine...good for him. But I'd rather he have nothin to do with my life, i'd prefer to find my own happiness- another story, borrowed frm the series called LOST.
A moth, is in a cocoon. It struggles to get out of the cocoon. Anyone watching it can help its struggle, we cld always take a penknife and cut it open gently so that it can emerge. It will emerge, pretty. But it will not survive, because it's not strong enough to face the outside.
So i want to be strong on my own, i don't need God. I think he needs me to remember him, for if no one remembered God....he wouldn't exist.
