God

Shri Ravindranath Tagore on God

  1.  Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man.
  2. God loves me when I sing. God respects me when I work.
  3. God, the Great Giver, can open the whole universe to our gaze in the narrow space of a single land.

Shri Swami Vivekanand

  1. Bhakti is a higher thing higher than even desiring heaven. The idea of heaven is of a place of intensified enjoyment. How can that be God?
  2. Bhakti-Yoga is the path of systematised devotion for the attainment of union with the Absolute. It is the easiest and surest path to religion or realisation.
  3. You cannot believe in GOD until you believe in yourself.
  4. FEEL like Christ and you will be a Christ; feel like Buddha and you will be a Buddha. It is feeling that is the life, the strength, the vitality, without which no amount of intellectual activity can reach God.
  5. THE more we come out and do good to others, the more our hearts will be purified, and God will be in them.
  6. THERE is nothing beyond God, and the sense enjoyments are simply something through which we are passing now in the hope of getting things.
  7. IT is good to love God for hope of reward, but it is better to love God for love's sake; and the prayer goes: O Lord, I do not want wealth nor children nor learning. If it be Thy will, I shall go from birth to birth. But grant me this, that I may love thee without the hope of reward--'love'' unselfishly for love's sake.
  8. MY nature is love Him. And therefore I love. I do not pray for any-thing. I do not ask for anything. Let Him place me wherever He likes. I must love Him for love's sake. I can not trade in love.
  9. GOD is the ever-active providence, by whose power systems after systems are being evolved out of chaos, made to run for a time and again destroyed.
  10. WHY should a man be miserable even here in the reign of a just and merciful God?
  11. TO worship God even for the sake of salvation or any other reward is equally degenerate. Love knows no reward. Give your love unto to God, but do not ask anything in return even from Him through pray.
  12. You have read - 'Look upon your mother as God; look upon your father as God.' But I say. The poor, the illiterate, the ignorant, the afflicted - let these be your God. Know that the service to these alone is the highest religion.
  13. We believe that every being is divine, is God. Every soul is a sun covered over with clouds of ignorance; the difference between soul and soul is owing to the difference in density of these layers of clouds.
  14. Those who work at a thing heart and soul not only achieve success in it but through their absorption in that they also realize the supreme truth—Brahman. Those who work at a thing with their whole heart receive help from God.
  15. Why are people so afraid? The answer is that they have made themselves helpless and dependent on others. We are so lazy, we do not want to do anything ourselves. We want a Personal God, a Savior or a Prophet to do everything for us.
  16. All that is real in me is God; all that is real in God is I. The gulf between God and me is thus bridged. Thus by knowing God, we find that the kingdom of heaven is within us.
  17. We have to go back to philosophy to treat things as they are. We are suffering from our own karma. It is not the fault of God. What we do is our own fault, nothing else. Why should God be blamed?
  18. Stand as a rock; you are indestructible. You are the Self (atman), the God of the universe.
  19. I am the thread that runs through all these pearls," and each pearl is a religion or even a sect thereof. Such are the different pearls, and God is the thread that runs through all of them; most people, however, are entirely unconscious of it.
 
Others
  1. "GOD" is most accurately defined as the personification of ignorance, representing everything that we do not yet understand. -Kenneth Marsalek.

  2. Men create gods after their own image, not only with regard to their form but with regard to their mode of life. -Aristotle.

  3. Once people get hung up on theology, they're lost to sanity forever. More people have been killed in the name of Jesus Christ than any name in history of the world. -Gore Vidal.

  4. It may be that our role on this planet is not to worship God, but to create him. -Arthur C Clarke.

  5. Having chosen our course, without guile and with pure purpose, let us renew our trust in God, and go forward without fear and with manly hearts. -Abraham Lincoln.
