👉 Who Do You Worship – The Divine or the Devil?

Man misidentifies himself as the physical body. Although he has herd something like ‘he has a soul that is different from the body’ but does not quite believe it or is not even able to imagine it. If most of us were not living under this illusion about unity of the self with the living body, this land (India) of great rishis would not have become home to vast spread corruption and confusion. It was this sacred land where Lord Krishna had preached Bhagvad Gita to Arjuna and reminded him that he is not the body. As we have totally forgotten this fact and never bother to know about our own “self”, how could we know the Omnipresent Self, the God?

We are living in a state of utter ignorance and darkness. Whatever suits our deluded convictions or convinces our selfish intellect, that has become the definition of God for us. It is like considering a rope to be a snake because of lack of light. Indeed the rope resembles the shape of a snake and both would look alike if kept at a dark place. But, as we all know they are not the same. It is only our illusion because of which we might confuse one with the other. It is a pity that this is what we the ‘intelligent beings’ have done today by regarding the devil as the divine.

Its time we awaken and ponder over our reality. We should attempt to realize that – the soul is sublime; it is not perceivable by the body or the materialistic means.
