There I was, standing high on top of a mountain
There I was, standing high on top of a mountain. Standing alone and feeling the gentle breeze .My friends were all left behind and I wondered if I was lost!
I shouted and tried to find out where my friends were. Once, twice, thriceâ€¦I tried, but no reply. I sat there waiting. No one came up for many hours. Where are all these people gone? Not a single clue of their presence. I realize I have come on the wrong track and getting back to the right track seems almost impossible. I can see no way to get back with my friends. I kept thinking of a solution to my problem. What do I do? How do I go? Again I shouted. This time, at God. I called for him, “dear God. Can you hear me?” “I need your help” and so I kept shouting. All in vain. No response. Silence! The only sound I heard wasâ€¦â€¦â€¦MY ECHOES! It seemed â€¦â€¦ like several voices shouting together. I kept saying, “Oh God! I have so much faith in you. You are the one who is always there for everyone. You help everyone in there difficulties. Help me too. Please God help me” I kept repeating these sentences. God didn’t replyâ€¦â€¦â€¦ he gave me no clue. “Oh God! I have so much of faith in you. You are the only one who is always there to help everyoneâ€¦”
Then all of a sudden I heard someone saying, “Yes, my child. I am always there for you and here I am talking to you.” I was shocked. Did I really hear something as such or was it just my pretension? Lets give another tryâ€¦â€¦â€¦I asked, “Dear God, as you know, I have got fixed into a problem. I have got to reach to my friends or at least get down the mountain. Please tell me what should I do??? Only you can help me.”
And to my surprise someone did reply. It was God himself! He replied, “Oh son of the Earth! There is a way and I could tell you thatâ€¦butâ€¦can you take it as a challenge? Can you find the way on your own? As, if I were to do everything for everyone in the world then how could anyone have had experienced the best parts of the life??”
“But Godâ€¦” I was about to say further and he interrupted. “There is nothing like “but”MY DEAR CHILD! Life is a challenge; take it. You like adventures don’t you? I think you do and that’s why you are on this excursion to the mountain. Remember I am always there for those who have faith in them and me too. But everything else, has to be done by you yourself and just see the result.”
“You will receive the total satisfaction” AND “You will be the happiest person of the world”
