The Universe and Me

By Joseph Mattappally on 02-08-2017

I’m an Indian, born and brought up in a land of diversities. Whenever I hear a shout for equality, I ask myself if such a thing is ever possible. God could be Omnipotent, Omnipresent or Omniscient may be the creator of this omnivorous mankind too. But, can he ever create two equal situations or two equal things anywhere in this Universe? I don’t think so. Not two equal globes or stars haven’t been discovered. I haven’t seen two leaves or two trees of equal feature either.

The moment I realized that equality is a superficial concept, I came to the conclusion that it is diversity that we need for our growth. The more different we are from another the more we will tend to follow a personality of our own.

The more we accept the ‘present’ the way it appears to us the more we will be filled with gratitude, the only emotion that goes with the energy of love.

The prayer that God answered us, is the same prayer many others have been praying but went unanswered. The road we use safely every day is the same road on which many others were killed.

The place in which God blessed us, is the same place other people also worship Him, but their lives are still in discord. The bed we used in the hospital, from where we got healed is the same bed many other people died on. The rain that made our fields produce good crops, is the same rain that destroyed someone’s field. The same sun hardens the clay and melts the butter. The same man, the same wind, the same river, the same……..Yes I have a got a different mother for myself a different father for myself; all that I got are different. My Universe too !
