HUMAN GODS

I am not going for a controversy, I am not going to write anything about incarnations either. Recently, I happened to hear some people who consider themselves as super-human, or who assumes themselves of having some super power. They may produce something from the air. They may show some miracles, or they may vanish and appear all on a sudden. We may see lots of devotees with them, we may wonder about the followers that they have.

Some of them are doing charities, some of them have hospitals, schools, or other charitable organizations. They may be preaching about love, kindness, mercy and service. Some are doing philanthropic activities and some do services to the man kind. But are they real gods

I don’t think so. It is true that, they are philanthropists and they are admired and respected. But, I believe in only one God; that is on the unseen power that guides us and protects us. There is the power that revolves our earth. the power that gives us both sorrows and happiness, there is the power that consoles us and shields us from dangers. It is the God; not the super power. A true believer can be a philanthropist, he can serve the community, he can love the world and the society, he can live peacefully without the embrace of the human gods.

My son happened to see a photo of one human being who is worshiped by a lot, that person’s followers, adorn his/ her path with flowers and lighten the lamps under his/ her feet. He asked me, mother, how could a human being bless other human beings like gods do? What is his/ her power? I told him, if we should have firm belief on God, we won’t need such human gods, we should find solace only in God;we don’t want to follow these human gods.

They should be respected for their philanthropy, but not worshiped. They are only human beings like each one of us, they may have more knowledge, for that they should be admired, but not worshiped.
