God is the creator, maintainer and annihilator of everything that exists on this earth; whether it is the human beings, the animals, earth, water, air, ether, trees, sky or the environment that we see and live in. We are nothing more than mere toys in HIS hands. But we all commit a huge mistake of forgetting the reason and the source of our existence and start considering ourselves the creator of everything. Sadly, this is the biggest blunder we all commit and till the time we realize our true reality, we are wasting our existence on this earth; creating a bundle of sins, instead. So, the sooner we start accepting HIS presence and the transcendental powers HE possesses, the better it is for us.
After getting the enlightenment of HIS powerful existence, the next important thing we all must do is to incessantly thank HIM for all that HE has bestowed on us. Our strength to see, hear, talk, walk, smell, taste and enjoy all the gifts of life are unlimited ways in which God blesses us and we must have its awareness and be thankful for it.
Leave aside the bigger things, we should show our gratitude for even the smallest blessings that we receive in life. Each day should begin and end by thanking the Almighty. As we get up, our first prayer should be ,” Thank you for everything Lord, my gratitude for another day in life’’. And before we slip into the bed, we should say,” Thank you my Lord for everything that I could do during the day”. Each breath of ours should be thankful to the Power above to be able to lead a normal life; because if we try to look around, we will realize the amount of suffering and pain that people are going through and will then understand the degree of our blessings.
Along with showing our gratitude, we should also look for ways of repaying God for all that we are receiving from HIM. Though we do not possess the power to repay God, but can at least do our bit by indulging in the acts of humanity which are dear to God.
All human beings are children of God; some are fortunate to enjoy all the comforts of life but there are many who are less fortunate and are bereaved of many comforts and if we are better off than them, then we should think of ways of helping them .We should be kind, considerate, thoughtful and passionate towards them, should feel their pain and should try to reduce it by helping them in the best possible way. Small gestures of kindness within the sphere of our ability that we indulge in each day, is the best way of repaying the God and is truly appreciated by HIM.
