There is nothing more amazing than “I am God’s and God is Mine”
God has revealed to us in the Gita “Mameva Ansh” – You are My very
own. He has also said “Ishvar Ansh” – You are a part of Me, in the
Ramayana. The truth is that our relationship is only with God. There
is no relationship with anyone else, at all. Only with God. That
is all there is to it. Therefore accept with a firm determination
“I am God’s and God is mine.” He remains with us forever.
If we accept this with a firm conviction, progress will be very
quick. In whatever life form (yoni) we travel, God is there with us.
Who else is there with us all the time? Who else is like God? There
is no other relationship, like the relationship with God. Only God
is my very own and I am only God’s. All others will come and go,
absolutely everything in nature will come and go. Is there anyone
who will stay with us? Not a thing, not a person, not a group, not
an organization, not a position, nothing, absolutely nothing!
Everything will disperse away. This is what ultimately hits home. No
one else is mine; Only God is my very own. Be happy! Be joyful !
This realization is so amazing, so great, so extraordinary, so
filled with nectar. It is our own! Only God is. And nothing else
Is. This is the essence. Accept with firm conviction. It is the
essence of all. I am God’s and God is mine. Just like a little child
says, mother is mine. He says this even to his older brother, “Ma
is mine.” I can order her around. Similarly God is mine and I am
God’s. And no one else is mine. You will be entirely uplifted.
Liberated ! Only Bhagavaan (God) remains with us forever. Whatever
life form we take, He will be ever present. Nothing else will be
there with us. Not a single body form that we have had. Meerabai
says “Mere toh Giridhar Gopal, Dusero na koyi.” (Only Giridhar
Gopal is Mine, no one else is.” Meerabai’s points are
extraordinary. This is such a great point, and we will not hear it
in many places. The truth is that there is nothing that is ours.
Only God remains with us forever, in whatever life form we take.
None of these life forms (bodies) will stay with us. Such an amazing
point is revealed to us by God.
Whether we accept or not, is your wish. It is up to us whether we
accept! We have complete freedom. We are independent in what we
want to accept. This is such sweet truth, that God never leaves us.
He does not leave anyone, even if we criticize, complaint, hate Him,
or are ungrateful towards Him. Whatever we want to believe, we can
believe, because we are independent in our beliefs. But there is
nothing more amazing than God is mine and I am God’s. But the
devotees of God, only believe in God. At all times if we remain firm
on this point, we will be filled with everlasting joy.
“Aisa abhimaan jaaye nahi bhore, mein sewak, Raghupati, pati more,”
says Tulsidasji in Ramayana. Truly a liberating thought. This is
such a loving, such a sweet, such a friendly, likeable point. It is
an extraordinary point. He never leaves us. Even if you destroy His
name, you speak evil of Him, do everything against His will, then
too, He never leaves you. Whether you believe or not, it is
entirely up to you, as you are entirely free. I am God’s and God is
mine. What a joyful thought. Let us have this thought at all times
and see, the joyful feeling thereafter. This is truly a liberating
thought, one that will benefit us immensely.
Therefore remain ever joyful. There is no one that is like God, no
one has ever been, can ever be, it is not possible to be. Realizing
this remain in joy at all times. Only Bliss and Bliss alone.
Whoever believes and accepts this, he will be eternally blissful and
joyful. God is “sarva samarth” Almighty, All capable. More so
than anyone else, therefore what is the delay? Simply have a
relationship with God. This illumination is also received from
Bhagavaan. No one is like him, as all else will die, the kings,
the ministers, the friends, the family, the neighbors, All! You
will not find a master like him. All in one (mother, father,
sister, brother, friend, lover, everything). In anant Brahmaand,
(infinite Universes) there has not been anyone like Him.
