Why did I come here?
So, last night around 3am, I was lying there with my eyes open, thinking that there is this world and there are all these religions.
And everyone has been explained that if you go on pilgrimages, do charity, austerity, then after you die, you will go to heaven. So I started thinking that whatever that creator has created, is it pure or not?
The creator doesn't have hands like you and I do, but he also has hands and he has created this entire universe. So, that supreme-being, who himself has created the entire universe- even this earth, on which you are alive now, who created this? Was there a middle-man who created this?
Did someone come from somewhere else, to create this earth? My point is, that this earth too is created by that same supreme-being. So if he has created this, then isn't this heaven? Meaning, wherever his hands would touch. How are pilgrimages formed? Wherever his feet touch, wherever his hands touch, will become sacred. Forget the hands, feet legs, nose, ears- He has created this (earth). So many times he would have touched this, with the hands that he has. And you don't consider this heaven. What beliefs have you got? But people don't consider this heaven, they don't consider this existence to be heaven. All they think is that I'm here and I need to do good deeds, and if I do good deeds, then after I die, I will find heaven.
What is good deed? Ask Muslim, he'll say something else. Ask a Hindu, he'll say something different. Right? Ask a Christian, he'll say something different. They will endorse their books, their scriptures- "This is what is written, this is what is written".
But what is it that you have experienced in your life? Most important thing! What is your experience? Even with all these things, why does the human ask this one question: Why have I come here? Everyone asks. I say that there are two kinds of people- those who have asked, and those who haven't- and those who haven't, will. When they get a beating on their heads, then they will ask. And those who have asked, have searched. So even after reading numerous religious scriptures that there are, why does a human still ask, why did I come here?
