In the present world which we are living is filled with spiritual gurus. Each day the number is rising. But does people gets really spiritual? I always felt that these spiritual gurus don't want to be just gurus they all want to be the divine power. Though they don't admit it but their way of doing things is like that. From my childhood onwards I don't believe in such human gods. My relatives are followers of one or the other Such human gods. I used to have a hard time debating to such hardcore believers. I did my schooling from a school which was under the trust of Sree Narayana Guru. He is the only guru who inspired me. Now people will be thinking that I am being a hypocrite. But I have an explanation for this thing too. Unlike all the other so-called Gurus he is the one who told the people not to worship him. Also, he didn't allow people to be exploited with their beliefs. But the people who called themselves as his followers itself exploited him. Those people did all those things which Sree Narayana Guruji himself restricted the people to do. He was the guru who stands for the minorities when education was forbidden for the poor and lower caste people. Earlier in India, all the privileges were only given to the upper class and the lower class people were totally neglected. It was considered as a sin to educate or see or touch a lower caste person. They used to punish the lower caste people severely when by mistake they hear any "Vedas". At that time only Sree Narayana Guru came. He didn't come to the life of the people as a God but only as a Guru. Still, people consider him as Guru and not as god. Only the people who really don't know what he is consider him as a god. Sree Narayana Guru was the one who told the people that "There is only one caste, one god and one religion for man". But it was later misinterpreted as "there is only one caste, one god and one religion for one man". A smart change for the exploiting men. He even was against the idea of going to temples, churches and mosques. He was the one who kept a mirror and asked the people to look at it and pray. With that, he meant first you realize the god within you. God is living inside us and not in stones and all. We shouldn't go in search of god to anywhere. God is with us and within us. But when he died the people who are called as the followers of him shrewdly used it to make a different group. He taught us to live in unity but soon after his death, his followers itself started to form a group in his name. I don't know whether we could call them as his followers. They did all the things against his teachings.
Now the state in Kerala is even pathetic. People are selling god. Even they are making news out of it. The trust and belief of the people are exploited here. But I can't blame these human gods at first hand. Are they the one who is wrong or the people who encourage them with their foolish belief. From my childhood onwards I believed that god gives us everything. But nowadays there are a lot of exchange offers for gods. I don't get that idea. These people request to god for things and will offer him back small things like 5 rupees, candles, etc. By doing this you are actually insulting the god and your belief. God doesn't need anything from us in return as a tribute. He gives us everything. He just needs our love and trust on him. We are all god's children, we can ask him things also consider him as our best friend. We can share many things with him. I feel that the problem is with today's society. Because previously there were no such human gods around us. Our busy society lead all these stuff. If you have a loving family you could share your things among them. They will love you unconditionally and will help you out with all the problems. You don't have to search for such human gods for peace. If there is love care and peace in our family that will be enough. But today we all don't have time for each other. All are busy in running. But no one knows for what we run. Everyone is ambitious. Many communication gadgets are available for us now. But that made us more distant from the person who is sitting next to us. We don't mind in spending money for the human gods also we are ready to spend hours in waiting for such human gods. Why can't you people spend time with the people who really cares you and loves you other than who pretends that they love and care you?
I believe my whole lifetime in Sree Narayan Guruji's preaching and I follow it from the heart and not with misconceptions. Don't be fooled yourself with your neglection. Realize yourself and the god within you. True love is the solution for all your problems and not human gods. Open your eyes people. Stay loved.
