It is a pleasure participating in this brilliant conversation- contest!
Let me explain first! I was very much frustrated and in very low spirits then, feeling totally dejected and unhappy. My personal, professional and emotional states were in a total chaos. I was trying to comprehend as to what/who it was that was rocking my cradle so violently; only to discover that it was none else but the God Almighty Himself. I, then decided to go straight to the source, straight to the greatest victimizer of all. I decided to converse with Him. I sent Him a prayer of pleas and urgings. It was a spiteful, passionate, and full of confusions, contortions, and condemnations prayer- sheet. Then after, God began conversing with me which is being reproduced below!
God- Do you really want an answer to all your woes or are you just venting?
Me- Both. I am venting " sure as hell" about a lot of things happening to me all at a time and wishing to hear answers to them if there are any answers.
God- You are "sure as hell "…about a lot of things. But wouldn't it be nice to be "Sure as heaven"?
Me- What is that supposed to mean? Don't you confuse me, and give me some answers to the questions haunting me since long and begging for your answers desperately.
God- And what are they? You can ask your questions that is eating away the vitals of your mind.
Me- They are many! But just to begin with, why do some people, take Christ for example, seem to hear more of your commandments and communications than others?
God- Because some people are actually willing to listen! They are willing to hear, and they are willing to remain open to the communications even when the going gets tough or crazy, or downright wrong.
Me-We should listen to God even when what is being said is wrong?
God- Yes. Especially when it seems wrong! If you think you are right about everything, who needs to talk to God? Go ahead and act on all that you know. But notice that you have all been doing that since Time began. And look at what a mess you have made of this world and yourself?
Me- There is so much I wish to ask to you, so much I want to ask, I don't know where to begin. For example, why is that you do not reveal yourself?
God- I have done so over and over again. In fact I am doing so again right now.
Me- No. I mean by a method of revelation that is incontrovertible? Which cannot be denied?
God- Such as?
Me- Such as appearing right now before my eyes.
God- I am doing so right now.
God- Everywhere you look.
Me- No, what I mean is in an incontrovertible way. In a way no man can deny.
God - what way would that be? In what form or shape would you have Me appear?
Me- in the form and shape that you actually have!
God- That would be impossible I don't have no form-no shape. I am what I am not .It is from the am-notness that I come and to it I always return. It matters not in what form or in what manner I reveal myself—whatever manner I choose and whatever form I take, none will be incontrovertible.
Me- God, please, tell me do you really answer prayers?
God- Prayers? But, you will not have that for which you ask, nor can you have anything you want. This is because your very request is a statement of lack, and your saying that you want a thing only works to produce the precise experience—wanting –in your reality. The correct prayer therefore, is never a prayer of supplication, but a prayer of gratitude. When you thank God in advance for that which you choose to experience in your reality, you, in effect acknowledge that is there. And you get it after your prayers.
Me-If you are so all perfect and so all loving, why have you created pestilence and famine, war and disease, earthquake and tornados and hurricanes and all manners of natural disaster, deep personal disappointments, and worldwide calamity.
God- The answer lies in the deeper mystery of the universe and the highest meaning of life. Knowing is a divine state, yet the grandest joy is in being. Being is achieved only after experiencing which is what the "Holy trinity" is. These are things most necessarily created for you to gain experience.
Me- There are those who say that life is a school, that we are here to learn specific lessons, that once we graduate, we can go on to largest pursuits, no longer shackled by the body. Is this correct?
God- That is not true.
Me- Life is not a school?
Me- We are not here to learn lessons?
Me- Then why are we here?
God- sees son, this requires a while to explain and the time allotted to you is merely 3 minutes only. How can those 3 minutes contain them all?
Me- Okay then. Good Bye, Lord, but, promise me to come back again!
God- Be coming back soon to you, son! Bye!
