No need to search elsewhere for GodThose who insist on praying before and after every action have no idea that the action should be a meditation to God. Actions that sanctify the feet are more acceptable in front of God than the lips exercise that sanctify the words. Even the concept of God is negated by the misconception that only written verses and systematic rituals are the means to God's pleasure.
God does not have to be looked at anywhere else. The essence of God is visible in the people and situations we interact with wherever we are. Ishwar is in the neighborhood, Ishwar is the neighbor. Virtues are not only vows but also good deeds that are done for the sake of those who do not want by anyone and for the marginalized, without notice by anyone.
God appears not to those who are distancing away from the fellow beings, but to those who support strangers. How will God consider those who ignore the seekers for refuge?
