How do you contemplate over God's creation?

    How do you contemplate over God's creation?

    The whole universe has been created for our eyes, the creation is so magnificent, creatures are so numerous, how to reflect? What are the practical ways? Is there any limitation of understanding or there are innumerable lessons?

    To contemplate on His creation sages believe in meditation.Wen u are moved by the activites around u,those which affect and creates questions for ourselves we contemplate on him.An incident from my life wen i was in class 7 we used to return home from bus,there were 3 children in old torn clothes trying to grab eatables and one was carrying bundles of grass on his head i questioned myself why don't we respect things that we get and others strive for,why r those of the same age deprived of food while we have good education .Again in my graduation days we were having our seminar when my ears lost its focus to eyes i started watching the electrician who earned meagre,and i felt my thoughts were his.He was looking at the teacher with concentration and sparkle in eyes i felt he might want to see his children at the same position being a part of the seminar.These thoughts create awareness that we have a Mission to fulfill.Some people grow with the feeling of an omnipresent around them while some are lost in the blurring light with their wisdom buried.Contemplating for him means loving his creature and truly there isn't any substitute to helping the needy as the proverb goes "The hands that help are holier than the lips that pray."

      Great pallavi. Thanks. Words from your heart reflects your comtemplating habit. I think by reflecting over the creation of God one must feel proximity with Him. The more you are near to your God, more nearness you feel with the people around.

      You can say anything, but contradictions are unsupportable in the real world.  Faith and reason are opposites.  Reason leads to understanding right and wrong.  Blindness and faith lead to confusion.  One becomes in tune with creation by studying it.

      For me definition of faith is a reasonable belief, anything unreasonable is confusion.The essence of belief is that it has to present its details with regard to right & wrong in a way that suits best to human nature, otherwise faith is just a mir

      Faith is not reasonable.  Right and wrong are determined by what is life and what is against life.  Reason is used to figure out the difference.  Human Nature, generally, is to live.  Living requires self-sustaining action.

      If faith means blind belief, you are right, but for me faith is that which is testified by words & actions, to know the difference between right & wrong one has to have certain parameters & that is what faith defines & here reason pla

      If your God created the Universe, I am sure He gave even words particular definitions.  If you choose to disobey your God and redefine words, even you fail to revere Him.  Faith is blind belief.  Close your eyes as you are doing.

      Your God and mine is the same. Reverence for Him doesnt confine to my limitations of understanding, I have to obey Him as He ought to be obeyed, and keep pleasing Him in a dignified way.This is the only criteria for having taste & sweetness of fa

      There is no evidence of God(s), only creation.  I do not obey any God(s), only the laws of creation.  I do not exist to please God(s), but to live in a dignified manner, cherishing life and reason, not whim and faith.  I live as a man, not a mouse.

      m abdullah javedposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      It’s our conscience that helps us realize the evidence behind creation, right? But how come that’s not helping realize who the Creator is? Obeying laws of the creation means depiction of your inner self that is completely obedient to the Creator.

      Just as a child does not know his father, before he is born, we cannot know the creator(s), before we actually find Him or it or them.  We cannot imagine God into existence.  We must work, learn, seek, live, love, think, but most of all: not lie.

      m abdullah javedposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      ....But the grown up child knows who his father is? The existence of God may not be understandable at this stage but when you start looking at things with heart's eyes you will realise. A God-Centric man only can learn & love in true sense.

      Heart's eyes are human eyes.  They are not magical.  They are human.  All and only human.  Humans love.  Reason is the core of it.  Not mysticism.  Not lies.  Truth comes with work.  Reason should be applied.  Else anything  can be posited.

      Between love & intense love there is only one thing that plays its role,that is keen observation.Look at your parents you will fall in love again,but for such a love one has to have vision & sound reasoning,without which everything appears fi

    Do not be so egotistical as to posit that creation exists for us, but that it exists and how to then see and understand it.  The practical method to understand creation is to actually use one's senses to make sense of it.

      Hi mate, thanks for your response. Whatever we see has a purpose, skies, sun, moon and the earth etc. You know well that all these celestial objects their distance, movements matter a lot. They have been subjected, isn't? For whom? Do you think all t

      jgshorebirdposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      Not sure how to respond in this section, but you mentioned "purpose".  Nobody can determine the purpose.  Unknowable.  Celestial objects mean what?  They are things.

    3. m abdullah javed profile image78
      m abdullah javedposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      Hi, the purpose of creation is evident by their very existence, take any creation, you'll be convinced. Celestial objects are of course things but their functioning reveals their nature and also direct and indirect relationship they have with us.

    4. jgshorebird profile image89
      jgshorebirdposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      That is called a circular argument.  The purpose of creation is not evident.  The creation is evident only, based upon our seeing and being.  One has no relationship with the moon, other that it exists and perhaps that is made of similar atoms.

    5. m abdullah javed profile image78
      m abdullah javedposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      Look at the moon? Don't we have a relationship with it? Ask captain of a ship, dweller of a suburban area? Are not ocean waves safer? Don't you think the movements of sun,moon & earth have direction relation with our wellbeing?

    6. jgshorebird profile image89
      jgshorebirdposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      Since we evolved here, on earth - yes we have a biological relationship with the moon.  This fact does not answer the question: who is or what is or how we came to be.  You are simply pointing out that which exists.  Existence exists.

      jgshorebirdposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      Our existence is only evidence that we exist.  From whence we came, we do not know.  And we cannot answer the question by tickling our navels.  We must seek and find, not "make believe" like children in a dark forest afraid of the stars.

      m abdullah javedposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      We exist because of Creator's mercy. He bestowed in abundance as per our body and spiritual needs. We are highly indebted to Him. With this frame of mind we revere God, it has both fear & love, not by external force but due to His abundant favour

      What is the difference between your God and the ancient Caveman worshiping the river?  And what if I refuse to fear, love and revere your God?  In fact, I would rather rule in hell, than serve in Heaven.

      Faith is blind belief.  Truth is honesty.  Blindness is not truth.  Faith is as ancient as the caveman.  One must actually think in the modern word.  The Dark Ages are over, I hope.  Many in the US chose reason over faith.  Hence our success.

      I can say faith without reason leads to life of a caveman.The right attitude of modern age man is that he should sincerely try to synchronise himsef with the will of his Creator,then his knowledge of right & wrong'll prevent him from blind faith.
