TITLE: How does God look like?
By Mili sanka


The whole place was crowded with adults, kids and old people from all the four corners of the town. The prayer ended and Kathy was holding her daughter’s hand in order not to miss from the crowd. Kathy and her daughter Rosie at last got in to their car.
They are on their way home traveling along with the cool breeze and admiring nature’s beauty.

“Mommy, who is this being called God?” asked 15 year old Rosie.

“He is consciousness, energy and pure selflessness.” Kathy answered.

“How does God look like mommy?” asked Rosie.

Mommy thought for a few minutes and then said-

“The globe is His Face; the Sun and the Moon are His two Eyes. When one eye is asleep the other eye dispenses the light to the world. His nose is the center place of the Air; His mouth is the heart of the emergence of the divine Sound. His ears are the openings which await the Prayers of the beings. His throat is the center of Truth. His shoulders bear the weight of our Sins and his heart represents the Life on this earth plane. His stomach is the Universe and His two hands are the very embodiments of Selflessness and Righteousness and His legs tread on the path of Love and Peace. His feet help us cross this ocean of worldly existence and the fragrance one feels as he walks is divinity.”

“Mommy, your description looks beautiful but can’t we feel His divine touch? How can we feel him in times of sorrow?” questioned Rosie.

“Rosie, in times of sorrow, when the cool breeze touches your cheeks, realize it is God who is helping you find solace in it. When the rain drops touch and cool the ground heated with the rays of the Sun, it is then you have to realize it is God consoling the dry earth with His love of rain. When an infant cries to its peaks and stops at the touch of his mother’s hand, it is then realize God is caressing her. When you have immersed yourself with mistakes and when your little heart is heavy with the feeling of guilt, it is then realize you have stepped on to the first step of God’s forgiveness. When you see the world in distress and when you really feel the pain of the deserted hearts of the people, it is then realize that God is healing them and showering His love and grace through you. When your eyes shed a tear drop at the pangs of hunger of the little ones, realize God is feeding them with your tear drop.”

“Can I truly see God physically with my eyes mommy?” asked Rosie wiping her tears.

“If only you have faith, you can see Him, feel Him and speak to Him. He is right before you waiting to be invoked but we seem to be so busy sometimes that our eyes go blind and our ears go deaf despite having him before us. He is Omnipresent and Omniscient; it is we who have to learn to live wisely as His children” answered mommy.

Rosie’s voice is wrapped in peace and she said- “Thank you, mommy for your great explanation on God. I shall retain it in my heart.’

“God's Love is like the comfort of the cool breeze on a sunny day.”

A good visual with a poetic flow. This would have been a lot better without any mention of Rosie, as no 15 yr. old would talk like this.

I enjoyed your careful descriptions in this story.

Some dialog roadblocks here; I agree a 15yr. old probably is not in this picture. Keep writing,with work this will get there.

A 15 year old? Hardly. .. and the Title? Shouldn't it be WHO does God look like?...or What does God look like? Needs a little more work.
