God is Truth and Love

To me God is Truth and Love; God is ethics and morality; God is fearlessness. God is the source of Light and Life and yet He is above and beyond all these.  God is conscience.

He is even the atheism of the atheist. For in His boundless love God permits the atheist to live. He is the searcher of hearts. He transcends speech and reason. He knows us and our hearts better than we do ourselves. He does not take us at our word for He knows that we often do not mean it, some knowingly and others unknowingly.

He is a personal God to those who need His personal presence.  He is embodied to those who need His touch.  He is the purest essence.  He simply is to those who have faith.  He is all things to all men.  He is in us and yet above and beyond us. 

One may banish the word “God” from the Congress but one has no power to banish the thing itself.  What is a solemn affirmation, if it is not the same thing as in the name of God

And surely conscience is but a poor and laborious paraphrase of the simple combination of three letters called God. He cannot cease to be because hideous immoralities or inhuman brutalities are committed in His name. He is long suffering. He is patient but He is also terrible. He is the most exacting personage in the world and the world to come.

He metes out the same measure to us as we mete out to our neighbors — men and brutes. With Him ignorance is no excuse.  And withal He is ever forgiving for He always gives us the chance to repent. He is the greatest democrat the world knows, for He leaves us “unfettered” to make our own choice between evil and good.

He is the greatest tyrant ever known, for He often dashes the cup from our lips and under cover of free will leaves us a margin so wholly inadequate as to provide only mirth for Himself at our expense.

Therefore it is that Hinduism calls it all His sport — Lila, or calls it all an illusion — Maya.  We are not.  He alone Is.  And if we will be, we must eternally sing His praise and do His will. Let us dance to the tune of His Bansi — flute and all would be well.

God is Truth and Love ~ Mahatma Gandhi
