    The day I had a tryst with God - innervoice@hindustantimes.com

    That day I shook hands with God.

    On a cold winter morning as I was lying in the operation theatre in a dimly-lit room, I tried to remain neutral. I had realised that negative thoughts did nothing to help the human body.

    In fact, medically, such a state of mind is extremely harmful in the sense that the body releases certain hormones which obstruct the process of healing. But it is extremely difficult to remain positive after perpetually difficult exposures in life. So, I adopted the middle path of being neutral. If the present process works, fine; if it doesn't, I shall cross the bridge as and when it comes.

    At that point I noticed a team of people near me setting up the structure of the operation process ahead. My mind was absolutely blank for a few seconds then. Just then I saw him enter the OT and speak to the team covering me on all sides. In a few minutes everyone left except him. Just before he was to start his work, he came to me and asked me how I was feeling. I nodded and spontaneously my hand reached out towards him, and he caught it with both his hands. Before I could say anything, he said, "have faith, it would work out fine."

    Within those fractions of seconds when we were holding hands with eye contact, the tremendous power of healing exchanged hands.

    Those seconds remain immortalised in my subconscious mind, which resulted in a few things changing forever thereafter. In retrospect, I firmly believe that in that one instant my never-ending pain and agony made way for newer happiness, joy and hope. Few people in this world have the ability to irrevocably change the life of others. I just met one such person that morning.

    To all those facing adverse and difficult times, I have just one thing to say. Hang on a little more. Help will come your way, even if a little late.

    All that you need to do is to be optimistic and determined.

    I have had some hardship in my life. I became very angry and decided to leave all things Sikh behind me. I have made almost ever mistake that a human being can make. Often these were not even mistakes, they were on-purposes. I chopped off my hair, I threw away my kakkars. I smoked, I drank, I tried to eat halal meat. I married a Christian. I did everything I knew to get rid of my Amrit. I turned my back on everything I knew to be good.

    Then one day, I met a sad, demented, old Sikh man acting irrationally and endangering himself in the parking lot of my apartment building. Some basic decency still in me forced me to help the crazy old man and that was the beginning of my return. The story is in my personal blog, sometimes -2, post named Baba ji. sometimes - 2: Baba Ji

    God shows up at odd times in odd ways. (And, of course, if we remember who we really are, we know that any separation from God - by whatever name - is only apparent.)

    Vaheguru!

    Chardi kala!

    Mai ji,

    That was a great post. I just do not know how to respond to your posts.

    Or, perhaps the doctor was saying to have faith in him because he also knew that The Source of ALL had prepared him to perform the operation.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
