A Vaccum Cleaner Called God

Please God help me! My life is hard and I can’t see a way forward. If you help me God, I promise to pray more.

Words I’m sure are familiar to almost every believer and non believer in God.  As a Buddhist, I don’t accept the God concept, but even I’ve begged for help in times where there’s seemed little hope.  Looking down from my 17th floor window I see road rage from people who feel it’s their ‘God Given’ right to get to work first. Horns beeping, sirens wailing, rushing to traffick accidents.  There’s news on the TV about a girl who left Britain at 15yrs to join ISIS and now wants to come back. The man who got stabbed whilst trying to rescue a stranger in trouble & the political war on Brexit.  So much for a single mind to cope with and its only 7am.  But tonight in the silence of darkness,   down on their knees begging God for forgiveness, to make the child they hit during a fit of road rage pull through. To show mercy on the Jihadi bride & to sort out the problems created by Brexit. They’ll all be there on their knees evading personal responsibility, expecting God to suck up all their problems and absolve them like a Dyson vacuum cleaner. But if their prayers aren’t answered, we all know who’s to blame don’t we?

So here’s today’s discussion thread… If there is indeed a God, why expect him to constantly clean up the carnage created by man/woman?

  1. I think we might agree that we cannot expect him to vacuum up our mess. He cannot, not because he doesn’t exist, care, or want to, but because we would never listen to his answer. There is a internet meme quote thingy going around for a few years now it goes like this. “Prayer is talking to god, meditation is listening”
    How many of us bother to truly listen to our loved ones and friends let alone sit in meditation and hear what the universe has to say to us?
