My Yogi-Friends

1.

The other day I interviewed three God-realized souls. X, Y and Z. I said to X, “Please tell me what happened when you met God for the first time.”

When I met God for the first time, He immediately fell in love with me. But I doubted. I hesitated to bask in the infinite effulgence of His Light. I suspected. I suspected my inner vision.

I said to Y, “Please tell me what happened when you met God for the first time.”

Because of my long forgotten self, God shed endless tears of joy when I met Him for the first time. I kissed and kissed His Feet of endless Compassion.

I said to Z, “Please tell me what happened when you met God for the first time.”

When I met God for the first time, with His Eyes He immediately fed my hunger of millennia. I fed Him with the heart’s endless cry.

Now the three God-realised souls said to me: “You have interviewed us. You have to now tell us what happened when you met God for the first time.”

I was more than ready and eager to tell my Yogi-Friends about my first meeting with God. But God immediately commanded my silence and demanded my surrender. After some time, God on my behalf said to my Yogi-Friends; “When he and I met for the first time, we stabbed each other. Yes we stabbed each other. Stabbed with what? With love, love and love. Is it not true?”

“God. what am I going to do with You? You are telling a lie. I stabbed You with my brooding ignorance. You stabbed me with Your ever-compassionate and all-liberating love."

God said: “No sir, you have totally forgotten about our first meeting. What am I going to do with your feeble memory?”

"You are my Lord of immediate Forgiveness. You are my Lord of eternal Concern. You are my Lord of constant Compassion."
