Question: Is it possible to actually curse God, or is the action of this person just a cry of the soul?

Sri Chinmoy: A cry of the soul will never curse God. The individual soul will always cry to become fully united with the Supreme. The soul is always one with the Supreme. It tries to inspire the heart, the mind and the body to run toward the Supreme. The soul will never curse, because it knows that whatever the Supreme does is for the best in the human. How can the soul curse when it knows that everything is done by God to help the soul become strong and divinely powerful?

An unlit person, an obscure mind, does not know the operation of the Supreme’s Will, and that is why this man gets a kind of frustration or an inner disgust. Then he starts cursing. Because he is blind, because his mind is obscure, he finds fault with the Supreme’s Will. The soul cannot do this. The soul is already one with God. The soul lives in light. How can the soul find fault with the Light Infinite when it knows that it is bathing in the Light of the Supreme? The mind does not know all this. The ignorant and obscure mind will deny the existence of God vehemently, because it is unable to see God inside or around itself.
