How to connect and/or talk to God?

“Have you really seen Shri Krishna? Have you talked to him? Can we really talk to God? Will God reply? If it was pure imagination, how come you revealed few unknown secrets?”

These are some questions that reached me after reading my article “Interview with Krishna” ( https://udaypai.in/interview-with-krishna/ ). Many people asked me similar question “Can we connect to God?”

My answer is “Yes and No”

Science knows that there is a consciousness which manifests into the whole universe. Religions call it God and describes it the way blind men narrate elephant. Philosophers call it collective consciousness. An atheist calls it energy. The Star Wars call it ‘The Force’. Enlightened masters call it The Infinite. Our ancient Vedic sages realized it as “Brahmam”. For ease of use let’s also call it God.

“Yes, you can connect to God, in a way, for sure. Whether you both talk or not solely depends upon you” I said.

“Uday, did you meet Krishna or was it just imagination?” this was the question asked by Arunima Madam, a retired teacher.

My answer would again be “Yes and No”. But I told her this: “Madam, you can try first and let me know the answer.”

“How can I do it?”

“First, let’s use logic and rationale here. You pray to god, right?”

“Yes…”

“What makes you think that God can hear your prayer? If you say God can hear your prayer, then how come he cannot talk, touch, see or eat? What makes you believe that God only has one sensory organ – that too only for hearing your prayers? How can God possess only one selective sensory organ? It doesn’t make any sense. So, logically speaking, a ‘hearing God’ can talk too…”

“Yes Uday, I also can believe that God can talk. But how come I can’t hear what he says?” she snapped.

“Which is your mobile phone Madam?”

“Samsung galaxy. This is a present from my son.” She has shown her smartphone.

“Who is your network service provider? Or whose connection you are using?”

“I am using BSNL connection…”

“Do you get coverage everywhere?”

“Almost, but in some places it goes out of coverage area.”

“If you don’t have network, what can you do with the phone?”

“I can still take photos and listen to music”

“And?”

“I can also use it for basic functions like calculator, calendar, torch etc…”

“Yes, but without network the phone has very limited use. If there is no network connection, you can’t talk to anyone through the phone, you can’t hear also. Right?”

“Yes…”

“If there is connection, the same phone has unlimited usage (especially if a latest 4G or data package available) which is limited only by your ideas…You can do a million of things with the phone…”

“Yes Uday – today’s world revolves around mobile phones. You can do almost everything if you have connection.” she said.

“A human being is like stand-alone phone with hardware (body) and operation system software (brain or mind). A stand-alone human has just basic and limited functions. But when a man gets connected to the cosmic network, he becomes limitless. He can get connected to the vastness of cosmic consciousness or the infinite.”

“Can we receive and send messages to God like that phone?”
