GOD: Hello. Did you call me? Me: Called you? No… Who is this? GOD: This is God here. I heard your prayers. So I thought I will chat with you. Me: I do pray. Just makes me feel good. I am actually busy now. I am in the midst of something. GOD: What are you busy at? Ants are busy too. Me: Don’t know. But I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic. It’s rush hour all the time. GOD: Sure. Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you results. Activity consumes time. Productivity frees it. Me: I understand. But I still can’t figure out. By the way, I was not expecting YOU to buzz me on instant messaging chat. GOD: Well, I wanted to resolve your fight for time, by giving you some clarity. In this internet era, I wanted to reach you through the medium you are comfortable with.

According to Vedic tradition, there are 2 distinct paths to travel in life – one is the path of renunciation, the other is the path of householder. Path is renunciation is called Sannyasa or Brahmacharya which is taken by people who wish to renounce worldly and materialistic pursuits and dedicate their lives to spiritual pursuits. The path of householder (Grihastha) is choosing a married life with a family unit. Whichever path you may choose, both paths require us to work on self so that it ultimately leads us to the space of Eternal Consciousness.

We all know that in many orthodox societies and religious communities, the gay, lesbian, transgender are not socially accepted as they are deemed as unnatural, something that is going against the law of nature. They are often viewed as the outcaste in society and many have to resort to hiding their true sexual orientation and living double lives.
Many are trapped by the rules of morality defined by society or religious community. Ostracised by mainstream society, some end up destroying their lives due to a lack of clarity on this aspect of life. What is the right undestanding from a spiritual perspective?
