Often I question myself
WHY is it that only in times of trouble we remember God so vehemently?
I understand that he/she is there at all times and is looking upon us and is taking note of all the good and the bad things, but still why does the realization come only when something goes wrong?

Like you want something really badly and start praying that it works out..

Isn't that being selfish?

when the kid is hungry going to mom/dad can be considered selfish ? cant because parents are there to cater to the needs of their children. The child is hungry but its asking for say lays im just making it up...parents then listen to the child but only give what the child needs.. They know what is good and what is not.

Likewise..when we get into a situation we seek help from the divine because we have no one else to go to :)He/she will give us only what we are supposed to get at that point in time :) This dosent mean that we should go ONLY when we are in trouble. Some of me ( proud of that) have been taught that you should thank god for all that he has given you everyday.

So its not being selfish at all :)

Thanks for those enlightening words Sharanya!
Very nice example you have used here.

I do thank god for all i have everyday. Also I am not really the kind who would have to go to the temple or other places of worship to remember him/her.

The only thing is that every time such a situation appears.. I tend to miss him/her more and hence start feeling selfish.

Thanks again! :)
