In mathematics when we do not know something we call it or suppose or believe it as variable “X” and proceed further and later we find its constant value. Mathematics is incomplete without the variable ” X” similarly life is incomplete without the ” GOD” .
Anything which we don’t know we suppose or believe there is GOD’s hand behind it. It completes the void in life. In fact it is that unknown in life which is heart of life and is necessary for life without which life would be void .
Life will be blissful if and only if that void is filled either by the variable “GOD” or the awareness of the constant value behind the “GOD” which is responsible for all variables in life and existence.
Theist fills the void with the variable ” GOD” whereas an enlightened being fills the void with the Constant value behind ” GOD” attained through spiritual awakening . Spiritual awakening is a layer by layer process where one’s awareness increases from physicality to non-physicality nature of the existence. Spirituality is the journey from duality to unity .
Problems look bigger when we are away from GOD or do not take GOD into consideration. Atheists are those who fills the void with other name and not the “GOD” .It does not matter by what name you call it or take it but one needs to take it into the consideration without which the journey of life is just not possible.
So where Atheist believes in filling the void with other name and not the “GOD” ,Theist simply calls it “GOD” . So in that sense both are same. An enlightened beings are the one who just do not believe it but also know it as they have arrived at the constant value behind the “GOD” The only major difference between the Theist and the Enlightened being is that where the former’s happiness or peace is temporary , the later’s happiness is permanent as the enlightened being knows the constant behind the variable or unknown .
Enlightened beings are illusion free as they know unity behind duality . They cannot be trapped by “MAYA” or illusion as they know the constant behind the variable “X” of life and are liberated. They are also called इस्थितप्रज्ञा ।They are stable from inside and are at peace from inside eternally.
Confidence is that factor in life which is responsible for one’s success. And confidence is nothing but the consideration of “GOD” in unknown or known form . When “GOD” is not taken into consideration in either form , there comes fear which is responsible for one’s failure. So in other word when one is away from the “GOD” , there is failure or misery or depression ,etc and when one is near or with the “GOD” , there is success or happiness in all situations.
