Words Whipping up Whimsical Waves of Notion

Someone is there with me always

The child was sleeping so peacefully with her hands resting on a pokemon teddy while her grandma had that holy book in her hand.

Can you see some irony there? Both are having their comfort objects in their hands.

Is God the teddy for grown-ups, a source of comfort or a security object?

Both are offering a kind of protective embrace, a reconstruction of faith.  For the kid it’s the teddy while it’s a version of God for adults, making them escape from some unknown fear.

Kids escape from the fear of darkness with a teddy. He assures himself “someone is there with me always”, like God for grown-ups.

  4. This is an interesting post akhila as always. But when people believe in intuitions and superstitions, why not in God?After all, you get peace,faith,hope and much more. Only thing is one cannot prove it, much like how teddy is non living thing. But do I really have to prove it?

  5. A great thought here.
    It is indeed the faith that we have in God that has replaced the teddy.

  10. Religion is a teddy bear for adults. We are an infant race. Homo Sapien has only been around for about 50,000 years. In the scheme of the universe that is very young. But the cataclysm from the war of the gods is the reason why religion works so well. Great post!

    • Maybe we will realize it when the age of homosapience becomes accountable

      • We need to hold ourselves accountable. We keep looking outside for a savior and keep looking for something outside of us to watch us and take care of us. This is what is meant by “Know thyself’. Nothing is outside of you. We won’t become accountable until we realize how much power we have as individuals. I say it all the time “We are who we have been waiting for”. 😊
