Closer to God

A drunk lay slumped outside a bar, in serious need of a drink.

A passing priest and bishop started to lecture him on the evils of alcohol.

“You should be more like God, like me,” said one.

The other argued, “No, my son, more like me. I am more like God.”

The two holy men then argued over which was more like God.

Finally, the drunk interrupted. “I’m more like God than either of you arguing hypocrites. And if you give me ten bucks, I’ll prove it!”

They accepted his challenge and each handed him five dollars. As the drunk stood, he said, “You two go sit in the bar and when I enter you’ll have your proof.”

The bishop entered first and the barkeep said, “Good afternoon, bishop. What’ll you have?”

Then the priest entered and the barkeep said, “Good afternoon, father. What’ll you have?”

Then the drunk came in waving his ten dollars.

The bartender shrugged, “Oh, God. Not you again!”

Are we Like the Bishop or the Father or the Drunk.

We love to argue we love to fight yet we never ever leave ourselves, we hold on to ourselves. Bishop and Father argue for superior nature yet are far removed from the divine.

Drunk on the other hand is on a flow and knows that other shall recognize him

Divinity is in all of us

The only thing required is to let go and be part of Him.One has to keep evolving and keep it fresh. Life will always provide its own twists and turns, and being comfortable in your skin and loving yourself is the best way to get through life.

Walking the path of self is a condition but being on the path of selflessness brings one about to the pathless way. Come on the way of knowing the way and in the process bring about a change within to get liberated.
