A gentle and well respected old Negro one day decided that he would like to become a member of the church near his home. He called on the pastor of the old fashioned church and told him of his desire.
My dear man said the pastor with a touch of aloofness. I do not think you will be happy here though I appreciate your good intention. Really you would be most uncomfortable among my people and I am afraid it would be quite embarrassing to you and perhaps to them. I suggest you think it over and meditate and see if God does not give you some direction.
A week later, the old Negro met the pastor on the street, stopped him and said, Reverend, I took your advice and prayed and meditated and finally God sent me a message. He said I should not bother any more trying to join your church. He said that He hād been trying to get in there Himself for years without success.
You may ask where i am now and how i can meet you now.
But I am within your heart and we can meet whenever you sincerely want me
A BEAUTIFUL SONG DEPICTING THE SAME BY BAHADUR SHAW JAFER
TUM SE HAMNE DIL KO LAGAAYA, JO KUCH HAI, SO TU HI HAI.
EK TUJHKO APNA PAAYA, JO KUCH HAI, SO TU HI HAI.
SAB KE MAKAM DIL KA MAKIM TU, KAUN SA DIL HAI JISME NAHIN TU.
HAR EK DIL MEIN TU HI SAMAAYA, JO KUCH HAI, SO TU HI HAI.
KYA MALAYAA, KYA KRISTAN, KYA HINDU, KYA MUSSALMAN,
JAISA CHAAHA SAB KO BANAAYA, JO KUCH HAI, SO TU HI HAI.
KAABA MEIN KYA, DEVAL MEIN KYA, TERI PARASTHISH HOGI SAB JAAN.
SABNE TUJHKO SIR HAI JHUKAAYA, JO KUCH HAI, SO TU HI HAI.
ARSH SE LEKAR FARSH JAMEEN TAK, AUR JAMEEN SE ARSH BAREEN TAK,
JAHAN BHI DEKHA TU HI NAJAR AAYA, JO KUCH HAI SO TU HI HAI.
SOCHA SAMJHA, DEKHA BHALA, TUJH JAISA KOI NAJAR NA AAYA.
AB YE SAMAJH ‘SADHU’ MEIN AAYA, JO KUCH HAI, SO TU HI HAI.
