After deliberating for a while as to what should be my first post in the New Year, I decided to post a thing that is out of mundane matter.
More than two years ago, some time in 2014, a thought had flashed through my mind that showed a simple, but deep connection between the two words God and Gold and this connection is religiously spiritual.
Look at the spelling of the two words God and Gold. You at once notice that the difference between them is only in the letter ‘l’.
Now letter ‘L’ stands for Love universally. We can therefore write:
God U L = Gold,
‘U’ here being the symbol for union as in set-theory and not the sign of simple arithmetic addition denoted by ‘+’. We interpret the above equality as follows:
When anyone fills his mind entirely with the thought of God, he becomes ‘gold’ meaning he becomes, like gold, a gem among men. He becomes invaluable, pure and everlasting, the beloved of all. He does not rust like other mortals and attains immortality.
Let us now rewrite the above equation as
Gold – L = God
This means, if we lose out the love factor ‘L’ for gold, that is, we shun wealth which gold symbolizes, we get detached from material or earthly possessions and come closer to God. We become godly or spiritual.
