One night there was a violent storm in the region I lived in, which happened to be a valley region, a place called Dehradun located on the foothills of the Great Himalayas. As lightning and thunder struck every now and then, my mind wanted to understand the symbolism behind the phenomenon. Lightning was always seen long before the thunder rumbled. Scientifically speaking, this happened because light travels way faster than sound.metaphorically speaking we must see something before we believe we have heard it. Always making sure that your eyes have seen something will put you in a better position and keep you away from hearsay and rumours. For the same reason, to believe in God one must see him, hearing from someone does not prove the existense of God for you. If you want to believe in God, go and look for him and believe in him only when you can see him. Seeing is believing.
