Does God Need Our Help?
'God is the Almighty, He can do whatever He wants, then why would He need our help?' This is what you may ask. But the reality is that God does need our help.
Nature works according to definite laws. Though the laws of nature have been created by God, yet God too cannot break these laws. One of the laws of nature is: 'Ask and you shall receive.' If you don't ask for help, God will not be able to help you. Therefore, if you want help from Him, you will have to learn to ask for guidance from Him. By asking guidance from God, you are helping Him to help you.
In order to receive guidance, give a green signal to God, i.e. say, 'I am ready to receive the answers to my prayers. I am prepared to decode the messages sent by You.' Your signal will be green (effective) only when you have a smile on your face, when you do everything with a smile, and when your mission statement of life is: Whatever you do, do it with a smile.
This green signal will help the divine guidance to reach you. Thus, what is needed is just your help and your laughter.

Paulo Coelho's masterpiece tells the mystical story of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure. His quest will lead him to riches far different—and far more satisfying—than he ever imagined. Santiago's journey teaches us about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, of recognizing opportunity and learning to read the omens strewn along life's path, and, most importantly, to follow our dreams.
