Que: I would like to begin by congratulating you on the publication of “God Within You.” How has the response to the book been so far?
Rahul: Thanks Akhila, Initial response is overwhelming, much more better than expectations. Received valuable feedbacks and amazing reviews.
Que: What led to the idea of writing “God Within You”? Were there any events that inspired the work?Rahul: I have keen interest in human mind, with more research I came across power of mind, like what wonders it can do if we nurture it in right way. My correlation of present state which is exact consequence of past thoughts and actions which I correlated. Slowly realized it’s only me for every good or bad happened with me, no one else. We are our own God in good sense. I always believed in ‘God is nowhere else but right within you, we just need awaken the God within’. I have also proved that with logical correlation of oneness with universe through Big Bang theory.
Que: “God Within You” may talk about issues that most people have been silently facing and perhaps unknowingly. What could be the probable reason according to you?
Rahul: Yes, people consume lots of unnecessary thoughts which get stored in the mind as baggage which often affects them. One of key reason, negative news, attitudes and situations attract more than the positive ones. That deviates mind from natural state to polluted state. This book talks about process which can be inculcated in daily routine to avoid it. Once avoided completely, one would reach towards natural state of mind, God state of mind, which will accomplish all your desires.
Que: What are your views about present-day writing? Do you think it does complete justice to the different classes and social groups of society?
Rahul: It seems so, in present day you have variety of contents full of drama to ultimate spiritualism. You will easily find their views about different social groups; however lower background class people’s space do not get adequate coverage.
Que: Are there any authors that you enjoy reading or any books which are your favourites?
Rahul: In this genera, first book I read was ‘The Secret by Rhonda Byrne’ which shaken me completely, other than this I like ‘The monk who sold his ferari’ by Robin Sharma, ‘The power of your subconscious mind’ by Dr. Josheph Murphy, many others.
Que: Do you think calling “God Within You” a work that is socially relevant would be right?
Rahul: Yes definitely, the main motive to write this book was to attain a happy state, a natural state implies to a God state. We often blame others for our present situation whether pleasant or awful. That’s key mistake, we can only turn it around once we believe, we are responsible for our own situation, then only our self-attempts would be fruitful.
Que: Your writing has given a powerful introduction to your potential as a writer. Can the readers expect more from you in the future? Please share about your future projects.
Rahul: Thanks Akhila, I have started a ‘Thought Provoking fact series’ and ‘God within You’ is the first book of this series. Work for second book is ongoing, probably after six months it will be released. Second book would also be in the same genera, lets content be a secret.
Que: What is the story behind the title of your work, “God Within You”?
Rahul: Slowly I realised that whatever I wished during my childhood time, that everything got accomplished by this time. Now I think, how little I desired that time, If I was aware of this fact, that would also have accomplished. So, I realized, my way of desiring was correct. I was researching on this content for long time which enlighten me a bit but completely yet. Lockdown provided me lots of self-time, which made me write this book.
Que: How easy or difficult was it for you to write a book like “God Within You,” which delivers such a strong message of positivity in a time when there are more negative thoughts?
Rahul: We all born with natural state of mind, and if never gets polluted, this book would have been irrelevant. I have also mentioned about connection with others, and how it impacts everyone associated with us. I have mixed it with the blend of science, Big Bang theory for origin of Universe, and how continuation of universe expansion process cooled the Earth, which led to origin of life. Connection of entire biomass through energy spectrum. To keep deeper connects with universal power one has to be in natural state of mind, which is ultimate source of connection from individual to universe, from one being to God being and its power. Writing was not tough as holistic views of all the elements with its functions was perfectly aligned.
Que: In the present time, there is less work “God Within You.” Keeping in mind your experience of writing the book, what advice would you like to give budding writers who may be planning to write on the same subject?
Rahul: My book is based on my experiences which I amalgated with some existing theories and some I created my own versions. So, anyone can write on similar topic based on their very experiences.
Que: If you were to describe “God Within You” in a few words without giving any spoilers, what would those words be?
Rahul: ‘Purity of thoughts, keeps you mind pure and Natural which takes you closer to the God within’
Que: As times are changing, people are going back to the path of spirituality, which was preached long before by our forefathers. Do you think this is the beginning of a new era?
Rahul: If you see broadly, our purpose of life has changed significantly through time. In ancient time, main purpose was survival and their key focus was to arrange food and shelter for self and family. Everyday they struggled for the same, no time for spiritualism. In medieval time, struggle for food was reduced but struggle for power had increased significantly. So entire population was engaged in power battel be it king or a simple soldier. There were few people always who used to practice spiritualism, in these times that’s reason for holy scriptures of ancient times
Now if we compare same with modern time, with lots of government schemes struggle for food has completely wiped out in majority of population. Once everyone has food, they start comparing with others for other possessions like wealth, house, car etc. that’s key for stress generation which leads to lots of disease.
Spiritualism has evolved as perfect solution of destress yourself, and if you follow my book, you can also achieve your materialistic desires as well. Definitely an era of spiritualism has emerged significantly which will bring ultimate happiness to individual, to society to nation and to the world finally.
Que: Thank you very much for sparing your time. I look forward to reading more books from you in the future. All the best.
Rahul: Thanks a lot, Akhila,
