English Bhajan no. 6688 by Satguru Devendra Ghia - Kaka
Oh, Almighty! Where are you, where are you?
I am deeply disturbed, I want to find you
Unfavourable conditions, creates urge in me to find you
To have a têtê-a-têtê talk with you, I want to find you
I am not a claimant of always remembering you
I want to ascertain, whether I am doing right or wrong, from you
I won't hesitate to come to you, if I can find you
I want to depend on you, how and how, from you
Many things, I want to tell you, for that I want to find you
I want to love you and you, and get love from you

Explanation in English
Our beloved Guruji, Shri Devendra Ghia (lovingly known as Kaka), is a complete and total devotee of the Divine Mother and the Almighty God, in all their many appearances (Avatars), and has written an incredible 10,000+ hymns with Divine inspiration. In this English hymn, He is showing us how we look for God’s help only when it suits our purpose :

We usually start searching for God, high and low, near and far, only when we feel forlorn

Only when we get very distressed and desperate, we decide to try to find God to get His help

We try to find Him when we realize that we are unable to manage the difficult circumstances by ourselves

We want to have a personal talk with God so that we can explain everything to Him and He can then take care of all our issues

We understand and accept that we do not always remember Him in our daily lives as we are busy with other ridiculous things…

We also seek out God only to validate our own decisions, even though often incorrect, as we are unable to look into the future or understand the dire consequences of many of our misguided actions

After going through this process a few times, we begin to understand and realize that we should actually seek’s God’s help in the first place itself and not at a latter stage just to help rectify our mistakes, as only God can be relied upon to truly help us from our predicaments

We then begin to start relying on God and pray to Him to guide us for taking the right actions and taking the right path of ultimately becoming one with God Himself

When we finally learn what God is all about, we will start to love God and yearn for Him to love us back and revealing Himself to us

When things go beyond our control such that we cannot resolve things by ourselves or we start spiraling with no way out, we seek help from God, often times as a last resort. While being self reliant is good, there is actually no need for us to go through life the hard way, and instead, we should surrender everything and ourselves to God and let God guide us to live our life, which would automatically include taking the easiest and fastest steps to become one with Him through leading a sincere and pious life.

He has written about 10,000 hymns which cover various aspects of spirituality, such as devotion, inner knowledge, truth, meditation, right action and right living. Most of the Bhajans are in Gujarati, but there is also a treasure trove of Bhajans in English, Hindi and Marathi languages.
