When I was a kid, I used to think that I want a friend who will never change. what ever I tell my friend, he should not change. When I say happy things, my friends become very happy and when I say sad things, my friends become sad. When I say, I am really pissed with someone, my friends will develop an anger towards them too.
Initially the idea was to have a friend who is always happy, whatever I say. I realized that it is not possible. Lets say if you want to remember only good things from your past, it is not possible, you will also remember bad things. Basically it is remembering your past. So if you dont want to remember bad things, you have to drop good things as well. Thats why I started this article saying that I need a friend who does not change.
Then I found rocks. They are so fascinating that whatever you tell rocks, they are not going to change. I used to share all my happiness and sorrows with rocks. I used to feel so happy that i got a friend who will never change irrespective of the season, irrespective of your emotion, your fear, your love, your happiness, your sorrow. The rocks are a symbol of endurance. Then I realized, who is the person/thing/power that can always make you happy, wont change what ever you tell them, always listens to you, whenever and whatever you say to them. GOD.
Then I thought it kind of makes sense that Gods in temple are made of rocks. People keep asking ridiculous things, god wont get upset People keep telling about too much sorrowful things, god wont get upset People always want a ear that can listen, god is there and THE most important quality promoting trust. So it is kind of closest personification of Gods qualities(if they can be defined)
