The Address of the Gods!
In every religion people pray. They all have their respective Gods / God. Well built monumental homes of the Gods called as Temples, Churches, Mosques, etc. There are rich Gods as well as poor Gods in terms of the economy, some dwell in a posh place and some just in a place with no roof even. We have reasons bound why people have to visit and gather at God’s place to worship him / her, but people knew God exists everywhere! There are reasons why we need to get organized in a place to worship, both scientifically and psychologically. But now humans have many commercial branches and retail outlets for Gods.
Transactions with Gods!
The most common reason why a human goes to the God is to get the blessing for himself / herself. Humans want the god to keep their life peaceful and happy. So we ask and God gives to us based on various criteria defined, some Gods expect the true faith and following of holy words, some Gods expect rituals, some Gods expect offers on the Hundiyal Box (Piggy bank), some Gods expect even liquor and sacrifices. Strange but truly what God wants is a mystery beyond human definitions. We imagine that God will give us whatever we want if we do what the God wants, comically we ourselves define what the God wants too and complete the transaction!
Aren’t we using God for according to our comfort? This is very evident from the way we handle the religions and way of worshiping, with the rise of technology and science God too has been made a Technocrat. You can find online prayers, online blessings, digital prasads (a devotional offering made to a god), associated businesses of devotional places where we sell tickets to visit the God. We have an economic class to the Executive class based on one’s richness. Poor people have poor Gods, Rich people have Rich Gods!!! When did God go partial to one group?
Locking up the Gods?
We no longer let any God free! Look around, all the Gods are locked up in their homes with a varying level of security according to how rich the God is. Even we need armed-protection to keep the God and his possessions safe from the fellow humans! We have seen worse cases where humans successfully demolished many of the God’s places on Religious riots! Are we victims of religions or we made Gods a victim of our ignorance? The God never need any humanly possessions since everything belongs to the God. It is we humans who want to possess as much as we can using the name of the Gods and we want security for the possessions not the God! What harm these pity humans can cause to the almighty God!
What exactly is God?
Even the non believer will end up with no answers beyond a point in arguments. The God is the only possible answer that we have. The God is never bound by any religions as we humans choose to believe in some religion based on what our little mind knows. How many of us can differentiate the actual Good from the Evil without any religious or selfish bias? Only a very few can do that. Those are the people who can feel what the God is. The God we knew in all forms according to our belief systems has only one Motto. It matters how do we exist and serve our purpose in the path of evolution. We need to accept the fact that we are not in the Drivers seat, we do not control anything in the evolution, we are just a speck species in the path of a giant cycle of evolution. We too will perish someday like the Dinosaurs did, once our purpose is completed!
All it matters is THE NOW how we live and the God is so Simple, GOD IS LOVE TOWARDS ALL LIFE FORMS!
