Insights : Religions are Man-Made! But not the God.

spiritual journey

All I found is “Just follow the path of Love and Kindness as shown by God, Trust in God and love God truly from the soul” There are no religions that exist and all we did is follow a God and called it a religion. Later, people left the God, stopped following his words, just clinging on to the religions, adding their own words and rituals for their comfort. So there are troubles.

Follow the words of your God, it’s enough! There is no need to identify oneself with a religion’s name!

When we do not live in peace and harmony, when we do not love one another, when we do not follow the words of God, there is no use of just chanting the name of God… Rituals and religious ceremonies. All are just a showoffs to this world.

You may choose to follow the teachings of Buddha, Krishna, Allah… I chose to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. Forget religions, follow the path of peace and love.  We will start to understand all the faiths are the same and the virtues of the God is unanimous!

Then how can the path of love and peace can lead us to hatred, violence and cheating one another? The real spirituality is adulterated by name of the religions. All the differences are man-made, to secure dominance and establish their selfish motives! Our virtues talks about our God! When it lacks love, then there is no presence of God at all. So please stop getting mad and thinking extreme about religions! They do not exist at all but just a mere presumed entity in our mind.

On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

“What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”

He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.”

“You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

“Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.” —- Luke 10

These are just my understanding and perspectives, I am not adjudging anyone’s faith or anyone right or wrong, for which I have no rights. In fact, no one has except the god.

Story : Coffee on the Wall : Must Read

coffee

I sat with my friend in a well-known coffee shop in a neighboring town of Venice, Italy, the city of lights and water.

As we enjoyed our coffee, a man entered and sat at an empty table beside us. He called the waiter and placed his order saying, “Two cups of coffee, one of them there on the wall.”

We heard this order with rather interest and observed that he was served with one cup of coffee but he paid for two.

When he left, the waiter puts a piece of paper on the wall saying “A Cup of Coffee”.

While we were still there, two other men entered and ordered three cups of coffee, two on the table and one on the wall. They had two cups of coffee, but paid for three and left. This time also, the waiter did the same; he put a piece of paper on the wall saying, “A Cup of Coffee”.

It was something unique and perplexing for us. We finished our coffee, paid the bill and left.

After a few days, we had a chance to go to this coffee shop again. While we were enjoying our coffee, a man poorly dressed entered. As he seated himself, he looked at the wall and said, “One cup of coffee from the wall.”

The waiter served coffee to this man with the customary respect and dignity. The man had his coffee and left without paying.

We were amazed to watch all this, as the waiter took off a piece of paper from the wall and threw it in the trash bin.

Now it was no surprise for us – the matter was very clear. The great respect for the needy shown by the inhabitants of this town made our eyes well up in tears.

Ponder upon the need of what this man wanted. He enters the coffee shop without having to lower his self-esteem… he has no need to ask for a free cup of coffee… without asking or knowing about the one who is giving this cup of coffee to him… he only looked at the wall, placed an order for himself, enjoyed his coffee and left.

A truly beautiful thought. Probably the most beautiful wall you may ever see anywhere!

Powerful Quote #88 : The God Inside

People assume their actions and its results as an act of the God / Fate / Time, if it is positive they praise, if negative, they blame what they believed. Wise people know the presence of God is inside the soul, some accept it as God, some call it the inner Conscious!, they never blame/praise someone external for what happens in their lives, they accept their actions and reactions positively.
