every moment that passes has a message but we tend to distort the guide of the moment to the tune of our thinking that it becomes irrelevant..we misinterpret individuality then but we seldom realize..but the message remains the same..we need to go beyond..alas! we seldom go..
The best way to know the self is feeling oneself at the moments of reckoning. The feeling of being alone, just with your senses, may lead you to think more consciously. More and more of such moments may sensitize ‘you towards you’, towards others. We become regular with introspection and retrospection. We get ‘the’ gradual connect to the higher self we may name Spirituality or God or just a Humane Conscious. We tend to get a rhythm again in life. We need to learn the art of being lonely in crowd while being part of the crowd. A multitude of loneliness in mosaic of relations! One needs to feel it severally, with conscience, before making it a way of life. One needs to live several such lonely moments. One needs to live severallyalone.

GOD, SPIRITUALITY AND RELIGION: AN INTERDEPENDENCE WE FAIL TO UNDERSTAND
What Religion should be for us?
Why should we follow a Religion?
What Religion should we follow?
These are the different questions
that, many of us, ask, from time to time, without caring for what we know of and
how we know the Religion we practice.
The reason that pushes us for
this sort of questioning, a process of reasoning in tougher circumstances of
life, comes to our thinking whenever we face hopeless situations in life, where
we are not able to reconcile with God for the events happening around us,
whether with us or with anyone else where we see the events in motion, events
that directly affect our way of thinking.
It is true we ask these questions
regularly but we seldom realise what this regular frequency says to us for, we
seldom think that our faith and so the Religion we follow should be the evolved
We ask questions but we don’t
God, Spirituality and Religion -
the mess that we have created around the meanings and the symbolisms of these
three fundamental words of any human life and so any civilization is
responsible for it.
These three words, their meanings
and their symbolisms are mutual, interdependent and related. They cannot be
practiced in isolation.
Those of us who ask questions but
don’t seek answers don’t understand or don’t want to understand the dynamics of
these basic principles of organizing a life.
Basic principles, because even if
one doesn’t follow a God, a Religion or doesn’t believe in Spirituality, the
person needs to know why he is not following when the majority is doing the
His alternative thinking should
also be the evolved one.
When we see or start to see these
three fundamental entities, God, Spirituality and Religion, in isolated blocks or
when we compromise one at the cost of the other, or when we begin to make
combinations without knowing the dynamics of the interdependence, we fail to understand
any of these three fundamental principles of life.
And that is what most of us do.
That takes us away from the logical
path where we don’t know, we don’t understand, so we never realise, but we
follow. So we question but don’t seek answers because even those questions are
not the evolved ones, because we become opportunist in seeking God.
But to know God, one must
understand the Religion.
But to know life, one must understand
the interdependence between God, Spirituality and Religion.
