Are you religious?

24 Apr

Am I religious …

to tell you the truth, I was religious, I was believer … I use to think that there is some force beyond human beings, a god whom we all address with different names.

But now my perspective is changed a bit now I m loosing my belief, on god and destiny. To me express my present belief in more technical terms …

Now I think every thing goes on in this world is a random process but with interdependent variables. Anyways this post is not about explaining that random process but about the religious beliefs.

Although I doubt the existence of god, I still go to temples with my family, read Ramayana and pray to god. Now why is that …

May be for my family, so they won’t think their son is an atheist or may be for the guruji so he wont think his favorite shishye is corrupted or for the aam janta so they wont think I m abnormal.

No, none of them … I think including me … most of us are religious to live a tension free life. Because deep inside every one has this belief that with all the pooja path their misfortunes wont last longer. And as I said every thing goes on in this word is a random process, things and conditions keeps on changing. Some day things get better.

It’s like the way we learn cycling, it’s our belief that some one is supporting us from back to save us from falling make us learn riding bicycle.

PS: – Delhi is 42 degree Celsius these days… now I understand why delhi gals are smoking hot.

PS: — I was hoping much much better performance from IPL (Deccan chargers) Hyderabad team after kickass ICL (Hyderabad Heroes).

PS: — All those people who think having cheer leader in cricket matches is lame can go and start watching aastha channel.

PS: —- Another little birdie told me that MTV Rodies lost half of its viewers after kicking shambhavi out.

PS: —– Trip to Kanpur was great, attended a marriage ceremony after 4 years, now I know what is called dancing all night.

PS: —— It is almost impossible to find a proper road in Kanpur, and I guess it is the only place where you’ll find a world class mall in the middle of most underdeveloped region of city.

PS: ——- About meet an old friend after almost 16 years … very exited.

PS: ——– And finally I have one thing less to think bout before I sleep.

PS: ——— Adios amigos

    — hehe, I remember the last time I went to kanpur, there was a bullock cart, followed by a rickshaw, followed by a tonga, followed by a HONDA CRV 😀 That was a sight to watch 🙂

    in my view the purpose of ramayana is not to believe in god. ramayana talks about what a person needs to be. in ram is gives the source of inspiration.

    Not religious, but spiritual.

    We all need something to believe in, and God is almighty; There is a God.
    God is like a force in the Universe, God is real, he can make anything possible.
    If he made this World, what can’t he not do. Everything here belongs to God, we belong to God and the whole planet. Believe it, and the tongue is a powerful thing God gave us. We have power within us. We can distroy the future of poeple and our own. When we don’t know about the word. The tongue has the power to life and death. I am working on an article about, “The power of the tongue” come to my blog. I’m called spiritual because that’s what Christians are. “Follower of Christ, is a spiritual relationship with God”.

    thank you
    God bless you

    Throughout history, humans have had all kinds of religious and antireligious ideas. Because God is so far removed from humankind, it would be impossible to know Him unless He revealed Himself to us. Christians believe He did that. In Jesus, God appeared in human form to reveal himself to us and also to ransom us from the power of evil and death. Its quite a story–not something humans are likely to think of. Jesus did things no human has ever done before or since, including rising from the dead. His remarkable stories are written down for us by people who were eyewitnesses to history, and they risked and sometimes gave their lives telling what happened. You can read it for yourself. Look for a book called the New Testament and see what You think. Wishing you peace, joy, blessings, and a relationship with the God who made and loves you!

    Vishnu has come to earth 8 more times than the Christian god ever did…each time to help save not just humanity, but the other gods from the forces of hell.

    Rama teaches us to be good people. Krishna teaches us how to be good spiritual followers. I know, I read both Ramayana and Bhagavad Gita myself.

    It is my personal opinion that religion merely segregates people based on rules and regulations, when I believe faith should be able to meld with everyone. Spirituality doesn’t have any rules or regulations. I believe what I believe, and I don’t need someone else telling me what I can and cannot believe.

    kwel… so that makes you the third kind …
