Religion...

I know it is a very controversial!

re-le(d)ge-ion

{
Re=Again

Ledge= A projecting ridge on a mountain or submerged under water/ Some thing Visible!

Ion= A particle that is electrically charged (positive or negative); an atom or molecule or group that has lost or gained one or more electrons/ Something NOT visible

}

NO, I am not a Athiest, I am A firm believer of MY RELIGION..( ...dont ask me what)

My thoughts were triggered in a party when some mentioned something about religion and My though thread went in a tangent:

If you take up IDEALISM approach to social structure, Implying our belief systems are goverened by what we see and hear and are told.

My belief about what is religion:
Some ONE ( gOD?..no human ) intiated pseudo-facts about GOD(like)s!

Who had Abilities out of the nornal human scope!

in all domains.. physical, emotional, meta-anything!

All these were made / told / re-told for various purposes.

- to explain the then un-explianed

- to create abstract nouns.. Fath.. and allied.

.. the list can on on...

But the main FOCUS of what i believe relision wanted to address, got lost..
the main focus being to

- CONTAIN HUMAN BEINGS MIND( from flowing in to tengents which were then not considered correct)

- TO CONTAIN FROM HARMING OTHERS

- WRONG DOINGS ( SO DEFINED)
.. and list goes on..

All these got lost..
got lost coz

THEY( here they is GOD(LIKE) beings or their harbingers)

all forgot
- that THEY too were humans!!
- THAT power currupts!

Many tried..

every try got a different name/ a different religion..

Minute flways of one caused futher complications due to potential and later evident CONFLICTS

and LO!!
here we are a huge huge bunch.. Just like the MONKEY story I told earlier!!

so what is religion to you?? tell me..

well, that was a very commendable breakup of the word religion!!
u did it urself?

and well, im not a firm beliver in any religion. i mean, even tho i am a hindu i dont really get involved in the rituals and stuff, coz i just see no logical thread and i dont wanna believe in superstitions!
but i do respect all religions and i greatly believe that there is a god, but my actions are wat me make responsible for the way my life is shaping and is not the doing of any god!

for a while ive been extremely unhappy with the institutionalised aspect of religion..
i mean, yeah, many ppl speak of the comfort that rituals give them.. and i can see their point. Only i dont find comfort in them, maybe coz of the associations my mind goes on to perceive with rituals etc..

but i think that's not what ure talking abt at all, right?
yeah Srint.. I did it myself!!
my belief is slightly heretic!!

@SUp: well kind off.. hough not exactly

Flags, boundaries, armies, Idiocracy

I am not sure if you have heard of the Movie Idiocracy 
But watching the Political news around me makes me wonder so many times... on how the equation of smart and dumb people in the world stands?

I am not a social scientist; but when I see people around me creating more and more divisions and boundaries, I feel we are heading the wrong way.

For example, I have had very deviant views for words like Patriotism. The love of your country is what is usually means. But people interpret it as protection of their country from other countries!

The only species to kill (not one) but many of its own.

What about recognizing ourselves as one species inhabiting one planet.

Do you think we can ever live as one? Why do we need someone above us? Why do we need rulers, presidents, prime ministers, etc.

We cannot live on our own without wanting to kill each other for resources?

What will bring our infighting down? Lower population, Aliens, appearance of GOD ?

It is Sad

Where am i

It has already been quite a while that i have been trying to answer a key question... Who am i and what am i doing here.   So i decided to change the approach. Let me try to answer... Where am I?   So i am in a driverless metro heading to what can be called east. Towards a metro station close to my apartment.   Digging deeper. East is word to describe a direction on an otherwise sphere (circular) earth. The Earth is a large sphere shaped mass consisting of many elements. It gives company to many such small and big masses which revolve around  a really one at the centre..called sun. This really large one is extremely hot and gives energy to most of these sphere shaped ones ... Revolving around it. So relative to where this sun is visible from where u are.. East or west is decided. Towards it is east. Explaining this i have gained clarity that this large locomotive which i called metro is going in the opposite direction referred as west. Lets focus away from definations of relative posi…
