IS RELIGION THE WAY?
The way to what, you might ask, through time many has come to the conclusion that mankind is completely lost and that it needs a form of direction and that there must be a way out. But direction from whom and a way out of what?
As a result of this questions many has created fantasies for themselves or relied upon illusions for hope.
Spirituality comes into play as many would want to completely accept that they have found answers in the form of “Truth” claiming to be under it’s influence.
Each religion promises its victims (followers) solutions and provides endless answers, but through “faith” they are completely assumed to be realized.
But to what extent does faith become dangerous, as religion demands it in full, so it followers are expected to completely give up any personal ambitions and live up to it’s dogma in complete loyalty, but has it ever been possible to completely live up to one’s religious standards without our true nature interfering? As to many, accepting a religious name [titles] and having a sense of belonging seemingly brings hope as they assume only then can they feel accepted.
Everybody wants everybody to think, act like them, as with the help of religion they become united in one “faith” this becomes like another family to them as together they easily achieve goals.
But the question of “which religion is the best”? comes up, many would quickly jump to the conclusion that their religion is undeniably the best, they may also quote from their scriptures to support their claims or point to physical evidences, or claim to be under the direction of a supernatural force [God], forgetting that people from other religions may also make the same claim. Also let’s not forget that we may all be wrong as there is no absolute truth, so it’s a matter of choosing what’s best for us so long as we stay morally balanced and do not look down upon others that do not share the same religious ideas and values with us.
Staying true to one’s self has always worked and will continue to work, so I encourage people to use their mind as they have it for a reason. Because things will not always work the way they want it just because they wish for them.
