Am not an Atheist; But my definition for god is different.

“I am absolutely convinced that, the main source of hatred in the world is religion” – Christopher Hitchens

Infectious religion : Are you a sheep?

You didn’t choose to be a Christian, Muslim, Hindu or Jew but you are forced to follow one religion because your family and community that you grew up is practicing a particular religion. You are forced to learn more about one religion while all other religions are completely ignored. You get isolated into one religious view and you get stuck there. You believe strongly on what you have been spoon fed and you follow rest of your life believing you are on the right boat and you are going to heaven. This is extremely  infectious and this is like flock of mindless sheep moving rubbing each other. They don’t know where they are going, they don’t know why they are going, they don’t want to know and they don’t want to think. They just follow one another. These are sheeples, people who lost their ability to think.

Humans – We are same

Religions are passed from ancestors and no one ever bothered to think again. As an Intelligent being on planet earth; I am not able to believe like the most. I don’t want to look through the same old glasses invented in the bronze age like everyone around me. I have my own views and conclusions on religions and Gods. Religions emerged into a culture. It became an insane weapon to fight for power. If you think about it for a while, you really know deep down, there is nothing spectacular being in a religion. You believe in your God and rest believe in their Gods. But the fact is that we all are one. We all are humans. We came from the same place wherever it is. We should always believe in Human race than in any freaking religions or Gods.

Think out of the box :

Why can’t you just think out of the box and see everyone as same. This world is not a world of hatred and evil. The good earth is beautiful, positive and vibrant. God – could be an ingredient which helped in shaping the universe; Something that evolved into a conscious world may be a world beyond that. I don’t believe in a God who listen to prayers. I don’t believe in God as a person or something that we can perceive through our senses. I don’t believe in a god who has human behaviour and qualities. Some monotheistic religions teach God look like humans, God is Happy, God thinks, gets angry, put you in Hell, Hates you when you do wrong. God has tremendous mood swings. That sounds stupid to me. I know, I have only limited knowledge and consciousness to understand the universe and beyond. You can be a God within you. Am not Atheist, Its just my definition for God is extremely different.

 

UPDATE :

I am not an “atheist” by definition, rather I would say I am against religious views. I don’t believe, that one or more conscious beings exist somewhere in cosmos, or in so called “heaven” is controlling and spectating our lives in this puny insignificant planet earth or any other part of this universe/multiverse. It is logically incorrect to refer God as it, him, or her, or anything, since God never existed nor will exist in any form or size/shape/gender/color. I don’t believe that God listens to anyones prayer nor going to do miracles in our lives. Psychologically, prayer is just a confident booster for our subconscious, it helps us to get tasks done. As far as I am a conscious being, I contemplate, God itself is the universe and is callous, self-sufficient and evolving and we all are part of it, i am bit agnostic since I know, our knowledge and senses are very limited in galactic scale. But eventually, science and time will unveil all the unanswered questions.

When I said I am “against religion”, It does not mean, I will go out there and fight with religious people. I have no intentions to hurt them. I would love to see if they think for themselves, do some research, learn science, philosophy, psychology and history.

Note: My definition for “God” has nothing to do with any religious views which has ever existed or going to exist in next millennia. This is my personal opinion. This post never intend to hurt any religious views or a group.

Derren Brown : Truth behind illusions

Derren Brown is an illusionist, Mentalist and a Magician. You can’t believe everything he shows in his performance. Its all part of his show. Darren Quotes that he achieves his results by “magic, suggestion, psychology, misdirection and showmanship” which includes the viewers as well. If you go through his old shows he used to do more incredible tricks than this like David Blaine which is moreover like illusion and magic. I cant believe that he can hypnotise such a huge audience by snapping fingers unless they are treated with hallucinative drugs or something. While its a part of show; when there are cameras around, audience will be more conscious and mind will be more active. Its impossible to hypnotise such a large audience into a trance state at such a crowd. Plus this show is in Channel 4 for years. It has been taken out from SciFi Category to Entertainment years ago. Its quite entertaining. You have to question your intellect before believing anything. Its quite a popular show though.

Its just entertainment. Purely Entertainment. Unfortunately, People believe it. When I watched his first show, I was almost convinced. But, I couldn’t get along with some of his psychological and Hypnotic abilities. I searched about him in the internet and watched a few shows including the interview with Prof. Richard Dawkins. He himself claims that ‘I’m being honest about my dishonesty’. Which is the punch word, “Magic, Suggestion, Psychology, misdirection and showmanship”. He is honest in that. Everyone should approach this show just like WWE or a street magic. Some of the shows are informative and some are misleading. Its Entertainment Bussines. No one cares about your intellect.

Why purpose of life guided me under banyan tree?

buddha

Even though, it’s not news-worthy as much of celebrity’s new puppy or shiny golden teeth. I have been thinking about this for a while. I started asking myself, the same old question; Why do I live? I started searching answer looking back at my own life and I came up with nothing. So, I decided to look at others life around me for a unified solution. When I looked around, all I can see was people busy working just like bees. Soon I realised, Everything around me is work of someone and someone is earning money out of it. That exercised my thoughts and I asked myself – are we all living for money? My memory came up with some richest figures on planet earth. Why are they making more money than they actually need? Some of them make money for living and some for passion and greed. It puts us all under one umbrella. The mighty money. Here is where we all stand from Richard Branson to poor beggar on streets. But is it just all about money? I had to map my mind to come up with something more philosophical other than just money. I filtered my thoughts.  I came up with a clearer vision. May be, it’s not just the money. You can’t just deny if I say, that life is all about “want/need”.

Even though, money is nothing more than just expensive papers. Money is a big deal in our world. However, money cannot buy everything. Now, let me put more weight on the question by asking why money is important than anything else? Its simple; It gets us what we want. Expensive cars, fame, respect, better life-partner, better life, you name it. But still it’s not all about money. So, there is something behind the screen, pulling cords other than money and  that’s ‘want’. The want to control the world, The want of toxic greediness. I am absolutely convinced by the fact, that one of the main reasons of hatred in this world is greed. Our eyes are dusted with greed and selfishness. The greed of wanting more. We need to pull ourselves back from the world of hatred and greediness to have a glimpse of what life is all about. If we could wipe out greed we could get our visions cleared. That may get a better picture of what we are and what is the purpose of our lives. In this world of hatred and greediness, I can’t see myself as a human living in a perfect world. At last, all these thoughts finally makes me follow foot steps of Buddha to – right Under a banyan tree.
