According to my (personal) belief, God is not a thing we can explain with all of its properties… If we go in depth- we shall found a power – without shape or any other properties… may be a force controlling the whole world…
6+ Billion people on the earth… Huh? And millions of other specious on earth… Other planet’s – we don’t know whether there is life in any other planets in any other Planetary System … on any other man-found or unfounded galaxies… It’s too huge for our little brain’s imagination. If the God is a person, He would not get time even to pee. (Sorry believers –it’s just a logical joke, I don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings).
I believe, God is the creation of human being – as every person need a place- to drop his complaint, sorrows, pains and a place to gain some power to achieve wishes- let’s say blessing… So we (the human being) found a place for all his emotional relief… “The God”.
Somebody says ‘God is Love’… Is it so? Let’s explore a bit… It means God is not a physical entity or something which have a state of matters. It is a feeling. Just like love, any good feelings can be called “The God” – the compassion, co-operation, helping mentality … any such feelings. Just like that the negative feelings can be considered as “The Devil” in you.
There are a lot people who believe in their deeds only – not in God… But they wont accept that openly, because our society give a special place – say a first impression to believers. So even the people who don’t care God, Devil, heaven, hell or even the rituals, will act well as they are the greatest believers.
So depends on each and every person’s imagination capacity – they assume the form of God… Somebody blindly follows what the other people dear and near told him/her…
You may ask “If it is so, why do you go to temple or church?”
The answer is “Just like you, I am also a human being- but honestly speaking; I have not much faith in the rituals… But we have to follow some method to satisfy ‘OURSELVES’. So I am doing what I have been practicing from my childhood.”
For me, when somebody helps you, at that time he is your God… And when somebody back-stabbing you, he is the devil for you…
The person who helped me shall back-stab me some other occasion. Or he may deceive somebody else… So, it depends… One person can be both God and Devil… Only thing is – in a person’s life time what he was MORE… May be he have done more good deeds – if so he is more ‘GOD’ and if not less ‘GOD’ – what if he is equally GOD and DEVIL ???
Somebody ask, then why even highly educated doctors advise to pray?
There are many answers
1. The primary objective is to cure patient. Praying – means putting down all those tension in an imaginary place with a strong belief, that there is such a place exists… Prayers can relieve tension – as it is one of the best method to meditate. The psychology of the patient is very much important in recovery. So to achieve the primary objective, doctors advise so…
2. A doctor who advise for praying can gain the trust of patients and relatives- as they get an idea – the doctor is a good and kind-hearted person- so our patient’s chance of recovery is high. This can make a positive atmosphere and result.
3. The doctor’s education is in medical science – it may not be necessary he is a logical thinker- normally a doctor is an intelligent person. But, it is not necessary he should be a thinker. It’s applicable to anybody- scientists, professors, business men, politicians…
Let me give you some links from http://www.youtube.com
In the above video you can see the magician walking over the Themes River, London.
And in the second video, the magician going upward to sky- in day time from the crowd in a major tourist spot in Brasil (Rio De Janeiro). Some peoples say he is an evil spirit… But, he is just a magician – neither God, nor Evil. Using his skills he could be a God-man. He did not do that – so let’s respect him.
I am not trying to prove the God, Devil, Heaven, Hell … things are non-sense… Of course there is a very big sensible thing in it. The intelligent use of culture, rituals, character formation, building up a peaceful community system … a lot social formation stuff are based on it. Also, religious texts are some very remarkable output – which gives guidance to the peoples for better life. Human Psychology is now-days strongly attached with these kind of beliefs. So, it’s logical and useful – but I am not sure whether it is truth.
Always remember – “The Good men follow the established system, but the Great men think differently.”… And use your brain before going for any communal violence, expensive rituals, or any such religion / God stuff. Identify the business behind that. And let me call all good feelings and behaviors of human being as “The God” and all bad feelings, violence and bad behaving as “The Devil”.
Now, I am not to going explaining afterlife, heaven, hell…etc.-leaving all those things to your brain… Because, Guys- we have lots of grownup things to discuss… I respect and admit believers and followers too – I am not a revolutionist.
