It's the most important question of our lives that we never face out of the possible answers that we already know in our conscious. We, as humans, and as responsible members of society have learned to hide the truth and keep living in fear without a rationale.
What am I talking about? I am talking about the biggest faith system on this planet. We all call it GOD. Some of the research questions worth asking here are as follows:
/who is God?
/why do we believe in God?
The answer that we all deny and are terrified is that God finds its origin from the fear within ourselves. And God itself is a systematic fear within us. The fear that something bad will happen if we don't do things according to what is prescribed by his agents, priests or others. Most of us want to please God by being at its place, temple, church, mosque or Gurudwara.
Lets create a hypothetical situation to understand God better. For every good thing, there is an equal amount of bad thing. If there is God, there is the Devil. And both of them are equally powerful. For if God is more, then it will reign and there will be no bad influences or people. If Devil is more powerful, then Devil will reign. So we agree that both are equally powerful. If they are equally powerful, then why place our belief in God, why not in Devil. As God tests us, but Devil's test is easy to pass and you will be rewarded wonderfully. Confused !!..................do not try to deny the argument without thinking it over.
Its our culturally built system that automatically denies anything being said against so called God.
There is God and there is Devil, but they reside within our mind and within our thoughts. They don't need a separate temple or place of worship. Your conscious is your God, or it can be your Devil depending on the choices you make. We all reap fruits of our own doings. God is neither a forgiver nor a punisher. It won't punish you and it won't reward / forgive you either. If that was the case, every terrorist, rapist, criminal will be the biggest worshippers. You just pray a million times to be forgiven for a murder, a rape or any crime.
Think again about what you believe in and what's your belief system. Don't believe in anything without a rationale. Believe in God is not bad, until it reaches the point of superstition and denial of the logic. No belief system or faith system guides you when you don't believe in it but fear it. Do not be fearful, be rational and faithful.
