MY BASIC BELIEFS ON GOD AND RELIGION
I believe that there is no God as is commonly known. But there is mental or spiritual power latent in every human being. God is an imaginary concept created by the enlightened spiritual leaders of yesteryears to help the ignorant common man to tap his latent mental energy. The method works by creating a faith in an entity called God, and the faith then helps to shift a person to a higher mental state. How this method works and my views on God and Religion are published as summary of my book in the article God and Religion - A New Look .
The concept of God is the best available, though primitive, method to reach higher mental states and thereby tap the mental energies lying dormant in all humans. I believe that with advances in Mental Science, advanced methods would be developed and the method of God and Religion will be outdated.
I think there is no God. There are only spiritually enlightened humans who can be termed as having 'attained God'. They are characterized by extremely high feelings of Love, Hope and Faith.
Actually, my answer to the question above is Yes and No. There is no God so there is no question of God residing in every human being. But what is commonly meant when we say God resides in every being is true in the following two distinct ways:
i. Every human being has
extremely high potential spiritual energy and mental powers which are
commonly associated with God. Only we do not know how to tap that
God is not Love, but Love is one of the feelings apart from Hope and Faith, which when present in high proportions in a person, takes him/her closer to a spiritual state that we commonly call 'reaching closer to God' or 'attaining God'.
Actually, my answer to the question above is Yes and No.
No because hatred may remain for other reasons even if religious differences disappear.
Yes because hatred due to
religious differences will certainly disappear - when people will learn
how foolish it was to believe that there were different Gods, different
religions and beliefs. Today we laugh at the old ways through which man
had explained the physical phenomena with imaginary stories (e.g.
according to Indian mythology, lunar eclipse ocurs because the demons
Rahu and Ketu bite into the moon!). Man will laugh at his religious
folly when the spiritual science is developed and spiritual phenomena of
the universe explained.
I have a clear and specific plan to make this happen. I know that it may take ages for spiritual science to develop and for the spiritual phenomena to be explained precisely as the physical phenomena are explained today by science and mathematics. Today man needs an eye opener to realize that he is in an era when there are primitive immature theories to explain spiritual powers (like the theory of Rahu and Ketu), and that a new 'science' may be developed which may explain all. What is important today is for all of us to realize that it is downright foolish to believe that one religion is better than another, and to fight for the religion. Religions are good and they are there to help individuals. But they are having a deadly side effect in the form of conflicts and killings that they are causing. Religion and God are today's best methods for mental well being. In future, there will certainly be much better, faster and foolproof methods to achieve what the method of God and Religion does today. For now, he needs to use this primitive method to his benefit and avoid the deadly side effect.
I have written a book called "God and Religion - A 'Scientific' and Objective Look' which is intended to be the eye opener. I have published a summary of the book in the article God and Religion - A New Look. I wish to publish the book. Any help from any members in publishing the book is welcome. My attempt is to spread this message and to help reduce religious conflict.
