!!! This is My Religion !!!
??? What's Yours ???
*Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians* -- Who are they ? I don't know coz I don't belong any of them.
You Wanna know Who I Am , What religion i belong to ? - I'm Human , my only religion is Humanity. I don't belong to people neither i belong to their created so called Religions- The religions they made for their own interest , for their selfishness, their self-serving, to mislead and misdirect others.
My acts for everyone's happiness, well-being and fight against evil is my God, NOT a Scripture, Book or centuries back written fantasies or stories on which people have blind faith even they teach cruelty, hypocrisy, brutality, harshness, discrimination or self-obsession.
I don't think God writes behind his name any of these : "God Sharma" , "God Abdullah", "God Singh" or "God Smith", neither I do. Today people like to know each other, come close to each other, love each other on the basis of religions and castes only. A person who belongs to one's religion, is never preferred by other religion even if that person is better than any one else. People prefer the one from their religion no matter how bad he/she is. Once i was having a conversation with someone and he was explaining me that they prefer to select the person having bad qualities but of their own community/religion rather than a person having good qualities but of different religion.
WOW !! That's the world we're living in. We're calling ourselves Humans. Are we really Humans ?? I don't think so !!!
"We're youth, we're the future, we can make this world and our lives better than before !!!", this is the thinking of today's youngsters. Nice Haan !!! I like that........ But are they really on this path ? Again, "I don't think so". They have in their mind that Religionism or Casteism is one of the evil in the society but when they try to go against it then their own people, their family, their parents, everyone start putting them off. I remember when one of my friend's parents emotionally blackmailed her so that she can understand that she can't love or marry a guy of different religion.
"How can you do this to us ? How can you forget you belong to ****** religion, and that guy is of ******** religion ? How come it didn't come in your mind that how our people will react on this, that we will not be able to step outside our home ? What face we will show to our people, our community our society ? You should atleast thought about the religions once , before falling in love !!
Either you leave the guy or kill us or we'll commit suicide. If anything happen to us the only reason will be you. If we had any idea that you will bring this to us , we would have definitely killed you at the time of your birth. You made us ashamed !!!!!"
WOW !!! when parents talk like this there are very few , yeah i mean very FEW children who can stand against them. But story didn't end up here, you know what , my friend was the one who stood up against these threats and then what happened, Strategy #2.
"You know what our religion says - It is a sin to marry or love a guy of another religion. You know what mistake you have done, God will definitely punish you for this as it is written in our religion. If any girl marries a boy of other religion than she will not get a place in Heavan and not even in Hell. Let us tell you what exactly our religion says and why is it superior than any other religion. Blah ! blah ! blah!", and this was enough to brainwash her.
Yeah, Strategy #2 worked. Parents sometimes are not right and they make their children to start thinking in that way too. She was brain-washed. And she is now one of them who thinks her religion is superior than anything else and she now says tat her religion dosn't allow the guy of another religion to step inside her life b'coz he doesn't deserve it. Unfortunate and Pity. And once again Religion won against Humanity, Love and Loyalty.
God never send us on this planet on the basis of religion, HE doesn't know what religion is , coz thats what people created not HIM. HE created us and we created boundaries, castes, religions, self -serving beliefs. HE sent us on this planet as Humans only, but we had converted ourselves to labels - verma, khan, jones, davis, singh etc.
I don't need to go to Mandir, Masjid, Gurudwara or Church to worship God or to find peace. When i see smile on someone's face just b'coz of me that moment makes me feel i worshipped my God, that place becomes a holy place for me and that gives me happiness and peace.
I know i'm not immortal, i have to die one day, i'm also the one like others whose last breathe is reserved, so why i fear of anything. This is my life, i know what i have to do , i know what makes me feel happy and also what makes other feel happy. This whole life is mine, this whole planet is mine, everything in this world is mine till i'm here. Nothing can stop me , no body can bind me. I'm independent soul, i love people not religions and not those beliefs that separates people. Even if my parents think there is a religion that one should keep in mind before loving each other then they need to change their thinking, NOT me. Not always elders are right , sometimes they need to upgrade their out-dated thinking, and only we are responsible for this. Its our responsibility to make them good Human beings rather than a so called Bourgeois Religious person. God is not in a (self-serving, self-obsessed, self-interested, egoistic, self-seeking, erring, mis-leading, mis-directing) religion or beliefs , HE is within us. Look inside you, always do good and always fight against evil -the bad things, always love without conditions and without any fear, that's what God do and wants us to do, God is not in religions its within You, and thats True.
You're now actually thinking of my Religion ????
My Name is AMAN - the name that every religion has whether they call it as AMAN Sharma, AMAN'deep Singh, AMAN Siddiqui or Christians usually call AMEN. But I'm not any one of them.
And I will always be like this , no self-seeking religion can bind me.
