does the system work ?

Standard

hmmm..god, religion, belief, faith…
love.

weird how they all get interconnected in our heads..and we have to keep confusing them up.
thats also sad.
but according to the “religions” out there, all of these entities are supposed to be the same.
the same.
yeah. right.

they are all interconnected for sure. they all have effects and bearings on each other as well.
but they can’t be the same. they can’t all represent the same entity. or even different facets of one entity.
we need something called God(or “superior power”) just to remind ourselves that we are not the be-all and end-all of existence. that this world is bigger than all of us. that the universe has existed without us in it earlier. and will continue after we move on.

we need to know that there will be something that will remain through the ages. before us. after us. because there is no other reason for us to believe that everything matters. that there is a point to all that happens in this world. that there is an answer to the why.
i am not saying that this is the answer. it points us towards the answer.

religion is supposed to be the path to God. the key word here is “supposed”. its gone off the path. the idea behind it has gotten lost in all the crap that’s come in. and frankly, to me today, it has lost meaning. one will find one’s own path when the time comes.
that sounds extremely preachy. damn.

and finally, the belief and faith part of it.
and the questions i asked last time.
can one afford to lose the faith ever ? whatever the circumstances ?
i don’t know.

i have found myself doubting so many of the things that i have been taught by my family. i have also found it funny that no-one has ever asked ‘why’ for so many things.
the most typical answer: “you don’t ask why for some things”
and that doesn’t work.

about all those affected, my saying anything does not make sense. i am not in their circumstances, and cannot ever imagine their feelings. i can only hope at some point of time they realize that life still goes on. that being human, they have the ability to survive. and that means that there is a reason for it all.
and so one has to continue to believe in life.
and so live.

i needed to get that out of my system.

i hope the new year brings in the many hopes, feelings and qualities that the world has lost. and also that the world doesn’t lose what it has now.
ever.

happy new year everyone !

    Wonderful realization, but sometimes, when we speak about our feelings and reactions to others honestly, it gives the other the opportunity to see “reality” as opposed to the illusions that we are often stuck in when we are in great pain.

    You may not be in their circumstances, you may not be able to understand it, but when you speak from this realization, your words have great power. Not only for yourself in expressing them, but for the others, for the world, in the Dance of the Divine. You might need to say exactly what someone else needs to hear.

    I know … I heard.

    Peace,

    Interesting Sev. I sat and thought on this for quite awhile before replying. To me, I could find connections between all of those. But also I found them in seperate areas. Without going on forever on each I think it safe to say. You have caused me to miss part of my day. HA HA.

    Satish I do not think that u need my introduction anyways please do’nt mix religion and love it is two different thing when it comes to practicality and the trouble starts there. So please do’nt mix up and get in real trouble. Ido’nt know whether your blog friends agree with me or not, because we come from a different cultural background comparing to them which I am not in a position to explain, and for you it is self explanatery. Any of your blog friends are most welcome to write to me in this regard.

    Love

  4. Hello, my name is Lou. I am 6 years old. I am blind from birth, and
    profoundly different in my head…
    One year ago, my daddy decided to create a webblog to share with people the slightly crazy experience of my discovery of life. Now, after a great success in french (I’m french speaking), this blog start to be translated in english progressively, but it’s very difficult to let it discover to the english web community.
    So, if you are curious, let come visit my blog and if you like it, refer it.
    Thank you.
    Regards.
    Lou (through daddy’s words)

    @HippyChix: then this is something that i must try to do more. and maybe external realizations are what can make us realise what we are meant to in the first place.

    @bubba1: they are all related. but we, very often, don’t relate them correctly. which is where all the problems can begin.

    @Lou’s daddy: right, you’ll be next on the list for me to learn about life from..
