GOD, SPIRITUALITY AND RELIGION: AN INTERDEPENDENCE WE FAIL TO UNDERSTAND

What Religion should be for us?
Why should we follow a Religion?
What Religion should we follow?

These are the different questions that, many of us, ask, from time to time, without caring for what we know of and how we know the Religion we practice.

The reason that pushes us for this sort of questioning, a process of reasoning in tougher circumstances of life, comes to our thinking whenever we face hopeless situations in life, where we are not able to reconcile with God for the events happening around us, whether with us or with anyone else where we see the events in motion, events that directly affect our way of thinking.

It is true we ask these questions regularly but we seldom realise what this regular frequency says to us for, we seldom think that our faith and so the Religion we follow should be the evolved one.

We ask questions but we don’t seek answers.

God, Spirituality and Religion – the mess that we have created around the meanings and the symbolisms of these three fundamental words of any human life and so any civilization is responsible for it.

These three words, their meanings and their symbolisms are mutual, interdependent and related. They cannot be practiced in isolation.

Those of us who ask questions but don’t seek answers don’t understand or don’t want to understand the dynamics of these basic principles of organizing a life.

Basic principles, because even if one doesn’t follow a God, a Religion or doesn’t believe in Spirituality, the person needs to know why he is not following when the majority is doing the contrary.

His alternative thinking should also be the evolved one.

When we see or start to see these three fundamental entities, God, Spirituality and Religion, in isolated blocks or when we compromise one at the cost of the other, or when we begin to make combinations without knowing the dynamics of the interdependence, we fail to understand any of these three fundamental principles of life.

And that is what most of us do.

That takes us away from the logical path where we don’t know, we don’t understand, so we never realise, but we follow. So we question but don’t seek answers because even those questions are not the evolved ones, because we become opportunist in seeking God.

But to know God, one must understand the Religion.

But to know life, one must understand the interdependence between God, Spirituality and Religion.
