Does god need to be validated on the benchmark of faith?
To answer this (only for those who seek it, for god and faith for most happens to be a zone of no questions taken), one needs to first clear what he means by god.
Do you see god as your inner voice who speaks through the soul or something who is not from among us?
Does god mean the faith that you have in following a righteous way of life where you see the other human beings as equal to you; where you see every living being as creation of the nature which you are just a part of?
If not seeing, do you believe that you need to feel god; do you feel the need to hear his voice coming from inside of you, of others?
There are many, many things beyond human conscience, human conscious and human understanding.
Do you see hand of god in all of them or resort to the logic of logical reasoning?
Do you accept them as ‘wish of god’ or work on to expand your conscious by exploring the ‘why’s’ and ‘how’s’?
There come moments in life when we come to question god’s existence based on the developments we see around us. There are the moments when our faith is shaken and we are forced to question the very basis of harmony in our lives – the existence of god or the faith in ‘being’.
It is an abstract process that how we come to throw the doubts that creep-in after a moment of crisis in our lives or elsewhere in the world where we don’t find any plausible reason and question or blame god for it. But most of us regain faith in this way only.
Here, we do not validate our faith. We validate our total dependence on god. We validate the process of inheritance of faith.
Faith, then, is not evolved. Rather, it is copied.
The concept of god or faith has never to be a blind-following. True, there are many concepts beyond life; there are many developments beyond reasoning. But, that never prevents one to act logical.
Accepting the existence of something that is beyond the existing realm of the human senses has to follow the same path of logic and questioning. It should never be based on what has been said or written if we truly want to establish ‘a bond of harmony’ with our ‘god or faith’.
God is not to be feared. God is to be embraced.
If god is not to be doubted (though many events of crisis create moments of doubt), he is to be questioned. Through questioning only and through the subsequent introspection and retrospection, one can get rid of the moments of doubt.
He believes in god and he doesn’t believe in god. There are many moments in his life he cannot find a reason why they had to happen. He has failed to make his ‘self’ understand how his god could allow it to happen to him.
There are many who face the situation he is in. He cannot say and should not say anything about others but he is sure he needs answers.
Yes, he still needs to validate his faith. He needs to believe in god but he doesn’t know how.
But he knows he doesn’t need a copied faith.
