GOD TOOK THE FORM
Religion! What is a religion? Whenever I chase after this word I always reach to only one answer – A form of belief or trust which is done to take a virtual and psychological support. It is very useful in many ways, in this world where each and every being will be alone someday. In the time of trouble your friends, family members may support you but at the end, they are just the advisors, and at last, you have to face the trouble or problem all by yourself. At that moment of time, our hope and courage take the form of God which is inside us – having no discrimination based on the outside world.
In this world everything is possible but whenever something happens whether the outcome is good or bad – Whom do we share if a person is alone? It is to you or to the things nearby; maybe stone or a wall and after taking the virtual trust on these objects for a long period of time it is named “GOD” by the person. It may be called by different names by different people for their different purpose.
Once, there was a man who had been alone for a long time; he thought to impress his life by starting some new ritual and gave it the designation of his superior – who always gave him hope to live in this world. And someday some group of nomads comes in search of food and shelter; they see this person parsing a non-living thing. They were surprised and wanted to know what he is doing? So, he explains the entire thing, in addition, he also told them that it always gave him hopes. Hence, it led to the start of spreading of hope in the nomad’s life too and gave birth to the beginning of a new religion.
Now many of us wonder- If every religion gives hope, then why do we have different religion all over the world? It’s simple due to large geographical distribution new creative God came up to us in a different form.
Remember culture and religion are two different things but culture is born from religion and yet not related to each other.
In summation, I would just say that all the religion has the same fundamental things:-
- Be good, serve well
- Be hopeful and give hope
