Only human kind bother about the God or any other living being also think about its creator?
We have no means to find this out.
What should have given the thought of God to human?
Is it fear that is responsible for human to create their own Gods?
We don't have the answer to these questions but we have come to a stage to talk about God, to talk about worshiping, and to talk about realising the God. Religion thrives on creating a fear about God. People are conditioned to submit to the authority of religion.
To have been born in India has given me an opportunity to know more about various religions. Beyond the religion, the sages have searched out side and within themselves to find what and where God is. The true realisation of God as many spiritualists concluded is the realisation of every thing as manifestations of God.
Lord Sri Krishna in Baghavat Geetha says that earth, water, fire(energy),Atmosphere,space, mind, knowledge and the soul are the eight of His manifestations. God is thus explained to be the Almighty. Human beings are provided with a rational mind that can understand many mechanisms and is capable of creating things. The analytical ability of the rational mind has given rise to the search of God.
Religion has some how inculcated in us the habit of perpetual demanding. They have commecialised a phenomenon where one can demand and will be rewarded. Religion insists that one should be afraid of God. Religion wants the individuals to obey its rules and to serve their God. Religion defines what God likes and what God dislikes. They have so many success stories interpreted favourable to the commercialisation. So the highest monetary income is made by the religious places that you can find in all religion.
In spite of all these tricks some could realise the God in the eight manifestations.
Why at all some one like me, interested in training people in soft skills, talk about God. Because in the name of God people are habituated to perceive their emotions as evil things. If the emotions are only a part of mind, then it is only Gods manifestations. So emotions can not be evil. Skill to manage our emotions is a very vital aspect of soft skills training.
The emotions that we could perceive are fear, anger,lust, depression and desire. We have basic physical and psychological needs that get transformed in to emotions. So all these emotions can be perceived as tools to satisfy the basic needs.
Why should we accept if some one says that the tool is evil? Will you accept that a knife is an evil thing when it is so useful in kitchen, office and in some manufacturing process. We have to learn to use the tools properly.
Say, you want to catch the train and you have just adequate time to proceed to the railway station. The anxiety which is another form of fear makes you alert and focus all your attention towards the single act of proceeding faster. Is this not a necessity?
The lust in you makes you walk that extra mile to give the best to your sweet heart.Does that not sound good?
The anger gives you sufficient power to fight and protect your selves. Without anger, will you not loose your life as a vegetable?
The depression avoids the conflict between action and no action and puts you to rest for some times. Is the rest not needed to compose oneself from a personal loss?
Since emotions drain much of our energy and there is the effect of inertia, we should learn how to control them, shift them and come out of them when we have to act.
So, in short, non of the emotion is evil. Our act might be evil when we act in a selfish way but never the emotions.
Let us not condemn emotions and feel guilty of having emotions. The guilt can be rationalised and we can come out of this mood. We can live all emotions and augment the pleasure and reduce the pain. The ability to love and form relationship will help in this direction. The synergy we get out of our relationship will give us the skill to handle emotions favourably.
Let us realise the God within us in all the eight manifestations and in all others around us. Realising God so is very simple. Let us get out of the slavery of religion and just use religion only as a club activity to meet people and get connected to start a relationship.
Remember that in a relationship we have to give is first and then take the synergy later. If we demand any thing from a relationship we will soon loose that relationship. This is true for any close relationship. The relationship referred here is the true relationship in the mind.
