What Religion lacks from my eyes?

There are around 4300 religions around the world. And we humans have population about 7.8 billion (estimated value, 2020). And everyone in this world are stick to one of the religions. But, being religious , we humans lack humanity. We don't have any ethics and morality. We have drop drop down all the characteristics that humans have to possess.

Conflicts in middle east, on South China Sea, on Korean peninsula , militia groups in Africa, different terrorist groups founded on the name of religion and so on , seeing this all it makes me to ask question my self ," what the hell so called religious people are behaving in this way?"

In such a milieu, I feel there is some flaw in religion .

Religion

In this history of man kind , religion is traced back to the time when we started to live in community being bounded with common acceptance to the code of conduct on the grounds of our behaviours. At first, we were mandated to customary practices which with time developed to the religion.

Religion in my eye are the sets of accepted disciplines which are to be followed from the time a sperms starts to develop to baby to the after death ceremonials. This is the pragmatic side of religion. Also religion endorse philosophies that has been developed by generations and generations.

In a simple way, Religion is the mindset of particular group of people to behave in certain manner in a certain situations.

Flaws ( from my eye)

Attachments

Every religions is attached to idols like Buddha in Buddhism, Jesus in Christainity , Allah in Islam, Hinduism: many different deities.

Modern man attached to physical world feels more religious with the attachments to this idols, dirties, religious place like temples, Church and also with their sacred scripts that are written in their holy books.

I question to them," Candles can remove a darkness from the room. No doubt everyone agrees with it. Some may say, you must light you candle to make darkness go away, no objection to such position. My question here is , to get rid of darkness is it possible with candles, light bulb, touch lights?"

Besides lights nothing can fight with dark. It's not the candles my friends the point lies on light. Whatever the source it be no matter but there must have to be lights. Lights don't have any values without darkness. Light exists because of darkness.

What is light? Light is no other then teachings of our religions. What religions wants you to perceived is the light in which we must attached with.

This is the main flaw that we are attached to medium , in physical objects like statue , holy books, places. This is what made modern man to think those attachments are his property and when we find ourselves attached with we believe ourselves as religious one.

People don't talk about what Jesus tried to indicates us in his whole life. And we give more importance to the misery part of being hung. I feel pity on Jesus on his dying for humanity. We humans don't see the light that has been there waiting someone to tear darkness with it. But we feel if we accept him everything is solved.

If you think in that way then you are in wrong way. Just recall a phrase:

Jesus:" To reach the kingdom of my father ( heaven) , only the way is I".

Same is said in Bhagwat Geeta ," I am the way"

But people what we have understood is: to Worship him, pray him, accept him. We don't have time to contemplate on subject matter. The phrases in above indicates know yourself. Know I. If you know yourself, that is I , is the way to heaven. There is no other way. This is the message that every enlightened soul delivers.

Here who cares about the light. We love to live pompous life , thus this makes to feel going on church, temples, reading holy books makes one religious. And to make other feel that I am religious we don't even think a moment :

What am I doing? Isn't it stupidity?

They Just covey message through going live in social platforms, posts with the tag of #religiousme #vibes of being religious .

This is why, statue, idols, temples, holy books gets their value. Actually they don't get values but we implant values in them. We ignore the message , indications, metaphors of the religion.

If only 1% of so called religious people have understood that light can only help in dark, the world would have changed to some better place.

I like to raise another one too

Accepting only Good things/habits

Gods exist only due to presence of evils, i.e good exist because of bad, day be wise of night, female because of male and so on also the vice versa. Both have same importance. So I think they have both equal status. And also one is complement of another, only one doesn't have existence.

In India, in some places they worship Ravan as a god where in other places he is worshipped as Demon king. Either to take Raven as symbol of good or bad there must be Ram. Everyone knows this fact but what are we people doing? We are only accepting good things. People take Raven as God and ignore Ram. Where Ram is taken as God then Raven is ignored.

From my childhood, I was taught to adopt good habits. Now also same thing is going on.There are many people around world claiming themselves as spreading religion, Dharma like Sadhguru they too only wants to imbue positive dimensions inside us.

As good becomes good only with the presence of bad.This is why I believe everything is going in wrong direction. This is why I feel l this is another flaw that religion is trying to make you.

If you can't accept bad things how can you adopt only good things. What is wrong in worshiping to saitan, demons, evils. If we contemplate on the subject then there is no difference in good and bad, and God and Saitan.

If we can't cultivate Bad vibes within us, then how can we cultivate only good vibes. GOOD and BAD both must be accepted in order to balance ourself. If not then we go beyond any boundaries to make ourself to hold on whatever we have accepted.

I am trying to say " IF YOU SEE A GIRL AND YOU HAVE SEXUAL DESIRE, THEN DON'T KILL THAT SENSATION LET IT FLOW, DON'T REACT, NEVER NEVER COME UNDER ACTION BUT SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING INSIDE YOU, SEE HOW FAR YOUR MIND FLOWS, NOTE EVERY SECOND, HOW YOUR MIND IS EXPERIENCING?" , this is way of making mind aware, with awareness, mind wants to take rest. When the goes rest, then everything disappears there won't be girl neither the sexual desires.

At last I wanna say, bad are bad but accept it, try to realize them, with realization even good loose it's values but when you flow with either good or bad then you will be in trouble so just watch.

This world is the projection of mind, everything exist inside our mind but we see them outside. Whatever we see ? Or believe to be good or bad? God or evil? Everything is play of mind. Accept even the bad let it be dissolve in the so call good that you have been cultivating from the time of birth.

This flaws I see in religion is not on religion but is in the mindset of religious people. And what I wrote here is I am accountable to it. It's all my opinion and has nothing to do with other.

Thank you for your time.......

I don't agree with some of your points, but I respect writing an article critical of religion on a site where it seems like every 10 articles is something about God.

Religion serves as basis for morality. It's good to have basis that will help to shape our moral. But the problem is there are too many religions and truth is not yet known whether there is a true religion or not.

What is truth ? Lies in the eye of a person. It can be taken as attachments sometime it becomes beyond attachments

Religion sets standards for an individual for some reasons and instances. It's good as it serves as guidance for morality but the question is "Among all those religion, what is the truth? "
