God and the process of evolution deliberately created us to be different, each one with his and her own unique thumb print, eye print, dna, taste bud... and now, we have to reach out and add religion bud to the portfolio.
Everything is inter-connected, inter-dependent and in harmony, and it is our duty, for
our own sake to keep that harmony intact.
no problem with you having a different thumb print, or relishing different foods, or having your own face, choosing coffee over tea, or having own unique dna combination... and now, we have to seriously think, why
should we not have our own religion bud?
Religion bud is whatever you imagine it to be. To me it is - our ability to accept the otherness of others, to accept different forms of appreciating (worshipping) the creator; whether one leans forward, kneels, prostrates or raise his or her head-up to appreciate the creater - all to be respected. If one does not believe in a God, so what?
Should we have a problem with what God is called, how he, she or it is perceived? As long as I respect your beliefe, and you respect mine and say to you is your beautiful religion and to me is my beautiful religion - we should have no problem with that, should we?
