My Belief


I discovered a church!


Not a new one. Very old and grand! This church may be known to all my fellow beings for years. But i discovered it, atleast for myself.

The priest asked me,"Who are you? What is your belief?"

I told,"I am a Human."

Then he clarified, "Which religion do you belong to?"

And I replied,"I am a Hindu by birth."

Soon a smile crossed over his grey eyes. He was convinced. "So, now you turned to Christianity"

"No! I believe in Humanity"

"Oho! You are a non-believer then. So which 'ism' do you belong to?"

"GODISM!"

No more questions. I believe in Godism. The priest left me and hurried to the altar.

Now my conscience turned against me and asked,"What is this Godism?"

"GOD ONLY KNOWS!"

An update after quite some time...

"No! I believe in Humanity"
"Oho! You are a non-believer then..

Really thought provoking lines...I've always wondered myself why can't we believe in god without believing in any relegion....What makes us a believer? The belief in god or the belief in relegion....Finally even I had to go for the same answer..."God only knows..."

good lekha i support you i believe in humanism. But i beleive in Jesus.and He doesnt made any religion.He came to save humanity and people made religion for their own selfish needs.

and i dont believe any of these artificial religions mad by man for his selfish needs .Hinduism is a culture of india and some people made it a religion for their own selfish needs all temples and all churches and every buildings in the name of religion are for money making.

nice to know about you

oo thankuu lekhaa at least one can understand me
actually i believe all living beings are one.all plants , trees, every animal and humans-humans are also animals.
i respect them. I feel intense pain when even one single smallest plant is killed, even a small ant is killed by accident by me. i take utmost care not to harm an ant or any small creature that comes in my sight.
what we can to do make others understand these especially those who are killing all those innocent plants and trees for their own selfishness .
Now I am sure i am not alone Thank you very much lekha. we have to definitely meet one day and that day might have recorded in the universal recorder.
