A Lie

ESCAPE.

 

Why do we take religion so seriously?

I am an atheist. I don’t believe in any particular religion or community. For me, there’s only one religion; ethics. I have my own set of rules and regulations that I follow to live my life. I believe in karma.

When a baby is born, he is named and labeled to a particular religion. He is taught communal difference of this world; the Do’s and don’ts. The difference between heaven and hell, good and evil, angel and demon. That’s merely an illusion of our human psychology; I believe.

It started when I was born,

Criticism of religion at once.

I am just a child of lord;

From birth, I was taught my ethics,

Thou I never understood the maze.

Questions were always on my tongue,

Biting my mind to never run.

Yes I know from where my roots are sown;

Thou I am taught the incarnation of names.

And ancestors who wrote Vedas to live with rules.

Yet my mind is racing to understand that cross…

No one answered me except to follow the path,

Restrictions are enforced to remind me where I am from,

But I still ask; what are those wars going in your heart?

God made heaven and earth, so he made you.

I ask you why is this different?

I am told if I do good karma, I will go to heaven;

It is a lethal lie,

Because the world is creation.

An illusion!

Am I a killer of my own ethics;

If I just ask you the history of cross and moon?

I don’t think so.

Because he never created any of this names.

Then why have we labeled his creation?

Oh universe here I am

May this world rest in peace,

May each one understand –

He never created any names.

This is my message to you

It doesn’t matter if you are black or white

Believer or non-believer,

You may go to heaven or hell,

He doesn’t rely on names we give to our demons.

Follow your divinity and soul

He lies within you

We are just material body

To experience this heaven(earth) created by him.

If I die young bury me beneath

A meadow; he gifted me a body

That will rot in this earth

Because I am an immortal soul.

This is all lie I say

Because I fear what demons say –

Of being a sinner and getting crucified

But somewhere I know I am right

Here I am

Saying the truth.

Yet some of you hate reality;

But a part of me believes;

That is what humans are sacrificed for.

– Pankti Shukla

Great Greek and roman philosopher have preached and written their thesis which are followed even now. What does philosophy in the literal sense mean? It means “love of wisdom”. Then why our human philosophies are so orthodox which doesn’t allow raising questions. And if you do have unorthodox opinions you are an outcast. Religion is whats causing a war in Syria, Racism against color and mercilessly killing off humankind.

Our demeanor towards our ethics determines our rectitude. I am not against any particular theology. My only mere grievance is let Humanism evolve. Let’s just stop judging a person on the grounds of this sophisticated rules and regulation that blindfold us. A cosmopolitan philosophy is far much peaceful than prejudiced one.

 

As a human being, you choose your own religion, believes and mortality. Be a theoretician of your own life.

Our world needs a linguistic ideology.

Love,

Pankti

    • I don’t have any issues with religion Kris but few that are beyond human Kind! We consider Roman catholic have most highest Values I have ever learned and heard about. But That religion ruined a girl’s childhood. Kathy O’ Bernie her biography “Don’t you ever tell” ruined mere a life of five year old kid? Is this what our God want? I don’t think so.

  1. The young guy who I am a surrogate dad to in South Africa is very Christian. Early on he tried to convince me to go to church and be more Christian. I told him that I’m a good person who believes in treating others with compassion and fairness — and that’s all that god — whoever or whatever that may be — wants from us down here. He agreed, and I don’t get any more religion lectures from him. To each their own… just don’t be a dick!

      • Because
        you are an athiest for a reason ….you are a thinking girl.

        True religion or faith should be rational logical, compatible with modern established sciences.
        We should look for such Religion faith or …way of life.

        Thats y I congratulate you because you are thinking …hardly majority of ppl doesnt do that they scared of questioning religion.

  2. There is no religion greater than humanity. Athesim is not about hating Religion or God, it is more about loving people. Love, service, kindness are not bound by religions and so does God.
