Question:5

  Do you suggest that Islam is bad for the people and they should accept other religions or no religion at all? 

It is not up to me to tell others what to believe. Personally I do not believe in any religion. I have turned to reason and rational thinking. I doubt everything and try to find my own light.

I the words of  Krishnamurti. 

'Truth is a pathless land'. Man cannot come to it through any organization, through any creed, through any dogma, priest or ritual, not through any philosophic knowledge or psychological technique. He has to find it through the mirror of relationship, through the understanding of the contents of his own mind, through observation and not through intellectual analysis or introspective dissection. Man has built in himself images as a fence of security - religious, political, personal. These manifest as symbols, ideas, and beliefs. The burden of these images dominates man's thinking, his relationships and his daily life. These images are the causes of our problems for they divide man from man. His perception of life is shaped by the concepts already established in his mind. The content of his consciousness is his entire existence. This content is common to all humanity. The individuality is the name, the form and superficial culture he acquires from tradition and environment. The uniqueness of man does not lie in the superficial but in complete freedom from the content of his consciousness, which is common to all mankind. So he is not an individual."

If you look for meaning in life, donít look for it in religions. Donít go from one cult to another or from one guru to the next. You can spend all your life or look for eternity and will find nothing but disappointment and disillusionment. Happiness is in the service to humanity. You will find meaning in your love for other human beings. You can experience God when you have helped someone who needed your help. The only truth that counts is the love that we have for each other. Love is real. The rest is mirage, fancies of human imagination, and fallacies of our own making.
