People are God's gift to mankind; they all have the same physical body and soul. We honor the Creator when we respect the individuals He created. Hatred achieves nothing, whereas love and care go a long way. Man does not have the authority to decide which religion is the best.
Since Mother Earth was created, she has seen herself being divided both naturally (into subcontinents) and then selfishly (into countries). She must have never thought that a day would come when she would be divided by her children in the name of RELIGION. When a child is born, he has no conscious knowledge about himself or the environment around him. He is an alien, an innocent soul. His body is made up of the same elements as that of Mother Nature. They have the same two hands, two legs; a heart to love and not to hate and even the color of blood is the same. It is really hard to digest that people forget themselves as in the direct gift of the Creator and fight for land, power, and for little things that hardly matter in life. We all pray to Him to give us all these things. We forget the purpose of our life, for what we have been created.
Man cannot produce a leaf or a fly, but he can tamper with God's creation to his heart's content. He cannot prevent himself from becoming hungry or thirsty; he has no control over the time or country in which he is born; he has no control over his parents or physical structure, and he has no control over when or where he will die. He has no authority to decide which religion is the best when he can't settle on so many things. Fighting with one another or spreading terror in others serves no purpose.
There is a lot of hue and cry in this world- people are starving, they are craving love, they are molested for some of the other reasons. It is high time we rise from the petty issues of religion, fighting over ‘my religion is better than others. We need to understand that we have to rise above the boundaries of caste, color, creed, nationality, and the conventional religion. Though we are living in the 21st century with all the technical innovations on one side yet we are still fighting over religion. Every human being must be treated with respect.
We Indians have always been boasting of our ‘unity in diversity.’ But do we practice it or it has just turned into a phrase.? Each of us must ask ourselves this question.
People need to understand that when they will die, they will be reduced to something that will be composed. Neither the power nor the money will remain with him. Humanity should be the biggest religion for everyone.
Humanity is above religion because its precepts clarified more about human feelings and a better understanding of the pains of humanity and our common ancestry. It is about what we have in common. Humanity preaches more about love, peace, and commonalities while religion preaches about a chosen set of people, people who by their adherence to this religion are considered blessed and saved from the wrath of the Supreme Being.
In all religions there is room for peace, there are laid down principles and ethics to follow. There are fundamentals and scopes for weighing what's right and wrong. These laws are handed down by those light-bearers of these faiths. These heroes of these religions have their lives as the models for living in these faiths they preached about. They made it clear that they are the way to eternal serenity. They established a way of worship, and a way of life and emphasized more those laws which are written in the sacred books. Religions have done well in unifying humanity; it has fostered growth and collective responsibility among the citizens of the world.
Humanity preaches love for one another irrespective of their backgrounds or origins. It does not emphasize laws either written or unwritten. It talks about seeing one another from the womb of nature and acknowledging her diversities. It talks about our uniqueness as humans and places emphasis on what best to do to foster a better society, a place where we all can live and prosper as people. Humanity is above religion because it's above our peaceful coexistence.
Humanity is about doing what is right and not expecting to be rewarded in our afterlife for well done for others, but doing it because we want to contribute to a better world. It is about breaking barriers of ethnocentrism and superiority and accepting other people as humans, not judging them for being of a lower class or condemned to death. It is about having sympathy and empathy when you see others going through difficulties and for sake of humanity you lend hands to help them out. Humanity is above religion because it does not condemn people, it sees humans as the same, it accepts their weaknesses, and creates room to accommodate them. It does not coerce anyone in any way but rather accepts everyone as they are. It embraces all mankind; it accepts the diversity of views and does not separate people.
Humanity is above religion because before we became religious, we were first humans by birth. We were by birth human beings. We were given the endowment of love by nature and this religion-based division and profiling by our society. We all have the same blood flowing in our veins, all of them are red. We have the same weaknesses though they differ from person to person. We are from the womb of humanity and part and parcel of the human family.
