The word religion . implies a belief system of more than one person . If our true goal is to find god within , then there is no need for religion . Can you dream that ?
I already have! Hugs, ~Jean
I don’t have to dream it, just realize it, isn’t that comforting?
I for one do NOT consent to a world without religion but do consent to a world of religion and more importantly religiousness as defined by Osho.
“Zorba the Buddha is the answer. It is the synthesis of matter and soul. It is a declaration that there is no conflict between matter and consciousness, that we can be rich on both sides. It is a manifeseto that body and soul are together. Existence is full of spirituality – even mountains are alive, even trees are sensitive.
Zorba the Buddha is the end of all religions. It is the beginning of a new kind of religiousness that needs no labels – Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism. One is simply enjoying oneself, enjoying this immense universe, dancing with the trees, playing on the beach with the waves, collecting seashells for no other purpose than just for the sheer joy of it. The salty air, the cool sand, the sun rising, a good job – what more do you want? To me, this is religion – enjoying the air, enjoying the sea, enjoying the sand, enjoying the sun – because there is no other God than existence itself.”
Excerpt from “The Book of Understanding” by OSHO.
Personally I do believe in a perceptual ‘God’ (although that word has been extremely corrupted, which is probably why Buddha never used it). One that needs and wants our help in maintaining harmony in the creation of all that is.
In my opinion John Lennon’s thinking was a little dangerous in this regard. The word “religion” has been tainted but saying we need to imagine a world with “no religion” is throwing the baby out with the bath water.
