THE UNIVERSAL RELIGION

THE UNIVERSAL RELIGION

 Why have so many wars been fought in the name of Religion?

 How can we eradicate the extremists of all religions?

IS IT THE BLIND FAITH OF EXTREMISM?

The answer is to teach young people about Humanity and Spirituality (Universal Religion). The author Devidas (Dev) Tahiliani has written the following book to be adopted as a textbook in high schools all over the world. He understands that Reading, Writing, Science and Math are important to survive in this world, but the training of young minds to Live and Let Live under One G-O-D (Generator, Operator And Destroyer) is also important for the survival of humanity.

There is a huge hole in the heart of all our education systems. It is where the skills and abilities of self-management should be. No one teaches children as to how to manage their thoughts, feelings, attitudes and behavior, so they find it hard to manage the Four Rs – Relationships, Roles, Responsibilities and Resources.

 Our world today is dominated by religions that require blind faith and obedience.Humans will continue to abuse each other until we understand that we share a responsibility to ourselves and to each other. The power of our inner spirituality is called Humanism.

We can each follow our own path and share our faith with others without Hatred, Scorn, or violence, and accept other paths as equally valid to our own. It is good to have some kind of faith, but we must follow it with reason.

Following was Dev’s motivation to write a book:-

Devidas (Dev) Tahiliani was 7 years old when India got independence in 1947, and the country was divided by religioninto Hindu India and Muslim Pakistan. Dev was born in Pakistan area. His parents being Hindu had to leave their property (Land & Buildings) and become refugees in India.

Decades later Dev personally felt the destruction of the 9/11, 2001 attacks on World Trade Center, because he was working as project manager for The Port Authority of NY&NJ (PA/NYNJ), across the river from WTC. PA/NYNJ lost about 86 workers, including some of Dev’s friends. This resulted in his Heart attack in January 2002 and Dev had to undergo quintuple bypass surgery. He then spent time sitting at home and wondering what prompted extremists to act. He started reading religious books and collecting material.

Dev retired from PA/NYNJ in 2012 and before settling in Natick MA, close to his five grand children, he was living in Boston close to where Marathon Bombing took place in April 2013. That attack prompted him to quickly finish his newly released book.

Our whole world at present revolves around Body Consciousnessand no one cares for Soul Consciousness. That is why less and less people go to religious places everyday. Everything we teach in our schools is about building your career, as to how to earn money and take care of your body; and the spiritual teachings are left to the local churches, temples, and mosques, where the extremists take advantage and brain wash the children with their ideas.

Our children spend dozen years in school, then go on to college or professional training for several more; they work out at the gym to stay healthy; they spend a lot of time enhancing their comfort, their wealth and their social status. They put a great deal in to all this and yet they do so little to improve the inner conditionthat determines the very quality of their lives. What strange hesitancy, fear or apathy stops them from looking within them, from trying to grab the true essence of joy and sadness, desire and hatred? Fear of the unknown prevails and the courage to explore that inner world fails at the frontier of their mind. In pinning all their hopes on the external world, however, they can only end up being disappointed.

When we speak of the role of faith in cross-cultural conflict resolution, our challenge is to honor the diversity of the world’s humanistic and spiritual traditions while seeking common ground among them, that common ground is that we are all same GOD’s creation, he is our Generator, Operator and Destroyer.What we need is an agenda for research, dialogue and activism that is global in conception and responsive to common challenges of peacemaking and coexistence within and among the world’s many traditions.

Education of the masses about different religions is the key in resolving conflicts. With Guns and Bombs you can kill terrorists, but with education of Universal Religion (Humanity and Spirituality) you can kill the terrorism.

GOD VS. SCIENCE

GOD VS. SCIENCE: – There are two great debates under the broad heading of the God vs. Science. Can Darwin evolution withstand the criticism of Christians who believe that it contradicts the creation account in the book of Genesis? In recent years creationism took on new currency as the spiritual originator of “intelligent design “ (ID), a scientifically worded attempt to show that blanks in the evolutionary narrative are more meaningful than its very convincing totality.

Science and religion – far from being complementary responses to the unknown, are at utter odds. We humans want to cheer on science’s strides and still humble ourselves on the faith. We want access to both MRIs and miracles. We want debates about issues like stem cells without conceding that the positions are so intrinsically hostile as to make discussions fruitless. We seek those who possess religious conviction but also scientific achievements to credibly argue the widespread hope that science and God are in harmony – that indeed Science is of God.

The question of whether there exists a supernatural creator, a GOD, is one of the most important that we have to answer. God cannot be completely contained within nature, and therefore God’s existence is outside of science’s ability to really weigh in. For centuries the most powerful argument for God’s existence from the physical world was the so-called argument from design: living things are so beautiful and elegant and so apparently purposeful, an intelligent designer could only have made them. But the Darwin provided a simpler explanation. His way is gradual incremental improvement starting from very simple beginnings and working up step by tiny incremental step to more complexity, more elegance, and more adaptive perfection. By being outside of nature, God is also outside of space and time. Hence at the moment of creation of the universe, God could also have activated evolution, with full knowledge of how it would turn out.

The gravitational constant, if it were off by one parting a hundred million, then the expansion of the universe after the big bang would not have occurred in the fashion that was necessary for life to occur. When one looks at that evidence, it is very difficult to adopt that view that this was just a chance. But if one is willing to consider the possibility of a designer, this becomes a rather plausible explanation for what is otherwise an exceedingly improbable event – namely our existence. God is the answer to all of those “How it must have come to be” questions.

We humans can ask, such as “Why am I here? “What happens after we die?” “Is there a God?” If you refuse to acknowledge their appropriateness, you end up with a zero probability of God after examining the natural world because it does not convince one on the proof basis. But if your mind is open about whether God might exist, one can point to aspects of the universe that are consistent with that conclusion. To a medieval peasant, a radio would have seemed like a miracle. All kinds of things may happen, which we by the lights of today’s science would classify as miracle just as medieval science might think of a Boeing 747.

From the perspective of believer, once you buy in to the position of faith, then suddenly you find yourself losing all of your natural skepticism and your scientific credibility. The scientific instincts of some scientists are less rigorous than others. The difference is that for some scientists the presumption of the possibility of God and therefore the supernatural is not zero. Faith is not the opposite of reason. Faith rests squarely upon reason, but with the added component of revelation. There are answers that science is not able to provide about the natural world – the questions about why instead of the questions about how. We find many of these answers in the spiritual realm. If there is God, it’s going to be a whole lot bigger and a whole lot more incomprehensible than anything that any theologian of any religion has ever proposed. While physics and mathematics may tell us how the universe began, they are not much use in predicting human behavior because there are far too many equations to solve.

WHAT, WHY, WHO, WHEN, WHERE IS G-O-D Generator-Operator-Destroy

What is God after all ? ———

The Divine, Supreme, Infinite, Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, Love, Peace – that is God.

GOD IS BEING-CONSCIOUSNESS-BLISS
GOD 
is described as having two aspects.
Under one aspect we should know him as NATURE
Under other aspect we should know him as SOUL
NATURE 
is described as the cause in the creation of effects from causes SOUL is described as the cause of experiencing the pleasure and pain. 

Why is there God ? ——– 

The existence of God cannot be proved through scientific experimentation. It is experienced as pure consciousness, where intellect dies, scholarship perishes and the entire being itself is completely lost in it. The proof of God lies in man’s need for God. In other words, man’s faith in God of all religions is itself enough evidence of the existence of the Almighty.

Who is God ?———-

God is totality of all that exists, animate and inanimate, sentient and insentient. He is free from all ills and limitations. He is omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, omnibenevolent, and Omni truth. He has no beginning, middle or end. He is the indweller in all beings. He controls from within. God is all in all. God is the only reality in this universe. 

Where is God ?————

There is no place where he is not. He is hidden in all beings and all forms, like oil in seed, butter in milk and mind in brain, fetus in the womb, sun behind the clouds, fire in the wood, fragrance in flowers, gold in quartz, microbes in blood and life in the body. He is not very far, but is nearer to us than we are to ourselves.

When is God ?————-

God is Supreme Being, the creator and ruler of the universe.

His attributes are: infinite power, limitless wisdom, boundless love, inex- haustible goodness, interminable justice, and absolute truth. Its glory, majesty, sovereignty is unparalleled. God’s will expresses itself everywhere as law. 

Nature is not a mere chance, collection of events, mere jumble of accidents, but an orderly affair. The planets move regularly in their orbits, seeds grow in to trees regularly, the seasons succeed each other in order. It requires the existence of an intelligent being – GOD – who is responsible for it.

LIVE AND LET LIVE -PART III

World like hand: –

The world is like a hand and its continents like our five fingers. Each finger is different and unique. Yet it is only when they all work together that whatever we put in our hand to succeeds.

Live Purposefully: –

If you do not live life on purpose you live life by accident.
Why do some days feel like a motorway pile up?
It is because you have not sorted out your purpose yet.
The highest purpose is always giving or serving others, without wanting anything in return.

This is why relaxation is always impossible if we are always on the take. There is an overall purpose of your life, and each of the many scenes, which fill your day, are opportunities to serve your purpose.
Take time to think deeply, listen to your intuition, and with patience, the rea- son why you are here, and what you uniquely have to give, will occur to you. Then you can live your life on purpose.

Charity: –

It is very good to give financial aid to the suffering, orphans and widowed, provided these three points are kept in view:

  1. a)  We should not pride ourselves on being charitable, because we are doing no more than our duty. Everything we hold is on the account of our Master.
  2. b)  In giving, we should not expect any reward either in this world or in the next; otherwise we are only lending money on interest.
  3. c)  We should not expect any kind of praise or service from those to whom we give. Such charity is very helpful for the purification of the mind.”

Respect: –

It is always easy to expect and demand respect from others. It is simple to criticize others for not being respectful or for being rude or for not showing the proper appreciation. It is difficult to ask respect from myself.

Without respect I can never gain respect from others. Without self-respect I will always be performing self-defeating actions. Without self-respect I will always be looking outside myself and will constantly be at the whims and fancies of other people’s dispositions. I cannot get respect by asking for it. I only receive it when I give it to myself and to others.

Manage Emotions: –

When the energy of our consciousness is out of our control – the mind is ag- itated. We are being emotional. The solution is to detach from the inner storms, stand back and observe the hurricane pass. Detached observation with- draws the energy, which your emotions require to sustain them. When you watch your own anger, it dies. If you don’t detach from it, and observe it, it will be your master. Today is the day to practice positive, detached observation, and each emotion-filled moment is the opportunity. This is ‘real’ work. The work of one who is a master of his or her own consciousness. Are you a master or a slave?

Never Battle: –

Never fight. Nothing is worth fighting for. Wisdom never fights, it waits pa- tiently, speaks positively, releases easily, sees benefit in everything and envisions a future of abundance…knowing that all needs will be met at the right moment, in the right way. If you think life is a struggle you will always be struggling, if you think life is a breeze, your attitudes and actions will convey lightness and easiness. And that’s what attracts everything you need, and much more. Make today a breeze not a battle.

Sin Bin: –

It’s a great idea in sport. Too many fouls and you’re out of the game for a short period. The same happens in real life, but we are not aware of it. Sin essentially means forgetfulness, or more specifically, to forget yourself, to forget who you truly are, a pure, peaceful and loving spiritual being who occupies and animates a physical form. It is this forgetfulness that makes us commit what we call sinful action. If another person insults you, and you become angry in response, the sin is the anger, which you create not the insult. You are asleep to the truth that you just hurt yourself, and that you are the creator of your anger not the other person. And now you have a recording in your consciousness that contains an image of the other surrounded by the energy of anger. You put it there, not them. Next time you see them, up comes the anger again, and in that moment you are at your least effective, paralyzed by self created anger, you are effectively out of the game until you cool down. Interesting isn’t it. Never get angry, at anything, or anyone, anytime. It’s a sin!

LIVE AND LET LIVE – PART II

When you build a home, every brick counts. When you build character, every thought counts.

GOOD THOUGHTS AND ACTIONS (With concept of Live And Let Live)

Good relationships: –

In order to create good relationships…

  • –  with your mind, think about what you have to learn from others,
  • –  with your eyes, look into good qualities of others,
  • –  with your words, recognize, value and appreciate their accomplishments,
  • –  with your actions, cooperate and do something for others.Good Feelings: –Good feelings for others are like ointments that can heal wounds and re-es- tablish friendship and relationships. Good feelings are generated in the mind, are transmitted through your attitude and are reflected in your eyes and smile. Smiling opens the heart and a glance can make miracles happen.

Be a humming bird: –

No matter how bad people may seem, they possess at least one virtue. Be like the humming bird and pick out the sweetness of everyone’s character.

Love All: –

Love can never be exclusive. The sun does not choose to shine on some flowers in the garden and not others. Love is inclusive and has many faces – caring, listening, sharing from the heart, just accepting someone for what they are right now, is all acts of love, as long as you seek nothing in return. It all starts with acceptance of yourself – you’re just fine as you are right now, warts and all. It’s not that you will stay that way forever – but you might, if you don’t accept. The secret key to the greatest door called love is acceptance. First yourself, then others (especially the ones you currently resist) and even- tually all.

Kindness: –

Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates perceptiveness. Kindness in giving creates love.

Resolve Conflict: –

There has probably never been a time where there has been so much fear and conflict across the world, not just across oceans and borders but also across the breakfast table. In fact many now prefer conflict to peace, as they become addicted to the actions of anger and aggression, and the adrenaline rush, which results. They don’t really want conflict to end, in fact, they will say that some conflict is good to get things done and stimulate change. They are not aware that they are killing themselves. All conflict is simply a symp- tom of attachment to a position. And as we know, this generates fear, and fear, if allowed to stay, eventually kills it’s host. All solutions are based on detachment or letting go. But that will be difficult until we can see that all possession is an illusion, that we have nothing to lose and that there are no victories in winning.
