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.

SELF-AWARENESS

SELF-AWARENESS: – 

Life is a Challenging Journey. So Challenge we must meet and Journey we must complete. Every time a challenge comes in one’s life, whether it is about family, job, friends, personal relationships etc., one has to be aware of the following stages of awareness.

Stage 1. AWARENESS OF HOPE AND FEAR:

Your desires are dissatisfied; something you want is meeting with opposition. There is underlying hope and fear. Your mind does not know what action to take. Every action has its consequences good or bad. There is big confusion in the mind. One gets frustrated and sometimes anger takes charge. Lot of energy is lost in thoughtlessness and one gets exhausted. The more one struggles to get free of a problem, the more he/she is trapped in to it.

Stage 2. AWARENESS OF MID WAY BETWEEN HOPE AND FEAR:

Now one is tired, taken deep breath, sitting down calmly and started rationalizing the ideas of hope and fear. Your vision extends beyond the conflict, giving you more clarity. With clear vision, you no longer feel confused. The need to struggle begins to diminish. You start to let go. You approach decisions with confidence. You meet fear realistically and it starts to lessen. You can tell that you have reached this level of awareness when you no longer feel stuck. A process has begun. With greater expansion, unforeseen forces come to your aid. You move forward according to what you desire from your life. If one rationalizes the situation further, he/she will find that following questions come in to one’s mind.

  1. Why do I perceive the whole situation in negative way?

  2. Why do I assume certain things and do not look in to facts?

  3. Why do I expect certain things from other people? One should know that positive expectations are ruled by hope and negative expectations are ruled by fear.

  4. Why do I disguise my feelings? Being emotional is equated with being out of control; which itself is an undesirable feeling.

Stage 3. SELF-AWARENESS:

This is the stage where no problem exists. Every challenge is a creative opportunity. You feel completely aligned with the forces of nature. The outer world reflects what is happening in your inner world. You feel completely safe and at home in the universe. This is the spiritual level. Now is the time to take some positive action.
