Understanding Religion

The wheel
Originally uploaded by Mystic Lens.
In whatever religion you follow, that belief, tradition, and practice is meant to guide you to experience your true origin, which is Infinity.

The religion should get rid of your self-belittlement and limitation. It should inspire and lift you to your full human capacity. Instead of this result, you usually learn prejudice; you learn how to divide humanity; and you learn to love and hate based on belonging to certain thoughts, feelings, or practices.

... We do not even understand the basic concept in the word 'religion.' That term comes from the Latin religio. It means 'to look back at your origin.'

And what is your origin? Spirit!

And what is your end? Spirit!

So what are you fighting about?

~ Yogi Bhajan

[ Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un ]

Surely we belong to the Primordal, Ultimate Spirit (God) and surely we will return to Him. (The Quran) Pin It Now!
