Terrorism and Spiritualism

January 9th, 2009 by Jashodhara Purkayastha

If you want to see God, observe yourself properly.

People describe the religion and spirituality as same. Religion involves some ritualistic exercise. In religion, people use some institution where they can perform some kind of ritualistic exercise.

I have some view about these two doubtful connotations.

Religion cannot change the inner enemies.

Everyone in this world has some goal in life and a questions in their mind. Spirituality is the answer. 

The human life is a drama, whatever role we get we have to perform the role well. We have to know, how to perform it well? As a human being we have our senses,consciousness, mind, intellect etc. By using them in a correct way, we are free to choose our own building, dress, rituals, belief etc. and perform the role well.

Terrorist choose the wrong building where the foundation is not concrete and falls down after some days. They do not use their intellect and believe in wrong ideas. They always go against truth i.e. day lights up as knowledge and night stumbles towards ignorance. These are within us.

Knowledge and ignorance both are inside us. Knowledge can be acquired.

According to Swami Vivekananda,”We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves.If what we are now has been the result of our own past action, it certainly follow that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present action;so we have to know how to ACT.”

Weakness is the root cause of Ignorance and ignorance leads to misery—Swami Vivekananda said.

If anyone wants to give something to the world, one should have lot of perseverance and will power. Destruction (Terrorism) is not the  way to reach ones goal. Construction(Spiritualism) is the will power. By taking up a good constructive ideas ,one can finally  reach to its goal.

“You can not believe in God until you believe in  yourself
