The Kingdom is within you, and worshipping yourself gets you further than worshipping someone else. Waiting for a savior or messiah to come save you is not the way, only you can save yourself.[/b]
Religion or not, my point is to trust in personal experience and not theories and ideas.
I am spiritual, but I don't follow any religion of spesific belief system, I follow my own personal experiences. I would rather see the truth about existence myself, than believe in other peoples words about existence that has no proofs to back them up..[/b]
You say that many of them would reply, \"We wanted to get to God, and our religion was one of the ways to achieve this.\"
Well yes that is what many of them think and believe, but did they really get any closer to God?
IF I should be part of a religion, it would have to be one that let you experience the spirituality, and see for yourself there is more than this pysical existence. Not just a religion that tell you if you follow various rules you may meet God when you die. You may go to heaven, or hell. And then once dead you can experience your spiritual being. Why not rather experience this before, right here and now, so you could get a deeper understanding of what awaits?
But there is no need for something to be called religions, what there is a need for is information and knowledge about life, existence and truth. Schools and such should focus more on spirituality as well as the other subjects they teach us from we are kids. I call it science, facts and personal experience.
But then again, this would give us free will, and less controle and power for the existing religions and their leaders.
