We have created a God-fearing society, instead of loving, claiming superiority of one religion over other, and of one being over another fellow being. All that is propagated in the name of God, by the claimed "all-knowers" of God, are manifestations of ignorance, asking for “what nots,” "in the name of God," portraying God as a judgmental, leash-whipping trainer, dictator—which couldn't be more apart from truth—is appalling. God is thus kept confined to particular forms, asking for sacrifices, as if we have something that God doesn’t have and has to thus beg or impose. God is said to be found only through specific rituals, failing which, condemnation is said to be assured, yet, how do we explain the good tidings from nowhere? How do we explain the happenings, in complete contradictions to the apparent contradictions? How do we explain the appearance of beings, forwarding our purpose, without even our asking or our knowing them, till the moment we do.
The turbulence and strife, that the world is rife with, we have created by creating a notion of a God external to us. With the creation of a God separate from us, we have theologies fostering separation. A God, external to us, is easy to blame and easier to impose: in the name of God. We have deified God, but we haven’t been able to create an edifice that honors our creation, our very essence....
But then, with evolution en masse, life's functioning prevailing always, God working, in, as and through us, healing reversals are ensured, and are in progress, too (through many luminaries, who have owned up the responsibility for the same, saying “yes” to the oneness with God), as is the trademark of an all-loving, unconditional essence, which we call God.... Truly, as Neale Donald Walsch’s Conversations with God, Communion with God, and all is his books, for that matter, gently declare: Ours is a way, not the only way.
We run from pillar to post to find God, yet, not recognizing the host: our own selves. And all, we realize, when we go one way, within, as therein lies all the answers that we have ever sought, are seeking and will...as therein resides the essence, the Source Energy of everything, which we call: Thy name is God. And as we proceed, reversals ensured, it is assured that atrocities “in the name of God” gives way to acknowledging the synchronicities of God, finding it within—finding Its synergy in and as our very own pulsating energy, within and without.
