religion is an organized collection of beliefscultural systems, and world views that relate humanity to an order of existence.

Many religions may have organized behaviors, clergy, a definition of what constitutes adherence or membership, holy places, and scriptures. The practice of a religion may also include rituals, sermons, commemoration or veneration of a deity, gods or goddesses, sacrifices, festivals, feasts, trance, initiations, funerary services, matrimonial services, meditation, prayer, music, art, dance, public service or other aspects of human culture. Religions may also contain mythology.

The word religion is sometimes used interchangeably with faith, belief system or sometimes set of duties; however, in the words of Émile Durkheim, religion differs from private belief in that it is “something eminently social”.

Those we follow today, in all the different religions have one main “representative”: Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad.

They were all teachers who taught love.

What has happened to that teaching? 

In my humble opinion, it has been distorted and has become a weapon. A weapon of fear, control, stature in society. The main values have been lost.

Where is the love? Where is “do unto others”?

We ALL are connected through HUMANITY!!

    • TY …. me feelings exactly. I grew up in organized religion. Eventually drifted away and realized what it was doing. I think it’s for the benefit of the “organizers”, hugs!!
