I want to save you, My religion is right! 

A christian was asking a muslim :

How will you get saved ?

Muslim : i pray to Allah , and believe in our prophet Mohammed.

Christian : but it’s not true , you must surrender to jesus , he is the son of god and through him you will escape the wrath of hell.

Muslim : your testament is false , jesus is called Issa and it s wrong to divide god into a trinity that s a blasphemy.

Christian : no one can be saved unless..

Atheist interrupts both : sorry i heard you both arguing about being saved and god … 

Do you really believe there is god ? What a pitty , all your scriptures are nonsense and fiction.

U should believe in science , we re just an evolution of our ancestors , there is no hell or heaven , u just die and life moves on.

Christian and muslim : oh plz you atheists are doubtful and so narrow minded , your science can only know what is seen, but what about the unseen? 

The quor’an and bible date 1400 to 3000 years old.

Hindu : excuse me, i respect your books but our baghvad gita and vedas dates to 5000 years old and more, our hindu religion extend to even further, we have a trinity way before you christians,..

Christian: so you re mocking me? Your hindus religion is all evil and devilish, your many gods are demons…our priests warned us about you

Hindu: so you are throwing 1.3 billion people to hell assuming we all worship the devil? 

Where did compassion, meditation came from?

We have the most peacful religion, why do u judge us and assume we are all evil? We know god is one and the source is one, we do have gods but we know these are symbolic gods

Muslim: allah is one, seems hindus and christians like to keep believing in gods, saints and u dissect god into many, our qur’an is the truth.

Convert both for the sake of your safety

Buddhist : you keep arguing about your books and gods, who said there is a god outside your experience!

Did you manage to reflect, meditate? It s all in your mind, your thoughts! Once you keep meditating you will recognize the oneness of all the universe, your gods and saints and pointings to the truth that you experience.

Atheist:i find some truth in your buddhism, we know it s in the mind and meditation is beneficial, but you guys take it to the extreme, and believe in reincarnation and nirvana, you just flip between a religion amd science

Taoist: the source is one, what are you all arguing about, god or tao are a name for the un-named , it s not the real name, the source can be realized and the energy is one.

Arguing, discussions, loud voices convincing each other…

Suddenly a kid pass by : why you are fighting about god? 

All : stop it kid, this is an adult matter

Kid :how do each one of you pray?

…well we sit in silence and

-recite our qur’an

-pray the holy father

-we meditate

-i follow morals and walk alone for some stilness

-we choose to be good and silent in our temples.

Kid : did you notice you all get in silence but use many ways?

…………..

What do u mean?

Kid : all your action start from inaction.

Did you ever wonder why we all have same body, same brain, same mind?

But you fight over nothing, did someone visit heaven and came back?

Did u try to pause and  notice that the breath unites us, humanity is our religion?

All…..    !

Kid : use your own way discretly, the truth cannot be but one

There is not many truth!!

God is not here to watch us fight between each other

We created these arguments

Is nt time to reconcile with each other?

Science and religion and all your scriptures are all different rivers, all leading to one ocean.

All : we do feel ashame from our quarels , we must use our wisdom to enhance our own link with god . And remain silent….

The kid disapeared…

Where is he ? Says all..

Who is he?

We dunno what to say….

Hundred of years killing each other..and we couldnt accept each other.

We must live more peacfully and care about our improvement not the others

The kid appeared in all the minds : i love you all,

Don’t fight, we re all one, do not use each other, kill each other

All …   we don t know what to say,

We have been blind since hundreds and thousand of years…

Kid : i m each one of you, i was born blank with no prior kowledge

Keep me warm and loved…i miss you..
Silence rised…

Peace rised,  each one looked up and inward and said thank you!

Everyone left home, disapointed but willing to agree on silence, love and compassion

-yes we are humans…

Truth cannot be divided


The end.

Music And God

Music since early ages, has been used consciously or unconsciously to relate to God or whatever name you want to call “the deity, the source, the omnipresent”

If you notice all religions whether organized or not use chanting, humming to prepare your body and mind to connect with the unknown.

Can you conceive going into church without hearing any melodic prayer, or to a mosque without hearing  a melodic vocal tune? Same with buddhist famous “OM” chanting. And literally all others too.

So what is that amazing link, is music and melody the link to GOD?

In fact science has proven that any sound with a tune or specific vibration can alternate your  body and brain chemistry within minutes and even seconds.

Much faster than reciting words.

God is mystery residing in tunes.

Most famous composers and some individuals knows that!

Think again how melody and music is bonding you to God, then the question will arise…  Is god Music?

All i know is that i feel his presence deeply through music.

Musical divine blessings to everyone.

Isn’t time Christianity remove benches from church?

Dear Human! not only Christians

but for that part maybe more targeted for Christians.

Isn’t time we remove benches from the church?

before jumping to conclusion and start judging me! Christianity is facing nowadays a snob-ism, chaotic, confused era, due to other religious practice revealed and i’m not speaking only about Islam way of praying on the floor

How do Buddhist pray? Yogi’s , taoist, Sikh, Islam, Hindus, even early Christians and mystics

On the floor, on the ground!

and allow me , i’m not speaking from a shallow point of imitation.

but being on the ground, sitting down, being in groups in this  hour on Sunday can help us maybe 10-20% to regain humbleness, modesty, feeling the presence of god, ..humility is needed.

As in most or my articles i never generalize over all believers , religious or targeted group.

I as a seeker, who was raised Christian, still feel an enormous respect to Jesus him self, more than the system of the church.

what makes us so different, that we have to pray in that 1 hour, sitting on benches, coming with our fancy clothes, ladies holding their purses, women wearing all kind of odd clothing, men wearing cravats, hair gel, sun glasses raised above the head.??

I am not here to judge, but when i decided to not hear that same phrase” do not care “,”and simply pray” , i was asking my self what is the reason of people looking right and left, up and down, back and fourth, checking their watches?

because you cant sit in the middle of a  chaos and eye capturing stuff and say YOU must pray!

Once we enter the church, does the holy spirit with all god consciousness jumps on us and raise us to samadhi or the seventh heaven? are we elite and special? NO

I raise this question and demand to reformist POPE FRANCIS. you are trying to do many things, that seems more important such as the behavior of some priests, and you have addressed the ego of some priests and have invited them once again  to be among the needed , and i don’t mean only the hungry people! Our soul can be hungry too

Where did Jesus use to pray? i ask you POPE FRANCIS with love… you know well in nature!

under the trees, kneeling, siting, gathering!

i don’t want that answer that “there are groups that belong to all kind of saints that practice and learn while being joined humbled on the floor”, i know that.

but when we regain humility to sit on the floor, take of our shoes, high heels, fancy wearing, sit on the floor, kneel, as all the mystics did, and as Jesus him self.

Please no Preaches  to me that i have a conspiracy to clone Islam way of praying.

PS : i applaud them for that!

but it’s way before Judaism and many traditions 5 to 10 000 years old.

where did Jesus invite us to pray , isn’t in our room with one unique prayer “our father who art in heaven..?”

_the whole ritual of Christians must change, and now no one talks to me about faith and what matter is inside only , NO.

we are a body! we are a mind and we are a soul.

sure we are spiritual being having a momentary body, but we carry it right?

sitting on these fancy benches as we’re in a movie theater , wow that’s a great deal in praying and concentrating enough

do you dare Dear POPE Francis. to go back to the roots of Jesus method?

kneel, sit, wear humble and loose clothing,

change please all unwanted traditions that are spoken in oriental church when they speak “other than oriental” and change please all “intellectual” sophisticated mumbling.and these 40 unwanted minuted where people are praying for TIME TO PASS BY FASTER.

it’s not reading a magical spell. we shouldn’t be afraid as these are taboo

the body when it sits on the floor, it gain it’s normal position, it’s resting position, our hormones and harmony gaining back their original state, ,, btw who created our body? isn’t god…?

Till when we have to stay sophisticated? until all churches closes in Europe?

focusing on Africa to feed the hungry to convert them cannot lost long, once they get a full stomach and can work them selves they will drop again the Christian way of praying

we do not have a daily system of prayng. we need a real ritual, enough of this freelance style of praying

sure we can speak to god through our selves the way we want.

but being too much in the clouds, waiting until the mass finish so the families go have launch and gather is not the solution.

and what a scene in the palm Sunday, all Christians outside the church having a fashion display , picturing millions of pics with the smart phones.

enough is enough

Pope Francis i ask you again, and if you agree to meet me, to make a real reform in the church.

the results are not great!

i am no one. i applaud your courage and humility, but you must flip the table as Jesus flipped it .

enough of 70 000 saints, pictures, stuff, fancy chairs.

all can start inside the church, no problem, on the floor, “closer to the heart rituals, holding hands, closing our eyes

changing few subjects of the repetitive paragraphs, the lost son, Jesus healed this healed that.

while i see churches closing, i see Buddhist, yogis, Islam all of them rising, new atheism also.

i don’t want anyone to think from my article that i am more right than other religions

i am not in favor for something against something, but i cannot watch something supposed to be holy ….to collapse, just cause of our blindness took over.

Our egoic self , our fights among the choir  groups :”who wants to sing more and in front for ex”,  another example is amount of church paid concerts for priest to brag about their music, i ve seen much

i live in Lebanon where oriental church are in their apogee of ego and selfishness

again not generalizing.

do it POPE Francis. let us sit as JESUS sat on the floor.

or we’re above him??….
