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.

The Rise Of meditation, yogis & Buddhist

Dear all,

Friends and followers,

In an era and age, where chaos is the leading word! Established religions as Islam and Christianity are trying to rival again to gather more people.

(Unfortunately yeah, acting both  as parties having elections!)

It seems both have conflicts within them selves, even though predominately Islam has more challenges to prove to the world that it’s not a religion of terrorism,

The wise among the sects are the one who should find a way to stop Isis!

Christianity is probably still stable “in numbers” and  growing or trying to re form with the new pope.

there is 2 fundamentals question rising in these 2 majors religions.

what are they teaching on the level of the individual? seems to me, numbers, politics, countries, repartition of social worldly stuff are taking advantage on spiritual seeking.

I’m not generalizing, i agree there are many people , priests, cheikh’s teaching peace, love, and compassion

but that’s the problem.  WE TEACH! WE SPEAK!

how do we expect a mind in 2015-2016 to listen when the fast past of life has become 20 times faster than older generation, who can listen nowadays!!??

On the other hand, we are seeing a rise, in meditation, in that spreading word, that use to be scary for most, and also the word “yoga”, “Zen”,”Buddhism” are not negative anymore.

Let me try to elaborate little bit more.

these religion/philosophies, i call them philosophies too because they are inclusive!, they don’t teach you “become with us, or you’re doomed to hell”

that’s a plus for them nowadays!, they don’t have rules for race, colors, and cultures.

they focus on the individual how to grow in spirituality, “spirituality is not a woo-woo word”

every religion started basically by spirituality , isn’t the goal of every Christian to become close to god and more spiritual? for Islam too?

My simple question is :

An hour on Sunday, is it enough to make us close to god or inner peace?

We’re ending up talking about Christian-politics all day on TV!

Is preaching in mosques and unfortunately lot of them about killing Jews and infidels  or others, defensiveness, cause lot of them feel targeted, i do understand that, (again i’m not generalizing, but it’s very common in the middle east)

so in what way we are expecting to advance??

Buddhism, yoga, Zen, and some other eastern traditions, they get along as well, and they know that the source is one!

some call it tao, some nirvana, some samadhi, whatever.

they teach about finding your own way, and now here is their best point!

THEY TEACH {{HOW!!! TO PRACTICE!!!}}

they invite persons on HOW to take care of the body HOW to breath HOW to control emotions HOW to reach a higher state, daily practices , and I’m not talking about their god or deity devotion, it’s their right, but even their deity are not mandatory as an exam to pass hell or heaven!

the human being of 2015-2016 requires peace, aloneness, knowing what love is, re gaining his nature, his essence in being spiritual.

Christian mystics if joined on one table with Buddhist and Zen they would agree 100% , as St Therese of Avilla, St john of the cross, St Francis.

Or in Early sufism as Abd al-Qadr al-Jilani ,Ahmed al-Rifa’i, others..

Sufism also would agree 100%

but The political-religious parties, and their surface shallow talk about Islamic and Christianity teaching will lead nowhere, and let’s look around us!!

more wars, more quarrels, more conflicts!!!

For the one who consider meditation or other eastern philosophies scary! Search  in your own religion, in your mystics, find the true meaning.

YOU CANNOT FIND GOD IN THE MASS ALONE. god is inside, he/she is not separate from YOU.

look at the shared common ground in between all religion and practices

It’s the practice of silence!! and seeking inwardly! or letting go!

keep doing it!

Don’t get caught up in religion elections, and which numbers of what sect will get more votes!

The eastern were there, before us, and they are coming back, not by force, but by simple facts! and tools!

Whoever you are, whatever you do, whatever your belief is,

get silent daily for couple of min, dig into your roots of religions

even atheist have common ground in silence and accepting.

Peace and love
