One may believe
in religion or not... belief in God or a higher power (as some atheists
believe) is an essential must. Why? For the simple reason that a
small essence of God Almighty lives within all human beings in form
of our soul atman within. In absence of the soul... the body would
just decay and die. We human beings are a part of the complete whole.
God Almighty cannot exist without human beings.
our soul atman the spirit within soul atman
which is a minuscule form of God within us... cannot purify itself
on its own. As in the mining process... our soul atman within requires
manifesting a body so that it can work out its karma.
dross within the soul atman can only be removed by manifesting a life form. In
every act of the cosmic life cycle... the existence of God is inevitable. our soul atman the spirit within
relationship with God is inherent... it has always been so since times immemorial.
in religion is a faith. If I need to travel the spiritual path... belief in religion
is not a necessity. I can complete the journey until enlightenment (kaivalya jnana)
and salvation (moksha) in absence of religion.
helps one live the physical manifest life of 70 to 80 years. Belief in God helps
one complete the cosmic journey and reach the last... 8.4 million manifestation!
Beyond that it is a straight journey to kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha in Hinduism)
by our soul atman within.
