In fact, it is the written version of many thoughts that I have had regarding the subject. The article also supports my views on religion compared to scientology. It presents a happy medium between the two. Some of the text makes clear suggestions of better ways to live your life with religion. Some sort of religion surrounds nearly every
In this regard, it is important to note that all these religious groups share certain commonalities that influence their tolerance outlook (Picard and Madinier 14). Even though Hinduism is divided into many distinctive movements and sects, they accommodate one another. For instance, the worship of the goddess of music Sarawasti by some people while others worship her husband Lord Bragma implies a common background, even if some people might not agree. Hindus do not seek to proselytize the communities that do not belong to their religious outfit but exist together in harmony and peace. Essentially, religious syncretism brings the Hindu people together through shared culture, beliefs and
Knowledge is important in order to produce meaning and purpose in life for all humans to set and consequently achieve goals. When it comes to producing meaning and purpose in life, many people will use different approaches. Many like me would seek religious guidance through personal and shared religious knowledge which I will analyze within my essay. For others they may follow a non-religious ethical code which will allow them to live life according to ethical theories such as existentialism and Nietzsche. The knowledge questions I will be exploring throughout this essay are ‘To what extent are the ways of knowing Intuition and reason conflicting or emergent WOK in building personal knowledge?’ and ‘To what extent does personal and shared Religious
Ultimately, religion might end up serving whatever fits each person 's expectations. For the optimistic who has been raised in a caring family that teaches the importance of religion, faith will encompass the meaning of existence and the will to survive. However, for the pessimistic who has grown up in a neighborhood where religious minorities are persecuted, faith is just a burden that might limit life. Therefore, our experiences and expectations shape the influence of religion on us. Being part of a conservative Christian family, I have always witnessed religion as an imperative player in the process of sickness and death.
Meditation has a healing and creative power for Muslims therefore allowing for inner growth and bringing them closer to God. The teachings of Muhammad and the Koran include the teachings and symbol story of the Muslim faith which can be conveyed through not only mediation but writing, dance, weaving, architecture, geometry and calligraphy. Thus everything is holy and the religion can be expressed everywhere but meditation allows Muslims to express their religion anywhere and anytime as it does not need any sort of materials such as pen and paper, just a space where they can be close to god. The aim of mediation is to prevent the mind from straying from God. Active mediation through prayer and song bring them closer to God.
When it comes to my family I can sacrifice my need for them because I value them. Another value I have is because of spiritual/ religious belief. I was raised as a Hindu so my values were very cultural based. I followed all the things I was told because that was surrounded by me and others had same values. When there is a problem in my life I try to look back at my religious believe to give me strength.
"Spiritulity refers to a broad set of principles that transcend all religions. Spirituality is about the relationship between ourselves and something larger. That something can be the good of the community or the people who are served by your agency or school or with energies greater than ourselves. Spirituality means being in the right relationship with all that is. It is a stance of harmlessness toward all living beings and an understanding of their mutual interdependence.” (Kaiser 2000) It involves the ways in which people fulfill what they hold to be the purpose of their lives, a search for the meaning of life and a sense of connectedness to the universe.
After all, worship in Islam is a part of all the aspects of life. Muslims maintain and balance religious duties and the usual everyday responsibilities, while being aware of their accountability with Allah in the hereafter. When people worship god, it gives them a sense of peace, this results from submitting to the god, the creator. He is the only one who is worthy
Traditionally, boys are not taught anything about the anatomy of women, thus making those very ignorant to the struggle women face on a daily basis with their bodies which re more complex than the males. Religion, on the other hand, is also very uncompromising when it comes to teaching sexual education in schools, the church more especially insists on absolute abstinence until one is properly and legally married. Like in many African countries, South Africa's sex education does not go beyond AIDS prevention teaching, which people believe that the threat of contracting the STD will delay sexual intercourse until marriage
Religion is basic set of beliefs or attitude and practices that usually agreed upon by a group of people. These set of beliefs concern the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, and involve devotional and ritual observances. They also often contain a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs. A man indicates a natural tendency towards faith and adores everything that he or she considered as superior or hard to understand. According to Paul Connelly (1996), he define that religion is well-born in a effort to depute and order beliefs, imaginings, feeling and actions that arise in response to direct experience of the divine and the spiritual.
