Essay on Humanity


Humanity The Best Religion 

Humanity : the only religion that can make this world worth living as the religions we are following today are not serving their real purpose. Religions today are developing as a business and for some people religions are just a product to sell and to market. Spreading love and peace and bringing us closer to ourselves and to God should be the purpose of a religion but instead of uniting religions today are dividing us. Even a single religion has so many divisions.The attachment to a particular religion makes an individual narrow minded and prejudiced towards others and thus keep him away from the truth. Because of his attachment to a particular religion doesn't allow himself to be a liberal and an open minded person. Religious extremists are destroying our peace, freedom and happiness. We should understand what the religion originally desire from us. The essence of all the religions is humanity and we all should practice only humanity to serve the real purpose of all the religions.

Man is not the creation of these religions but religions are created by man. The truth is that all the living beings and our human body is the constituent of five elements kept alive by heat and light. Our source is one and our destination is one. Thus why to adopt different paths ? Why to pursue different ideologies?

The best thing about humanity is that it can unite all , whether they are atheists or theists. Love, peace, happiness and God (atheist can replace god with good) all are within us so we don't need to search it anywhere. If we will sow the seeds of love, peace and happiness we will reap tons of love, peace and happiness.A person should not bother himself for the existence of God. One should become a good human being first then it won't matter whether he/she believe in god or not.

I find many people who are full of pride, anger, jealousy, cruelty are also engaged in spiritual pursuits. Most of these worship god to attain materialistic success and some of them have a false notion that ritualistic worship would give them the license to do whatever they like. Such people are not religious at all. 

A selfish man who always care for himself, his family, his religion and party can never become impartial, open minded and well wisher of others. Such a man is not useful and advantageous to the humanity in general. I saw some people who don't give food to dogs or poor and search for cows. May be their religion prefers the needs of cows over dogs and humans. I can never understand the logic behind this. 

In some religions innocent animals are killed in the name of 'bali'. I can never understand how killing can make god happy. But when you follow humanity all the living beings are alike for you. Humanity is about equality, well wishing of all and selfless thinking. Humanity not only take us closest to god it also helps us in our personal growth.

No religion is greater than 'Humanity' , 'Manavta' or 'Insaniyat'. So let's embrace humanity and begin a new way of life full of love, peace and happiness.
