Recent terror acts across the globe is not a recent phenomena, Terror across the globe is reflection of our own beliefs and lifestyle. I always believed growth of terrorism is a Religious contribution across the globe.

It’s strange but true, all fights happen in the name of love. You love your country so you fight. You love money so you fight. You love your religion so you fight. It’s lowest ebb of Human consciousness when you love something and so much love becomes hatred and hatred turns violent and violence leads to war.

Over a period of years the nature of political environment across the globe crossed paths with the Religion. Each religion became dominant force thru what they can control and what they can’t control. Politicians across the globe found efficient way of vote bank thru religious routes. So true value at which these religions created took a back seat. What became apparent is that what you control out of religion.

Look at the biography of our enlightened Masters. Be it Christ, Be it Buddha, Be it Mohammad, Be it Krishna – the story has been always of compassion. These Masters gave birth to a community or religion which was based on the very enlightened energy or compassionate way they lived. As the followers formed a community slowly these communities became less interested in the teachings of the founder or teacher but more in the power these groups commanded. More importantly true teachings of these masters got lost in translation.

Do yo think Mohammad if alive would have approved terror acts today? Do you think Christ would have allowed wars in the name of enemy? Do you think Buddha approved Bombings?

Really the need of the hour is one more Mohammad not Muslims, need of the hour is one more Christ not Christians , need of the the hour is not Hindus but a Krishna, need of the hour is a Buddha not Buddhists.

All we need right now is an Alchemy of an individual. Once the individual is moving beyond mind he is moving beyond Violence. We need to work on individuals. Mass religion needs to die soon. Man needs to find his own religion. Man needs to find his own Christ consciousness – call it Buddha consciousness or Mohammad consciousness. Stop being a disciple be an explorer. Be a free bird, Be at peace and Happy.

Not Christian or Jew or Muslim,
not Hindu, Buddhist, Sufi or Zen.
Not any religion, or cultural system.
I am not from the East or the West,
nor out of the ocean or up
from the ground, not natural or ethereal,
not composed of elements at all.
I do not exist, am not an entity in this world
or the next,
did not descend from Adam and Eve
or any origin story.
My place is placeless, a trace of the traceless.
Neither body nor soul.
I belong to the beloved
have seen the two worlds as one
and that one call to and know,
First, last, outer, inner, only that
breath breathing human

Lots of love suresh
