Religion, God & Spirituality

Which came first?

If you could answer it correctly, I am sure you are more spiritual than religious. A person who could correctly differentiate religion and spirituality only can answer it correctly. Unfortunately most of my friends are thinking both are same  L.

A person could be spiritual without even following any religion.

Wait, please think a couple of minute and define what religion is? What spirituality is? Even you know well please do think once again before reading further.

And my answer is, spirituality came first, God came second and at last religion born in our mankind’s brain.

Have you ever questioned yourself, who created these all?  Why It/she/he created all these?  If someone or something have created all of these then how it was created?

If your answer is yes you have spiritual thoughts. And the answers given by your own religion is not enough to satisfy you logical mind than you are more spiritual than religious.

Even a rational atheist may have spiritual hunger, but am not sure about animals. Do monkeys have GOD? Also am sure NOT all the atheists are rationalist.

Our ancestors and even most of us are not able to be 100% rationalist. Their spiritual logical thinking stops at a point. There they start to believe God.

God or Gods?

My answer would be “GOD”

But I never become fool enough to ask rest of the world to see the God as same as I see the God. Everyone have their own feeling and taste. Also their spiritual hunger also varies lot. Some may feel enough with single piece of Pizza. But even fore pieces may not enough for someone.

Who is right? Is it right to force the first person to eat more pieces? Or is it right force first person to stop with first piece?

Everyone have their own perspective about their own God.

But a community may have few common opinions about their Gods. So they can become a society with a common god and they may create some common rituals and ceremonials to worship their God in a common way.  The rituals and ceremonials would be based on their environment, climate condition, available foods and available animals. Also it would base on their common fears, requirements and vulnerabilities.  Because these things are mainly affects their lifestyle.  

What will happen if two different societies from two different environments happened to meet in a common place?

They have to give a name to their rituals and lifestyle, right? Here comes religion.

To be a part of religion you don’t need to be spiritual. Even some religion doesn’t have God too. Communism is a religion without God J .  Because most of them believing and following it’s concepts as rituals without questioning it.  

I wish to write more on this in “Religion, God & Spirituality – II”

Hanian hashimi ka? In such cases, we try to see who created all these things? What is the power that controls these things? The spirit, religion, and the human being.

In my Brain I came first then my parents came

Please understand my question Brother.

And it's all about my spiritual thoughts. Not intended to hurt any ones belief.

Thank you Mishaikh

hay wait, what is eternity?

And if you have time, please answer to "Which will rise first in Human Brain, Question? or Answer?"

Allah is here from the eternity.  He is here even before the creation made for human being.  He is the sole and only creater, every thing in the universe is HIS Creation.

So your sequence should be like this

God, religion and spirituality.

With the sequence it is easier to discuss your view point UNIMBIGUOUSLY!

Dear AReality,

//So it is not necessary to agree to how one defines it. everyone may direct it to his own mental level//

//If you are right then others are right in their own way//

Really these are what I mean by

//But I never become fool enough to ask rest of the world to see the God as same as I see the God. Everyone have their own feeling and taste.//

again I am saying I never become fool enough to ask rest of the world to see the God as same as I see the God. Everyone have their rights :)

//Why you expect others to follow but your definition of spirituality// hay AReality , please spot me where I have mentioned so????

//for which you have blackmailing sentence " Only spiritual can answer".// Really this is not my sentence AReality. some one ate more than half of the sentence :(

And my really sentence is below :)

//A person who could correctly differentiate religion and spirituality only can answer it correctly// I never said " Only spiritual can answer"

Thank you for your time and interest AReality

 Dear setareh

I am very happy to know that my blog inspired some one!!!

Actually I too did this blog by the inspiration of one person :)

I am eager to read you blog setareh...

Being morel and Believing morality is one of a door to enter in to spirituality.

Hay setareh, really I felt happy to discuses with the people who have true spiritual hunger... :)

Thanks again Onee-chan :)

//(6) For you is your religion, and for me is my religion."// Thank you for allowing me with my perspective.

//When we use culture, it will always be changed time to time// If a community(religion) found an ever perfect culture or "way of living", then how it would change time to time? what is the need to change it time to time Onee-chan?

Dear  Mishaikh,

Which will rise first in Human Brain, Question? or Answer?

The Question is who created these creatures? (spirituality)

The answer is 'God' 

please read those words again, I am talking about which born first in Human Brain.

Comment by Mishaikh on September 21, 2015 at 4:26

Spirituality (like any other knowledge or wisdom) is the creation of Allah. How can it be possible that a creation came prior to its creator?

I am sorry there is still ambiguity in your statement!
