Scarcity Of Faith
« on: September 05, 2009, 04:44:38 AM »
According to an article by R.Mark in "New England Journal of Medicine", feelings play an important role in our life. All healing therapies basically aims on maintaining a proper balance between our mind, body, heart and soul. A good faith always imparts a healthy and true feeling of love in our heart which helps in fighting ailments. What do you think about this principle?

faith implies religious beliefs. and while this may help someone who is ailing, it is really about finding the strength within yourself.
if all you see is 'suffering' then that is all you will feel. look for what is better in yourself and see only that.

I think the main reason behind certain common ailments and depression is that man behaves like a robot with scarcity of love and healthy feelings. According to a recent article in Nature magazine, a good positive thinking can enhance level of neurotransmitters in our body.

robots have no feeling and no self expression at all. humans aren't like that. perhaps it's denying or suppression our feelings, thoughts and emotions that is unhealthy.

I am not talking about each and every people. I mean that sometimes we become so emotionless towards certain things and behave just like a Robot who has no faith and beliefs which can brings a hindrance in path of our spiritual journey.

just because people do not adhere to a particular religion does not make them robots. and should the time come in their lives that they begin to deeply consider subjects of a spiritual nature, well that is best done with inward calmness anyway.

also, not everyone is going to begin shouting and waving in the name of their spiritual beliefs, that does not mean that they do not have some deeply held belief. to accuse people who don't spend a portion of their time preaching to the masses in some way as being 'robots' is also false.

I don't think being religious means to stick towards a particular God or book. It means to have a healthy feeling of faith and love towards God and his creations (human being). Its essential to treat everyone as a creation of God to enjoy the real joy of whatever religion you follow.

and those that do not believe in any 'god'/creator? are they robots, incapable of feeling or spiritual growth?

I have only one sentence in response to your answer, "Help them who are in needs and heaven is yours". If someone believes in humanity, he believes in God and if someone believes in God, he should believes in humanity. Even if a religious person has no faith in mankind, he is a robot for me.

faith and spiritual growth do not require a belief in a 'god'/creator to be experienced. nor does the desire to help others or lead an otherwise 'good' life.

So what is the basic aim of our life in your viewpoint? To know yourself /to help others /any other?

life does not have an aim, nor does it have a purpose. the bird is not questioned as to why it spends it's day flying. what makes you think it must be different for humans? if we choose to dedicate ourselves to a particular path, that does not make us greater than any other, nor any other less than ourselves.

I think there is no life without aim or goal towards which you are dedicated. It varies from person to person. But if you will go deeply through life of some great religious leader, you will find that they came here with an aim to teach us the true meaning of life and its importance for us.

Love is the soul heart of any religion or beliefs. One can't love God without loving his creations, the mankind. And this feeling of love can be developed only through a true faith.

I think one can't discard love from his life. Without love, your life is just like a robot because any felling or faith only arises inside you through a true love for others.
