Is Religion Necessary?

Some would argue, most wars have been triggered by religion. Others ask – why if there’s a God, do wars etc happen at all?

One thing’s for certain, in today’s dog eat dog society we need something to help bring our lives back into perspective – but is it religion? Are we capable of change without God? The Buddhist view, is that we humans are not only responsible for the state of the world, but also fully capable of putting it right.  Christians may argue we cannot do this without Gods help. What do you think?

The Mind Debate?

 The western world – a hub for mindfulness, meditation and all things mind related. But what is the mind? And where is it located? Let’s debate!

In today’s fast moving societies where targets and deadlines dominate &  our economic situation is constantly changing. It’s no surprise people are trying to find ways of quieting the mind, to manage stress and deal with every day life. It’s true we talk about it every day, but even if the most skilled surgeon on the planet cut open our head and body he/or she would not find anything that resembles mind. So where & what exactly is the mind?

what are your views?

The God Dilemma

Many perceptions exist about the existence of God – who he is, what form he takes & how he created the world etc….

It all depends I guess on which teachings you live by. Although Buddhism stands with a great respect for all religions, it doesn’t recognise God as creator. Here’s my dilemma on the existence of God which I hope you might help with…….

If as many believe, God created the Universe – where was he when he did so? If God is a person (Many address him as the Father) then from whom was he born? And doesn’t this imply the existence of a universe at the time of his birth? If as many believe, God is an energy Omnipotent & Omnipresent, where did that energy exist when it created itself?

I’d love to have a conversation and hear your thoughts – let’s have the debate 😊
