A Vaccum Cleaner Called God

Please God help me! My life is hard and I can’t see a way forward. If you help me God, I promise to pray more.

Words I’m sure are familiar to almost every believer and non believer in God.  As a Buddhist, I don’t accept the God concept, but even I’ve begged for help in times where there’s seemed little hope.  Looking down from my 17th floor window I see road rage from people who feel it’s their ‘God Given’ right to get to work first. Horns beeping, sirens wailing, rushing to traffick accidents.  There’s news on the TV about a girl who left Britain at 15yrs to join ISIS and now wants to come back. The man who got stabbed whilst trying to rescue a stranger in trouble & the political war on Brexit.  So much for a single mind to cope with and its only 7am.  But tonight in the silence of darkness,   down on their knees begging God for forgiveness, to make the child they hit during a fit of road rage pull through. To show mercy on the Jihadi bride & to sort out the problems created by Brexit. They’ll all be there on their knees evading personal responsibility, expecting God to suck up all their problems and absolve them like a Dyson vacuum cleaner. But if their prayers aren’t answered, we all know who’s to blame don’t we?

So here’s today’s discussion thread… If there is indeed a God, why expect him to constantly clean up the carnage created by man/woman?

What is the Purpose of Human Life?

Why have we been born human? And what’s our main purpose in life?

A question someone asked me recently during one of our deep philosophical conversations. My reply was its my belief we were brought into this world as humans to end suffering. She looked at me and said “Well where does God  fit in then?” The thing is, I have no clue where God fits in if I’m being truthful. As humans we’ve been born with a moral & ethical conscience – something no other species has.  We know it’s wrong to cause harm to another  sentient being and whilst we may not always act on that knowledge, we have it.  As humans we are tangible, we can touch each other and if we work together we can achieve great things.

So what are your thoughts on the Purpose of Human Life?
