This piece is about the Game of Life and how people try and control others through religion and the bible. So many times people find themselves under the thumb of those whose rhetoric is manipulating and intimidating. Perhaps why many churches are so rich

Who and Why

So many times we often ponder
Who we are and whence we come from
We search our histories whatever
Always looking wondering
Why and how we came this way
And how we are supposed to play

The Game of Life

There are many I have found
Trying so hard to confuse our minds
With rhetoric and religious sound
Preferring us a captive audience to be

Fiddlee do, fidllee dee

and people actually go and listen to this Raver!!!!!

Bible Quoters

The bible in itself
A great book to study
Filled with parables of great note
Ways to do things as of old

Full of words to be taken literally
Perhaps
By those without much brain
And then twisted by manipulators
Seeking to use us for their own means
Meanings made up in their dark selves
To slap us on the head when we
Do wrong according to their judgement
But who are they to judge!!!

A conondrum shur-ely

Fill My Pockets with your Monies

I have met so many folk like them
Who high on pulpits stand

Doom and gloom their message be
Do it my way so you be saved

(Oh oh dear God help me!)

Fill my pockets with your money
they do say

Then you will do what's right (for me)
So you see them
Hear them

Those TV evangelists
Shaking their angry fists at all in sight
The thousands who flock to see them
The Crystal Cathedral just one instance
Of such naivety

Doing for Yourself

Come up, come up and I will heal you
Of your infirmities
Just fill my hat with filthy lucre
And your sickness will go away
Your blindness will disappear
Your crutch you throw away

How can you be so stupid
You who sit there at their feet
Empty eyes gazing

Hoping desperately for a savior
To come and do for you
What you too lazy can do for yourself

Or maybe you just dont know how
So brainwashed have you been
Taught to do as others tell you
Never questioning

And thus losing self sufficiency

Teach a man to fish and he will always eat
Give him a fish and he will be back tomorrow
Tomorrow, all of his tomorrows

A Recurring Song.....

So it goes on
Time after time
Through the centuries
Man's inhumanity to man
In countless ways
We see it
Hear it
Read it
Day after day


And who is doing anything about it??????

I could tell you but you already know......

Recognition of Self

When you finally turn
To see your beautiful Self
The worthiness of who you are
In brightness you do shine

To honour your self and others
And see the Light in all
Then that day angels they will gather
And set you on the throne
Of your Beingness


and so it is

Let he who has no sin cast the first aspersion! Silence would, no doubt, reign supreme.

Here in Bangladesh, some people do trade on the religions too, meaning in the banner of Islam do some bad things which is not supposed to be religiously related. We need to study better with authentic books. Thanks for nice sharing.

Perhaps you can tell God a thing or two - and read Him His horoscope. And then read your horoscope in the Book of Revelation.
Yes, there are preachers who have gone awry, but please don't judge them all alike.

There will always be good and evil in the world, and there will be both good preachers as well as bad ones. There are truly some honest and wise preachers out there, that neither care about money nor power. I appreciate freedom of speech.

this is what counts:

To honour your self and others
And see the Light in all
Then that day angels they will gather
And set you on the throne

None has seen the Creator. I go by logic. My simple principle - give more good than receive by deeds and words - plain good karma. Our conscience, the spark within, is the master that guides us to the right path. There are many hypocrites everywhere and they are as ignorant as we are. But there are few who know more who, and as you say, show us the light without being seen! Thanks dear cnw, for your courage to speak out on ills in our society. Namaste - siva.

The thing about religion is that everyone has their own opinion, it is the cause of many wars. While many preach tolerance, few truly are.

If greed is a sin, why do so many ask for money?
