The debate over politics and religion continues unabated. Spirituality should be the guiding force behind any politics. One should follow ones’ inner voice, be guided by one’s action as these are directions given by God himself.
I have purposely chosen to use the word individual here because it looks very similar to the word independent. An individual is a person who is independent when by himself or with others. He is not influenced by others either in his actions or thoughts. Nobody can force him to do anything against his own will.
I do not think it matters at the end of the day who you are or what you did. What matters is that you are you. That you are comfortable with yourself. So what is the logic of staring with ‘desh’ desh ki janta? The country’s population after all comprises individuals like you and me. We are constantly adjusting, rejecting or accepting individuals.
But what is the underlying factor for doing so? Are there any guidelines for this.?
Many of you might have heard the phrase ‘nobody is perfect’. I have to but I have my own views about it.
I can accept that we may not be perfect by ourselves but we can be nothing but so when we align with Him, the Almighty. Be holy as the one above is Holy.
Doubts arise. Many asks questions like ‘Where is he? We cannot see Him.
My friend you are right, you cannot see him for he is inside each one of us. He may be invisible to the naked eye but he walks with you, stands by you and above all for you
Without God nothing is possible. Then how politics could be possible? Individuals only rule for Him. In reality, it is God who rules. Has it not been said, “If He is not guarding the city then soldiers are of no use’.
Many are of the view that religion should be separated from politics. Yes I accept that you should not use it wrongly. Spirituality should be the guiding force behind any politics. But it should not be like US which launched a ‘crusade’ against Iraq. All they did was to loot and ruin a nation. The innocent blood of the Iraqis cries for the doom of US. In this case America misused the term of holiness. They said they fought for Christ but in reality they championed the cause of Satan.
I pray God comes to the aid of not just Iraqis but everyone on this planet who is struggling to overcome these evil forces.
