In reality, what you are is not that important as "are you really what you portray yourself to be?"
'Yes' is theism and 'No' is atheism. In life the number of things that you have firmly abstained from...shows how irreligious you are. The meaning of irreligiousness itself is the denial of God's creations.
Sin - virtue, respect - disrespect, good - bad, success - failure, are all divisions created by the brain. At the level of mind, they are nothing but useless notions.
Why are you hell bent on waiting and troubling the almighty for justice to be served on the judgment day? Why don't you take the initiative today itself to curb the unscrupulous activities going on around you?
The only principle to bring a task to fruition which you do not know how to do is, completely surrendering to the person who knows it, with full trust.
If we stop considering ourselves special on the level of physicalities, half our sorrows will disappear by themselves. From sickness to death, events to accidents; what happens to others, can always happen to us and our beloved ones too... Then what's the point in grieving about them for so long?
Considering only your belief system to be true, you have been supporting it firmly for ages. But why don't you understand that without taking constructive criticism in your stride, it is impossible to tread the right path as per the need of time. It is the law of human consciousness that the more one is open to his own criticism, the more refined he gets. Only because of their own fanaticism, the Muslim brothers all over the world are practically deprived of the immense compassion of "intelligent" people.
A religious person is...the one who accepts the responsibility for the success and failures of his life. The one who entrusts it to rituals, worship, astrology, family or friends...is irreligious.
If taking a bath in the holy Ganges can really wash off your 'sins', then why are poor criminals put behind bars? Giving them a dip in the Ganges, why aren't their 'sins' also washed off?
The unsuccessful person falls for the ritualistic hypocrisies of religion. Such hypocrisies give birth to false hopes, and false hopes lead to performing wrong deeds. Wrong karma induces more sorrows; and more the miseries, more the person falls for religious hypocrisies. Such a sorry state of human beings is solely owed to being trapped in this vicious circle.
