I dont know my path…!!!

Question – i am new to the spiritual… i never meditated before and i do not know what my path is…can you help me ?

you think you are new
but you are not new
you may have come here for the first time

but you have been born before and before
you have lived life many timesand even if you are new then that is better
because you are innocent
we can trap you…we can catch you !
we are just joking around here…if you like good jokes…laughing…dancing
then you are in the right place
if you are searching heavy philosophy and analysis of the esoteric
we do not know anything
we do not have time for all these stupid thingswho has got time ?
i am sleeping…eating…dancing…sleeping
who has time for these esoteric questions and all that ?
we are lost…we are completely lost
we do not even bother finding the path
have you seen a drunk looking for the path ?
he does not know what is the path
we are all lost people !

the moment you fall in love
life is so beautiful
you stop looking for the path

the moment you are searching the path
life is missing
those who are living they do not look for the path
they are so involved in life
they do not ask where is the path

you do not know…you are lucky !
do not find any path
because there is no path
there is no past…there is no future

everything is here…be here…enjoy…it is here !
next moment…it is here
another moment…it is still here
wherever you will go…it will be always here

it is very profound
just hang loose…and you are ok
just be here and you will understand slowly
that there is no spiritual path…there is life to live
there is life to absorb and that becomes the path

you drown into it
and you will never find your way back

ok?

Jawaharlal Nehru was an atheist politician who served as the first Prime Minister of Independent India from 1947 to 1964. In his autobiography, which he wrote while in prison in 1936, Nehru said that he did not believe in a god of any kind. He said of religion:

‘The spectacle of what is called religion, or at any rate organized religion, in India and elsewhere, has filled us with horror, and I have frequently condemned it and wished to make a clean sweep of it.’

Nehru also said that:

‘I want nothing to do with any religion concerned with keeping the masses satisfied to live in hunger, filth, and ignorance. I want nothing to do with any order, religious or otherwise, which does not teach people that they are capable of becoming happier and more civilized, on this earth, capable of becoming true man, master of his fate and captain of his soul. To attain this I would put priests to work, also, and turn the temples into schools.’

Douglas Adams was an atheist British writer who wrote the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency and several episodes of Doctor Who. He described himself as a ‘radical atheist’ in order to distinguish himself from agnostics. In 1999, Adams explained that:

‘I really do not believe that there is a god – in fact I am convinced that there is not a god (a subtle difference). I see not a shred of evidence to suggest that there is one. It’s easier to say that I am a radical Atheist, just to signal that I really mean it, have thought about it a great deal, and that it’s an opinion I hold seriously.’

In his final book, The Salmon of Doubt, published in 2002, Adams addresses people who believe that God must exist because the world so fits our needs. He compares them to an intelligent puddle of water that fills a hole in the ground. The puddle is certain that the hole must have been designed specifically for it because it fits so well. The puddle exists under the sun until it has entirely evaporated.

What is Atheism?

Richard Watson states in his 1831 book, A Biblical and Theological Dictionary: “Atheist, in the strict and proper sense of the word, is one who does not believe in the existence of a god, or who owns no being superior to nature.”

Robert Flint, in his 1885 book Anti-Theistic Theories states: “Every man is an atheist who does not believe that there is a God.”

Strong Atheism
The strong atheist, also known as an explicit atheist or a positive atheist, denies the existence of God or any other deities. This person’s views are based solely on what can be found to be true using the scientific method. Since the existence of God cannot be proven using science, the strong atheist concludes that God doesn’t exist.

Weak Atheism
The second type of atheist is the weak atheist, also known as an implicit atheist or a negative atheist. This person does not deny the existence of God outright, but rather claims a religious relativism. That is, she would claim that anyone’s belief can be true for that person, but she doesn’t believe in God herself.

An Atheistic Worldview What are the implications for a religious atheist? Without God, he arrives at the necessary philosophies of moral relativism and naturalism. But does his view line up with objective reality? And is there any evidence for a God?

Who is an atheist or agnostic theists?

The Atheist

The Atheist

Atheist: Someone who does not believe in the existence of any deities/gods.
Agnostic: Someone who cannot prove or disprove the existence of any deities/gods.

Although atheism is described in a variety of ways that often depend on the views of the describer, an atheist is a person from whose life a belief in the supernatural (God) is absent. There is no denial of, no failure to recognize and no denouncing of the supernatural contained within the term atheist. At its most basic level atheism is the absence of belief in the supernatural.

Every single person in the universe is agnostic even if they don’t say it. Some people are agnostic theists, meaning they cannot prove or disprove the existence of any deities/gods but they believe that one or more do exist.  Some people just call themselves agnostic because they cannot prove or disprove the existence of any deities/gods & they don’t believe one way or the other. Theists, atheists & agnostics may or may not be religious. It is entirely dependent on the individual. Most religions are theistic, meaning they centralize around the existence of a god(s), however not all religions are.
