There is silent revolution creeping all over the world. More and more people are learning meditation and practising individually and in global meditation occasions. One lamp can light up many other lamps, one great soul can awaken countless other souls.
“Spiritual but Not Religious” category is increasing and deserves attention. No, they're not just atheists. A fifth of Americans check “none” on surveys of religious preference. Under age of 30 a full third check “none.” In the last five years, the unaffiliated have increased from 15% to 20% of all U.S. adults. It is clearly also the story of the ascent of “spirituality.” http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2014/01/spiritual-but-not-religious-a-rising-misunderstood-voting-bloc/283000/
About 1 in 4 believe in a non-traditional concept of the nature of God: 11% believe that God is "a state of higher consciousness that a person may reach”, 8% define God as "the total realization of personal, human potential, 3 % believe that each person is God. http://www.religioustolerance.org/newage.htm
BBC; http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20141219-will-religion-ever-disappear. The number of individuals claiming to be religious fell from 77% to 68% between 2005 and 2011, while atheist rose by 3% – bringing non-believers to 13%. Very few societies are more religious today than they were 40 or 50 years ago, but this might not count the spiritual people. In Scandinavia, most people don’t believe in God, but paranormal and superstitious beliefs tend to be higher; Norway passion; Ghost Hunting. People seem to have this conceptual space for religious thought, which – if it’s not filled by religion – bubbles up in surprising ways... And Ghost Tourism Booms.
Debate on religion. Will religion die out soon? 67% Say Yes so far; http://www.debate.org/opinions/will-religion-die-out-soon.
Religion could disappear by 2041 because people will have replaced God with possessions, claims leading Irish psychologist. A study into the beliefs of people living in 137 countries, found atheism increases in more developed places as people become increasingly materially rich. http://www.dailymail.co.uk...leading-psychologist.html#ixzz3szV83rOJ
In Australia reporting “no religion” increased 6.8 % between 2001 and 2011. About half of those are less than 30 years old. Estonian people only 14 % are religious and in Egypt almost 100 %.
Why would religions die off?
More and more starseeds and indigo children are born, their origin is from advanced planets or higher spiritual dimensions, so they don't have interest for religions. Today, parents give children the choice to believe in any religion or non. Multicultural families and societies may not emphasize just only one religion. Recently exposed crimes that religious leaders and authorities have done are turning people to leave their church. Many wars have been waged, because of religious reasons, which also turn people away from religions.
Education at present time in schools give more choices for wider beliefs. Internet information makes to think more rationally, religions may seem irrational. But I think it is mainly the inner yearning that brings people in touch of spirituality. The human race is thriving towards spirituality as a whole.
Sarkar believed that religions will die when science proves reincarnation. He also mentioned that if human fear is removed through logic and reason, the very basis for blind faith will be weakened.
More from Sarkar: Religion is based on dogma-centred philosophy. Once matter-centred philosophies (communism, capitalism) have been vanquished, the strength of religious dogma will be naturally weakened and finally eliminated. The dogma-centred, matter-centred and self-centred theories will be replaced by spirituality in the very near future.
Science students understand the reason for a lunar or solar eclipse. They know that the eclipse does not occur because the sun or moon has been devoured by the mythological demons Ráhu and Ketu. Yet some rush to take a holy bath in the Ganges during the eclipse. This is the result of blind faith. One of the greatest treasures of human beings is rationality, and anything that goes against this human characteristic is bound to be eventually destroyed.
Religion is always plural in number – never singular. The synthesis of religions means their annihilation. So religions are many, but Dharma (spiritual goal) is one. External paraphernalia are not required for the practice of Dharma: the only prerequisite is a unit mind. In spiritual sádhaná (practise) there is no place for the differences in nationality, race, language or religion.
Transformation in human psychology will come about through spiritual practices. The development of intuition will make human beings more spiritually inclined. One day the physical and psychic structure of human beings will become divine. They will then lose their fascination with the transitory world.
Human love will be transformed into universal love if there is enough secretion of the hormones from the solar plexus, that's why practise of asanas (yoga posters) is also important. Vegetarians produce more lymph because they get chlorophyll from grass and other green vegetation. It is more easy for them to do spiritual practises. Much research needs to be done on these subjects for the all-round welfare of living beings.
As a result of the sádhaná [spiritual practices] pituitary gland starts to function tremendously. After getting proper spiritual guidance, one's mind rises upwards from the pituitary gland to the pineal gland, and with one's mind concentrated on the controlling point of the pineal gland, one attains salvation within a short span of time. The pituitary gland is psycho-spiritual in nature, and the pineal gland is spiritual in nature.
All genuine spiritualists will have to share the wealth of their developed intellects with others to lighten the sorrows and sufferings of humanity. Love, freedom and equality are its foundation stones. We will all have to move together in unison – this will be the model for the future.
Through their guidance and leadership, human thinking will take a new turn and move along an entirely new path. The latent spiritual power in human beings will be awakened. The new people of a new generation will be armed with a bold new optimism and vision of the future, and march forward triumphantly. Spiritual renaissance is happening all over the world, people are engaged with research and involvement in spiritual activities.
Evolution is guided by the all compassing spirit in its effort to return to cosmic consciousness. In human being it's expression is the yarning to unite the individual soul into cosmic soul, to bridge the cap between the finite and the infinite.
Sarkar also stated that in the future one should be careful not to hurt the religious sentiments of others, but he recommended that Deities (statues) should be preserved in museums, and temples should be restored to maintain the cultural and historical heritage of religions.
Many people and groups are putting lots of effort to change the more or less destructive course on earth practically into benevolent society. Non can do it alone, but working side by side we can make it possible and we should unite moral people and those who have moral courage.
