Is atheism slowly becoming a religion now?
If you need a label then you are dependent. If you are dependent then why not depend on God or a genuine Guru.
The developed and much more organized West always has the propensity of labeling.
I remember when I first reached there from India I was shell shocked.
Dogs did not randomly bark, neither could I see babies crying on the streets. At the supermarket every apple had a sticker.
When I went to the railway station it was absolutely empty when there was no train.
I thought to myself My God what a controlled society.
India is totally different that way. It’s a spiritual land and I truly feel liberated and free here as do most of the Western tourist whom I have talked to.
Though initially they also feel the culture shock but gradually they feel inner peace and joy and keep comming back.
