God - Vivekananda Famous Quotes, Love Quotes, Inspirational

Why are people so afraid? The answer is that they have made themselves helpless and dependent on others. We are so lazy, we do not want to do anything ourselves. We want a Personal God, a Savior or a Prophet to do everything for us. - Vivekananda Famous Quotes, Love Quotes, Inspirational

Why are people so afraid, jitendra? It is a good thing that we are so afraid, otherwise we could not be manipulated and controlled by people that are trying to scare us and twist us into good christians, loyal citizens, honest and "god" fearing people. We are afraid of going to hell so we abide by all the rules, but wait a minute! If we don't abide by all the rules and if we cheat, steal, rape, molest and even kill, we have an out. Thank you so much God. All we have to do is to admit our sins, ask for God's forgiveness and now we have to really beleive in God and we are okay for the trip to heaven, Whew! Jay, what is wrong for wanting a savior to lead us in the right direction and rescue us from eternal damnation? What is wrong with a great prophet to give us all those inspirational quotes so we can think, "yea, that quote is what I have been trying to say." Jay, if it wasn't for being lazy, we wouldn't have television, ready pack salad, alfredo sauce. Jay, if we were all bolder, deep thinkers, outspoken individual people, leaders instead of followers, command of our own destiny, we did what wished we could do and got off the "easy chair," we would be that Prophet, that great leader, that person that we read about in People Magazine. So Jay, without all of us "lazy people," there would not be any great standouts for us to follow and for us to admire and to tear down. We love our heros, Jay, and we love to tear them down even more. We cheer for them when they are on top and we cheer at them when they are on the bottom. The great thing is that we can cheer for them right in front of the television sets eating pizza. Thank god for laziness.....macvegan
