'Where is God in all this?' - the problem for religions
The Guardian (Monday January 3, 2005)

The destruction of the Portuguese capital Lisbon in an earthquake in
1755, which killed 60,000 people, was the event which helped to provoke the Enlightenment and first caused philosophers to ask more
sophisticated questions about God's role than divine vindictiveness
towards wicked people.

Iqbal Sacranie, the secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, told the BBC Sunday programme: "This is the will of God almighty. It is this aspect that is beyond us. Allah knows best. None of us is going to live for an indefinite period. Death always takes place but what form it takes is always beyond us. People of faith need to have a very firm belief in God almighty. It is for God's will. It is for the betterment of mankind at large."

But Fergus Stokes, a former priest turned humanist, said that Christians and other believers were trying to have it both ways: "Either God has a hand in the fishbowl, in which case you can pray to him, or he doesn't."

"There is some kind of inbuilt desire to hang on to supernatural forces. More and more, religion is not working for people and supernatural explanations rarely help."

Yes, it is true more and more, religion is not working for people. It never worked for me till i came to know Shri Mataji. There has been no guru or will there ever be one to rival Shri Mataji, who towers above all. The world today would have known Shri Mataji far more better and understood Sahaja Yoga in depth had SYs been frank and fearless about the Divine Message. (i have provided evidence of ex-SYs who have learnt little else than the subtle system, catches and cures despite spending months/years in local collectives.)

Had SYs focused their attention and put their collective energies
to announce the commencement of the Last Judgment and Resurrection for the last three decades, hundreds of thousands would have joined Sahaja Yoga today.

But they did not and we are all paying a terrible toll today which, in my opinion, is as tragic as the Asian tsunami itself (30 years of silence and fear of public reaction is indeed tragic). For those seekers today looking for answers from this unprecedented catastrophe the subtle system makes as much sense as the terrible disaster itself. If the tragedy is indeed God's will for the betterment of mankind at large, what will humans relate to - the subtle system or the Divine Message addressed to all humanity?

But for three decades Shri Mataji has explained in detail all that is needed to understand this Divine Message. She has fulfilled Her duties and is now more than 80-years-old. Time and again in public She has proclaimed that the Last Judgment and Resurrection (Al-Qiyamah) has begun. How come SY websites have made no mention of that Great Event, the very reason She was sent to Earth? How can they ever give answers to Muslims and Christians, and explain God's will that is preordained for the betterment of mankind through the subtle system mindset? This indeed is a terrible tragedy on its own.

"The question remains as to whether some kind of spiritual evolution
is in progress, whether large amounts of people gradually taking up
meditation and other forms of inner practice will create a critical
mass of global enlightenment, or whether we will continue in what
could be called the Brazilian rain forest mode. In the past, this
theory goes, a small number of mystics, ascetics, monastics,
wandering mendicants, and other followers of the Perennial
Philosophy were capable of providing the spiritual oxygen that
helped the rest of the world to breathe and that sustained the
mainstream practice of religion with all its surface anomalies.
These days it seems increasingly questionable whether this approach
will be sufficient to redeem a crippled planet; on the whole, the
evolutionary theory makes more sense. But how long will it take? The
Bolivian visionary Oscar Ichazo said some years ago, "In the past
eras the mystical trip was an individual matter, or at least a
matter of small groups, but no longer. This is what is new in human
history. Everybody can now achieve a higher degree of consciousness.
.... The vision of humanity as one enormous family, one objective
tribe, may once have been utopian. Now it is a practical
necessity." "
