What Comes After Religion

時至今日,越來越少人擁有信仰了。 很有可能在這一代人之後,將不存在能夠橫跨整個歐洲、大部分北美洲、澳洲及亞洲的宗教。 這個現象不見得是個問題。 但值得思考的是,為什麽最初人們會編造出宗教 以及我們行事上有哪些需要與渴求使得人們這麼做。 一方面,宗教的目的是要我們去相信某些事。 而當人們說他們沒有信仰,他們會傾向不去接觸任何關於宗教的一切。 且常指出那些因為宗教所引發的恐怖影響, 不管是過去造成的,還是現在仍持續發生的。 但就某種意義上,信仰在宗教中,屬於幾乎是最不重要且肯定是最無趣的一環。 最吸引人的其實是宗教所涉及的其他東西。 舉個例,宗教定期把人們聚集在一起, 而且令人驚奇的,告訴人們要互相友好。 宗教也創造出一種社群意識, 作爲東道主,確保祖母和孩子,大首領和小百姓 都學會去重視理解對方,而不是將之視為抽象難懂的實體。 宗教使用儀式來指示我們,並讓我們深刻牢記在心。 例如,四季不斷變化、什麼時候該緬懷我們的祖先。 月亮什麼時候最圓最漂亮 或者你可以藉由懺悔來而重新開始。 或者桌上有食物享用其實是件非常美妙的事。 宗教明白我們不僅僅只是理智的生物, 所以它謹慎地透過藝術和美來討我們喜歡。 在某些分類上,我們會認為對美的追求其實無足輕重且太膚淺,而真理和深度存在於另一個層次。 但是宗教把它們結合在一起了。 它建造了寺廟、大教堂、清真寺,透過美來傳達有深度的重要觀念。 利用藝術來提醒我們什麼是重要的 宗教的藝術品是具有說教意義的 目的是讓我們感受到 平靜 憐憫 敬畏 我們也許永遠不會擁有信仰 但需要與渴求使我們持續編造這些故事。 我們很寂寞 而且也很兇暴 我們渴望美好、智慧和目標。 我們希望不只為自己而活。 社會告訴我們將希望引導到兩個領域 追求浪漫愛情及成功事業。 同時它也用各種新聞、電影娛樂及生活消費品使我們分心。 如同你知道的,這些難以滿足我們, 即使時間都過了凌晨三點。 我們需要提醒讓自己變得更好, 需要地方讓我們回想起敬畏, 喚起我們的良知,少一點自私行事。 永恆的事物如同嬌貴花朵一樣需要照護 而儀式將我們聚在一起。 這並不是關於宗教或者世俗化的選擇,如同現今目前的狀況。 我們的挑戰是從宗教中學習 …
