Whenever I have something in mind, I take a paper and either write about it or draw a picture. If I was a painter, I’d paint, if I was a sculptor, I’d make an idol or a statue. It’s a way of giving my thoughts a shape and meaning.
It’s not necessary that expression is same for everyone. There are times when I don’t share anything but imagine something that I have in mind to exist without creating anything out of it. I visualize it in my mind. Just feel it be there, no need of a physical appearance. Just because I like it that way, it doesn’t mean everyone must be the same.
All of us have the right to express and interpret things our own way.
When you take religion, one says idol worship isn’t ideal. Another days idols are just interpretations, making sense of what they feel, giving their beliefs a meaning. Something to look at. Not one God looks the same. When you look at religion and worship with a creative view, there are different descriptions for every God out there, each with their own power and purpose. One rules heaven, one rules hell, one for peace another for war. In other Faiths, all of these are taken care of by one. Even the almighty takes form of a man to communicate with other men so that they can relate to him better.
There’s a lot it effort put in to describe heavenly entities and the stories that accompany them are satisfying and at times hard to believe. Either way, you notice the creativity. When every person has his/her own way to make sense of his beliefs and shape to his thoughts, why’s it hated? Why’s it unacceptable?
Religion is a form of expression.
Every religion has its own version of God.
Telling people their form of worship is wrong is a violation of their right to express. It’s an offense.
Live, let live.
