Does God need our worship?
It seems you put questions whose answer you think you know, but still something fascinates you about God to put the questions despite your own convictions and judgements. You are right in exposing many false beliefs and contradictory convictions, which are not healthy in general. You are absolutely right by the implicit statement in your question that God has no needs and has nothing to gain. By worship we create usually a comfortable distance to the object of our worship. It would be indeed much better for us to identify with our origin instead of worshiping Him/Her. Because then we would understand existence from within and become conscious of our oneness with all life and all creation, of our own infinity and indestructible core. We would realise that He/She is residing within us since the beginning. But in response to our effort to join our origin He/She would certainly reveal himself/herself. After all, the Enlightened ones teach us that He/She is Love in essence. This Love is upbearing all and gives always full freedom, because Love and Freedom are two sides of the same coin. In this sense it is up to us to ask for the relevation of this essence within us. It is indeed time to leave behind us religion with its cult and ritual and dive directly into the spirit himself. The problems we are faced today as humanity cannot be solved by political, economic, military or any other outer measures. The solution can be found only by a spiritual awakening, a turning to our inmost source and reality, by a transformation of our consciousness and nature. Yoga, Meditation, concentration and the practice of full awareness in all our daily activities are all tools to transform our consciousness and nature and by this the world and our reality.
