The essence of love, which can only be unconditional.
Religion symbolizes less a return to, rather a remembering of who we really are:
one endless eternal beautiful creation of and by Consciousness.
God is the only way, the only light, the only tool and method, the true technology.
God is our spiritual father, our sensual mother, our best friend and true self.
God is waiting for all of us to return home and be forever with him.
Religion is doing away with rigid theologies, belief systems and ideologies conducive to divisions between people, hatred, envy, violence and killings. It is letting unconditional, non-possessive love reign supreme. It is not reacting to others' behavior toward us as a statement about our true value but accepting that behavior, without judgement and labels, as a reflection of their peculiar state of mind.
Religion is ceasing to identify with a false sense of self - the ego and the incessant drama it generates through thoughts and mind patterns - and looking inward to unlock the inner identity, consciousness, flowing in absolute oneness with the whole - with God.
Religion is being peacefully present, rejoicing without attachment at the beauty of things, however simple, and surrendering to what is. It is not depressing over a bygone past or obsessing anxiously over an elusive future. Religion is enabling the awareness of God's presence within ourselves to manifest itself harmoniously every single moment of our everyday life.
