This book describes one man’s soul-searching, Inner Journey for the Truth about Life, God, Happiness, and Religion.
After more than six decades of fervent seeking, the author finally realized this great truth: “All religions are Man-Made, and not God-Ordained! And Since Man is not perfect, ALL religions are Flawed.”
Therefore, religion is NOT the best way to God or to Life. The best way to a happy, fulfilled life is found by looking within yourself and not inside ancient books.
Dear reader, has Religion ever really helped you discover the best way to Living a Happy, Fulfilled Life? If not, you may finally get your answer in this book, “Back to GOD, Away from Religion”!
Through his Joycentrix System of philosophical, religious, and psychological explorations, Menon lays out all the ways in which Religion manipulates us, to become victims to fear and disempowerment.
He also shows you how to climb over life’s challenges. Using his ground-breaking strategies, you’ll rise above restrictive perspectives, reaffirm your spiritual beliefs, and rediscover your highest self.
Back to GOD, Away from Religion gives a down-to-earth analysis of the common Fallacies and Delusions about the world that prevent people from living a Life of Joy and Peace.
What does the phrase ‘Back to God’ mean?
According to the author, this refers to using our god-given Powers of Mind and Free-Will, to live a happy life on earth, (and perhaps even in the afterlife)!
The author claims that going away from religion, can really bring us back to the way GOD meant for us to live! He shows how one can live a happier, more fulfilling life, not by observing religious rituals and dogma, but instead by shunning religion completely!
This may seem to be a shocking statement, but the author gives innumerable examples of how this can be done successfully.
For example, all religions were created at a time when people were completely ignorant about the world – especially about the unchanging physical laws by which the world is run.
Instead, when they were faced with natural phenomena such as floods, drought, volcanic eruptions, etc., they thought that they were being punished by vindictive gods who had to be appeased with prayers, offerings, rituals, and sacrifices.
They also had no clue that GOD had gifted us our Mind, in order to help Solve our Daily Problems of living in this complex world!
Also, they did not know that GOD had already given each one of us a wonderful Body, a magical Mind, and an indomitable Spirit, to enable us to co-create, and live joyously in this world.
The ideas in this book may seem contrary to the norm, and even controversial, but they are explained in a simple, rational manner that makes it seem like common sense.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have had a questioning mind right from early childhood and kept asking my parents, then my teachers all kinds of questions about life, the afterlife, God, happiness, and so on.
Much to my disappointment, no one seemed to know the answers and I turned to books, seminars, and finally deep introspection to satisfy my quest for the truth!
Sharing what I have discovered over the decades, is what inspires me to write this book.
Excerpted from the PREFACE:
It is my sincere belief that religion is NOT necessary for us humans to live a good, fulfilled, joyful life. In fact, I would go so far as to say that religion creates more problems than it tries to solve!
This belief is not something I arrived at suddenly, but over a period of several decades, right from my childhood to now, when I am in my sunset years.
Over the decades I have found that getting away from organized religions, and back to God has helped me live a more meaningful, and happy life without any fear of the afterlife.
Do you still believe that religions are necessary for humans to live a good life? Or do you often feel that religions create more problems than solve them? Do you sometimes think that there is too much superstition, negativity, contradictions, and downright lies in religions?
If you have toyed with such thoughts, but balked at the idea of a world without religion, then you will be glad to know, that there is a more positive, joyful, and viable alternative to organized religion!
This alternative is based (not on ancient texts written by men long gone), but directly linked to God’s plan for each one of us. I call this ‘The Joycentrix Philosophy’ which is based on being able to create a joyful life here on earth (and maybe in the hereafter as well).
This philosophy is an alternative to traditional religions, that I stumbled upon, in my search for the truth about life and living.
First of all, let me say that while I do not believe in religion, I do believe in God. A lot of people seem to think that if someone does not believe in religion, then he/she does not believe in God and hence must be an atheist. Nothing could be further from the truth.
People call this source by many names such as the Source, the Supreme One, the Infinite, the Omnipotent, the Universe, Nature, and so on. I like to simply call this Supreme Force ‘GOD’, to differentiate it from the ‘God’ or ‘Gods’ of mythology and religion.
Thus, I believe in a GOD who made man, and NOT in the many Gods made by man (as elaborately and imaginatively described in their theology and religious mythology).
As I see it, the primal Source, existed long before the world existed; long before humans existed; long before Organized Religions existed; long before humans could even communicate with each other; and long before languages were created.
Therefore, I sense that GOD speaks to each one of us, not in any particular ‘sacred’ language, but communicates to our Individual Mind via the Universal Mind. (For a full discussion of Universal Mind and Individual Mind refer to PART 3 of this book.)
The reason why I do not put much trust in religions is that all religions were created by men, at the height of their ignorance of the world, especially of the unchanging physical laws by which the world is run.
