The Mustard Seed Books

The Mustard Seed is quoted in most Religions and is about the judgement, so if you can't hear, this may help!
Dhammapada Quote:
Like water on the leaf of a lotus flower Or a mustard seed on the point of a needle, He does not cling. For he has reached the end of sorrow And has laid down his burden. He looks deeply into things And sees their nature. He discriminates And reaches the end of the way. He does not linger With those who have a home Nor with those who stray. Wanting nothing, He travels on alone. He hurts nothing. He never kills. He moves with love among the unloving, With peace and detachment Among the hungry and querulous. Like a mustard seed from the point of a needle Hatred has fallen from him, And lust, hypocrisy and pride. He offends no one. Yet he speaks the truth.

Upanishads Quote:
He who consists of the mind, whose body is subtle, whose form is light, whose thoughts are true, whose nature is like the akasa, whose creation in this universe, who cherishes all righteous desires, who contains all pleasant odours, who is endowed with all tastes, who embraces all this, who never speaks and who is without longing! He is my Self within the heart, smaller than a grain of rice, smaller than a grain of barley, smaller than a mustard seed, smaller than a grain of millet; He is my Self within the heart, greater than the earth, greater than the region, greater than heaven, greater than all these worlds.
Bible Quote:
He put out another parable to them, saying, The kingdom of Heaven is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field; which indeed is the least of all seeds, but when it is grown it is the greatest among herbs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in its branches. (Mat 13:31-32)
And the Lord said, if you had faith as a grain of mustard seed, you might say to this sycamore tree, be rooted up and be planted in the sea! And it would obey you.
Quran Quote:
21.47 . And we set a just balance for the Day of Resurrection so that no soul is wronged in aught. Though it be of the weight of a grain of mustard seed, We bring it. And We suffice for reckoners.

Very true, Never lose faith; as many don't see this to be one and so miss the path...

Why Not no religion and Just have Faith in good, why does God need to be in a box to exist?

Isn't that the meaning of a mustard seed, it will grow outside of a box to find the light? Yet where did the light come from to begin; As it will search for the light from a seed, not needing a blue print of where it must grow too.
