Spirituality vs Religion
Are you religious or are you spiritual? Can you have religion within spirituality or spirituality within religion?
For me...I class myself as a non-religious spiritual being. Whilst religion fascinates me and I love learning about and speaking to people of all different types of religion, I choose not to classify myself within one of these religious sects. Rather, I have a belief that there is something greater than us, a sort of creator and that we are spiritual beings having a physical earthly experience.
I'm not sharing my beliefs to offend, judge or cause any conflict, rather to share a little more of myself and what makes me me! Spirituality has been a part of my life for a number of years now and it continues to provide a platform from which I feel I can grow and evolve. It gives meaning to my life and feels right for me.
Whilst I'm passionate about my beliefs, I'm not here to preach. We all have the right to choose what we believe in. You can't compare anyone's faith and so long as it is offering a deeper sense of meaning and fulfillment to that individuals life, then that can only be a good thing right?
What do you believe in? What don't you believe in? I believe there is no right or wrong, but that we all contain an inner knowing and deep desire to continue to work toward being the most loving beings we can be in order to restore harmony on earth. If this resonates with you I would love to know!
