Spirituality VS Religion
Updated: Jun 14
I was confused recently when someone inquired what religion I practised. Being religious is adhering to a set of beliefs. I thought about it all day and couldn’t come up with a single religious theory that I believe in.
My only religious belief is that if it exists, it was made by God, and I believe in it. I believe in God because I see masculine and female dualism in everything in life. Cycles and things that work and act together are what I perceive. I believe that if life had not been created by a superior intellect, the world would be chaos. Mutated and unable to collaborate.
It doesn’t imply I’m not spiritual just because I’m not affiliated with a religion. I’m always looking within and don’t rely on other people’s answers, views, opinions, or solutions. I look for what is best for myself.
To me, what does spirituality entail? The senses use higher mental and spiritual abilities to deliver a more direct view of the universal knowledge base of illuminations, intuitions, and revelations as the mind advances away from the connections and confusion of everyday life (towards the stillness within). We approach a state of pure rational thinking where integrated knowledge and wisdom are abundant by delving further into this stillness of our awareness (away from our sentiments, emotions, judgments, and biases).

We discover that holding a dogma isolates us not just from one another, but also from God and ourselves. It restricts our freedom and enslaves us to dogma. Because of tunnel vision, we become stuck inside these boundaries. Because God’s truth is too great for us to comprehend (grasp) all at once and must be acquired line by line and precept by precept, we begin to die spiritually by blocking out other truths.
How could someone believe they know and possess all of God’s truth? In reality, religious ideology tells ourselves and others that we don’t have anything more to learn or accomplish. We then begin to label anyone who do not subscribe to our specific belief system as anti-God. When we can let go of our ego and separateness, we may find deeper truths. Silence within allows us to gain wisdom, clarity of thought, insight, and, finally, the complete truth we seek. When we sit in quiet, we become aware of how we are one with all of cosmic consciousness.
