More about spirituality

It is said by some that religion and spirituality are total opposites. Historically, we were spiritual long before we found religion.

Spirituality can be described as an attachment to one’s inner soul through life and how we choose to live it. Spirituality allows us to look at a wealth of opportunities so that we can live life in its most simplest form. Religion is associated with the concerns of a life through faith, culture and society.

When you can accept yourself physically, emotionally and spiritually, you know you’re on the spiritual path. The spiritual path allows us to accept the things we cannot change, deal with the things we can and give of ourselves, without needing anything in return.

Spirituality isn’t something that just happens, it’s a journey of different experiences, culminating in emotional tranquility and peace that comes from within, allowing us to choose how we see the world and other people. It sets us apart from others, through our attitude and how we conduct ourselves.

Spirituality helps us understand ourselves, our lives and others, whilst we follow its path and that puts us in tune with ourselves and our surroundings.

  1. I believe as you, on the difference of spirituality and religion. I read my bible nightly and pray 3-4 times a day about different things. mainly for others and that God’s will will be done. It calms me and gives me peace.

    I’ve believed like this since I was a child and I think things happen for a reason and that reason is God’s will. I thank God for leading me to you, to help me with the things I deal with; and because I needed a friend, someone I could talk to openly and not be judged.

    You’ve helped me in so many ways. You’re a blessing and an angel.

  2. Good journal today my friend. I had a day from you know where… I wish I could find you online but I can’t right now.
