There is a great miscommunication. An an even greater ignorance. Many of today's people. Especially the younger generations. Can't tell or simply do not know that there is a difference between spirituality and religious beliefs. Many people are religious. In fact, recent studies have shown 84% of the world's population is religious. Wow! That means there's only 16% of the population that doesn't believe in anything or so say the numbers. But lets think a little more about this...
We don't know the true number or % of those who are spiritual yet non religious.
The sad truth is many don't understand the difference.
By sheer definition Religion is:
(According to Webster Dictionary)
"the belief in a god or in a group of gods
: an organized system of beliefs, ceremonies, and rules used to worship a god or a group of gods
: an interest, a belief, or an activity that is very important to a person or group"
Whereas Spiritual according to Webster is.:
" the quality or state of being concerned with religion or religious matters : the quality or state of being spiritual"
Wait wait wait? WHAT IN THE HELL?
The damn DICTIONARY doesn't even know the difference an tries to pull religious bull, or religion in general into it... Do you see the underlying problem here?
The fact is the root word spirit meaning
the nonphysical part of a person that is the seat of emotions and character; the soul.
"we seek a harmony between body and spirit"
Which the root word meaning breathe in latin was
A word created by Spanish Christians in their early cultural development to signify breath of life.
Religion has both limitations and boundaries. Rules and conduct. It doesn't feed one's love, positive energy, or ones soul.
It tells you who, what, when, why and how to be. That's not free will. An that's damn sure not love.
An it was invented to keep the sheep minded believing the lies of unnecessary fear of self proclaimed false God's!
Your inner self is connected to a high power. But it's not some mystical creature who whips you when your bad. That higher power is you and if you can manage to realize and let go of what you think you know...
God is a word. It means Guidance On Demand. An we're each a piece of that God. An we are our own God. We may have been created by a energy of creativity. But if we're creations made by our creators creations then. We're creators creating and we're self governing. Why in the hell would you give control to someone else? There's a whole group of other beings that are out there somewhere that are only alive because they feed of your energy an controlling you.
Well, it's time to say FUCK YOU! Take back control of YOURSELF!
Picture this... You're here right?
No, you're not..
Because I want you to just image if YOU were your higher self, watching YOU down here give over your life and control to a Nasty Fuckin inbreed cold blooded killing non-human life form whose only purpose is to consume you... To feed off your energies until you die then eat your dead body while you watch then erase all your memories so they can put you in a new body to do that shit again!
Wouldn't you be pissed? What if you go higher an your at the head position of your oversoul an you see all your incarnations an their other halfs enduring the same thing.
Wouldn't you want to do something?!?
So, you need to know the difference in religion which is control.
An your own inner self which call it spiritual or what you will... My point is, until one understands the difference. The cycle of being stuck in the dualistic karma and negative energy wheel will continue.
If your ready to take back control. You need to know what your up against!
Remember to stay true to yourself.
- Love yourself.
"Spirituality is a broad concept with room for many perspectives. In general, it includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and it typically involves a search for meaning in life. As such, it is a universal human experience—something that touches us all."Filed under: Spiritual, Confusion, Spiritual, religious
