Spirituality vs Religion Part 1

Whilst not to be confused with Spirituality, Religion has been, and is today, a singular point of contention with the human race of this earthly society. Why would this be so? In my opinion, and my opinion only, it is the same old synopsis - money and power, or, power and money!

Although I do not refer to a specific religion, I can purport that many may take one part of the most famous book in history, and emphasise this to be 'the truth'. Others may change or delete parts, to then become their 'truth'. All this, to gain a following, for there is safety in numbers. And, the more who believe in a religious 'truth', the more who will join and pay their 'tithe', the more powerful that religious structure becomes. But doesn't Jesus tell us that the rich will be the least most likely to enjoy the fruits of Heaven? Something to ponder over ...

But what or where is Heaven, and how does one get there?

Spirituality, on the other hand, is a form of identifying within the Self, those Heavenly qualities that will allow an individual to attain a state of perfect equilibrium or 'Nirvana'. Spirituality is not a numbers game, and an individual is not dependant upon money or power or a famous book where parts have been singled out, changed or deleted, to reach 'Nirvana'. A Spiritual person is one who is seeking 'the truth' within themselves, and although this truth is universal, it will vary and become more complete, as a deeper understanding is gained by an individual.

I always felt alone and try as I might, could never seem to find a relationship where I could give my love completely and not get hurt, until I had my children. My aunty once told me that I brought my kids up right because they love and that was the highest compliment anyone could say to me. Still floundering from relationship to relationship in search of 'true love', it wasn't until quite recently that I finally stumbled upon it - love for myself - in all its entirety ... more
