Spirituality includes our search for meaning, for purpose. It encompasses our connection to a larger consciousness, maybe the Universe.
People find the essence of such an experience of transcendence, joy, of being alive in diverse things. Some find it in meditation. I know a great classical dancer. She finds a larger wholeness in her dance. Some find it in their achievement, in their work; even in bringing up children.
Religion tends to be much more rigid. It provides rituals, the concept of right or wrong, of reward and punishment. It has its value as it organises a society, tries to bring order.
Spirituality is more forgiving. It attempts to answer questions like
How am I connected to the world around me?
How may live a more fulfilling life?
What meaning do I find in my suffering?
Every person, regardless of beliefs, religion, colour or any other differentiation can find peace in the quest for spirituality. It is a gentle, accepting consciousness.
It helps you to be who you are.
To be free.
I would be happy with your opinions if you’d want to write.
Have a happy life.
