The Difference Between Religion and Spirituality

The Difference Between Religion and Spirituality

Spirituality is a path that aims at the resolution of the inner conflicts society instills within us. Where society would have us obey and follow in other people’s shadows rather than becoming the true masters of our own destiny, spirituality gives us the tools for finding strength and harmony in embracing and expressing our individuality — in becoming all that we are meant to be.

Religion would have us provided with ready wisdom and all the answers to the fundamental questions of being, but in doing that it only serves to create a great divide within us. The mind will accept dogma and beliefs and strive to live by them, but the deeper intuitive self — the non-rational part we might refer to as the subconscious — knows these beliefs to be in conflict with its own truth.

"Happiness is but a higher harmony of the being as a whole - where the thoughts, emotions, physical and mental health are all in satisfactory balance. Thoughts are not a cause of happiness but a manifestation of it - just like everything else in the body, physical or otherwise."
