                    Some thoughts on Religion and Spirituality

Religion supports our spirituality.  It is an outward expression of the inner reality of our relationship with God.  Spirituality is the inner reality of our relationship with God, with ourselves and others.  It is what goes on in our deepest Center/Heart.  Religion, at its best, supports and nourishes our spirituality.  Religion is our doctrines, creeds, an avenue of service and involves learning about God.  Spirituality is knowing God and ourselves intimately.  It is about paying attention to what is real inside of ourselves and responding to that Reality.  Spirituality is about relationship and knowledge gained through love. Spiritual deepening takes place inside when we come to know and love God (Christ-Spirit) more and more and in the process come to know and love ourselves more and more.  Spiritual growth is about becoming whole, healed, fully ourselves, our truest self.  Our true self is the image of God in whose image we are created and as we grow and deepen we are becoming the likeness of Christ in the world.

Gerald May writes:  "Spirituality refers to our deepest values and desires, the very core of our being.  A Holy longing, to know the meaning of our lives.  Spirituality is religion's root.  Spirit is the wind all around us, the Breath we breathe in and out.  Religion supports our spirituality."

Individuals who value spirituality takes the time to reflect on their daily activities and ultimately build lasting memories of their experiences. Because spiritual people are more conscious of small, daily activities, they experience positive emotions associated with the smaller pleasures in life. People who are spiritual and religious know who God is. They want to speak to Him and live following His words. There is nothing wrong with being spiritual and religious, if you are following the truth, you are on the right path.

Our supplications and prayers are the reflections of our inside feelings. Religion is something which we should respect from the bottom of the heart. I believe religion helps you to make a better person in life.
