Random Musings: Spiritual Vs. Religious

Standard

Defining “Spiritual but Not Religious” for those who feel that a description is necessary 🙂 (While I don’t often feel compelled to explain myself for simply just being..I have found that it does sometimes bring a little peace to those that are uncomfortable with “MY” life choices…lol)

Spirituality is one’s capacity to be guided. It is not about how much we mediate. Or how often we go to church. Or how many yoga poses or Sanskrit words we know. Or how much time we spend praying. Or how many Om pieces of jewelry we have. Spirituality is really about how much we get out of our own way and allow ourselves to be guided by God.

That means . . .

Letting go of expectations.

Releasing attachments to the way we think things should be.

Quieting the voice of our ego so we can hear the voice of inner wisdom.

Making changes that maybe scary and facing uncertainty with faith.

Being of service to others that Spirit places in our lives in often unexpected ways.

Spirituality is a commitment to walking the spiritual path from the head to the heart. It’s a choice to free yourself from letting your ego take the lead in your life so you can surrender your ego’s attachments and instead, let your soul take the wheel.

It’s the decision to choose love over fear—to withhold judgment of yourself or others, to stop labeling everything as “right” or “wrong,” to transition from a black and white “dualistic” world to a non-dual perspective that is comfortable with paradox.

It’s the willingness to make your life an offering to the Divine in whatever form you resonate with a Higher Power, whether it’s God, Jesus, Allah, Buddah, the Wind, Music, Butterflies, Art, Chocolate, or some other deity or just the Divine within yourself.

It’s your commitment to learning to receive, interpret, and discern spiritual guidance, mixed with the courage to actually act upon this guidance. ~ Shared with Love
