I Am Spiritual, Not Religious

For everyone who believes in a higher power, be it God, Great Spirit, or whatever you may call it, but doesn't necessarily blindly believe any of the "Holy Books" that every religion has. 3,795 People

    The Divine Feminine

    A poem, from the Gnostic gospels...one of the many portions of the Bible depicting the feminine as divine..with spirituality and sexuality described as inextricably linked.  It was also, not surprisingly, one of the many portions of the Bible denounced as "heresy"  by church...

    As a child of Tribal Peoples,

    I believe Nature is our teacher for spiritual ideas. I believe that life forms show us examples of how to live and how not to. Celestial and terrestrial events expand the mind, and spirituality is more than just morality or deity worship. It is the science of everything. In...

    I believe in God but don't want to belong to a

    religion. I like to take the road less traveled. The unique path.

    I did a seven day spiritual cleansing at the

    age of ten. Now I am doing it again this week. I am leaving for ten days spiritual meditation. No work email, no conference calls, basically no gadget will accompany me at all for from November 19 till November 30th. Hope my soul gets lighter and learn to fly again.

    Little problems in our life take away the

    beauty of life and all its blessing that go unnoticed by us because of our never ending need for something missing, kind of like an in finished puzzle piece. Something is always missing, we can never be satisfied because we don't have the things we hold most dear, the thing that...

    a church, a book, a confession, a priest, a list of moral law, a certain way to be, a prayer, a pew, a song, a cry for help, no. I believe in the mind. I believe in opinion and the power of it. I believe in deep breaths and what ever it is that makes you happy. I do not think...

    Death, it is a main factor in our lives.

    In my opinion, death is the center of many things in human life and society, like the principle of “carpe diem” (enjoy the present because tomorrow is uncertain). It also feeds the emotions, love (the need for someone to complete our meaning of existence), liberty (explore...

    I believe what I want

    and don't shove my beliefs down other people's throats. I wish no one would try to convince people to abandon their believes, just to follow their own.

    I think it doesn't matter what anyone believes

    in, whether they follow Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Satanism, Atheism, and so on. As long as you don't make people believe in something they do not. I'm not sure if they have another name for what I believe in, so I suppose I'm Spiritual.

    Serenity

    that with proof from the bible, god does not judge and does not need or want anyone to go to church, so I am urged by my spirit, to correct anyone who says they need church to find god, he is within everyone

    I believe religion is far too constricting.

    It offers answers to things, that I believe, need to be found out on one's own. I'd much rather pray when I'm surrounded by nature than in a stuffy church. I feel closest to Him when I can hear the breezes and rustles of the leaves... I feel most accepted by Him there. I'm not...

    Most do not have an understanding of free will.

    Free will literally means we each get to choose our outcome. We each make choices to grow and evolve us. We each are teachers to one another. My most painful teachers have imparted the greatest wisdom on me. Why? Because they taught me boundaries...when to say no, when to stand...
