Religious people want others to think for them. Spiritual people want to think for themselves.<br />
Spiritual people have a better chance of finding that which they are searching for because their minds are open. I love being around spiritual people. They are so non-judgmental. I avoid religious people at all costs. They are so ignorant, narrow-minded, and cruel.
the latter<br />
organized religion leaves me unsettled.<br />
too much of the following:<br />
different spins on the bible<br />
ungodly acts committed in the name of God.<br />
I have my own relationship with my creator..of the i have no doubt.
spirtual but not religious, why because religion is a bunch of crab and im sorry to all those out there that have a religion but this is my own opinion and it has no effect on what i think of others. as long as you dont try and change my belief i can be friends with anyone
I'm the second. Most of the religions I know of preach too much and are too judgmental. My God doesn't discriminate among people and doesn't have so many rules. Also, I know so many religious people who are complete dickheads and no way lead a Christian life.
Zen Dudeist.......we simply abide.
I am definitely not religious as I know something of the history of all of the different "handbooks" involved and know they have been mistranslated and selectively edited over the years. (Sometimes for political reasons - other times just from sheer incompetence.)<br />
I do consider myself to be spiritual. I have read most of the big books of philosophy and religion and find pieces that work in my own life. I do yoga and even something approaching meditation now and again.
I'm spiritual not religions. I go to church for my own benefit not because of the religion but because of the bible readings and the interpretation of them. I believe in MY God who may not be the same as yours, but is a guiding force for me in what I do daily. I try and grow through my understanding of me, my place in life and it is through my spiritual awareness of me.
IDK. I don't like the thought of a conformed religion, but something like what some Africans and Native Americans follow; Like more than one higher being, I could flow with.
Really? Damn you stereotypes!!!
Religious but not spiritual (yet). I have to follow my religious texts throroughly in order to become spiritual. The religious text does state "practice what you read/ preach" otherwise one cannot reach God just by wearing the religious garb.
oh my gawd! you left out the most important choice of all; i am rational, hence neither of your two limited choices...
I'm a little of both. I'm very into nature. I feel plants have feelings and I most always assist in re-propagating their seeds. I'm always taking a cutting of something or another to replenish my garden. I talk to them too. As well as when I pray, I look all around and often seek a tall tree to focus on. Nature is God's greatest creation. We all need to help save it.
