IS SPIRITUALITY DIFFERENT
FROM RELIGION?

 

SPIRITUALITY SAYS THAT GOD IS WITHIN EACH OF US
AND WE DON’T NEED ANYONE ELSE TO MAKE
THAT DIVINE CONNECTION FOR US

RELIGION SAYS THAT WE ARE SEPARATED FROM GOD
AND THAT WE NEED “THEM” TO MAKE THE
DIVINE CONNECTION FOR US

 

SPIRITUALITY SAYS THAT WE ARE FREE TO MAKE CHOICES
ON OUR OWN AND THAT WE MUST TAKE PERSONAL
RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR ACTIONS

RELIGION SAYS WE MUST MAKE THEIR
CHOICES AND ACT THEIR WAY

 

THE THEME OF SPIRITUALITY IS
UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

THE THEME OF RELIGION IS FEAR AND GUILT

 

SPIRITUALITY DOES NOT REQUIRE US
TO MAKE DONATIONS

RELIGION HAS BECOME BIG BUSINESS

 

SPIRITUALITY SAYS THERE IS NO HELL, NO
JUDGMENT, NO ANGRY GOD... THAT WE
ARE LOVED UNCONDITIONALLY

RELIGION SAYS THERE IS A HELL, GOD GETS ANGRY
AND JUDGES US... THEREFORE, WE ARE NOT
LOVED UNCONDITIONALLY

 

SPIRITUALITY SAYS WE ARE FREE TO
CHOOSE OUR OWN PATH TO GOD

RELIGION COMMANDS US TO DO IT THEIR WAY

 

SPIRITUALITY SAYS WE GO TO GOD
TO LIGHTEN OUR BURDEN

RELIGION HAS TAUGHT US TO FEAR THEIR GOD

 

SPIRITUALITY SAYS WE SHOULD NOT BE ASHAMED
OF OUR SEXUALITY... THAT IT SHOULD BE A
SACRED CELEBRATION OF LOVE

RELIGION HAS TAUGHT US TO FEEL ASHAMED,
GUILTY AND DIRTY ABOUT OUR SEXUALITY

 

SPIRITUALITY TEACHES US TO
HONOR AND RESPECT MOTHER EARTH

RELIGION HAS TOLD US TO "BE THOU FRUITFUL,
MULTIPLY AND SUBDUE THE EARTH"

I REPEAT... "SUBDUE THE EARTH"

I SUSPECT JESUS AND BUDDHA WOULD
HAVE SAID SOMETHING LIKE...

"ACT RESPONSIBLY,
HONOR EARTH MOTHER
AND ALWAYS GIVE HER YOUR LOVE"

 

SPIRITUALITY ASKS THAT WE HAVE CHILDREN IN A
RESPONSIBLE WAY THAT IS CONSISTENT
WITH MOTHER EARTH'S
RESOURCES

RELIGION SAYS THAT BIRTH CONTROL IS UNNATURAL,
A SIN, AND THAT WE CAN GO TO HELL FOR
PRACTICING IT. ARE THEY AFRAID
OF LOSING DUES-PAYING
MEMBERS?   

 

SPIRITUALITY REMINDS US THAT WE
ARE ONE WITH GOD AND ONE
WITH EACH OTHER

RELIGION TEACHES DISUNITY AND SEPARATION,
WHICH IS THE OPPOSITE OF GOD

 

SPIRITUALITY TELLS US THAT GOD IS WITHIN

RELIGION SAYS HE IS IN HEAVEN AND THAT
"THEY" ARE THE ONLY INTERMEDIARIES FOR US

 

SPIRITUALITY SAYS WE ARE BORN
IN INNOCENCE AND PURITY

RELIGION SAYS WE ARE BORN WITH SIN

 

SPIRITUALITY TEACHES THAT WE ARE ON A LONG
SPIRITUAL ADVENTURE AND JOURNEY,
WHICH WILL ULTIMATELY END BY
REUNITING WITH OUR SOURCE

RELIGION SAYS WE'VE GOT ONE LIFE TO GET IT
ALL RIGHT AND THERE IS NOTHING BUT
HEAVEN OR HELL AFTER THAT

 

SPIRITUALITY SAYS WE ARE FREE TO EXPRESS

RELIGION GAVE US THE DREADED INQUISITION

 

SPIRITUALITY TEACHES
UNCONDITIONAL LOVE FOR ALL

RELIGION GAVE US THE CRUSADES IN WHICH
MILLIONS WERE KILLED AND PERSECUTED
IN THE NAME OF GOD

 

SPIRITUALITY TEACHES THAT WE SHOULD LOVE
ONE ANOTHER UNCONDITIONALLY AND
ALWAYS HONOR THE RIGHTS 
AND CHOICES OF OTHERS

RELIGION TREATED NATIVE AMERICANS, THE MAYANS
AND OTHER INDIGENOUS CULTURES AS SAVAGE
PRIMITIVES WHO MUST BE SAVED

 

SPIRITUALITY TEACHES PEACE AND HARMONY

RELIGION HAS CAUSED MORE WARS
AND MORE KILLING THAN
ANY OTHER REASON

 

SPIRITUALITY SAYS RESPECT
ALL LIVING THINGS

I NEVER ONCE HEARD ANY RELIGION ASK THAT WE STOP
SLAUGHTERING MILLIONS OF TREES EVERY
YEAR FOR CHRIST'S BIRTHDAY

 

SPIRITUALITY TEACHES US TO HAVE
FAITH IN OURSELVES

RELIGION TEACHES US TO HAVE FAITH IN THEM

 

SPIRITUALITY SAYS WE HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS...
THAT WE CAN FIND THEM BY GOING WITHIN

RELIGION TEACHES US THAT IT HAS ALL THE
ANSWERS AND ONLY ITS ANSWERS
ARE THE RIGHT ONES

 

SPIRITUALITY TEACHES US TO SEARCH FOR THE
UNIVERSAL TRUTHS AND OUR HEARTS WILL
TELL US WHEN WE HAVE FOUND THEM

RELIGION TEACHES WE HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO
ACCEPT THEIR VERSION OF THE TRUTH


----------

 

WHICH ONE FEELS BETTER TO YOU?

SPIRITUALITY OR RELIGION?

GO TO YOUR HEART FOR THE ANSWER

IT WILL NEVER LIE TO YOU

THE REAL GOD MADE IT THAT WAY
