Religion To me religion and spirituality are 2 different concepts.My religion is Hinduism but I hardly follow the rituals in it.Yet I pray and I think I can say I am spiritual.Here is a nice article I read.
Now the time has come when the difference between spirituality and Religion needs to be clearly defined. Religion is religiosity that is the outcome of human minds, is a path, which can be altered and changed, whereas spirituality is the truth of true dharm that a true human has been made to experience based on Nature’s Laws, by Nature herself. In Kaliyug, the excess of religious gurus and techniques have muddled up everything. But this situation is also a gift of Nature so that the three gunas – rajas, tamas and sattva in everyone may play to the brim, only then human will become gunatit, go beyondgunas, know his truth and proceed towards satyug. Spirituality is the knowledge of the science of themind, body and soul.
What is human’s connection with the whole creation and Nature, what is his role in it and how to become deserving to play it. This is that Ved which is endless, eternal - sanatan.
A truly spiritual person has no image; he lives in the moment, neither in the past or the present. At every moment what he thinks, he speaks, he does. His talk is not a discourse but a statement, like a Sufi’s speech. His entire action is regulated by the supreme consciousness which has the supreme force of Nature. His actions are based according to the time requirement, wisdom that which can be adopted and all his acts are offering to the Universe’s absolute mechanism. His duty-karm, dharm is to establish truth for the welfare of humanity. Very few rare chosen ones can understand him while alive.
After he leaves his body, instead of living according to what he said people start worshipping him. But the mere presence, sansarg of a truly spiritual human is capable of cutting darkness in the form of ignorance.
Everyone according to their intellect, buddhi define his words, after his demise. Whereas there is a race to worship and get blessings from living religious gurus to manage their lives. This is laziness, excuses, for not working on oneself and to save oneself from doing the penance to know thy true-self.
Human, disturbed due to his own karms, confused, entangled in mental duality, tries to find answers in religion and fundamentalist hypocritical rituals, whereas true answers can be attained by union with the divine through dhyan yog, through true spirituality.
O human, stop it
These disillusioning cobwebs of words
Clash of egos
Whatever you do, do it with beauty, with love
With humility, with bliss.
Actions done with anand will only spread bliss. Sourness will spread sourness. Even after knowing your truth, if you keep postponing working on yourself, then good fortune bestowed by the supreme godhood will also be postponed. You will lose the golden opportunity to experience the joy of being a real human being.
Now imperfections have to go whether it is in religion, in individuals, society or country. Those who understand this will swim through.
O human, why cannot you understand this small thing that in actuality ignites divinity.
This the truth.
