Default Re: Can the Spirituality thread be re-named Non-physicality??

[QUOTE=milk and honey;88930]'Religion' treats the subject of 'spirit' so to me they're synonymous with each other.

Religion cannot be synonymous with spirit. Religion is meant to point in the direction of spirit, but often it does not. Often it is totally based on fear, cutting us off from spirit.

Yes, I agree with you, milk and honey. Religious issues and quotes belong in this section as well. But if the name of the thread is 'Our Spiritual Quest', it might serve to remind us, if we lapse into preaching, that the living spirit in each of us does not make us identical. Spirit permits us to be uniquely ourselves, and not necessarily to see everything alike. Except for love, which is beyond words.
