The Difference Between Religion and Spirituality

Art Prints

I think this pretty much says it all.

Many will dispute this, but the world is a better place because of religion. It gives most people something of value to hang onto, and a leader to look up to. However, in the end, we all must develop our own story, our own spirituality. We each perceive God in a different manner. It is up to each and every one of us to find God or a Supreme Being or Intelligence in our own time and our own way.

Only then can we become the spiritual beings we were meant to be.

A journey of spiritual discovery

A Bashful Country Boy goes on Walkabout.
A Walkabout refers to a rite of passage during which male Australian Aborigines would undergo a journey during adolescence and live in the outback for a period as long as six months.
In this practice they would trace the paths, or song paths, that their ancestors took, and imitate, in a fashion, their heroic deeds.
Merriam-Webster, however, identifies the noun as a 1908 coinage referring to “a short period of wandering bush life engaged in by an Australian Aborigine as an occasional interruption of regular work”, with the only mention of “spiritual journey” coming in a usage example from a latter-day travel writer.
To white employers, this urge to depart without notice(and reappear just as suddenly) was seen as something inherent in the Aboriginal nature, but the reasons may be more mundane: workers who wanted or needed to attend a ceremony or visit relatives did not accept employers’ control over such matters (especially since permission was generally hard to get).
