For me, I felt organized religion to be too formal and impersonal. I rarely felt a connection. It has always been when Im alone or having philosophical, ideological conversations with friends that I felt more spirituality. I dont get nearly as many of those conversations anymore but I do feel more intune when I pray, meditate, and read my cards. Which reminds me... I need to do that. I havent touched them in quite a while.
I always felt spiritual. I never really lost it but I never truly understood it either.I'm a part of the Divine and the Divine is a part of me.
My biggest obstacle was letting go of the guilt and feeling I was going to hell. That took a couple of years but I was reading and internally talking to the Divine establishing a new connection. It brought me such peace and joy that the pangs of guilt and fear that hit me weren't as strong. I realized once I stepped out of my prettily decorated box there was a huge world that I'd never seen before...My new journey started then.
I struggled for a long time to feel connected to God...trying different Christian religions, but finding my spirituality and that connection came when I finally realized "God" wasn't in any of the "religions" that I had been to looking/searching...Spirituality is everywhere around me, in everyone around me, I am a spiritual being...not the doctrines of organized religion...I notice life on a deeper level, am more thankful for little and big things on a daily basis, and generally am in awe of the connection of everything. Realizing these things, acknowledging them, being the person I am...all of these are what keep me spiritual. Having friends like the ones here and on the PL board helps when I have a question or just feel like I want to talk to someone who understands and doesn't judge.
