990: The Difference Between Spirituality and Religion


Meditation offers us the opportunity to better know ourselves on a human level, and on a grander scale.  With a quiet mind we begin to direct our own lives, exploring what has meaning and what doesn't.  Part of that journey of self-exploration has us examining how we exist in the Universe, and our spiritual essence.  Religion itself is a topic not readily discussed in casual conversations; spirituality even less.  Many people think they are the same, but as you will find out today, that's not the case.

What you will learn in this episode:

  • The difference between religion and spirituality
  • What the focus of spirituality is
