The difference between religion and spirituality

Our world gives us reality where religion and spirituality co-exists closely. This two are very related that sometimes people think that they are the same. But there is a huge difference between these two. Religion asks you to learn from the experience of others. Spirituality urges you to seek your own. Religion encourages you to explore the thoughts of others and accept as your own while spirituality invites you to come up with your own. Religion is an organization made for the recognition for the sacred while spirituality is what religion is trying to grasp. Spirituality is our truth and perhaps our destiny. Not just our destiny but the ultimatum of our life here on earth.

Why I don’t attend Catholic Church masses…

Catholics attend their Sunday church mass to be enlightened and to receive god’s word through their holy priests. I ‘m a catholic too but unlike other Catholics I don’t regularly attend church masses. If the very purpose of attending is to receive god’s word, I am listening to god every moment of my life. I believe that god communicates within us and not without for we are his creations and we are closest to his heart. The language he uses is our feeling or intuition because it won’t be bounded by language barriers. People might be apprehensive with my beliefs but I respect them. And hopefully they would respect me also.
