I agree, especially about having an open mind! I think it’s awesome when someone can debate a topic respectfully☺️
Hi! Thank you for chiming in☺️ that is what I was getting at, so sorry if it was unclear lol.

Spirituality is individualism, and in my mind, exercising my belief in a higher power, in my own light. Should that be frowned upon solely because I’m not connected with someone’s faith?
existentialism is individualism... spiritualism is still a need to believe in something so i disagree but feel free to believe what you like, even if you can't make sense of it yourself. i was just answering the question as i see it personally
I definitely don’t want you to get the impression that I’m negating or disputing your opinion. I’m completely open to other opinions and want to understand individuals with a more religious belief, which is why I asked.
yeah i can see that ;) ok so in your version of ''spiritualism'' is there a god but you dont like the structure of organized religion? if so i can understand that... its the wishy washy ramblings of the groups i mentioned before that i really dont see as anything more than wanting to appear to be interesting people.
I can understand your view, but to me, religion are such a matter of convenience and solace. Only disturbed people seek solace. Spirituality is looking Inward.
your version of spirituality is obviously different then to those that look to the stars or believe in ribbons of energy linked up to stones etc and infact not too far from my own existentialism which stems from me myself looking internally and coming to the conclusion im flesh bones and electrical impulses... maybe im just further down the line with it because when i was around your age i may have said the exact same thing as you
You’re not far down the line, you just need to vibrate higher. Not everyone with agree with your choices but it’s solely about you.
lol if you knew the journey i have been on you wouldn't think that at all... you do understand existentialism isn't a bad thing and infact having reached a point of understanding it i feel more liberated and free than ever before... and that includes all the lsd, weed and mdma fuelled partying of the past... dont underestimate an aging hippie lol
Sorry for the late response lol but yes, I do understand that individualism and existentialism are not far apart and it isn’t a bad thing.
no worries ;)
If that is your view. For me, Christianity is a practiced belief with a shared group (obviously over a massive unit of time), as with spirituality is an individual practice of peace and purpose.
*its fine if that is your view
True, it’s a long explanation tho lol mine was short one. Thank you 😊
