Again can you read? Where in did I say any man of Spiritual preference follows religious Guidelines? The fact is that if you are spiritual in the
sense you believe in an afterlife. Again ATHEISTS CANNOT BE SPIRITUAL!! I never claimed anyone of spirituality having anything to do with religious
guidelines, being spiritual means you are VOID of man made religioins but that you still share the same concept of a apparent AFTERLIFE!!! I haven't
stated any other connection between the two other then the fact that both sides believe they are devine enough to go somewhere else after death.
Please, Please, Please read before you post again or I'll just repost this.
I agree with what you are saying a Spiritual man is but your missing the fact that the word spirit would hint that you think you have a soul, which
would hint at that you think this isn't the only life.

Right then there is an element yet still vastly different. I'm still baffled why your have such a insatious desire to continously compare two totally
different things all the time, merely by a few minor details.
But I'm not religous and for you to say that I am to be honest it's quite insulting. Spiritualism is a totally different concept to relgion.
Spiitialism is your own personal journey of your life with your souls purpose. Relgioun is study of principle beliefs that other people created for
you to follow. It's also appalling to see you use language to degrade people who are spiritual as being phoney. I'd be surprised you didnt get a
warning for that.
Spirituality has always been a personal relationship with the cosmos and you as a being.
Relgion is based on a group who believe in topics of whatever is specific to their beliefs. For example not all relgions believe in an after life.
Some believe in reincarnation
Paganism. is not relgion but they believe in an afterlife. Its quite insulting that your degrading spiritualism, to a soiciety led belief system that
is calle relgion. Relgion is a form of power and its a statement to the world of what you are believing in. Like your belief could be god, money, fame
etc. Spiritualism detest this nonsense and has no simalarity what so ever Relgion denotes fear. Spiritualism does not. Relgion is non personal,
spiritualism is all about being personal
I really don't see why your trying to compare them, in fact I don't even know why your doing it at all.
It's like trying to compare black and white. You can't yet they are colours, but they are not remotely simalar. Anyway this topic is back to
SPIRITUAL LEADERS LEADING THE WORLD. Enough about relgion please.
