    Spiritual but not religious

    0 Not allowed!

    Spiritual but not religious" (SBNR) also known as " Spiritual but not affiliated " (SBNA) is a popular phrase and initialism used to self-identify a life stance of spirituality that takes issue with organized religion as the sole or most valuable means of furthering spiritual growth. Spirituality places an emphasis upon the well-being of the "mind-body-spirit", so "holistic" activities such as tai chi, reiki, and yoga are common within the SBNR movement. In contrast to religion, spirituality has often been associated with the interior life of the individual.

    Spirituality is always linked to religion...it just goes hand in hand.
    Its just a trend for many to say they are not religious but spiritual.
    Mostly these people who shy away from rituals but still yearn for some 'divine' connection or feel. They would still be reciting mantras to various deities..meditate etc..all same stuff which come under the umbrella of religion...whatever they practice originated from organized religion.

    Somehow Spirituality seems like Denial to me..why dont people just admit that they are actually Religious?
