. You might have grown up in a religious environment, where you had to go to follow a set of rules or you were "bad" . You might have been forced to go to Sunday celebrations to make your family happy so that they wouldn't bother you. . You might have had a genuine relationship with the God you have been exposed to, but then doubts came in. And you started to question. . . What does it mean to be a good person? . Why do people that should show us the moral compass behave in such undecent ways? . Why someone would preach love and peace and then be one of the angriest persons you know? . Why are some people being nice only when everyone looks at them, and behave like assholes when there are behind closed doors? . . ๐ˆ๐ญ ๐๐จ๐ž๐ฌ๐ง'๐ญ ๐ฆ๐š๐ค๐ž ๐š๐ง๐ฒ ๐ฌ๐ž๐ง๐ฌ๐ž, ๐ซ๐ข๐ ๐ก๐ญ? . . ๐€๐ง๐ ๐ญ๐ก๐š๐ญ ๐ฆ๐š๐๐ž ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ ๐ช๐ฎ๐ž๐ฌ๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐ซ๐ž๐ฅ๐š๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง๐ฌ๐ก๐ข๐ฉ ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ƒ๐ข๐ฏ๐ข๐ง๐ž. ๐–๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐†๐จ๐. ๐–๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐”๐ง๐ข๐ฏ๐ž๐ซ๐ฌ๐ž. . . I know it was like that for me. And I know that I didn't want to use and hear the word "God" for quite some time. . Until I sat down with it. And I studied the different religions. And I asked questions to people from different backgrounds and beliefs.

. . This can be a controversial opinion, but hear me out. . Most religions stand behind the same beliefs. They had a role in society, in creating community and giving a sense of protection. . ๐‘๐ž๐ฅ๐ข๐ ๐ข๐จ๐ง๐ฌ ๐ก๐š๐ฏ๐ž ๐š๐ฅ๐ฌ๐จ ๐›๐ž๐ž๐ง ๐ฐ๐ข๐ฅ๐๐ฅ๐ฒ ๐ฆ๐ข๐ฌ๐ฎ๐ฌ๐ž๐, ๐ญ๐จ ๐ ๐š๐ข๐ง ๐ฉ๐จ๐ฐ๐ž๐ซ ๐š๐ง๐ ๐œ๐จ๐ง๐ญ๐ซ๐จ๐ฅ. . . ๐–๐ก๐ข๐œ๐ก ๐ข๐ฌ ๐ข๐ง๐œ๐ซ๐ž๐๐ข๐›๐ฅ๐ฒ ๐๐š๐ง๐ ๐ž๐ซ๐จ๐ฎ๐ฌ ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ฌ๐š๐. ๐๐ž๐œ๐š๐ฎ๐ฌ๐ž ๐ญ๐ก๐จ๐ฌ๐ž ๐š๐œ๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง๐ฌ ๐ญ๐จ๐จ๐ค ๐š๐ฐ๐š๐ฒ ๐Ÿ๐ซ๐จ๐ฆ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐œ๐จ๐ซ๐ž ๐ฉ๐จ๐ข๐ง๐ญ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ข๐ซ ๐ž๐ฑ๐ข๐ฌ๐ญ๐ž๐ง๐œ๐ž. . . Allowing us to connect to the Divine, in whichever form it feels comfortable to you. . Because we are part of the Divine. We are a part of the Universe. .

What if religions were different paths to get to the same place, to evolve into your own Spirituality, into your connection to the Divine? . . This is what Spirituality is all about . connecting with your inner self . connecting with the bigger picture - God, Universe, or how you refer to It . connection to the present moment . you feel deeply connected to people and what's around you . the ability to navigate smoothly the up and downs of life . the ability to question and evaluate your own beliefs and values . being grounded . increased level of empathy, compassion and understanding that each is on their own path . enhanced sense of calmness . less reactivity . more acceptance of what is, despite your preferences . . When you take up any of these observations, you notice that you start introducing more Compassion, more Understanding, more Calmness in your day. . Spirituality is often such a controversial topic, and it's not explored enough in my opinion. . When it should. It is as natural as anything else. . Dr P.S. Jagadeesh Kumar said "โ€œDon't teach a man, the name of his religion; teach a man, the value of his religionโ€ . . ๐‡๐จ๐ฐ ๐๐ข๐ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐œ๐จ๐ง๐œ๐ž๐ฉ๐ญ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐’๐ฉ๐ข๐ซ๐ข๐ญ๐ฎ๐š๐ฅ๐ข๐ญ๐ฒ ๐œ๐ก๐š๐ง๐ ๐ž ๐ญ๐ก๐ซ๐จ๐ฎ๐ ๐ก๐จ๐ฎ๐ญ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐ฅ๐ข๐Ÿ๐ž?
