Religion has fixed rules and regulations, specific rituals and rites, hierarchies of power and authority - none of which is necessary for a personal belief in god/s or a spiritual understanding of life. Imo, obviouslyI'm curious how spirituality is defined in the absence of religious context.
It sometimes feels a bit like the way people use the word 'god' generically - like they'll say they're not religious but still believe in god, which seems somewhat paradoxical: To describe the thing you believe using the language of religion gets confusing. Is 'spirituality' the same, or does it's meaning have more independence than 'god' from religious context?
