Three pertinent ideas
Spirituality vs. Religion

While many may believe that the two are one in the same.  I disagree.  
You can be spiritual without being religious.  And you can also be
religious without being spiritual.  Four quotes I've heard about the
difference that I truly enjoy.

~ Religion is for people scared of going to hell, while spirituality
is for people who've been in hell. ~

~ Religion is man's search for a God. Spirituality is God's
search for a man. ~

~ Religion has torn the world apart.  Spirituality is teaching the
world to hold hands. ~

~ Religion is belief in someone else's experience.  Spirituality
is having your own experience. ~
