First of all, let us define spirituality. What does it mean to be spiritual? I see that as a connection with the source, God, or whatever name we may want to use. Once we achieve that, we see the light and love of the creator. From that understanding, we move forward to new levels of spiritual achievements.
Do we need religion to get to that understanding? Most of the time, we do not, and as a matter, religions many times bring confusion and lack of clarity.
After all, religion started from spirituality, and of course, one can see it if he or she wants to. Unfortunately, many of us get stuck into the customs and rules of religions, and they forget to be spiritual. With predefined beliefs, we follow blindly, and we forget to find our own truth.
