What if our religion was each other?
If our practice was our life?
If prayer was our words?
What if the Temple was the Earth?
If forests were our church?
If holy water—the rivers, lakes and oceans?
What if meditation was our relationships?
If the Teacher was life?
If wisdom was self-knowledge?
If love was the center of our being…
In the West, there is a chasm between ‘spiritual’ and ‘unspiritual’. People think if they meditate they are spiritual and if they watch a movie they are worldly. Spirituality does not lie in things or places or practices. We can meditate in a very worldly way, and we can watch a movie while seeing everything as the dance of pure Consciousness. Spirituality is an outlook, an attitude, a way of approaching all the circumstances and situations of life, not a list of things to do or don’t do.
