Live the life your soul wants

8.Compromising spirituality

These insights are to bring awareness to the conflicts that happen when one tries to compromise spirituality to suit religious dogma.

It is a problem when people try to rationalise the beliefs of spirituality to fit in with their religious beliefs. In doing this they conveniently undermine the teaching of other spiritual philosophies, so it doesn’t appear to cause conflict with their religious beliefs.

Those who are fulfilled in their religion do not have these issues. Why then do some people search for more than their religion gives them? They do it because they are not fulfilled spiritually thus, their belief in god alone does not fulfil their spiritual selves.

For many, their souls are leading them away from the limitations of religious dogma so they can explore spirituality from a broader perspective. However, there’s an element of guilt ingrained in them about what they are doing, thus why they try to rationalise things, so they don’t have to face what is being asked of them.

Many will experience conflict from within and from those around them, until a path is chosen rather than trying to blend two different beliefs and philosophies that are very divergent from one another.

One of the reasons many people are still searching for their purpose in life, is because they haven’t been able to discover their spiritual selves, and real relationship to the greater consciousness of the universe.

When they start to awaken to their true selves, religion will be one of the many things that will be challenged. Other issues will be with their families, as their families fear they are moving away from their spiritual roots, so will often try to interfere with their path to stop what is in motion.

As they awaken to their soul more it may challenge them to walk a different path, and one that believes in god from a broader perspective. Being spiritual requires one to be flexible which does not fit with the dogmas of a religion.

Spirituality and religion are not one and the same. Believing in a biblical god does not place one on a spiritual path. Blending the two can present many challenges for the personality about what they believe about themselves, and what they believe god to be.
