Religion and Spirituality and Different Perspectives Around Them

Humanity’s mental stages differ in the way they perceive religion and spirituality. While many consider them equal, others believe religion and spirituality are poles apart, and they prefer to be spiritual rather than religious.

Humanity’s mental stages differ in the way they perceive religion and spirituality. While many consider them equal, others believe religion and spirituality are poles apart, and they prefer to be spiritual rather than religious. In fact, people’s encounters with these subjects are different, particularly in today’s modern world. People prefer to follow things which they can accept comfortably and that they can support rationally. Science remains at the core of argument while supporting things and they seek logical explanations of everything, even in religion and spirituality. Thinkers also believe that science and rationality will win over the sacred in satisfying human needs. However, people still understand that the religion will stay forever but to present itself in new ways.

The young generation marks it as spiritual as they believe religion is becoming rigid, narrow and less attractive. On the other hand spirituality provides them new paradigms of consciousness and allows them to deal with various aspects of life freely that are not easy with religion. Despite beliefs and perceptions, deep inside everyone knows that religion and spirituality both will stay and remain there with humanity as both these disciplines have their advocates favoring their opinions and preaching about the scriptures in their respective religions.

How do people, who claim to be religious or spiritual, consider them so? The explanation for this also varies as people have their own opinions and specific ways to describe it to others. It’s all about personal notions, beliefs, and sometimes learned practices. Whatever it is, the only fact is that there’s nothing like scientific explanations for religion and spirituality. People have their own opinions and beliefs to think the way they do.
