The bad news: some people will continue to clutch their beliefs, their rights, and their (limited) understandings with such a firm grasp until something actually dies. That is why we call it a “death-grip”. Something has to die before we will allow ourselves to let go. What dies may be compassion, a relationship, love, or even another human being.
The good news: there are people all around you who are learning how to be better listeners, better communicators, more flexible in their (limited) understandings, and more willing to remain united amidst diverse thinking.
The great news: you get to choose who you want to become and what tribe you want to run with.
RELIGION is the rules, regulations, ceremonies, and rituals, developed by man to create conformity and uniformity in the approach to God.
SPIRITUALITY is God’s call in your soul.
