Quote of the month

Spirituality does not come from religion.

It comes from our soul. We must stop confusing religion and spirituality.  Religion is a set of rules, regulations, and rituals created by humans, which were supposed to help people spiritually.  Due to human imperfection religion has become corrupt, political, divisive and a tool for power struggle.

Spirituality is not theology or ideology.

It is a way of life, pure and original as given by the Most High.

Spirituality is a network linking us to the Most High, the Universe, and each other.
