Spiritual Vs Religious – Oh Yea I’m Going There – Religious Drama – They Should Have Listened To Their Momma – 15+ Reasons Why I Question Religious Drama

If you have reviewed at least a few of my over 200 blog posts (and now podcasts) you would clearly know that I am not a big fan of organized religion.

Like many people, I have adopted the position of being spiritual, but not religious. At times, I despise religion. …Too much drama. I am amazingly comfortable with my position until I am changed in mind (through experience and research) and spirit (through God’s intervention).

In this post, I reveal 15+ reasons why I shy away from Religion and Religious Drama. Some of the most negative experiences that I’ve had were with Religious people. …Ones who judge about what I would call minor sins such as using profanity, eating pork, or being too proud, while they blatantly violate in worst ways.

As I am judged by them, I could think of a plethora of violations that they make, “In the name of Jesus/Allah”. I don’t tell them directly. I tell them in general through my creative, written, and media works. But I admit that it is a bit frustrating.

I try my best to stay clear of these types of people, though they seem to be drawn to me. I simply respect their beliefs (for them) but fully exercise my right to free will and thought. They spit on me with scripture, while I realize that the bible has 900 versions, and the Quran has 30. I consider that there are missing books, slavery’s influence, and man’s interpretation, depriving me of mine. I am not sure that they realize this.

God’s Purpose For UR Life Is Imprinted On UR Heart – Deepak’s Spiritual Law of Dharma Shows U How To Discover UR True Self – UR True Purpose

In today’s turbulent times it would be prudent to go within to examine yourself.  There is something very beautifully unique about each of us that we must discover and share with the world.

Now is the time to calibrate our spirits, fine-tune our vibrations.  This is something over which we have complete control, unlike our uncertain future, given today’s racial protests and the coronavirus pandemic.

Tuning the spirit is the most that we can do to prepare ourselves for what may come, which is an unknown.  Though what awaits us is a mystery, we would be better prepared to rest on a strong identity of self and a fortified spiritual foundation than not.

I am basking in the joy of having elevated my spirit years ago.  During today’s Racial Revolution and COVID19 pandemic, I have not been fearful.  In fact, my creativity and energy have been elevated, as well.  For me, it is an exciting time.  In contrast, I see a correlation between those not in touch with their inner spirit and being fearful, worried, and physically unhealthy.

This post is based on the principles in the book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, by Deepak Chopra.  Today we focus on the Spiritual Law of Dharma.  Dharma is your purpose in life.  This law requires that we find life’s purpose for the spiritual embryo within ourselves and pursue it with vigor.

When I first reintroduced the Seven Spiritual Laws series, I adapted it for the crisis of the day, which was only the coronavirus pandemic.  I only covered one of the spiritual laws so far, The Law of Detachment.  I took the liberty of rearranging the order of Deepak Chopra’s laws because they work in order, individually and in mixed order when you practice them regularly.

That Thing U Do Is Like No Other – Karma Must Have Led U To UR Dharma

The Spiritual Law of Dharma

dharma I am finding greater happiness each day now that I am pursuing my passion for writing. 

I know that writing, creative communications, as well as, seeking and propagating what I see as truth are my passions.  I know because I can’t stop thinking about them.  Ideas pop into my head throughout the day, and in the middle of the night.  I spend hours each day at the computer posting and researching, often not getting much sleep, and letting eating totally skip my mind.

One of the biggest indicators that I am pursuing my purpose, is when I lose all senses of space and time.  This happens when I’m are deep into an effort, and look at my watch and surprisingly notice that 6 hours have passed, when it seemed like only an hour.

Another indicator is not being able to pull away from a project of passion.  Like everyone, I have hundreds of items to get to on my task list.  But I always gravitate to that same ole task, diligently working it, ignoring the others.  No matter how far behind I may get on other ‘to do’s’, I repeatedly go back to the one task that gives me the most joy.

These repeated escapes from reality into manifesting my vision is an indicator that I may have discovered or am discovering my Dharma. 

Dharma is our purpose in life, with the belief that we were all created with a unique talent or ability to offer to the world. 

But it’s not a passion that is pursued blindly.  It is pursuit while adhering to other spiritual laws, and doing so with a sincere intention to help others, with this special talent or ability.

The reason that finding your purpose in life is so important, is that finding your purpose is synonymous with finding happiness.  We’re all meant to be happy, and finding our Dharma is the only path to lasting happiness.

So, follow your Dharma no matter what it is, no matter how much you may get discouraged.

Remember, living your Dharma is the only way to optimal and permanent happiness.
