Spirituality V Religion


I’m a Muslim because I have 100% conviction that Islam is the truth, and this has been affirmed through times when I’ve asked from my Lord and he has provided.  But there are times I experience moments that leave me questioning the height of spirituality.

Twice now I’ve been contacted by Non Muslims who have reached out to me telling me that they had an urgency to contact me out of no where, at a time when I was in need of wisdom.  Now these are people I value highly for good character and conduct.  Which leaves me revisiting a realm of spirituality that see’s no divisions, all it see’s is vibrations and frequencies.

If you’re loosing me at this point, than maybe spirituality ain’t your thang, but if you’re intrigued then what I’m getting at, is what is it that transforms our behaviour? Our ability to communicate on a spiritual plane or a physical one.

It is fast becoming my opinion that purification of the soul, or self is what elevates our ability to conduct ourselves on a spiritual plane.  For example meeting someone who fasts, meditates, is grateful, eats good, abstains from intoxicants will present to you a different set of outcomes in comparison to one who does all of the opposite.  And what clearly makes these people distinct is their ability to over-ride the lowly things that control us and keep us away from exploring our spirituality.

When you’re hungry you eat, when you’re tired you sleep, when you’re horny you have sex, when you’re angry you shout!  With no restraint you lack the discipline required to help you elevate on a spiritual plane.

So concluding my theory, it is those that practice restraint, whether it is in the name of God, Health or Self, elevating them to a world that delivers them instincts others cannot attain without the same disciplines in place, is what unites us.

Whether or not Religion is the truth, continues to be the journey of the self to decide with the aid of the Most High, the creator of everything that exists!

Big love to my spiritual brothers and sisters, I have many! Praise be to God!
