When is spirituality okay?
Greetings! It has been ages since I've been here and I've grown a lot. (Namely, I've given up religion but I'm still a spiritual person. I despise "religion" nowadays.)
Notice that I didn't say "when is theism, religion, etc." Spirituality is a little different and feel free to correct me with a different word if I'm not being accurate.
So my question really is, when it it 100% okay to be spiritual? And I mean this in the sense that a spiritual person adheres to no particular doctrine (perhaps a few choice ones that are "loving teachings", for instance) and also they think for themselves. If anything a good word is "hopeful" for things like a loving afterlife, ultimate justice, etc.
I can understand the need for many of you to change the thinking of people who are irrational in their thoughts so they might better themselves. But how is just hoping or even believing wrong?
I posed this question because I get the sense that many of you are so stanch in your beliefs that you would be unaccepting of something, because you (like everyone else in the world, it's proven) are not unbiased.
Sorry in advance that I'm not as much of a heavyweight contender as some of you debaters are btw.
It is said the great ones catch teardrops in their hands.
