MYSTICISM BLATHER

Mysticism without social action is navel gazing. The great mystics like St. Francis, Dalai Lama, Archbishop Tutu and Gandhi meditated and then acted for justice in the world. The current "I am spiritual but not religious" trendy cliche is an example of practice without a connection to the social and political issues of the world around us.

The word religious literally means to reconnect. Truly religious people reconnect with God and the world in regular corporate worship.

Do you think the people who say, "I am spiritual but not religious" are finding excuses not to connect?

or do you think that religion stopped connecting to people's lives so people stopped identifying as religious?
