When I write something about my spirit, does it belong to a religion? When I tell what aches my soul and what drives it to keep on this jagged road and fierce battle inside, does my struggle belong to a specifically tailored god? When I try to figure out the ways in and out my psyche and learn to lead it better, do I seek out the means inside my spirit, or do I wait for religion to tell me which way to look to find the answer; anywhere but inside?!
Is my writing spiritual or religious? Although many stories might seem to have come from a certain religion, the reason behind these stories is to search within and try to figure out a place for the spirit to fit in this world of chaos. If it reaches the spirit, it does not matter then if it belongs to any religion; it does not matter which god it worships. All that matters is the journey taken within, for long have we been searching for the light somewhere outside, while life with all its lights and secrets lie right inside our spirits.
I apologize for any offense some might take from my Spiritual Echoes, but there are none inflicted in the first place, for the sole reason for all these spiritual talks is to brighten and widen the space within to see better from inside out, and through our differences we flourish like the many flowers of spring. Leave out one shade of one color and you will mar the spring. This is how our spirits are, just as colorful, and spring does not come without its colors. I will seek out the colors inside, join me in this journey to the core of ourselves.
