Dogma, ritual and rhetoric have confused the issues of spirituality in our lives. Too often, our time for contemplation and openness is spent on studying rules, regulations, and interpretations of the theories that others have conjured up. Many spend inordinate amounts of time searching for the true meaning rather than living life itself. This syndrome has been manufactured through the way that spirituality has been presented to us. Religion, which is credited with the establishment of civilization, has often been the very center of why we individually do not find our greatest purpose. Community is a necessity and spiritual organizations play a major role in formulating this vital arena. We must never forget that for community and society to further itself we as people must open up our possibilities to greater spiritual practice.
