Spiritual vs Religious
There is a difference between spiritual and religious prayer.
Spiritual prayer takes place when you are physically, emotionally, and mentally connected to your God-Goddess All That Is and instead of a series of requests, apologies or self-incrimination. Spiritual prayer has much to do with two or more-way communication. Spiritual prayer is self-empowering.
Religious prayer is a one-sided conversation of requests, apologies or self-incrimination from you to a god like figure or to God-goddess-all-that-is. Religious prayer is not empowering.
