Most religious followers do experience spirituality from words, because words can be interpreted by the mind. This has been the preferred method of the masses for many centuries.
It has coincided perfectly with the thought required to create the current reality where humans hold varied statuses and societal rank, and seek to rule one another.
Now consciousness is evolving toward creating a reality that is a much clearer expression of our true essence. We’re positive that you will like it.
Every path leads to realization of Self, but when we release mental habits and limitations, the journey is far more splendid. Your current beliefs are a manifestation of your desire to experience wholeness. When the veil is lifted, that desire will be fulfilled.
But for the moment, hang on to what you feel the need to, and enjoy the ride.
