While religion and spirituality are similar in the foundation, they are very different in practice. Religion is an organized, community-based system of beliefs, while spirituality resides within the individual and what they personally believe. “The idea of religion and spirituality is like a rectangle versus a square.
There are some pretty clear ways in which religion and spirituality differ. Religion: This is a specific set of organised beliefs and practices, usually shared by a community or group. Spirituality: This is more of individual practice, and has to do with having a sense of peace and purpose.
Spirituality is the broad concept of a belief in something beyond the self. It may involve religious traditions centring on the belief in a higher power, but it can also involve a holistic belief in an individual connection to others and to the world as a whole.
Spirituality involves the recognition of a feeling or sense or belief that there is something greater than myself, something more to being human than sensory experience, and that the greater whole of which we are part is cosmic or divine in nature.
People may identify as being any combination of religious and spiritual, but to be religious does not automatically make you spiritual or vice–versa.
