Our public Samhain ritual actually went smoothly; a circle was cast, the directions were called, the ancestors were invoked, chants were chanted, drums were beaten, the Druids and Voodoo people did their thing, a repast was enjoyed by all, draughts of home-brewed mead were drunk; no mobs of fundies with torches and pitchforks were in attendance, all of us made it home safely; so - a successful ritual, altogether.

Wish you all could have been there..... but then the church hall might have become a bit crowded......

Blessed Be everyone - looking forward to Yule......

Alchymist.

Well I had this discussion back when I was a young teenager and those definitions are what the people and I came to, I did not have this conversation with other teenagers but with Elders I have always found it easier to connect with my Elders than people my own age.

IMHO which may completely wrong but this is the way I see it spirituality is your personal beliefs or lack there of also your personal relationship with the Divine or lack there of and religion is the set guidelines and rules that one follows it can either help one to become more spiritual or can smother their spirituality depending on the person

I concur.  Nice definitions Aug!

Your spirituality is connection of your Self to whatever you choose to believe.  Your religion (if applicable) is an individual or group sanctioned set of tenets and guidelines followed by your chosen spirituality.

I've met people who are very religious, but don't seem very spiritual. They know the doctrine of their faith by heart, can spout bible verses on demand, but don't seem to have any kind of spiritual connection. They know the word of their faith, and how to live by that word, but they don't know the heart of their faith.

So your perception of how someone practices one's faith determines if they are spiritual? Kind of an arrogant stance, no? Are you an adept at the "heart of their faith"?

I've also met people who don't believe in religion or spirituality. They ascribe everything to luck or coincidence or happenstance. They find it impossible to believe that any deity/dieties could or would have any impact in in their lives.

How does one not believe in spirituality if spirituality is what you believe or feel? Does that mean they don't believe in what they believe? Does spirituality have only to do with deity? What of one believes that spirits are inherent in all that is but doesn't believe in a supreme being? Does that make her/him not spiritual?

On the flip side, I've met people that are very spiritual, but don't follow any one religious path. They don't necessarily disagree with religion, just find a spiritual connection without having the need of following any one doctrine.

Interesting. I got stuck behind a school bus on the way home. Apparently the bus was a religion.

But all seriousness aside, can you be religious and not spritual?

Can you be neither? If so, do that mean you don't feel?

My thoughts:

Religion is what you follow.
Spiritual is what/how you feel. 

You can be one and not the other or both.
