I am fed by Super Soul Sunday on the OWN channel. There have been countless spiritual leaders who have touched me by sharing their thoughts with Oprah.
In this broadcast they are sharing their beliefs about many of life’s questions.
Definition of God
Several speakers defined God as Love.
God is the highest place within each and every one of us.
The indwelling consciousness.
God is infinite creativity. Infinite compassion. The evolutionary impulse of the universe.
What is the difference between spiritual and religious?
Ilanya Van Zant
Religion is the rules, regulations, ceremonies and rituals developed by man to develop conformity and uniformity in the approach to God.
Spirituality is God’s call to your soul.
I think that religion is the structure for spirituality I think that spirituality can exist even outside of religion but I do believe that most religions came to be because they wanted to help people understand how to navigate this life from a spiritual standpoint.
Can you be spiritual and not religious? Absolutely!
Can you be religious and not spiritual? Absolutely! Unfortunately.
What is the Soul?
The consciousness that you are, beyond form.
The soul is the birthless, deathless, changeless part of us; the part of us that looks out from behind our eyes and has no form.
The soul is the divine part of our self. It is our divine nature. It is a part of us that is one with God.
The soul is the essence of who and what we are. It is the lure of our becoming.
What do I believe?
I believe in the divinity inside of every single human being.

Isn’t it all fascinating? This journey?
P. S. I wish Rev. Ed Bacon had been included.
