    Oddly enough, even though I don't consider myself Buddhist any longer, I still feel as though I'm on my spiritual path. Anyone else relate to that?

    I've decided to do something different with my posting in the forum. After I try the experiment, you can let me know if it worked.

    Great answer. Good to see there are open-minded people here. Life is one spiritual journey.

    It would help to tell us what it is you are going to try?

    However...what you say and feel is rather normal. As an example, many people still feel they are christians... but have no use for the organized religion part.

    Some people are not Christians, but are still on a spiritual path. Christianity is not the only way to be spiritual. Christianity is based on superstitions. Some don't use superstitions to guide their life. JMO

    I'm not going to tell you what I'm trying, I want to see if the result is evident.

    Superstitions can turn up anywhere, not just in Christianity. I've seen Buddhists hold them too.

    Any spiritual practice can become superstitious.

    I use it as an example. All religions are based on superstitions and the desire to control.

    To some yes. Buddhist comes very closely to my own thoughts, but I don't believe in reincarnation. Humanism is more for me. Whatever it takes to get through life on your spiritual journey. It is different for all. I do COEXIST with all religions. That is essential. I was raised a Christian.
    I have no superstitions myself. That took years of work though.:eusa_whistle:
