Can one rescue spirituality from religion?

It is the super ego of mankind that is still trying to segregate spirituality from religion. Look at this sad attempt of a few who think they can 'rescue spirituality' from religion.

Without an iota of religious leaning, there cannot be any spirituality and that is what every religion teaches. Unfortunately, the man kind is (well most of them) is hell bent on trying to understand God in a logical way.

For them, everything needs to be dissected to make people understand. That is the REAL PROBLEM.

See, they have understood God, religion with the help of God and religion but they are afraid to take it to the world because they have to explain to the world scientifically.

Why are are people so oblivious to the one eye opening book, "Bhagavat Gita".

God is not to be understood. Godness- it is only to be felt and to be practiced.

I encounter more and more people who identify themselves as “spiritual but not religious.” What exactly does this category of self-identity mean? Perhaps anthropology can offer some clues. Anthropologists of religion recognize that there is a universal human capacity to wonder at the mysteries of life and death, and a need to make sense of or find meaning in the strange circumstances we find ourselves in. Drawing on the insights of the anthropology of religion, it seems it is universally common for human beings to strive to make meaning of the mysteries of birth, life, death, and the cosmos.
The religious landscape of the future is likely to see a greater capacity for ambiguity. Along with globalization and rapid technological advancement comes increasing complexity. As a result of this complexity the human capacity for spirituality can no longer be met now or in the future by a one-size-fits-all approach to religion.
