If so, you may be one of the more than 20% of the population who describe themselves as “spiritual but not religious” (SBNR).... So what’s the difference between many organized religions and spirituality anyway? Here are 5 key distinctions: Many organized religions represent God as an external entity. Spirituality portrays God as an integral aspect of our humanity. And as mystic scholar Andrew Harvey passionately illuminates in the audio clip I’ll be sharing with you below, Jesus himself was spiritual but not religious.
However, over the centuries, theologians and church leaders have edited, misinterpreted and distorted Jesus’ original teachings. It’s not surprising then that many former churchgoers eventually grew disillusioned with the Jesus presented in organized religion, and “threw out the baby with the bathwater” when they stopped attending.

From the perspective of your spirit, slavery encompasses how the attachments in your life—such as sex, material items, money, power and all that they bring—prevent you from being free. Bondage has to do with the ways in which your ego (or collection of identities) and your karmic loops bind you into the reality you experience, and thereby limit your human growth.

In the classic study of charismatic authority, sociologist Max Weber stressed the importance of followers recognising the charismatic healer or leader as endowed with special powers (Weber, 1922). It is a general finding that attentional processing and executive function recruit the same frontal regions and therefore compete for resources in critical situations (Engle et al., 1995; Richeson et al., 2003; Fuentes, 2004). We hypothesize that a mechanism similar to that of hypnosis may facilitate charismatic influence.
