An interesting question Gina145. The second as much. I am odd with religion. I answered a similar question here in the 'answer' section many months back. The answer is 'yes, however it is the definition of religion that plays along here. My religion by definition today is 'hubpages' and not the construed practices attributed to a deity.' However, that is religion and not spirituality. I separate those two emphatically. More gnostic than theist, believer is a given and not at question, since as a gnostic believing is inclusive, yet not central.
I know sounds weird. Continuing with an answer, sharing, a few years ago the religion I practiced centered around the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). Living and breathing it day in and day out some said fanatical as they sat watching a NBA playoff game. A neighbor down the street is a naturalist with strong vegan values. Her greeting to me tends to start with "When are you going to stop wearing those shoes, Tim." My reply tends to be the same "I dun'no?"
The background I have is eclectic, while again I emphasize for 'self' it is spirituality that is revered today and religion is just a lifestyle choice. Remember that is only a view I have, shared, and not necessarily a truth for all or any.
Regarding membership of a specific faith with its religious connotations of deity, prescribed dogma and doctrine, and traditions, well, I shall wait until marriage with a significant other. Then, we'll sit down with her religious leadership and ponder the this and that's, what must be adhered to and renounced, and finally celebrated in sacrament while facing destiny and eternity as one.
Until that day I more than likely will continue practices of meditation and prayer, which is an action and not a thought. Seeking communication while allowing for awareness I shall listen with patience and hope to see without looking the answers offered freely as believing realizes the gnosis of reality.
Thank you. Gina145, for the opportunity of both pondering a wonderful and powerful question and seeking within what is not usually sought. (smile)
