    What does it mean when people say they are spiritual, not religious?

      That they exhibit the qualities religion defines as positive and available only through their god.

      What a copout!  But it's all I have.

      Many people believe in a higher power (spirit) but don't belong to an organized religion.  Some qualities which they practice are common such as forgiveness, a connection with nature, kindness to all living things, etc. - while other things such as using crystals or sacred objects might be viewed as strange - just my "off the cuff" thoughts
