What does it mean?:..."I'm going to church"
I was born and bred in church....does going to church really mean anything?
It really means something if you grow from being religious to being spiritual by leveraging your visits to church.
My Guru Mata Amritanandamayi used to say "It is okay to be born in temple but don't die in temple". What she means is that a mere religious (and mechanical, sentimental or even maniacal) attachment to temple (church) is not going to lead one to spirituality and the inner growth should take place simultaneously. If that happens, one will grow out of (mere ritualistic visits to) temple, or getting stuck to the temple (=dying in temple).
Again, if visits to temple have not correctly fueled our spirituality (or we failed to correctly acquire the benefits), then again we are the losers.
This is very insightful. There was a time when church attendance was important to acquiring my spiritual knowledge and practicing the principles. I can still appreciate an occasional visit, but it is now not the total of my spiritual life.
