Awakening is the realization that far more can be found in direct experience than any concept, belief system, or narrative. The process of awakening is an ever-unfolding one, a deepening of that which is beyond all words and thoughts. We are in service of discovering that for ourselves.

Sacred music does NOT have to be religious. But it might give you chills, remind you you are a conscious being, feel deeply meaningful, or self reflective. Lyrics may or may not deal with themes of spirituality and religion.

Hi, so I have a question that I haven't fully wrapped my head around.

So I was talking to another person on the path to enlightenment. And I mentioned how I do a mixture of meditations including chakra meditation.

And they basically said that there's an issue with many in our society with religious and spirituality appropriation.

She said that if you are Hindu then you can do chakra meditations but if you aren't Hindu it's wrong.

I followed up with saying my belief that only a portion of each religion may be factually correct because of the passing of rumors and word of mouth. And that because of that and me also having a near death experience, I think life is all about picking and choosing what to believe in and what to follow even if it's a assortment of things.

And she said the issue is that because you've already had a near death experience you're basically putting me down and saying I'm wrong.

I don't believe that's at all what I was doing but understand that there's always different perceptions

Anyways she said" so because I'm spiritual but not certain religions I say that I stretch not do yoga and I work on my pin points. Not chakras."

Is there really a issue with only following bits and pieces of religions to further my own spirituality? And using the words that said religions use for a categorization of what I like?

At the end of the day it's all about communication with this kind of issue but I want to be mindful of others as well so I'd just like to understand if this is a universal issue and it really isn't mindful or if it's simply one persons pet peeve that I should be mindful of.
