|These conventions share many common practices, principles, and aims – and yet there are deep differences in strategies, beliefs, and worldviews. This Video is my attempt of setting everything together, and presenting a summary of practice and the common aims of different religious paths.|
In order to have a productive religious life you do not need to follow an institutionalised faith. Spiritual but not religious is a manner also. This does not suggest, however, that convention is rejected by you.
Convention is there to serve you, plus it’d be foolish to throw away the collective growth of mystics over millennia and try and reinvent the wheel.
