Spirituality has nothing to do with subscribing to a new series of thoughts in your head. When people shift from one worldview or religion to another, it usual comes in the form of switching belief systems and adopting a new ideology. The number one biggest spiritual myth is that spirituality is just another belief system we have to adopt. Sometimes, we end up confusing spirituality with a sort of New Age belief system instead of as a skillset, a way of interacting with thought and emotion, and a relationship with the present moment. Instead of presence, emotional mastery, communication, self-realization, and self-awareness, things like crystals, channeling, divination, and and astrology receive the most attention. There is nothing wrong with any of those things, but is spirituality about investing your belief in a new field of study? Or is it about self-discovery and the pursuit of wisdom? All of the gurus, mystics, masters, and teachers that have inspired us through the ages never taught us anything that we have to believe in. They taught us things we could discover and experience through reflection, meditation, and introspection. Spirituality is not a belief system or a religious ideology.
