Pondering October 28

image“Spiritual Creativity
This new kind of religion asks that you move away from being a follower to being a creator. I foresee a new kind of spiritual creativity, in which we no longer decide whether to believe in a given creed and follow a certain tradition blindly. Now we allow ourselves a healthy and even pious skepticism. Most important, we no longer feel pressure to choose one tradition over another but rather are able to appreciate many routes to spiritual richness. This new religion is a blend of individual inspiration and inspiring tradition.
The idea for this book began with a visit to Walden Pond, which is only an hour’s drive from my house, where, on the Fourth of July, 1845, Henry David Thoreau began his experiment in living alone to discover himself and jump-start a meaningful life.”

Excerpt From: Moore, Thomas. “A Religion of One’s Own.”
