In America, and in other parts of the world, we have freedom of religion. We can choose any religion we want and hold any religious belief we want. We can even change religions and, for the most part, no one will try to stop us — except perhaps family and those of our former religion.
We can even have freedom from religion. We can choose not to be a part of any religious belief system. If we make that choice, the conclusion often drawn is that we have become an atheist or an agnostic. But, there is a third choice, one that many people are making even if they don’t recognize it as a choice. We can choose to have no specific religious affiliation, or we can choose to be affiliated with several different faiths at the same time. Where is it written that we must pick one and deny the others? Another choice is to decide to be free from religion but still believe in a higher power that provides for all our spiritual needs. I encounter many people in this category who tell me they are spiritual but not religious. Why should we limit our choices? If our goal is to connect with The Divine, why restrict our search to one way of thinking?
