Creed, belief or awareness of things of the spirit or spiritual, as opposed to formalized and dogmatic religions. One may be spiritual and not religious.

Rosicrucian Order AMORC
"More than ever, it is time now for us to move from religiosity to spirituality, which means replacing the sole belief in God with the knowledge of divine laws - that is, universal, natural, and spiritual laws. The well-being we seek, including on a material plane, is to be found in this knowledge and in the wisdom that ensues. An ancient Rosicrucian adage says, It is from ignorance and ignorance alone that humans must free themselves. It is indeed at the origin of the worst things a person can do to oneself, to others, and to one's environment. It is also the source of different superstitions that demean humanity and prevent it from finding complete fulfillment. So give a spiritual direction to your life. In other words, do not be just a living thing, be a living soul." [Manifesto Appellatio, Rosicrucian Order AMORC]

"...combine the daily activities with the spiritual development. THIS is a virtue so few have attained - to make their religious experiences, their spirituality, PRACTICAL in their daily lives!" [Cayce 1204-3]

Aubrey Marcus
"Spirituality untested and unchallenged is a sword made of tin. True steel is forged in the fires of Hell." [Aubrey Marcus]

Manly Palmer Hall
"Honesty is the beginning of wisdom. Without honesty, no great spirituality can be accomplished." [Manly Palmer Hall]

Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
"WE will leave you with these thoughts which we beg you will receive deeply into your consciousness and make good use of them in your daily lives. We strongly urge you to band together, irrespective of religious beliefs, in small groups to use the Letters as guide lines for your daily lives. Shed, if you can, your conditioning, and come together in true humility, as people willing to agree they know little of true spirituality - but are strongly desirous of learning how to enhance and spiritualise their lives." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 4, page 22]

"Spirituality is really just the process by which you gain an ever deeper understanding of self. And by knowing self, you come to know higher consciousness, or God if you will. It's an intimate relationship with the ultimate you." [serahdlaine]

Sathya Sai Baba
"Spirituality is the realization of the role of the Spirit in daily life. It is a way of life. Our entire life is bound up with Spirit. All the powers of man are derived from Spirit." [Sathya Sai Baba]

Rudolf Steiner
"In the future, we will eliminate the soul with medicine. Under the pretext of a 'healthy point of view', there will be a vaccine by which the human body will be treated as soon as possible directly at birth, so that the human being cannot develop the thought of the existence of soul and Spirit.
To materialistic doctors, will be entrusted with the task of removing the soul of humanity. As today, people are vaccine against this disease or disease, so in the future, children will be vaccinated with a substance that can be produced precisely in such a way that people, thanks to this vaccination, will be immune to being subjected to the "madness" of spiritual life. He would be extremely smart, but he would not develop a conscience, and that is the true goal of some materialistic circles.

"With such a vaccine, you can easily make the etheric body loose in the physical body. Once the etheric body is detached, the relationship between the universe and the etheric body would become extremely unstable, and man would become an automaton, for the physical body of man must be polished on this Earth by spiritual will. So, the vaccine becomes a kind of arymanique force; man can no longer get rid of a given materialistic feeling. He becomes materialistic of constitution and can no longer rise to the spiritual ". [Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925)]
