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.

"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]

"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]
