Philosophy, Religion, Spirituality

Philosophy seeks to understand if we exist. Religion tells us how we should live. Spirituality seeks to live in the present moment.

Philosophy deals with the mind and the intellect. Religion deals with the mind and intellect, but also the spiritual essence of life. Spirituality seeks to transcend the mind to be conscious of the Divine Consciousness.

Philosophy leads to endless debate and different viewpoints. Religion also leads to disputes over which religion is best. Spirituality seeks to ignore mental dispute but experience the underlying reality of life.

Philosophy is too proud to experience joy, the aim of philosophy is mental astuteness. Religion sometimes seeks joy, and sometimes feels the necessity of suffering and sacrifice. Spirituality seeks to experience the delight which is the essence of existence.

Philosophy starts the journey, religion continues the journey, spirituality enables to escape the endless cycle of Samsara (birth and rebirth).
