Definitely. I am a religious person, but choose to keep it contained. I feel it is a personal choice, not something to make others feel awkward or trapped.

Absolutely! I pray, I praise, I study my bible, or at least I will usually spend a minute each day focusing on a particular scripture, but sometimes I completely get side tracked in the middle. I usually do this at the start of everyday, but not always. My family and I have Godly discussions pretty often, even just about what the bible says about something, things we might have trouble with in life, etc. I used to attend church -- all my life up until I got into my late teen years & then my partner & I went back to my church for a long time, but just quit. I can't explain it, but I wasn't getting anywhere. They changed preachers & then there was an older man who kept taking the stage on Wednesday nights & spent the time preaching about us teens wearing holey jeans and yadda yadda. That was my last time. I can watch Joyce Meyer at home and learn a heck of a lot more than I can in a church bench listening to an old man complain about what clothing my age group wears. My jeans did not have holes in them that particular night & he wasn't talking about some gaping, very exposing holes in jeans -- he was complaining about jeans with those "stylish" tears on the knee. Who cares?! You know? I'm here to learn about God and we're talkin' jeans? I felt badly also because I do have jeans with some tearing & well, so the heck what?!

Not only that, but I was getting restless and wasn't learning anything. I know it's my problem with paying attention, but I just couldn't get up the desire to go back. I mean, I want to learn about how to live life in my days and do it the best I can, with a good, God-pleasing attitude, etc. I want to learn about what the bible has to say about everything, not just the minor things because some preachers are too scared to bring up other things. I want to learn it all. So that is why I became a huge Joyce Meyer & Creflo Dollar fan. They teach me these things. They're preaching has taught me more in just 3 years than I've learned in my entire life of attending church. Nothing necessarily against the church, but more about how I learn & my personal needs when it comes to learning and all.

I get a lot from my spirituality & it really does make myself and my life totally better, different than what it'd have been without God in my life, so I do try and keep up with my spiritual "activities." It has been a while since I listened to an entire sermon, but that's mostly because of being busy and not having TV in the bedroom anymore. I just listen to the TV in our living room when a good preacher is on. Sometimes it catches my attention even while I'm in another room. Oh, can't forget Kenneth Copeland & Joel Olsteen! Those two have also been big preachers in my life. Listened to them both every since I can remember, because my grandmother always did. That's what got me into it later when I got older. I always loved when I'd be in bed at her house, half asleep and could hear Joel Olsteen or Kenneth Copeland preaching. I'd stay in bed & listen while drifting in and out of sleep. Their words were always so strangely comforting to me. So it hung with me & I still get excited listening. I just really love Joel Olsteen's voice and his way with people, from what I see on TV and all. It's not common to hear such kind words.

Very. I do alot of self learning as well. Like all Christians should. Pastors are a guide and nothing more. I love God and am committed to him.

I pray a lot and read spiritually uplifting books. I've tried church and get nothing from it, just like I did as a kid. I stay away from the Bible because it scares me. Seriously. My 12 step program fulfills me in the area of spirituality.

I used to meditate every day.
I read a lot of spiritual books with eastern philosophies.
I also went to yoga classes every week.

I've been slacking lately with my spirituality lol.

I want to ask my friends if they will go to a meditation center with me someday. There's a Jain center not too far from here.
They're the people with the monks in Asia who wear masks over their faces and don't drive cars so they won't kill bugs. But everyone in the US who practices that form of spirituality are just vegans who don't slap mosquitoes when they bite them and practice nonviolence to everyone. It's also not a temple, it's just a big room full of comfy couches where people get sit and meditate together.

I think following Jainism is something I'd like to do someday because when I went there, I think the people there were the so nice. They were all super friendly and gave off good vibes and I felt real comfortable around them. I really can't explain how awesome these people are. They're literally the nicest people I've ever met. If I made a list of that, the people I met there would be #1.

I want to be that sort of person someday but I think I'm kind of too much of an asshole to do a 180 and become saintly. I guess it's a process or whatever. I also kind of hate that I wouldn't be able to kill bugs and stuff. But you win some, you lose some. I guess being extremely positive and reaching inner peace and whatever is worth capturing flies and letting them outside instead of swatting them.

I am not the least bit spiritual or religious. Actually I am anti religious and anti spiritual.

I meditate every day and try to spend as much time as possible outdoors in nature. I also try to do as much as I can to help other living beings, and to harm them as little as possible. These are simple things, not part of any grand spiritual practice, but utterly fulfilling nonetheless.
