Spirituality, like religion, is an attempt to appease the masses by over-simplifying the human condition.

In many cases they suggest that subscribing to some abstract way of thinking is a solution to subjective needs for redemption, moral fulfillment, or satisfaction with one's self or life.

Some more advanced spiritualities try to trick the slightly less ignorant masses into thinking that they are well founded by using false science, false claims, assigning meaningless tasks to give the illusion of affirmative action, and by appealing to the large number of followers they've amassed.
You can't change the world, you can only change yourself.

Thinking positive thoughts will magically transform your world into a better place.

Your life is only worth anything if you live for God.

Your life is only worth anything if you live for yourself.

Join our team and you can safely ride the coattails of our spirituality to victory, redemption, moral fulfillment, and satisfaction with yourself and your life.

Take our word for it. So many people already have.

Our people did the research so you don't have to.

The last refuge of a failed human. Just another way to distract yourself from what you really are: NOTHING.

People say life is meaningless and without purpose, but I don't care, I have spirituality and I believe in Mother Goose.

I pity the nihilists for their lack of logic and spirituality, suckers! Okay Dave, lets go to that meeting where they are going to pass around the kool-aid. What is the group called again? Heaven's Door? Heaven's Backdoor? Heaven's... something... Don't forget the black sweat suits and our purple tennis shoes. Why do they call it a "pact" Dave? And what's a cult? Ah, fuck it, it's spirituality, we don't need to question it.

1. spirituality is dark and brooding, and does not fit a stereotyp. you can be nice and spiritual or be a mean asshole. spirituality is knowing yourself and your inner definity. the christal weilding freaks and so called lambs of god are not spiritual.

there are different kinds of spirituality but most kinds centre around nature, sex and darkness. someone who is a prude is not spiritual, someone who destroys nature is not spiritual. and how old are you until you lose that fear of the dark?

spirituality can be the jazz of john coltrane or the metal of marilyn manson, the smashing pumpkins or dead can dance.

i think that both satanism and wicca are spiritual. i think you can be a atheist and be spiritual. a christian or buddist, though such religions are designed to keep you from evolving. spirituality is about being openminded and conguering your fears.
