Episode 52: The team of Colt and Stransky investigate the meaning of the fifth key in the book Ani Colt authored: Self Love as Spiritual Practice, 9 Keys to Loving Yourself.
At about 26 minutes in, Ani talks about “Spiritual v Religious”. There is a recent article printed in VOX about a poll to try and get a handle on this issue.
Here is an excerpt from that article:
“Yet, each of the people I spoke to agree that spirituality, in some sense, is beneficial to them, even if they see that spirituality as opposed to organized religion. Their anecdotal evidence bears out another element of the PRRI study: Spiritual people are, generally, happier, than nonspiritual people. According to the study, 61 percent of spiritual but not religious people and 70 percent of spiritual and religious people reported being “very” or “completely” satisfied with their life, compared to just 53 percent of those who were religious but not spiritual, and 47 percent of those who were neither.”Support the show
