“A key reason that organized religion remains popular is that each one offers established doctrines and rules to simplify followers’ lives. They are then relieved of the responsibility to personally evaluate and contemplate the nature and/or origins of their own existence. However, as Socrates once said, “The unexamined life is not worth living,” and therefore it is important to recognize that books like the Bible, Koran, Kabbalah, and others, could, in effect, be collections of stories that may or may not be completely true. There is inherent value within such texts, but it is up to you to discern what information “feels” right to you in the process of developing your own personal spiritual philosophy.”
