Our discussion last night was confirmation to me that those of us who attend the Gilbert Spirituality Meetup are, for the most part, not traditional in our belief system.
Last evening’s topic, “What does the Holiday Season Mean to You?,” traveled into the territory of organized religion –no surprise there!- and how many of us have had to shed the (sometimes) full package of what religions and cultures (familial, national) try to sell us particularly when we were just starting out in life. Coupled with life changes, such as divorce, empty nest, and relocation, we have attached our personal definitions and created new traditions to make the holiday season meaningful to us.
That is following one’s own path to Spirit. And, if the holiday season is supposed to be one of joy, peace, and love, then I’d say we are all on the right track.
