  1. Personally I feel more connected to the mystical, the unseen but felt, an innate symbiosis with a universal energy. In my view, religion is the anthropomorphism of universal energies/mysticism. I find greater resonance and spiritual alignment with syncretism over any organised religion. Each to their own, and as I do not personally subscribe to a particular faith, does not mean I won’t entertain any of their teachings, I just don’t take it as literal. We are all students on the road to enlightenment, absorb all you can from the many sources we have access to (including your internal self).
