Create religion anew rather than being a follower

Tom Rapsas continues his appreciation of Thomas Moore's new book, A Religion of One’s Own: A Guide to Creating a Personal Spirituality in a Secular World, in his post "Moving away from formal religion — toward a one-to-one relationship with God". Rapsas writes, "One person who knows where the spiritual-but-not-religious (SBNR) are coming from is Care of the Soul author Thomas Moore. He has written a groundbreaking new book that gives valuable instruction on how we can create and enrich our own spiritual practice."

Sprinkled with quotes from Moore's book, Rapsas shares, "The fact is, with the right intention, virtually every daily activity can be seen as a way to connect with the Divine. Moore even mentions one of my favorite soul-enriching activities: sipping a cup of coffee in the early morning hours, in quiet contemplation. The potential activities that can help you experience this connection are as endless as your imagination."

Also read Rapsas' earlier piece "The Soul Whisperer: Thomas Moore and the care and understanding of our souls".
