“I’m not religious. But I’m a spiritual person. Very spiritual. I’m not into organized religion.”

Can’t think of a claim I’ve heard more often in my interviews with filmmakers, actors, and artists.

I’ve always wondered, if you reject any kind of organization of your spiritual convictions, if you don’t have any kind of shape or definition to what you believe, what is your spirituality made of? Of what use is it? And if you believe spirituality is arbitrary, and that we feel a need to agree on anything fundamentals about good, evil, God, and morality, are we then stuck in suspicion of any group of people that affirms the same basic convictions?

Here’s Jason Morehead exploring these questions in response to a post by Eric Tonjes:

Should we be spiritual?

Religious?

Neither?

Both?
