Religion and spirituality

Religion is a cultural phenomenon whilst spirituality is a personal matter. A person doesn't need religion to think that life is meaningful or even "divine". Neither can the concept of God, or a transcendent Good, be owned by any one religion. I also think it's possible to love many of the prophets and follow their teachings, where they exhibit wisdom, without aligning to any one particular religion. I don't think it needs to be an either/or, or divisive in any way, as many religions have made out. That is the human ego at play. Creation is one and so wisdom should also point to this unity.
