Check out “Off The Beaten Track,” the blog of a British man who has left the well-trodden path of Christianity and is heading toward the wide-open spaces of spirituality.
It was nice to get an email from Paul, the OTBT’er, who has made the Church of the Churchless his blog of the week. I’m honored. Faithless hands meeting across the sea.
In the Best of Off The Beaten Track section I found “Do Not Believe,” which features some great advice from the Buddha about following your own way.
I also noted via the most recent OTBT post that Paul had taken a quiz intended to show what sort of religion you best fit in with. He and I are on very much the same wavelength, with both of us fitting into the independent “spiritual” category. After taking the quiz I was told:
Your ideals are mostly spiritual, but in an individualistic way. While spirituality is very important in your life, organized religion itself may not be for you. It is best for you to seek these things on your own terms.
Amen to that.
Just to say thanks for profiling my Blog. I too am honoured!

I took the quiz, too. I also was "classified" in the spiritual category. But the funny part to me was the fact that I took the quiz again and answered opposite of what I really would answer (looking for my antithesis?...nemesis? *shrug*) and the results of my "opposite" came up with Judea-Christian. I found that fairly amusing as I was raised J-C. Made me laugh! :D
