On I'm a Fan of MHeister: 95 fans

Spirituality without religion can become a self-centered complacency divorced from the wisdom of a community.

That's what I'm warning against.

From the Baha'i Writings: "Love Me (God), that I may love thee. If thou lovest Me not, My love can in know wise reach thee."
