EXCERPT From the Book: Timothy Wyllie
Question: Is there a difference between religion and spirituality?
Timothy Wyllie: Oh absolutely yes. All religion is socialized spirituality, it’s a lot of people who are basically religious bureaucrats who seek to control and feast off the vulnerability of their followers, because their is something called the worship circuit, we do desire something bigger than ourselves, there is something deep inside us which wants or desires something larger than ourselves, and to cut ourselves off from that is really madness and sterility.
