I agree with that statement completely. Because it doesn't suggest ou keep the unconventional religions you might jounrey into, nor does it suggest you stay in the conventional one you more or may not currently have been in. It suggests learning, gaining acceptance of other religions, and no matter what you'll probably get a bit wiser. It's not talking about what's the greatest, but what's the most spiritual..because in the end you come out even better than when you entered.

I absolutely do agree with this statement, mainly because I've done this personally. The further I ventured away from convention, the easier it was for me to connect with divinity on a level that I felt was far more complimentary than in previous points in my life. I was raised Christian, and we were always taught that we could speak directly to God, but that he was distant from us. I wanted to feel the presence of divinity in my every day life and experiences, and the only way to do that was to look at alternative belief systems and eventually discover my own way of spirituality.

No, I think the most spiritual journey is when having travelled that one, one chooses to return. Only then is the beginning of any real wisdom all the best urban

It depends on what "journey" you are talking about. The greatest spiritual journey is one with Jesus Christ. It's the most joyful, peaceful and happy one. It is full of awesome Promises and hope and abundance in life. There is nothing that can even compare to it.

I agree with that completely...and though I do follow a mix of various paths I do it in my own way and only use what I DO take from each to my standards and to match the beliefs I've had for yrs even without religion....keep in mind though that to me that statement is equivilent (in my mind) to "the most spiritual journey one can take is the journey inward to their own truth" adn the reason I say that is because ONLY when you have met your core being will you really know "the truth" so to speak...once you get deep into your own core all outside influences become nil and void....Make sense? (might not cause I'm really hungry right now..but I cant seem to pull myself away LOL actually I just dont knwo what the hell I want to eat)

No I do not agree for two reasons. First it is a generalization, there may be people for which your statment is true, and those who find this "most spiritual journey" inside religion. Second, there are people that don't need this "most spiritual journey", whatever it is, at all.
