Another thought on this post is, you sure have a lot of unanswered questions for others. What are youur answers to these same questions?
If you claim, that these are for our benefit [Self], why even be a partcipant in religion if your spirituality is restricted?
You don't limit "God", do you, like Christianity has done?
If you would like calrification of the question, then don't be shy or frustrated without responding, ask for clarity.
That is why it makes no sense to you, because you seem to refuse to follow-up on what it does mean.
"Why be a participant in religion if your spirituality is restricted?"
Firstly, Catholicism is not a "religion" in so far as it was not man who came up with it, it was God. One doesn't "participate" in Catholicism, one participates in a relationship with God. Catholicism teaches the way to have a healthy relationship with Him. Catholicism is not one religion among many, each "just as good" as the next.
Secondly, if you are trying to say that Catholicism restricts people's spirituality, all I can say is that you are wrong, or at least that your idea of non-restricted spirituality is very different than mine.
Come to think of it, describe what you think/feel is unrestricted spirituality. I'm curious.
