Religion defined: a set of beliefs concerning the nature, and purpose of the universe, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs (editing, mine.) Could I, would I gain anything by making my own devotional practices which are taken from several different religious texts? I have the luxury of being a loner in this quest, ie, I don't have to conform or share or ask anyone. It might spur some learning, some appreciation and gratitude. It might lend me "new eyes" from which to observe this grand life. Why not?
