“When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! – John 19:26

Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy Mother! And from that hour the disciple took her unto her own” – John 19:27

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother Mary, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Dear woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into her home.

Sounds odd, but when I say that we feel really proud of an accident which happened in our lives, it is perhaps as closest to the universal truth as it could be. We feel so proud that we become religiously wedded to it.

How religious do we become when it comes to adopting an accident. The accident of being born into a particular religion is what I mean.

Spirituality and religion are quite often than not, confused with each other and if not, many times seen as a couple, as if one can’t have one without the other. It is assumed that one needs to be religious to be spiritual and vice-versa.

The truth is that spirituality and religion can surely intertwine and coexist in our lives, but they can also be distinct and detached.
