Prompted by the question “What’s your spiritual affiliation?” my response;
Affiliation, any affiliation, is against the nature of true spirit. Affiliation is a division, spirit is oneness. An affiliation is a belonging to something, true spirit belongs to itself. The desire to belong to something stems from the need for a security outside of one’s self, true spirit is secure in itself.
But be aware that the aura that surrounds someone that is secure in his spirit can be perceived as a threat to someone that lacks a sense of internal peace. Rather than their own insecurity being perceived as the threat, they will target the spiritual person as the threat and may apply some form of attack.
