On this week’s BananaOnFire, I give you a tour around my altar at home. It used to be my favorite place in the house and I thought things I placed on there symbolized what being spiritual was all about. I couldn’t be more wrong.

When we identify with the rituals, the tools, the belief system of our spirituality too much, it becomes another form of materialism. When we’re so attached to a spiritual identity, inevitably we divide people into being spiritual and non-spiritual, Harry Potters and muggles. That only results in more divides in a world already full of divides and conflicts…
