Alex, thanks for your message. Since you asked :), my nascent view of spirituality is that -

there is a divine being in our universe
that we have a direct connection with this divine being
that this being is made of the same molecules as the rest of us are,
and that those molecules are made of energy. That's where there is a hitch, because I don't understand quantum physics. I may have made a giant, impossible leap on that one;
since we are all made of the same energy (there aren't different flavours of energy, it just is), then we are by definition at one with our divine being.
Benevolence, punishment, acceptance; it is all part of who we are, because we are our own collective, divine being. It is we who punish, we who are forgiving. Whatever we do reflects our connection with this divine being.
I believe that by treating our bodies, our neighbours, and our planet in a nuturing way, that we are declaring our faith in our divine being.
No churches are needed. No written text. I just made this stuff up from the bits and pieces I've picked up so far in my life.

ok, now throw me to the lions.
