I've heard lots of people say that if you're an atheist, you're not spiritual. I think that people wrongly confuse spirituality with religion. Spiritualism, to me at least, is nothing more than feeling connected with the things around you. Getting in tune with nature, as it were. We all need that feeling of connection with the things around us. Isn't that kinda what the hippie movement was about? Love and peace and connection? Tree hugging? They, I think, rejected the mainstream of spiritualism and made it their own, albeit with lots of drugs as a catalyst. You only have to listen to Neil DeGrasse Tyson talk about the universe to feel the wonder it holds. The fact that we are "star stuff" brings me a great deal of joy. Buddhism is just a spiritual philosophy, not a religious one, I think.
