I described myself as spiritual not religious for about eight years after I left a religious community (I spent 14 years in a Sikh ashram) and before I became an Episcopalian Christian. An important part of the religous/spiritual dichotomy has to do with one's involvement in a community of faith. After 40 years 'on the path' I've concluded that while parts of the journey must be taken alone, the journey of the spirit is ultimately social. If your experience of the divine does not have a social manifestation, I think you've not yet grasped the meaning of incarnation.
