4 Spirituality books you should read

4 must-read books on Spirituality

There are various arguments about spirituality and religion being the same. Although both are the way to connect with the divine, they are hugely apart from each other. In simple terms, religion is an organization or institution with a certain set of rules and beliefs and having its own set culture.

While spirituality is more on the freedom to choose and just connect with the divine. 
Spirituality can be achieved in fractions of minutes for some individuals while it takes months and years for other individuals to reach the same level of spirituality.

In the simple sense, spirituality and the path of spirituality can be different for every individual, and the path of spirituality is unique to each person.

Having a spiritual connection can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. But in simple terms, it is having inner peace and contentment from within by losing all the negative emotions such as ego, and anger. Although your own life is unique to you and will always remain that way.

But most spiritual books focus on the terms that we all are one and children of the divine. 
So if spirituality interests you and you are into reading spiritual books, then this segment can surely help you with adding new books or refreshing the old ones.
