I am spiritual but not religious.Author and public speaker Deepak Chopra explains it like this:
"Religion is belief in someone else's experience. Spirituality is having your own experience." (source)

And on that note, allow me to make a few points highlighting the difference between one who is spiritual and one who is religious.
