To be conscious and aware of our actions is a worthwhile aspiration. Most human beings develop consciousness through trial and error. Hopefully. Going to church seems to be, for many, similar to an insurance policy for the soul. If they go to church their soul is covered.
So, the soul belongs to the church or other spiritual community.The body to the doctor, insurance company and government. Money to the bank, broker and government. The schools are responsible for children being disciplined and educated. In many instances none of these institutions encourage building personal responsibility, even if they say they do.
It is very much the same in the Yoga Community. People who teach yoga are very often not as evolved as people might like to imagine. This is true on every level of yoga leadership. Different kinds of yoga practices thumb their nose at others. Kind of crazily antithetical to the meaning of yoga, which is union.
Unfortunately, there is a feeling of superiority that many organizations create among their ranks. There is much good done by many of them, despite their arrogance. Separation is not inclusion and most religions do not seem to be about unity. Maybe on paper, but not in action.
In the end, or what seems like the end, we are all responsible for our own body and spirit. Most religions give a spoken or unspoken body soul guarantee. Catholic confession is one aspect of that idea.
The Interfaith Ministry in NYC link here is a spiritual and religious door that is open to creating unity, and open minded change. There are others, but this is one I am somewhat familiar with and grateful to have known.
