Episode 63: STRONG BO$$ BITCHES The Difference Between Religion and Spirituality

LISTEN HERE






Welcome to the last episode in this series, Strong Boss Bitches with Monica Morton, a private detective, crime expert for a true crime TV series, and a life coach. Over the past several weeks, we’ve been talking about how to be your best and baddest strong boss bitch self.


To close out this series, we’re talking about religion and spirituality. We’re questioning why so many people who practice religious doctrine are not also practicing kindness and love. We’re calling out those who use the Bible to pick and choose how they inflict judgment upon others.


Ask yourself some tough questions: Do you practice religion for yourself or to judge others? Do you use religious doctrine as a way to practice hate?


Too much trust in a religious institution can make you second guess your intuition. If you’re so busy practicing religious protocol that you’ve lost a sense of love and compassion for humanity, it’s important to find your spiritual path. No matter whether you believe in God or the universe or another divine being, we all have spiritual gifts that we should be using to bless others.


Stop judging, and start loving.
