What is Religion?

Is religion simply a matter of belief, or a system of beliefs, a body of doctrines or ideals we may aspire to, uphold and even defend, but commonly having little to do with what we make our day-to-day life about?  Can we escape the fact of religion, or does whatever we actually do make day-to-day life about a religious act? From that perspective then, being irreligious, non-theistic, even nihilistic would be religion nonetheless, being points on the spectrum of ways by which we may choose to know ourselves, either in relationship with or attempted isolation from the all.

The What is Religion articles delve into these questions and more, drawing from what is innermost for our authors, to relate our own personal journeys and realisations on the path of return that is the essence of religion. And most certainly our learned wisdom is that to not walk the path is nevertheless religion. Then as our paths have merged, the Ageless Wisdom, in its current expression The Way of The Livingness, is the unfolding of Integrative Religion and the fact of human life as inescapable of religion itself and relationship with the all.
