Religion and spirituality need to work. That is an
absolute. There are some people who might follow a religion
even if it didn't accomplish anything and there are others who
would not follow any religious or spiritual path even if it would
guarantee to make them rich, but most of us want religion and
spirituality to work. And that means more than Pollyanna-style
appreciation of flowers and butterflies or thoughts of someone
watching to keep score on our sins.
It begins with an active spiritual life, and it will grow. Your spiritual life is your own, and more personal even than your underwear. And nobody gets to mess with it!
Equally important is to be able to recognize the results, and give appropriate thanks for them. Some might not be as obvious as others, but you can learn how to see them!
