Religious Devotion

IMO...

Devotional activity is only truly devotional activity when it comes about through an absolute degree of self-motivation. Therefore, the notion that religious devotion requires the subjugation of one’s personhood and as such is an activity for sheep-like fools is basically nonsense and reflects a fundamental lack of understanding of the topic.

No individual can induce another into the “surrender” involved in religious devotion, nor can any other person induce one into a state religious devotion. This is because actual religious devotion is an activity which arises naturally in the person treading these paths, the individual being progressively more likely to arrive at such an outcome through a gradual process of religious discovery.
