Where Did spirituality come from ?

My question means that who brought spirituality to earth , I mean which religion ?
I see now a days christian calling themselves spiritual and so do muslims...
can these two faiths ever have spirituality in them ?

Note: These 2 are mere questions of discussion not debates.

Thanks

According to mainstream archeology, the oldest forms of religious worship are Goddess, Moon and Serpent - worship. We also think that Neanderthals were Matriarchal moon-worshippers. This is most probably the oldest form of religion and its remnants are Shaivism and Shaktism in India, as well as Tantra in general. They all relate to the Kundalini serpent and the Goddess. They all predate Christianity and Islam by tens of thousands of years.

I suppose the answer to this depends a lot on what one understands spirituality to mean. I don't see it as something that was brought in by a religion, but rather something innate to being a human being. Perhaps in some form, in other animals too, but that is beyond my understanding.
I think when one is aware of one's existence, and can comprehend it in the abstract, and is aware of ones own eventual mortality, then spirituality becomes natural.

I am. What does that mean? Will I always be? Is there any purpose and meaning to my existence?

Religions often try to provide answers to these questions, and reassurance to the questioner. But they are a result of the questions and spiritual seeking, not the originators of it.

I don't think spirituality has anything to do with religion and I don't think religions exclude spirituality. As for where it came from, we are humans, we think of things, we notice that there is an underlying something outside of our senses and maybe we need to label that.

Once upon a time, there was a group of proto hominids...hunter gatherers out looking for their daily repast.

Not finding much, they stumbled upon a patch of unusual blue fungi and thought "hmm...I wonder if this is edible?" So they took it back to their caves and proceeded to consume it.

Not long thereafter, cave paintings, language and spirituality was born.

Spirituality 'IS' it is it's own reason for being. The historical drama of development, the rise and fall of civilisations, the development of tools etc. etc. as much of this as you believe, is just that, A Drama, a Creation as the Christians like to call it. Spirituality is the unconditioned, the unborn, the undying, God .. the drama of life exists within the unconditioned, the unconditioned exists within the drama of life. The Buddhist phrase 'Form is only emptiness, emptiness only Form' alludes to this.

To get back to your original question, Where does spirituality come from ? It doesn't come from anywhere in the ordinary sense of the word but is everywhere. Perhaps it reveals itself as the world proceeds ? It is an uncovering and a falling away rather than an acquisition, although various saints. mystics and practitioners of all faiths and traditions have made great efforts to know God. So it is an acquisition in that sense. That great efforts were made and results were had. Will spirit reveal itself so much that the whole world will become enlightened ? Interesting question and I think this is the question behind your question. Will the Biblical revelations prove to be true and the world destroy itself ? Or will facebook bring us closer to world unity and peace etc. ? interesting thanks for the opportunity to air a few views.

There are many Creation stories.
In many, man was different than you see today. He did not need a religion to point to His Creators. He was in union with them.

As far as Christians or Muslims, what do you care?

All is and has a spirit and is worthy of seeing the spiritual side of All.

Christians and Muslims are just as spiritual as anyone else.

Well, I am just riding on the coattails of one Terrence McKenna...the revelation ain't mine.

Spirituality comes from within oneself. The recognition one is spirit, and starts living through it.
