I used to belong to a traditional religion which had very specific beliefs. Then I began to move along a more spiritual non-religious path. At first, I was frightened to share my beliefs with others. I was not only afraid of their reactions, but I guess on some level I still felt I would go to hell for my beliefs. (These were remnants from my previous religion.
Now I have grown to the point where I gladly share my spiritual beliefs with others. It is pretty hard for me to hide my spiritual life since I am a minister. When people ask me what type of minister I am, I explain it in terms they can understand. They usually agree and tell me what their beliefs are.
I have come across people (mostly on the web), where I was told that I would go to hell because I did not believe in a specific religion. (Some people can really get bent out of shape over the topic.) That is when I calmly let them know that Spirit is love and there are many paths to Spirit. I usually don't hear from them after that.
