Cancer and Psersonal Spiritual Realism

Majid Ali, M.D.

An individual with cancer has special needs for support. Such support can come from different sources. Spirituality is one of those sources.

I coined the term “Personal Spiritual Realism” for a brand of spiritualism that focuses on the “personhood” of the individual seeking spirituality, as well as the sense of realism of that individualism.

I use the term “inherited spirituality” for those who prefer a concept of spirituality of their elders.

I coined the term “Cookie-cutter Spirituality” to express my respect for people who adopt the brand of spirituality of some charismatic guru.
