This is the allure of religion and the satisfaction of us having a deity as a sovereign. Yet is it real? Well I for one see another way to think about living my life with a sovereign. Not that I need one but for the fact that I am a spiritual person I would hope that the spiritualism has a connection to something. That something for me is all that exists in the dimension I inhabit. Somewhat like the native American Indian, I see my connection to a sovereign as being the Universe, including all of nature that we live within and without. The known and the unknown is my sovereign and it exists in all the Universe. I am a part of the Universe both biologically and spiritually. While I am alive I am made up of particles that exist in nature. When I die I am made up in particles found in the Universe. The connection is real and not debatable.
As opposed to religion where the tie is dubious and fantastic at times. So you won't see me praying to a god or hoping to go to a heaven, on the contrary, you will see me trying to shape the Universe with a bent toward good and intelligent, while knowing that when I die I get to go back into the pool of particles that makes up all things. From whence I came to whence I return. That is the spirituality of my essence and if anything it drives me to improve the makeup of what I now exist as. The Universe is my sovereign and if anything keeps me in control of myself it is this self awareness. I truly am the master of my being for the time that I exist as a life. I will shape who I am by being who I am without the delusion of sacrificing myself on the altar of any religion.
