Poll: Are you Spiritual?
    #11211142 - 10/08/09 11:25 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

I got the idea for this poll in the Guru thread. Someone made the point that as you get older, you lose this sense of believing. I'm curious if there is a correlation between age and having some form of faith.
Do you have some sense of Spirituality?
You may choose only one
Yes, Age -18-22
Yes, Age 23-27
Yes, Age 28-34
Yes, Age 35-40
Yes, Age 40+
No, Age -18-22
No, Age 23-27
No, Age 28-34
No, Age 35-40
No, Age 40+

I am 47 and I developed my pro-spiritual beliefs 10 years ago. I never really cared about spirituality before.

That's very interesting, and opposite what I would have thought (My theory was people would never find spirituality if they didn't in their 20s). I'm 21 and was a Atheist up until about age 19/20. Nowadays my reality is a lot more interesting. I think Buddhism, specifically Tibetan Mysticism, is the closest to the "truth". Although I gravitate to a lot of "New Age stuff", such as ETs and channeling, dreams and other divination, and astral projection (induced OBEs) and entheogens.

Is spirituality synonymous with faith? I'm not sure what you mean by 'spiritual.'

It doesn't have to be. I didn't mean for faith to have an religious connotations either. Do you believe there is some underlying structure to the Universe, or are we just accidents here trying to cope with ourselves?

The answer is unknowable and clinging to one view point or the other does not effect your daily life nor how you treat others.

Yes, age 18-22.
Within the last 3 years, yes.

Well, I don't have reason to believe in deities, 'architects,' or angels; but there seems to be much more to the Universe than we're able to understand ATM.

I believe that life is priceless and every moment is a gift we didn't ask for :smile:

Whenever someone presents an idea, I test it at the limits with a hypothetical to see if it still holds up as a universal. Has nothing to do with my mood.

I think a big trick to life is being positive. No one's life is perfect, but if you approach everything more positive, the positivity will come into your life. It's called the Law of Attraction.

Of course, your post had nothing to do with my method of inquiry nor is there any such 'Law'. 0 for 2.

Nope it's a real Law. You should try it out, seriously! Next time you stub your toe, laugh about it! The pain goes away so quick. :cool:

I'm asking you to put aside your "method of inquiry" and experience something directly.

Coherency, cogency and consistency are benchmarks of an ordered mind.

Doublespeak, babbling, and meandering all over are signs of an undisicplined mind and poor thinking/communication skills.

Which type of posts do you think should earn the most points?
