Anything and Everything is Spiritual
    #2985868 - 08/10/04 02:32 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I think that 99% of people who claim to be spiritual are too serious and uptight. Some of them need to understand that no matter what you believe you are not 100% sure on it and its kinda like we are all fools existing together. We can atleast laugh, smile, and enjoy life more. Many believe to eliminate desires; if you eliminate all desires including material desire, you are a colorless person in my perspective. I like to deflate my material desires by wanting necessity. I don't wanna die and i don't wanna live unhappy.

Well, you dont have to be anything. If you dont wanna die or be unhappy, then your gonna have a very hard time reguardless of what you beleive in because life is rough and your gonna die, your loved ones are gonna die.

Well I think you misinterpreted what i wrote because i am stupid. When i had the inclination of dieing it was related to the necessities to live. Dieing saddens me even though i understand that it is the inevitable and grieving is a waste of time.

Well, all the pain you feel. Whether its hatred, manipulation, lying, is your own doing. (Is all of our own doing). It comes from our own hearts and own minds, out of our own confusion that we think that theres a way to live without any pain and dissatisfaction.

I wonder how many people even know what spirituality is. When I hear Britney Spears talk about spirituality like some kind of generic term for "Girl Power" it seems a little silly. So many people talk about spirituality, but how many have even had a spiritual experience?

i always sort of thought that religiousness was the opposite of spirituality. Religion divides the world into a dichotomy, the good and the bad, the pure and impure, the holy and crass. Spirituality on the other hand is about the exploration of life and its beutifull mysteries, it is about realizing that the 'gross' and the 'base' are infused with the spirit, and thus everything is divine.

According to me

I am a spiritual being having a human experience.

The human experience is the entire spectrum.

It's either everything is spiritual or the concepts behind "spiritual" stuff is all just physical.

Eventually Ghosts, Psi, ESP and possibly God are all going to be understood scientifically someday. It will simply come to that point that "spirituality" and science once again meet. It will happen naturally, so I'm not worried about it.

What I am worried about is people talking out thier ass thinking they know something when the information they believe in is just shit they've been told. Fuck that. It just hampers progress.

An example is the Idea of heaven; It simply doesn't exsist the way the Bible describes it. Anyone who has seen a ghost knows that (some) spirits stay attached to Earth (for a period of time at least).

I told my mother I saw my dead step, John's ghost and she told me it was completely unbiblical and assured me (with intensity and furvor) that John was a Christian and in heaven.

I was thinking to myself, you aren't the person who had the experiance and I wasn't alone in sencing the spirit. How the hell can you tell me what is real and fake. A little fragment of insight into the afterlife is ignored once again into obscurity.
