to me its my non-material life.

"Gently return to the simple physical sensation of the breath. Then do it again, and again, and again. Somewhere in this process, you will come face-to-face with the sudden and shocking realization that you are completely crazy. Your mind is a shrieking, gibbering madhouse on wheels." - ven. henepola gunaratana

To me, spirituality is a way of life... spirituality is learning how to embrace the experience we've been given, and striving to make the best of it.

For me, it's wondering why we're here, and for what purpose, if any. I suppose it's looking for answers to the big questions, in a nutshell....

reflection upon that which transcends matter:

the spiritual is a higher order of organization than can be described as blobs and bits of matter alone.

matter is like the disk drives, proccessor and powersupply of a computer, while spirit is the inspiration to appreciate some internet posting or a movie playing on that computer and the inspiration to write the screen play, or some political manifesto, and to carry the idea through - all the way back to matter and meaning.

spiritual organization (i don't mean churches etc, but the organization of thought and resonance - meaning) is so elaborate as to practically defy it's connection to matter; but spirituality is the very transcending of matter by that matter itself, the reaching beyond, and the returning to care for its roots.

Remembering more and more about the way I saw the world when I was born.  Forgetting the lies adults told me about the world being small and plain and unmagical.  Believing, not just suspecting, that we are much more than we seem.  Waking up each day filled with love and hope and wonder.

BLISS!  :heartpump:

Are you answering the question or just complaining?

Yes, I am aware that it is allowed.  :wink:
I was wondering what his views on spirituality were, beyond sarcastic sighing about other people's clearly expressed spiritual beliefs.
