philosophy for the curious soul 



Spirituality as it is known here reveals the presence of oneself, being authentic and fully uninfluenced by any person, event, or other variable. It is one's connection and experience with the divine, sometimes via a sacred experience. The idea encompasses a reality apart from physical or mental awareness. It is a pure awareness of one's inmost being, commonly called the soul or spirit. The soul is part of the spiritual body, similar to the physical body. 

Spirituality is to be distinct from religion. Spirituality is the practice of connecting with that which is divine, sacred, transcendent, or mystical. When a group of people have the same or similar experiences, this is called religion. Religions practice rituals and traditions which serve to remember spiritual beings and experiences. Spirituality here recognizes the perspective of one's individual experiences in connection with that which belongs to a different dimension.

Active spirituality encompasses the birth and cultivation of love, forgiveness, kindness, contentment, passion, compassion, gratitude, and peace. Existential spirituality encompasses the lightness and solitude of being, authenticity in the most natural, restful state, and awareness of the "I AM" phenomenon.

Physics of Spiritual Reality

                This topic came about by participating in a local spiritual discussion group. Some members shared their experience(s) of encounters with spiritual presences. Intrigued by how human psychology interacted with this physical spiritual dimension, I began to ask some questions to figure out if mental psychology has much to do with how we physically interpret a spiritual dimension. …
