Let’s talk about spirituality a little bit. But wait a minute, what is spiritual. What does it mean to be spiritual. Obviously, in the word spiritual, we find the word spirit. So we may then infer spiritual to mean “of the spirit”.
But what is the spirit, and where can we find it? To this question, there are many many many answers. Depending on who you are, what you believe in, and most importantly what you experience.
We have a slight idea that spirit as a thing is more or less in the same category as the body. While we can see, feel and touch the body, we cannot do so of the spirit. Basically, we categorise bodies, to be of two kinds; “animate” or “inanimate” objects. We also know that the is spirit related to the body, but of what relationship we cannot tell for certain.
We know the relationship between the food we eat, the air we breathe, the blood that runs our veins and the body that carries us, but we do not know for certain, the relationship between the so called “spirit” and animate bodies.
Now, we go to church, mosque, temples, and shrines. We pray, chant, meditate, and trance. We attach a certain kind of mysticism to spirituality. We revere priests, monks, pastors, imams, yogis, rabbis and look up to them as some sort of demigods. But what if the spirit is as simple as the water we drink everyday.
Wait a minute, why is the spirit so important that we are so fervently in search of if, that we invent thousands of religions, and countless of saints. Is it because it promises us of life after death? Or because with it, we feel we could transcend the laws of physics that the body feels trapped within. Or do we feel trapped in the mysteries of life?
This is what I think.
According to the principle of relativity, everything is in constant motion. Both “animate” and “inanimate”, which means, everything is technically “animate” depending on the observer. And if the spirit is what we think makes inanimate objects animate, that means, everything has (or is) a spirit!
So therefore, the spirit is in everybody, and all we have to do is to be still and feel the motion within. Simple.
Now this is a fundamental truth of which I am very convinced. The problem, however is in the ethics. Some label certain kinds of spirits as evil and others as good. That to me is all BS politics, of which I have no interest (at least for now).
I hope I have been able to shed light on the topic of spirituality. I am sure a lot of people disagree with my views here. If you do, please understand that words are ambiguous, and are nothing but references to reality (or truth). Therefore, I am willing to take in your views.
