<quoted text>This is absolutely brilliant. Thanks, Mr I.
Many of us who see spirituality differently see it as a property of mind. To understand anything, you need to use your brain. When you understand that the brain is the most powerful thing in the universe, you begin to understand a spiritual universe. My spiritual universe is mine alone, just as everyone else's is. No spiritual belief is universal. That is proven by the fact that every single theist has a slightly different take on their religion and by the fact that there are 38,000 sects of Christianity.
NO ONE has the same beliefs as any other person on earth for it is based on ones experience, culture, upbringing and education or lack thereof.
Thank you very much for your kind words!

Nevertheless I might see “spirituality” somewhat differently from you, and I tend to believe that I have had a quite good idea about the human mind for quite a while.

Almost every day I meet with people who are struggling with their “spiritual” life, and I am deeply touched and mostly out of reach when it comes to communicating helpful knowledge.

It isn’t easy to grow up and to get an emotionally balanced life, sometimes we need some help and advice and that is one of the things that concerns me.

In the US, we are brought up in a religious world. It is hard to get past that and learn to think our way though what we believe and why. The hardest part is facing yourself and asking yourself 'Why?'. Once you can answer that honestly, you're on your way.

In the US there are a multitude of sects, many of them came because a hard climate for them in Europe.
And they have had the ability to evolve and adjust into modern society and lifestyle without having to cope with the wars and socialist movements and changes of the European countries.
The more typical thing about the religious life in the US is the evangelists and their hypnotic suggestion TV shows.
In Europe there are the more secular countries like France, Czechia, Scandinavia and Germany; here you might find the more liberal thinking when it comes to religious belief.
Then we are about the big question; is it possible to live a complete, happy, high moral standard life without religious faith?
The answer is without doubt; yes it is!

God exists in your minds only. Back to life....back to reality. If you want to live in
La la land....and live a lie...noone is trying to stop you. I like to face facts...face the
Truth...i dont need the crutch of religion to get through life. Religion is the cause
Of most of the wars, the world would be better off without it.

I agree with you. But I would like to add that meditation on life can add a great deal of peace and understanding. It's simply a method of being 'spiritual' that involves no Gods or Goddesses, but the mind only. When you quiet the mind and stop worrying yourself with everyday things, answers to your problems in life will come to you. Then you have to act on those answers instead of waiting around for some invisible friend to do it for you.

I love the Eastern saying,'Pray with your feet moving'. That's pretty much what meditation is.

Nicely put. I think there's plenty that the non-religious can pick up from religion while leaving the BS behind.

Then, what do you think; did God create first the tree or was it the seed?
Or did he create first the egg or the hen?
Do you think that complexity came before simplicity?
The question is important for our understanding, and then what can you get from the Bible?

Ok, I know that this question will remain unanswered, but still; If God created everything from nothing, then what about God, from where did God come?

At least that is something that I could see as a compromise; that everything there is originated from the flows of energy within the universe itself.
That the simple things at the beginning grew into more and more complexity up to what we can see now, in an ever lasting process towards something new; in short terms what we know as evolution, a process still going on.
But the God of the Bible does not quite fit into that frame; to me this God is too human like, not a God of all creation, only for the few humans who believes in certain criteria.

How did HE begin? How do you know it's only a HE? The bible says 'male and female created we them in our image'. That's pretty clear unless you've been indoctrinated to say HE.
