What is Spirituality?
Spirituality is that which follows the pure spiritual experience.
What is the pure spiritual experience?
It is the immersive sense of the presence behind all life.
The sense, the all-consuming feeling, is complete—-it brings recognition of how much one reveres life and loves life. It comes with awe, as it dissolves the barrier of mind.
The experience is not a path, a ritual, a moral framework for living in society. These are individual choices derived from collective choices that we assign to life after the fact.
The presence, which I call God, is impersonal and empty, yet personable—-for we are in the presence, during the present. We are not separate from the presence during the experience. The presence is alive.
