completely agree with that statement. Even if there such a thing as a persons spiritUnfortunately, in modern world, it has gotten all sorts of pseudoscientific connotations in areas that are completely wrong and nonsensical.
Oh. I was referring to the term "spiritual" without any connections to the supernatural, spirits, psychic or in any other sort of random pseduoscientific sense.completely agree with that statement. Even if there such a thing as a persons spirit
(whatever that may be, i'm still a bit mystified about what exactly a spirit is) the amount of con-men out there trying to make moeny out of people by claiming they are psychic, or they have a sort of spiritul connection, is staggering, making it hard to test in any way.
I think that your spirit is every aspect of you that is intangible. Such as your good aspects, your bad, your love, these are all things that are not physical in any sense, but they affect the world through us in a very real way.
No, no, spiritual is what i meant. Forget all of the psychic's and cranks, i shouldn't have mentioned them, i did mean spiritual, not a 'spirit', as such.Oh. I was referring to the term "spiritual" without any connections to the supernatural, spirits, psychic or in any other sort of random pseduoscientific sense.
(Ivan Seeking, this was sort of what I meant; this is the sort of things that comes to most peoples minds when they hear the term "spirituality").
