I define spirituality as an awareness of some other more immense consciousness outside of us or an intuition of a will/volition that works for our benefit akin to Dr. Dwyer’s ‘Source’. :!!)
this last part is very interesting, in that is eludes, directly, to the meaning of "spirituality", i think.A word commonly used to translate the Hegelian term gGeist (also translated as mind). According to Hegel, spirit differs from Nature in that it is an 'I'; in Hegel's language, spirit has being 'for itself' (Encyclopaedia, par. 381, Addition). Hegel recognizes three types of spirit: subjective, objective, and absolute. The philosophy of subjective spirit studies the individual in abstraction from his social reactions, and discusses such topics as consciousness, memory, thought, and will--topics that are covered by what is commonly called 'the philosophy of mind'. The philosophy of objective spirit deals with a man's relations to his fellow men; the fundamental concept here is that of 'right' (Recht), a term having both a legal and a moral sense. This part of Hegel's philosophy includes his ethics and his political theory. The highest stage of spirit is absolute spirit, whose three parts are art, religion, and philosophy. According to Hegel, the study of absolute spirit has to do with spirit as 'infinite', by which he means, not spirit as something boundless, but as having returned to itself from self-estrangement. This is to say that, at this stage of thought, one recognizes that subjective and objective are one; in other words, one has grasped a basic principle of Hegel's idealism.
Some astronauts have claimed to have had spiritual experiences when viewing the earth from the moon or in orbit. Sometimes it takes a different perspective to become aware of the miracle of consciousness.Amp1 said:I define spirituality as an awareness of some other more immense consciousness outside of us or an intuition of a will/volition that works for our benefit akin to Dr. Dwyer’s ‘Source’. :!!)
