The spiritual life of any person is the path that a person chooses to follow in response to the God within.

what is your response?

it depends what you mean by god because one person may believe in something inside themselves but not call it god, while another person might do. i dont like to confine the word spirit to god. its a lot more than that.

So you're saying that Buddhists cannot be spiritual, then (since they believe in a "path" and not a supreme deity?)

Perhaps you'd find it enlightening to talk to some Buddhist monks, then.

SPIRIT-ual life: drinking nothing but cognac and single-malt!
You should try it: a proven anti-drivellant.

..... try defining "spirit" - so we know what in the name of all the saints "spiritual" might mean, and if you have any strength left try "life" since a billion people or more believe we have more than one -and the rest don't.

..what is this Latin nonsense -which in any case would be far better as intellEgunt?
- as ever the Estragon ' I may not know any living languages any longer; but try me on the dead ones' challenge still stands -
"They condemn what they do not understand"??
You must be cursing all day.

estragon, hey i didnt make up the language

yes, every day.
Byrd didnt say who he was referring to.if me, then yes i do find buddists spiritual, this is what i mean when i say that they dont call it god. they have a path, like you said. i dont believe in what people call god but my own ideas. i still find myself spiritual, though i dont worship a deity.
define spirit? thats like being asked to define a feeling- you could go on forever.

why do you challenge those who want to believe in God being part of our spiritual just because you have never had a spiritual beginning. Love those who's ignorance is shadowing their own growth.
