there are many definitions which is why I'm trying my best to be broad about it. By spirit I mean, God, consciousness, the angels, Lucifer, '___'
elves, Vishnu, Jesus, Allah, Satan, etc. whatever IT is that someone prays, meditates, sings, dances or gives thanks too.
I'm interested in the alternatives from major religions. Most Christians pray to Jesus but I'm guessing most people who are into metaphysics probably
don't.....so what do they do? I know what I do, which is what I shared, I'm curious about others....
What do you do?
Personally, I'm not quite convinced there is a traditional spirit or spirit world. I have trouble basing my metaphysical foundation on the analogies,
perspectives and hearsay of others. Since I haven't experienced anything that constitutes a spirit or a spirit world, even though I've meditated,
prayed and hoped most of my life, my judgement on the matter is suspended until I experience otherwise. I just couldn't live my life in
disappointment any more.
For the moment, the spirit world is, to me, the realm of ideas
—the place where not only God, but every ideal imaginable, can exist. I can
reach the spirit world by simply thinking and engaging in introspection. Through this, and creativity I can see God, Santa Clause, a unicorn, the
past, the future etc.
My method may not be conventional, or well-recieved for that matter, but it does work for me.
