"Any lasting spirituality comes from an experience..that cannot be taught, other than what the experience shows, if you want to talk about 'religion', that's a whole different animal. Dogma comes through 'drilling in', but 'Love' comes from within, and melds with the one in the same, without. It is a union...sorta like an embrace of a conscious living force...things open up...but as I told you a couple of years ago, you have to ask for it honestly, and sincerely...NOT imagining the answer you'll get....and if you get nothing, then blow it off.....but, don't close off, raising the bar, to suit YOUR definition of what the answer has to look like. Be open to a conscious, actual entity of 'Love'."

Aaaahhh! Spirituality! Another of those specious qualities, like (religious) faith, which, when mentioned (or piously intoned in a hushed whisper) is supposed to make me bow my head, look all solemn and shuffle my feet, whilst making the mentioner appear to be all wise and sagacious. Instead, these days, I tend to think, "what a load of bollocks!"
