    Concentrate on your philosophical belief as a spirit. Then, try to reconcile the impossible with the reality. If you can, try to meditate for a time, then, see yourself as the Lord. Be your own Messiah. After mediation, write about your thoughts or feel free to scribble a poem like mine...please read: MESSIAH FACE HIS FEAR..
    With that as your guideline, make a short article regarding your noble ideas to create your dominion...

      Spirituality only exists in oneself when one is at peace.

      When one can remove all limitations from their path, without much effort, one can build spiritual happiness.

      To be spiritual, as in 'religion', then I'll disagree.

      The spirituality humans are suppose to be seeking is oneness with themselves.

      To do this, one turns inside to look for answers and NOT to external authorities, such as religious leaders or text.

      That would be what society would call being 'self-responsible'.

      You would reach a stage of clarity about your life and what direction your life is headed. If needs be arise that you make a change, then you do so, because you're completely at peace with yourself and you understand your existence.

      So, what's next.

    I thing spiritual means different things to different people. My definition of spiritual is that which reflects my God,Jehovah. His spirit has certain attributes or qualities which through study of the Bible, meditation on His word and asking in prayer for a portion of his spirit and help to bear the fruits of that spirit.
    This is what spirituality means to me. I strive to live my life in harmony with what Jehovah God requires. It does not require any heightened awareness. It didn't for Jesus disciples and so it does not for me.

      Did you know that when Jesus Christ first met his disciples, they were completely unaware of their own existence.

      I suggest a little research into what you believe. Human evolution at the time of Jesus Christ was at a stage where language was so primitive, literally in it's beginning.

      As for what you believe, that is completely up to you, to a point. Your consciousness, your conscience and your sub-conscious can not be fooled, regardless of what your mind says.

      It is NOT in the nature of man or woman, to live by any outside authority. To do so, restricts knowledge and true happiness.

      If you've got to be told how to live- how are you living your life for yourself?

      It is in your nature, to live for yourself and provide for yourself. Spiritual belief outside of knowledge and understanding of Life, which is based in reality, as defined by science and philosophy is NOT healthy.

      Just a thought.

    I really do not understand what you mean when you say that Jesus' disciples were unaware of their own existence.

    And I beg to differ with your remark that Language during the time Jesus existed on the earth was in its infancy.

    Can you support your claim?
    There are  writings that exist from that time that indicates that language existed in all of its complexities. I guess you can define development and growth as an evolutionary process. However, I am not so sure how evolved man really is. Mankind is sacrificing the earth to support greed and waste. Is man evolving or de-evolving. There are so many reasons to wonder why in spite of the wealth of knowledge man possesses why man continues to commit suicide.

    The disciples were unaware that there was anything wrong with the Pharisaical  teachings  of their day until they heard what Jesus had to say.

    Your philosophy is an interesting one. However, I do not think anyone can really be  autonomous. We are all shaped by our genetic makeup and our environment. To deny that is to deny your very existence. I think that first we must be honest with ourselves before we can be true to who we are.
