What questions do you most ponder about regarding spirituality
I am doing some research in preparation for my next book. I would love to hear from some of you what questions you often wonder about regarding spirituality, the soul, spiritual living, etc.
What is the way to get closest to God ? If only God would have allowed human of 'free will' then why this hunger, poverty and destruction at all? and thus the list goes on and on......If the question would have been little direct and area specific then it would have little easier to write the reply. Because the spiritual questions may have a lot of varieties to ponder about.
dghbrh - What a great question. I really appreciate your response and this is exactly the type of input I was hoping to see. I also think your question is one that is asked by many, many people. Blessings.
We are here to become who we choose to be. The main reason why there is poverty, world hunger, ect. is for us to decide who we are in relation. We live in relativity. We could not know we are poor, if there wasn't a such thing as being rich.
The questions I ponder often change as my spirituality matures. I have found the sequence of ?!?!?!?!?! (questions followed by insights) is a common pattern to my growth. The questions I ask change on a weekly if not daily basis. They vary from "What does this passage mean?", "How could you love me with all my faults?", "What does Scripture say about __________?", "How should I respond to such and such person who is such an irritant in my life right now?", "What do you want me to do for so and so?"
This is just a sampling of some of the questions that I have asked and sought answers for.
How do I get rid of "I?"
Ego is as sticky as flypaper, and more seductive and sinister. It pretends to be me. How do I disown it?
How do I find again the moments when I had no ego? Like when 2 miles of rush-hour traffic on Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles disappeared within 5 seconds and remained parted for 4 minutes. Like when I stood 15 feet above the ground and 12 feet off my body's left shoulder -- able to see as clearly without my human eyes. Like the time I held my breath and God sustained me for long minutes past my usual threshold of pain and ability.
How do I lose all of my attachments to this world so that I can walk through it without being of it?
How do I multiply my love to the point where it fills me with no room for any darkness?
I often ponder whether our beliefs will take us to further our paths. I wonder if you can remain by choice to help coporial beings on their journies in this relm? Is it something you do to correct damage done while here or is it something you can do because you can? Are you able to haunt the people that hurt you and excact your small revenge by scaring the daylights out of them or are you only able to do good? Is it ascention? Why do we appear as orbs and mists and only some are seen in the human form? I'll stop here other wise the list gets very long!!!
LOL Shawn. Yes, these questions go on & on. Isn't that the magic of our life - that we have the ability to ponder the unknown. You have really touched on some fantastic (but tough), themes with your questions. I really appreciate your input.
Sometimes I am so caught up in daily living in the physical, but at night, or quiet times, my mind constantly goes back to (for me) one of the greatest mysteries of human life on earth, which is: what happens to us when we die? were do we go, what is our awareness and most importantly, do we still have an awareness of those we loved in life?
Thanks Mrs. Jill Manning. Yes, this is a big question isn't it? I recently saw a story that may inspire and comfort you - I attached a link here. http://amzn.to/MTwF53. Thank you so much for your participation.
Thankyou ! I just checked that book out and, and it resonates with other experiences whilst nursing, and also in my own family. I particularly liked the line 'everything is still perfect in the greater tapestry of life, for we ever truly die'
If everything on this planet operates in a cyclic formation, that is with a beginning and and end that seem to overlap one another, how come it isn't a common idea to think the same thing happens to human life. I am referring to reincarnation. If energy is neither created nor destroyed, then how can the soul be anything but reused?

How would you describe your spirituality?
by Phyllis Doyle Burns 5 years ago
I am a spiritual person -- this does not define my beliefs or my religion. What it does mean is that I am true to myself and my beliefs. I was raised a Christian and still have the basic beliefs, that God and Jesus do exist. I pray to God and I talk with Jesus for guidance and healing -- I also...
