Hey Cumol, not sure if you saw this podcast was recently re-posted. Talk about timing.
I strongly agree with lil's bit about having a sense of oneness, especially at something such as concert or play, stand-up comedy, things of that nature. It's part of why I like concerts so much, namely the small ones. I do not feel a connection when there are thousands of people watching a band play, but throw me in a room with 50 other people watching some small-town band play and there is very much a sense of oneness, and a sense of spirituality and purpose associated with it.
I am not religious, I do not have a belief in a God or any diety, I do not necessarily believe in life after death or that everything will be alright in the end, that there's a heaven and hell or whatever you want to call these things. I am not a faithful person.
However, I have over time gained some sort of sense of spirituality. I believe that in recognizing moments, in being able to critically analyze the meaning of moments in your life, can lead to sense of spirituality and a more innate sense of purpose. On occasion, I believe that this spiritual feeling is something that isn't reasonable, that things enter and leave your life in precise moments that cannot be controlled, and thus cannot be accounted for. But they are there, and they are important. And it is because of the existence of these unknowable and transitional moments that I feel spiritual at times. I believe that the incursion of these moments, however fleeting, can lead to a personal enlightenment.
