Grin Lighten up John. This is for children LOL  Grin

Then why fill children's minds with many things that are not to do with spirituality, or at least not directly? Why make it more complicated with beliefs and make-believe which often turn out to be mere fallacies?

John,
The intent of the thread is to give an innocent explanation of things spirituality to kids. Because they have innocent minds. As can be seen from my post, for example, i tried to get to the child's mind as best possible, for them to understand. When a child understands, they will filter out whatever they don't need, afterall, they are more intune than us.  Smiley

John it is ALL fallacies.

Words cannot give you enlightenment. You have to expereince it. Words cannot give it to you. So while we use words, that is merely a finger pointing at something, we can make it beautiful.

Sorry about the several re-edits on my last post. I need to get it right but have problems finding the right words.

There are several meanings to the word "spirit" so consequently spirituality often gets confused with ghosts and the "the spirit world" and many other things such as much of the above ABC's.

The word "spirit" means that which is intangible which cannot be grasped by the hands as anything physical. Gasses and vapours would be in that category and this is why the Hebrew word ruah or the Latin word spiritus refer to breath and life (without breath we are not alive). Also, the Hebrew ruah, as also the Latin spiritus, designate the wind - no-one sees the wind although its effects can be felt and seen.

In regard to spirituality however, it's referring to what drives our thoughts and feelings, the essence of the real you (or I), the spirit of who we are - hence upon discovering who we really are, we evolve into spiritual people. It has little to do with ghosts, fairies (or Faeries), elves and so on but rather to be effective in the world; it's to do with how we express who we are when we know who we are (most people don't!) - then our very existence depends on the creative/love side of the universe - the attractive laws and principles of bringing matter (and people) together.

It has little to do with religious beliefs which substitute spirituality with doctrines and rules. True spirituality comes from within, not from outside ourselves via pious religious teachers or even a genuine guru. Then when we realise (awaken) to the bigger picture, we more clearly see that while we have identity (ego) as individuals, we all came from the same and are connected. Then and only then, can we truly unselfishly love fellow humans (and even other creatures) as ourselves. And 'love' is only real love when put into practice. To me this is practical spirituality.
