The Gnosis of Wudan

Today on Facebook I said:

The best spiritual experiences are ones were there are no words, and few people. So, technically speaking, anything outdoors is almost always more likely to be spiritually uplifting than anything you can experience indoors; except in cases where there are few people and fewer words involved.

Draw from that what you will, it represents approximately 87% of my spirituality, cultivated over years of reflection and deep thought.

Agnostic is merely a technical term, and like most terms only offers a cynical glimpse at the idea behind it. There’s nothing wrong with saying I don’t know, I have come to see it as a perversion of nature when someone does claim to know, but I must admit, that myself not knowing does not necessarily preclude others from knowing.

… which probably wasn’t a good response to a joking discussion.

But I thought it was a pretty well thought out and short explanation of my very spiritual belief system.

    I must admit that it did throw me off guard. 🙂

    I can totally see what your saying, though, and have to say that I agree with you for the most part. When I say, “I know there is a God,” I think it’s more of, “I really believe this and have strong feelings that it is true,” but unless I actually see God myself, much of my beliefs are based on faith rather than knowledge.

    And I think you’re right about the best spiritual experiences. Most spiritual experiences or affirmations of my faith have been in situations where I am by myself or with just a couple of friends/family.

    That’s one of the more profound and beautiful spiritual expressions I’ve come across, Wudan.
