YCT Goes on its 1st Ever Spirituality Retreat
It was good. Nothing fancy - just good. Not perfect, but what is?
The highlight of the day and a half for me - aside from the actually decent food - was discovering, at least prima facie, what my spiritual connection was, or in other words, what spirituality was for me. Surprisingly, for me, spirituality is divorced from conceptions of God, at least for now. That isn't to say I don't believe in God - that is not in question, nor has it been since I heard of The Concept back in the day.
not only discovering it for me, but also realizing that everybody understands their spirituality or spiritual connection on their own terms, for themselves, and that there is no objective spirituality. Of course, this necessitates that New Age spirituality is also not for everybody, and that popular conceptions of spirituality don't always work for people, and surely not New Age ones.
