The other morning my 17 year old son said. ”The new boats came out today”. He likes to wakeboard and surf with friends and family that have boats. I loved water skiing when I was his age and for many decades after. I thought that is great, what is the difference between the new boat and the old boat? We don’t have a boat nor do we plan on getting one. So I wasn’t sure why he mentioned it. He told me some of the differences and what you could buy for 100K plus.
Out of curiosity I am also reading his psychology class book with him as he begins his senior year. I am being reminded of what I had learned and forgotten from my earlier years. The wonder of how neurons are stimulated and electrochemical connections of dumping into the synaptic cleft cause us to move. If we could only behold the full wonder of our brain and the way it houses our mind.
Other parts of us including the atoms that form our bodies that are also part of all creation suggest that the spiritual nature is simply a higher intelligence of a more complex nature. Atoms can't be created or destroyed. Spirit is a more refined power of light and energy on a scale we currently can't discover. In the present state of life it is confined to act on a limited basis depending how we train our body.
Some are content to leave any spiritual connotations on a shelf and wait. My preference is to understand how the spirit connects and have a complete experience rather than just a partial participation in what lays inside us, around us and even beyond us. I have had sufficient experience to be convinced that eternity and endless space are self evident facts that we should not ignore.
