The Spiritual "You"
Our spiritual side. There are many viewpoints when it comes to figuring out this aspect of ourselves, aren't there?
You may have turned this subject into a mystery by refusing to take time in understanding how you relate to it (until now!). Because of this, it can be difficult to speak in a way that really "connects" with everyone.
One of the first things you have to work on with spiritual growth is detaching yourself from your "ego". Your ego is the part of you that tries to keep you from spiritual enlightenment. It's the part of you that wants anything but inner peace and abundance.
The ego tries to keep you centered on the physical plane of your existence. There is a much deeper part of you that you've forgotten or lost touch with - that unseen, but very real "spiritual" you.
I believe that you are trying to "remember" this aspect of your being rather than trying to "find" it. Why?
I remember having vivid feelings or even dreams as a kid that, as I reflect on them, may have meant much more than I ever realized.
As one example, I remember being about 7 or 8 and having a time-frame of about a year where I would wake up scared to death for some reason.
It's hard to explain in words what I felt, but it was as if the air around me was "solid".
I felt as if I was surrounded by something jagged, sharp edged and solid, although there was nothing there that I could see.
This "perception" would fade away as I became more awake. It's hard to describe with words this feeling I was experiencing. I had actually forgotten about the entire thing until recently when something I read by Michael Talbot caused me to remember.
I wonder now if I woke up scared, not because there was anything that I should have been afraid of, but because I was tapping into something "beyond" that I didn't understand.
If I had been encouraged to pursue these feelings further, would I have discovered how to tap into my spiritual feelings more easily and come to understand what those experiences meant to me?

In the "Holographic Universe", Michael Talbot explores the idea that the universe we see as "real" may not be so at all. It may be an illusion.
The universe is really made up of energy that our perceptions turn into our sense of reality. The more we get in touch with our spiritual selves, the more we can see that what we perceive as "solid" could be seen just as easily as "transparent" if we knew how.

Is this phenomenon what I was tapping into? Was the space around me waves (air) one moment and particles (solid) the next?
Back to the ego... Our ego will try to tell us that this is all ridiculous - "There's nothing there except what we can see with our own eyes and anything otherwise is nonsense."
There is too much "spiritual" documentation to warrant you listening to this part of yourself. I intend to explore these ideas and experiences of others further.
For now, though, I just want you to consider which part of "you" you have been paying the most attention to most of your life. The ego that tries to keep you feeling separated from everything around you or the spiritual part of you that could set you free from all things miserable if you'd let it?
Which one? Which one do you want to feed and work on?
