"Spirituality is a particular term which actually means dealing with intuition in the theistic tradition the notion of clinging into a word....a certain act is regarded as displeasing to a divine principle, a certain act is regarded as pleasing for the divine, whatever....in the tradition of non-theism however, it is very direct that the case history are not particularly important...what is actually important is Here and Now ... Now is definitely Now...we try to experience what is available there on the spot...there is no point in thanking that the past did exist that we could have now... this is now... this very moment nothing mystical just simple straightforward and from that nowness however arises a sense of intelligence always that you are constantly interacting with your reality one by one spot by spot constantly we actually experience fantastic precision always but we are threatened by the now so we jump to the past or the future paying attention to the materials that exist in our life all these choices takes place all the time but none of them are regarded as bad or good per se everything we experience are unconditional experience they don't come along as a label saying this is regarded as bad or this is good but we experience them but we do not actually pay heed to them properly we don't actually regard that as we are going somewhere regard that as a hassle waiting to be dead that's a problem that is not trusting your nowness properly but what is actually experienced now posess a lot of powerful things it is so powerful that we can't face it therefore we have to borrow from the past and invite the future all the time and maybe that's why we seek religion maybe that's why we march in the street maybe that's why we complain to society maybe that's why we vote for the presidents it's quite ironical very un(?)ending....."
