thank you to be so open and share with us your personal experience.
A very interesting definition of moral which actually give a sense to such an abstract word.
(people of the forum pls forgive my english, It is not my first language too)
On the base of your definition of spiritual "..other than just those relative to the supernatural phenomena..."
I would like to share some experience I had when I was a child. I Cannot remember exactly the age, maybe 6 years old.
I was laying on the bed in the room of my parents. I was sick with high temperature, 39-40. However I was conscious, body was painful, but my mind was fine, completely awake. I have started to listen voices. Deep voices. I cannot remember the words or the phrases. The voices (maybe one voice) was surrounded by something like echo....hard to explain with words.. voice was coming from everywhere... It was not pleasant. Contemporaneously I felt a strange smell. A smell does not exist in the world we know. I mean, I have travelled enough and I never felt something like that. I cannot completely evoke the smell in my mind, but It was pungent and It was .....how to say, everywhere and coming from nowhere. Sometimes I have the feeling I am near to evoke that smell by some experience, however never happened again.
In the same period, but not during my illness, I had many similar experiences before to fall asleep. I had visions of my father fighting and arguing with people... I mean, I could see with my eyes those events when I was laying in my bed. He was somewhere, far from the room, fighting and arguing ... I did not call those visions, I was six years old and I did not know what is spiritual or meditation or the word vision.
Other time from one side of my bed was coming out a thin and orrible hand... scaring me...
I think somebody could start to think I am mad, but I remember those things they were not in my mind, they were clear and terrible visions. I always screamt and call my mother. Obviously my parents brought me to the phsychiatric, but It seemed everything in my mind was ok... they have said I had only a strong immagination.
I do not know if my experience is properly related to the post, however I would like to say that those visions never came to me again... and honestly, no matter if It was spiritual experience or anything else, but I am happy to not have such a terrible visions... I am so afraid sometimes to feel again that unpleasant smell..
what do I ask to myself is.. why such a thing? What is the meaning? I never found an answer to that..
thank you everybody for the attention.
p.s. Jordan, may I ask you to teach me that "special spiritual exercise" to learn and get $28,000 per month? ..ahahahahahaha...
