As I was unhappily driving through the corn fields this morning, because one of my children just couldn't get out of bed. This quote came to me.
" we are not physical beings in a spiritual world, but spiritual beings in a physical world"
I want everyones thoughts on this, But here's catch. you can only answer once and you cannot respond to others. Play nice or don't play at all. Also I'm posting anon for a change as I don't want any preconcieved notions as to why. Just think of me as a cat I'm courious. This sucks no spell check. argg

  • Our souls are what makes us spiritual. Our souls are what allows us to go back to the Father. Our physical make up is what confuses what we really are.

  • I think we are spiritual beings in a physical world, trapped in flesh untill we die.

  • I don't believe in souls.....so I'd say we're physical beings in a world where most people are spiritual.

  • we are not physical beings in a spiritual world, but spiritual beings in a physical world

  • I do find that I agree with the quote. At least, in terms of my own personal experience. But I feel as though I am spiritual. If someone who feels they are not spiritual, who doesn't believe in spirits or souls or what have you, answers, I'm sure their perception will lead them to say they disagree with the quote.

    Really, its all about one's own personal faith (or lack thereof), whether or not they agree.

    And there's nothing wrong with that.

  • Click on "Use full Editor" for spell check.

    I disagree with the quote but that is because I do not believe in souls or a spiritual world. I believe a person's souls is simply their inner consciousness. Their thoughts, feelings, knowledge, experience, etc.Their "Inner self" so to speak. When they die their brain ceases to function and thus their "inner self" or consciousness ceases to exist as well.

    However this is only my perspective in which the term spiritual refers to souls. If you use spiritual to refer to a person's inner emotion then the answer might change. So the definition of spiritual is important in deciding the context of the quote.
