I’m still wondering about it. How are you spiritual? I read on so many blogs what seems increasingly like a meaningless cacophony.
How are they spiritual? They even apprehend matters of the spirit in ways they fancy objective. How are they anything but idolaters? These are matters apprehended in communion, from which they would remove themselves as subject. They do not know that they participate except for the vague warnings of those who cannot escape the hermeneutical observations that we must bring ourselves along. They want something other and have reified whatever it is they perceive, and by this measure, an idolatrous measure, judge spirituality, like barking dogs and lowing cattle. For the reified perceptions are mechanical, independent, irrational and anti-metaphysical, the nonsense of naturalism. How we are spiritual, the apprehension of spiritual matters cannot be had without imagination. Piety must grow with consciousness; and this nonsense of cacophony has an effect of making us more unconscious. How long before they turn to the vicious deconstruction of what they fancy certainty? When the world they are increasingly less conscious of grows smaller than the self?
Is it any hope that the tedious years of nominalism will be spent?
