Our hearts crave connection with beauty and Something Greater to love. Whatever we attach that love to often becomes as a sort of "God" to us. We put it above all else, and so see addiction to substances or states of mind. Common today is the selfishly- driven pursuit of self- will, often commanded by thievers of justice and the people of earth.
The new spirituality reaches for something so much greater than that.
Not every person gets this, and not everyone cares. Not all of us are connected to the inner needs of the soul. That to me is sad, because life often fails such a person and humanity too.
Other people deny Spirit but are actually connected to it, through love, through art, music or nature. They just don't call it by the same name I might.
A whole lot of people just aren't that soul- connected. Often theydon't even know that their hearts may want or need something greater than self. Or they think Spirit is something to fit around their own real life, to crunch up in the corners or snack on in a rare occasion.
To me they're missing out in bigger ways than we know.
But that whole story I leave for another fine day...
