When we define our spirituality, our perception of the divine, do we also limit it?
Taking this into consideration, we know that there are many instances of children who, lacking any ideas of spirituality, seem to accept most naturally the occurrence of spiritual things--the "invisible friends" of childhood, for instance. Are they spirits? Angels? Beings we adults cannot see because we have lost that innocent connection?
What do you think? When we define our perceptions, do we also lose something of them? Your thoughts?
What I am talking about is the narrowing of perception through definition; we learn to see and accept spirituality in only certain channels, and this in and of itself limits the range of our experiences.
That is something entirely different than the mere verbal description you are talking about.
