” what of fidelity and loyalty? complete trust? faith is not granted by tangible proof. it comes from the heart and soul. if a person needs proof of a god’s existence, then the very notion of spirituality is diminished into sensuality and we have reduced what is holy into what is logical “.
from the character, drizzt do’urden of r.a. salvatore’s the legend of drizzt, book ix, siege of darkness.
since we are not defined by our experiences which are processed by our sense organs, our perceptions of everything we encounter in our lives are merely illusions. our logic of god which is defined by our five senses doesn’t qualify so much as spirituality because it has become an intellectualized understanding of who and what god represents. the whole process takes place in the brain, and it has become very cerebral. spirituality however is an awareness and an experiential process that is not quantifiable and cannot be intelectualized.
