Re: Theory: "Spiritual" vs "Learning something new we can't explain"
so the practice is the spiritual but it is not to be valued by the person as spiritual because that would cause some sense of 'desire' to have or be spiritual, which is the root of suffering? Am I right in interpreting your point about Buddhist traditions as relating to the four noble truths?
@ Krystal Locke if that is how you choose to see the world then fair enough, however, the way I see it is just because language may be inadequate at times does not mean the reality it seeks to communicate does not exist. Take the word love for example. I say I love martial arts, I love Mexican food, I love wearing my favourite t-shirt. It is the same English word but carries different meaning depending on the context.
