Would you agree that every person is inherently spiritual just by virtue of being human?

According to my belief system, I am God, you are God and all things created by God are God. When we give up our physical selves all that is left is God.

One's idea of God is as individual as one's response to a symphony. I cannot possibly hear the symphony for you, nor can I experience God for you. Then why must my description of God be the same as yours?

I would agree that everyone is inherently spiritual, but I don't see being human as is its proof or its cause. To me, that would be proving life because we see death.
I even accept that all are on their path back to God, despite the appearances, but that's just me.

Blessings, Baehron

I like that perspective. I would agree to an extent. I am very panentheistic in my perspective on Deity, and therefore see God/Goddess/The Great Unmanifest as residing in all things.

I think as we all have a spiritual portion of our being we would hopefully have some drawing towards spirituality.

Panentheistic is one of those words I ran into recently in a class I am taking to brush up on a general knowledge of world religions. One runs into a lot of people who are panentheistic but few know the word. Great extra credit word for a kids grammar class I think.

In the beginning, now and in the end.
