There is a spirit of place with every place, accessible to our feeling/spiritual side. We live mostly cutoff from that side, learning as we do from shortly after birth that the only side that counts is our intellectual/rational side. Intuition and instinct suffer from this division, and we live with half (or less) of our faculties operational. Developing our feeling/spiritual side is our task for the second-half of life, and too many of us put it off well past the time for doing anything about it. For all practical purposes, this means we live without having lived at all, because "spiritual" in this world means "intellectual understanding of what passes for religion." All of our religious symbols can be explained/defined/said/told/expounded. We can do a better job with any of them than we can with "ice cream." Sheldon Knopp said, "Some things can be experienced, but not understood, and some things can be understood, but not explained." All of these things belong to the feeling/spiritual side of things. How many of them inhabit your world? Live to enlarge/expand/extend that aspect of your world. Practice feeling more than you can think. Feel yourself through life, or through a day, or through the next fifteen minutes. Practice sensing the spirit of a place in every place you enter. Develop your sense of your own spirit. And the spirits of those you enjoy being around. And the spirits of those you cannot be around. Open yourself to the world of spiritual reality, that has nothing to do with theology, or doctrine, or dogma, or dharma. But has everything to do with truth. Open yourself to that world, and be amazed.
