    The most beautiful in my spiritual path is that my Guru contacts me, helps me and directs me personal. Even after He left His body.

    Usually He gives me abundance of time to figure it out myself by "Trial and Error". But in case of need He is there for me, without fail

    That is the most beautiful

    The effects it has on one’s person: attentiveness, humility, selflessness, forgiveness, autonomy and peace (in that given order).

    Humbly,

    It's ancient splendour; it's focus on Ma'at (Justice) and the hymns, the poetry, the mystical works of the various books of the journeys through the afterlife, which can also be read as mystical journeys while one is alive.

    I'm not saying it is necessarily "beautiful", but my position is that religion and science should not be at odds, but if it is, then I'm going with the latter.

    Sure. Sannidhya is the spiritual vibration in and around sacred places, temples, and enlightened teachers. Some folks feel it strongly, while others can't feel it at all. It is the cause of what's known in Hinduism as tears of bhakti, different from sadness or joy. It's often stronger where it has been built up over many centuries, like in ancient temples.

    It works.

    My spiritual path is informed by the humanist worldview. Broadly speaking, its metaphysics is naturalistic, its epistemology empirical, and its ethics based in the application of reason to empathy (conscience).

    This facilitates a spiritual and satisfying life because it makes sense and focuses attention on humanity, life, and our world understood through the lens of empiricism. I contend that authentic spirituality resides in a proper understanding of the cosmos and one's relationship with and to it.

    The dedication to reason and learning is a virtue that facilitates a spiritual relationship with the cosmos. If there is a deity, surely it agrees with such values. If it is our creator, then it surely respects those values. The devotion to good as understood by the heart is a spiritual virtue.

    Religions featuring supernatural metaphysics, fideistic epistemologies and received moral systems based in faith and received morals divert attention away from the experience of being, and thus undermine the spiritual experience. We're seeing a tendency for theists to move in this direction with their more modern descriptions of God that begin to approach Mother Nature, tendencies that redirect attention from the angry-old-magical-man-in-the-sky of the Abrahamic religions, to a cosmos that inspires a mystical intuition directly without anthropomorphizing it or detaching that mystical intuition from it and reassigning it to a deity outside of nature much like the humanistic position.

    When I read those kinds of descriptions of God on these threads coming from people in the West, I recognize a transition in them to a more naturalistic view, but with an unwillingness to give up the word God, which once implied commands, afterlives, and punishments until it became more of a Mother Nature deity, closer to the dharmics, pagans, and satanists. Humanism is taking it one step further, dispensing with all talk of spirits.
