    Excellent show!

    While I’m not religious and might even be classified as an “atheist” by some … I totally agree with Omar’s philosophy.

    I consider myself to be spiritual in that, I believe there is a large spiritual entity or entities “out there” but I couldn’t start to explain what it is, exactly.

    I think of spirituality as something like flying: it’s beneficial for seeing things in a much larger context and beneficial for assisting our human planning.

    Like flying though, it requires a good amount of learning. Since most people aren’t learned in flying, they’d never be able to take off in an airplane and land safely. Only pilots have developed that skill. So, if we want to fly, we have to rely on pilots to take us up and bring us back down safely again. Or, we learn to fly ourselves and become pilots.

    Flying successfully depends entirely on attitude. The right attitude keeps the plane in the sky; a wrong attitude will cause that same plane to plunge and crash. Same air but it all depends on attitude.

    Pilots can make mistakes and kill their entire “congregations” by assuming a wrong attitude by mistake.

    Theoretically, ANYONE can learn to fly an airplane and … there are numerous “disciplines” or flying rules taught to pilots. Does, being a pilot, make the pilot more holy or righteous than the rest of the “followers” he flies around? No.

    Does rule learning and strict obedience make the best pilot? No. A good pilot does his own research and learning by making mistakes and OBSERVING a great deal. In an emergency, a good pilot can sometimes work a “miracle” by applying his logic and exercising faith!

    Spirituality isn’t confined to any religion and -indeed- can’t even BE defined by religious training. It’s really a very personal thing … just like being a pilot is very personal.
