    I think there's a lot of wisdom in all types of religions, philosophies, and belief systems. One doesn't need to follow or adhere to these beliefs entirely, to glean some positive affirmations to apply in life. I thought it'd be nice to have a thread to post random spiritual and/or religious comments, observations, art, lyrics, quotes, etc or basically whatever speaks to you, from a spiritual or philosophical point of view.

    Is this really what passes for a witty remark these days?

    I think there's an intriguing perspective behind it.
    Also, sometimes a remark has philosophical or spiritual value not because it is so witty or a pure truthbomb on itself, but because it makes you look at something from a different angle and triggers a pondering a person otherwise might not have had at all

    I fail to see what's so intriguing. Yes the sun shines, creates light which in turn makes things appear less dark. Not trying to talk shit here I really just don't understand how such a statement is impressive in any way.

    Should I take that to mean you won't share such an intriguing perspective then?

    Whenever we no longer make distinctions, between who we are and what we are doing, whether we are being spiritual or philosophical no longer matters.

    Sometimes, gems of wisdom can be wrapped in humor. Or sarcasm? lol

    If there is such a "gem" in his statement I can't find it. That's why I asked for clarification.
