"To be spiritual, as I see it, is to function at a realm beyond thought. It is about living in the darkness of the unknown by honoring the limits to what we are capable of and pushing beyond those limits just to see if we can. To be spiritual is the continual process of manifesting our dreams so that we can pick new ones and so always be in the light of discovery. Spirituality is about feeling "good" regardless of what feelings may manifest at each given moment. Finally, it is about creating love rather than waiting for it to show its face to us. There is nothing for one to "do" to create love, for in love seeing is the doing. To see another without needing him or her or any circumstance to be anything other than who and what they are is to really be love; and in that instant one is propelled out of the realm of thought and into the realm of the spirit."

“One attribute that makes entertainment so popular is that it occurs at a distance - the one being entertained does not have to participate or get personally involved. Being entertained is a pleasant, safe, secure, comfortable intellect-at-a-distance activity that requires little effort, carries no responsibility, and there for generates no fear, guilt, potential for failure, or personal growth. By vicariously reading about (or watching) others doing amazing or cool things, we are able to share and confirm the hero's reality in terms of our own reality without effort or risk."
