What Do You Think of The Spiritual Realm?

A friend of mine once startled me by saying, “Sometimes I think the spiritual realm is more real than the physical realm.”

That gave me a start, but I understand what he meant—and yearn to understand it more fully.

It’s been said that “we are a spirit, we have a soul, and we live in a body.” That suggests that our body, while temporal, will be outlasted by our spirit.

Implicitly then our spirit is more important than our body and, going to the next step, more real.

While we can only begin to vaguely comprehend the spiritual realm, I do believe it is real—and more real and more important than this tangible, physical realm, which sees me typing these words into my computer, to be posted on a blog, for you to read.

There is a physical realm and a spiritual realm. Right now I am residing in both, though mostly in the physical. One day I expect to transition fully and completely into the spiritual realm.

That is what we commonly call death, but I call eternal life.
