Spirituality begins for many of us as Children. We learn about God, or Gods. We learn about the life and adventures of Gods, and the spiritual lessons associated with these adventures.
This is where experience comes. Once you realize you are not the body, you now must let go of the concepts of both the "I" and "God", and uncover the Love that makes the two One. Love is not a "thing", it is an action of unfolding.
it must be found for yourself. As Nisargadatta Maharaj used to say, one must come to this conclusion on your own, and live accordingly.
