Now here’s a fascinating article. In short, a recent survey found that young people (15-25) say they are more spiritual than ever:
“93 percent of the young people surveyed believe there is a spiritual aspect to life.”
“Spending time in nature” topped the list of responses. “Listening to or playing music” was No. 2, and “helping other people or the community” was third.
“Attending religious services” was ninth on the list of the top 12 most-frequent answers.
Many young people are turning to meditation — so many, in fact, that the Mindfulness Meditation Club at the University of Minnesota soon might be forced to find a bigger space for its weekly introductory yoga classes.”

Take your time. And keep the faith.
