Can you be spiritual if you don't believe in spirits?

Is it possible to be spiritual if you don't believe in some sort or spirits?

I think so yes. Being spiritual doesn't necessarily mean spirits I feel. It can be more about immaterialism or more focused on how people are connected and things happen for a reason etc. Those kinds of believes. Idk how to really put it into words. Brain is slow today

Actually this is a really cool answer. I didn't know what immaterialism was so I looked it up. This is what Google said, "the belief that material things have no objective existence." That's really trippy. Also you gave the examples how people are connected and the idea that things happen for a reason. That does seem to be what "spiritual" is when it doesn't have to do with spirits. Thanks for responding to the post.

I think a soul allows for you to be "spiritual" without actually needing to believe in spirits. It's hard to explain. Even I don't really know for sure.

Without getting into my own beliefs and only focusing on your question, my answer is: yes.

Yes, but if there are no spirits, what does "spiritual" mean? It seems like spirituality without spirits is a contradiction by definition. I'd love to hear your thoughts if it doesn't bother you if I question them. I don't want to offend anyone. I used to be religious and now I'm an atheist. But I know there is a lot we don't understand and I love to hear what others have to say in case there's something to learn.

Spirituality is more about how we are all connected through an unknown source. It has nothing to do with spirits or ghosts or other entities. I mean spirituality itself. It has more dept into it.

It's hard to put it into words for us , because spirituality is not sensory.

Huh that makes sense to me. "We are all connected through an unknown source". That's factually true yet so profound. I really appreciate you sharing your thoughts.

Anyone can experience a liminal moment. Just because you use a different term for that state doesn't mean it's a different state. Our beliefs, in my opinion, so not effect our ability to be human. A materialist mathematician enraptured by a formula is just as spiritual as a Christian at prayer.
