"Once the religious - or spiritual - experience has been encountered, it needs no further justification."

This is precisely the phenomenology of what has lead to the great religious and dogma driven atrocities of history be it the Inquisition or the War in Iraq -the presumption of having encountered the religious - or spiritual - experience thus becoming the possessor of absolute truth: evidence be damned and/or manufactured.

Notions of "True spiritual experience" being "a heart based experience founded in Love - unconditional Love." can hardly be surpassed in meaninglessness.

Who is the arbiter of Truth in Spirituality, you? Who are your designated teachers, leaders and promoters of "heart based practices"? Mormon missionaries? The Dalai Lama?
