"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity." Albert Einstein, Albert Einstein on Spirituality

Albert Einstein on Spirituality
"Every one who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe-a spirit vastly superior to that of man, and one in the face of which we with our modest powers must feel humble."
Blink by Malcolm Gladwell
Blink is about the first two seconds of looking--the decisive glance that knows in an instant. Gladwell persuades readers to think small and focus on the meaning of "thin slices" of behavior. The key is to rely on our "adaptive unconscious"--a 24/7 mental valet--that provides us with instant and sophisticated information to warn of danger, read a stranger, or react to a new idea. Read the author's mini-report...
Parents, healers and teachers joining together to provide support and inspiration for highly aware children and their families, dedicated to ensuring these children learn that -- They belong here. They are not alone. They have love and guidance when needed. Their presence makes a difference in the world. They are deeply connected to one another. They can trust themselves. They are a treasured gift to humanity.

Kathleen Noble 
Another thing is that part of giftedness involves an affective awareness. Not a hundred percent of the time, but a lot of gifted women have intense radar; they're very psychic, and that can intensify introversion, if you withdraw from crowds because you always feel raw, or pick up too much energy. So if you do have that kind of sensitivity, you really have to honor it, and respect it, and learn how to choose those energies that nourish you and avoid those that drain you. That's hard. We're learning all the time." "A number of my gifted clients are psychic or have psychic abilities. That's only one place they might get pathologized...

The Secret Spiritual World of Children: The Breakthrough Discovery that Profoundly Alters Our Conventional View of Children's Mystical Experiences by Tobin Hart
Adults too often mistakenly believe that to be considered spiritual a child must understand the tenets of a particular religion.  Defining spirituality as an intimate and direct influence of the divine in our lives, Hart interviewed more than 100 children and adults about their experiences. The inspiring accounts he reports reveal that often independently of, and sometimes despite, their parents, children enjoy rich and rewarding relations with the spiritual side of life. He concludes by proposing that parents encourage spirituality in their children by recognizing them as complete spiritual beings, and he offers parents a "spiritual curriculum" intended to nurture a child's personal power and perspective...

Spirituality and the Highly Gifted Adolescent by Stephanie Tolan
"Spirituality, on the other hand, is an individual's experience of and relationship with a fundamental, nonmaterial aspect of the universe that may be referred to in many ways...It is the way the individual finds meaning, the way the individual relates to "life, the universe and everything.""
Stephanie Tolan 
"What many people don't understand about this book is that the characters are based on real children and the telepathic connection is one I observed while working with those children. This group, six kids between the ages of 6 and 12, with a mean IQ of 200+, communicated with each other without language during a session I was facilitating at a "learning festival." They were working on a "group novel" together and worked out the first scene in the ordinary way humans expect to work together, talking their ideas out and arguing back and forth as they went. But when the first scene was finished, I asked them to sit quietly while I jotted down what we had worked out so that we wouldn't lose it when we went on with the process. They sat quietly while I wrote. When I finished recording the first scene, I asked what happened next. Someone answered with a fictional event that was farther along in the story -- let's say scene four. I said we needed to decide what happened in between. All of them began telling me the same story and the hair on my arms and the back of my neck rose."
