What Is Spirituality?


What is spirituality?

First of all lets admit and agree on the fact that every one of us has a spirit inside.

This divine spirit is like any other living and breathing organism, it must be nurtured and fed.

That brings us to this subject and the question of what spirituality is and how to understand it. Our spirit is searching in an underlying way for peace, accomplishment and resolution.

Spirituality is a quest where our spirit can find a sense of peace. It’s a concept completely taken away from any rules, hierarchies or dogma, and it’s dedicated to the human soul.

At it’s core, spirituality is a personal experience that is built upon a system of personal beliefs.

It is being in search of the meaning of life. Even deeper, the meaning of your life. It seeks and finds answers to the question, what am I on this planet for? It stands for a greater meaning to life than what we experience in the external physical and material world.

Spirituality is also a way of garnering steadfast internal fortitude that helps us deal with everyday challenges in life. It allows us to connect with something larger in magnitude than ourselves. It’s a form of cosmic tuning and alignment with laws of the universe that were here before we came, and will remain unchanged and be here after we are gone.

Being spiritual can be a little confusing because it can mean different things to different people. Spirituality can be related to religion, and even a higher power for some, yet for others it can be a non-religious experience. An example would be connecting with art, nature, yoga, meditation, prayer, etc.

Within those experiences are different types of spirituality and practices that surface, so let’s talk more about them and answer some common questions about spirituality.
