      What is "spirituality"?

      How would you define it? How do you relate to it, if at all? How much importance does it have in your life? Is there anything about it that you feel is worth sharing with others?

      What is "spirituality"?

      now that is concise. to me its a feeling of connectedness, a oneness, we are the collective consciousness to the collective unconscious. we are the players on the stage, the pieces of the game. so lets have fun before the curtain draws or the lid goes on the box....

    • What is "spirituality"?

      For me spirituality is a sense of higher purpose and meaning. Something that enriches my life beyond the mundane and seemingly meaningless everyday activities. Being a spiritual person reflects in my everyday life by the moments I stop to simply take joy in everything that surrounds me, by the feeling of connectedness I get when everything I experience in my day to day life seems to fall so perfectly in place :).
      I encourage everyone to develop their sense of spirituality so that they can feel this amazing joy and reassurance that comes from the certainty that everything has a meaning and a purpose. That life is not some random twist of faith and we are not some hopeless puppets roaming the Universe in a mad self destructive game.
      What about you Rift Zone ? What does being spiritual and spirituality mean to you ?
      Take care,
      Veronica

      That's beautiful... Thank you both.

      I'm just an impartial witness here. I'm trying to understand all the nuances of spirituality, not contaminate the discussion with my thoughts on it. I suppose there's no harm in sharing I place a lot of value in spirituality, I have a strong personal relationship with it, and I'm inclined to agree with you guys.

      What is "spirituality"?

      Spirituality is an attempt at the self.
      Spirituality comes in many forms. Including sports, video games, art, music, science, & more
      Spirituality is being aware of spirit/energy/aura/vibes.
      Spirituality is realizing that things exist outside of physicality.
      Spirituality is realizing that you exist independent of your body.
      Spirituality is you. The viewer. The consciousness reading this.
      Not the eyes or the organs or the electrons moving through you, it is you, the observer.
      Spirituality is fun because it is an endless journey.
      There is always more to learn and it can never be mastered.

      Spirituality is very important to me because it has changed my entire life!

      I guess this is one way to describe it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A90xTuPbSa8&list=LLQ6JWYYmoAL1W8FA-7_1YyA&index=26

      What is "spirituality"?

      I like that Starve. Cool take on it.

      June1, I really liked the video... until the last few moments of it. Then I couldn't help but to be reminded of what might be the most memorable of Matthew passages:

      Matthew 10:34-37
      Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law—a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household. Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.

      Overall I thought the vid and the spiritual implications were beautiful. Thanks for sharing it.

      What is "spirituality"?

      spirituality just like anyother word is a word invented out of logic and human intelligence to categorize things. as it is not a thing that can be explained, like how you feel about love hatred heat cold intuition etc associated with it. to me, it is to find our source. the source of life and this intelligence. to know oneself, realize oneself and become what created you (keeping aside evolution and big bang for now) is probably a bad interpretation of spirituality. pain and immense joy can definitely help in understanding it i believe

      What is "spirituality"?

      Yes, taken at the basic level, spirituality relates to the knowledge of some original "self," which is divorced from the accidental traits of existence, either material or social. Spirit is the mind existing in a state of free will, and spirituality is a series of esoteric thoughts about the weirdness of that concept.

    • What is "spirituality"?

      There are some great and very comprehensive answers on here already. My quick take is that spirituality, as far as people who describe themselves as "spiritual" means they adhere to something that is not of one of the major world religions, yet does agree there is something "out there" beyond the physical, something in the world, not just in us (or both); and that while it might be included in nameable religions, it doesn't really have a name.

      What is "spirituality"?

      The Now.
      Being present for as much as possible, it's so powerful we can't stand it, so we turn to the future or the past and live there. How long can you hold it? How long can you stay with this present moment, this REALITY, before you jump ahead to the next possible pleasure, or look back to a memory that gives pleasure, or pain...?
      For me Spirituality is being Present, being in The World is living in the past or future.... On the Court as it happens or in the stands, watching it happen as it WAS or how it IS TO BE

      What is "spirituality"?

      I've come to think of spirituality the journey home. Home is the true self as defined by God/love/fate/the universe (whatever term works for you). It is a moment to moment practice of being with whatever thoughts/emotions come up, stilling them, and acting appropriately from a basis of love. We are all of love and thusly connected through it. However we and the world are imperfect in love and practicing to get back to it.
