The word “spirituality” means different things to different people. I define a person involved with spirituality as someone concerned with the spiritual side of life and how knowledge from these other realms affect life in our world.
We must develop sensitivities to experience the non-physical side of life. As children we came into the world with these sensitivities and gradually they get conditioned out of us, but they can be regained.
Understanding the meaning of spirituality is best when coming from direct experience. The conditioning of our educational system is all about the analytical mind, and yet to have direct spiritual experiences we need to turn off our analytical mind and listen.
Think about how long it took you to learn to read and what an incredible tool it is for enjoyment, survival, a basic for life. Take some time to learn to meditate or practice meditation. It too is a tool for enjoyment, survival, a basic for life, and a key for understanding spirituality.
