What is spirituality? What is the meaning of life? What is my purpose? What does it mean to live from the heart?
Spirituality is a broad concept with room for many perspectives. It’s been around for centuries, as people seek answers to the universal perplexing questions of meaning and existence. Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? Who are we? Is there something greater than ourselves?
For some people it’s about connecting with their true inner nature, or with God, or with the universe, or with life as a whole, or with the essence of every being. For some people, it’s about coming to deep peace within themselves, regardless of what’s happening around them. For some it’s finding their deep purpose, and ways to live it.
Most spiritual approaches see the human being as a consciousness with a connection to something greater than ourselves. Spiritual development typically involves a search for meaning and purpose in life, increasing awareness, and growing into our full potential as a human being. Eventually we may have experiences of oneness with all being.
