According to Merriam-Webster's Dictionary, spirituality is "1: something that in ecclesiastical law belongs to the church or to a cleric as such; 2: Clergy; 3: sensitivity or attachment to religious values; 4: the quality or state of being spiritual" (Merriam-Webster.com dictionary, 2021).
Merriam-Webster's Dictionary provided their definition of what spirituality is, but in my opinion, there is no set meaning for spirituality. It is very complex, and spirituality can not possibly be confined into a straightforward definition.
We, as human beings, have been gifted to live in this world for various purposes. We all find our own sense of 'self' and way of life. Being spiritual is our unique way of living, being, and believing.
Therefore, I am convinced that it is fair enough to gain our own definition of what spirituality means.
Spirituality in my book is learning, growing, and knowing thyself, understanding that everything in this universe is interconnected. The energies are combined, whether negatively or positively charged. I personally believe in a higher being, but spirituality does not always coincide with a God or Higher Entity. Spirituality can be a 'sense of connection.' Not specified because it is broad and obtains many different concepts.
But! That is what makes this world spiritually beautiful; the diversity and vast meanings of what spirituality is! What is most important is what it means to us as individuals and how it can help us through our life paths!
So......What exactly does spirituality mean to you?
