What Is Spirituality? What Does It Mean Anyway?
What is spirituality exactly? In a world of competing organized religions seeking to acquire volume to their collective flock, an emerging category called spiritual emerged into a more prevalent spotlight during the course of my lifetime.
As I shared, I abandoned Judaism after my bar mitzvah and was looking for answers which I shared yesterday were in these collective thoughts. Does that constitute spirituality? I don’t think so. So, what is spirituality? Is it the kindness that one is able to express to a complete stranger, just because? Is it the ability to walk into a silent forest and feel the overwhelming sense of source? Is it looking into the eyes of your child and wanting to give them every ounce of your love? Is it holding your parent in a warm hug and feeling the appreciation for all that they have brought into your life? Or is it planting a seed as expressed in this quotation above and watching a magical flower emerge over time?
Perhaps it’s none of the above. Perhaps it’s nondescript and words will never quantify or qualify what constitutes spirituality.
Maybe it is the love and the light in everything? Or maybe it is knowing in your heart that you care about things on such a level that you are willing to go far beyond measure to attempt to make things continually better for the generations that will follow. I don’t pretend to have the answer, but there is a great proverb from ancient Greece which says that a wise man plants the seed of a tree under whose shadow he will never rest.
Each and every day I try to find one more reinforcement that my perspectives on reality and spirituality have validity and I work even more diligently to conduct myself in a manner that is befitting of such a quest.
As a boy I marveled at King Arthur and the Knights of the Roundtable heading out on the quest for the holy Grail. As an adult I find myself on the quest for trying each and every day to become a better human being. I certainly don’t have the answers as to what is spirituality really, but I am enjoying being on the path✨?✨

The fact that I can plant a seed and it becomes a flower, share a bit of knowledge and it becomes another’s, smile at someone and receive a smile in return, are to me continual spiritual exercises. – Leo Buscaglia
