What Is Spirituality?

Ask a hundred people this question and you will get a hundred different answers. 

For me, spirituality means establishing a relationship with Spirit. Spirit lies beyond the veil of separation and is not physical. But Spirit also dwells within you. In that sense, spirituality means connecting with what you really are.

The Real You is not a physical body. Rather, the Real You is a soul. Your physical body is just a temporary illusion that You-as-Soul created in order to experience physicality. You don’t have a soul, you are a soul. In the process of discovering what you really are, you also begin to discover that physical “reality” is not real. You come here from the other side of the veil, but you deliberately forget this in order to make your experiences here on Earth seem real.

In spirituality, we make use of spiritual studies and spiritual practices to establish a relationship with Spirit. My favorite spiritual study is A Course in Miracles. My favorite spiritual practice is meditation.

Spirituality and religion are not synonymous. I myself am spiritual but not religious (SBNR). If anything, religion has tried to separate us from Spirit by interposing itself between us and Spirit.

You pre-planned your life before you incarnated, so you are not a victim of other people or life's circumstances. You expected your life to be a learning experience. You also expected your life to be a joyous experience despite the challenges you would face. But you became entangled in the fear and drama of human life, believing it to be real.

A great shift in consciousness is now occurring here on Earth. This shift will help you remember what you really are. It will help you remember your reason for coming here. It’s a very exciting journey you are on here in the physical cosmos!

That's what spirituality means to me. What does it mean to you?
