I define spirituality as man's relationship to his environment. While I often argue with Lightgigantic about the meaning of God, and how religion interferes with science, I do think having a spiritual life is important. What this means for me is going beyond the concepts and definitions that seem to rule day-to-day life and experiencing the world as it is. Language is a barrier to this, since the things we name are not those names at all, but transcend definition. Meditation and quiet contemplation are beneficial to the mind. I would call this more ordinary than ordinary mind, which is caught up in the business of the world, more and more scattered and confused as the information we deal with comes to us more and more quickly. I have no idea what spirit means, except as a metaphor, or what more advanced means in terms of spirituality. I see it as perhaps a return to a simpler worldview, more animalistic in the best sense, not brutal and violent, but innocent and direct.
