What Is Spirituality?

"Spirituality is concerned with one's experience or connection with its soul, rather than this material world." It is a feeling or sense that there is something higher in being human than we experience on a physical level. It is a process of self-awakening and self-realization.

It is a broad concept of belief, including more or less religious, traditional, and secular approaches, but all ultimately focus on soul nourishment and self-realization.

Nourishment of soul, and connecting it with the universe and the Divine, is the main essence of spirituality. It focuses on and strives to answer different questions about the existence of the soul after death, the purpose of this life, and the connection of the soul with this universe and the Divine. It is a source of comfort and enlightenment. It is a gift of the Divine.

10 Inspirational Quotes About Spiritual Awakening

  1. "Fortunately, some are born with spiritual immune systems that sooner or later give rejection to illusionary worldview grafted upon them from birth through social conditioning. They begin sensing that something is amiss and start looking for answers. Inner knowledge and anomalous outer experience show them a side of reality others are oblivious to, and so begin their journey of awakening. Each step of the journey is made by following the heart instead of following the crowd and by choosing knowledge over the veils of ignorance." -Henry Bergson
  2. "The spiritual path wrecks the body and afterwards restores it to health. It destroys the house to unearth the treasure, and with that treasure builds it better than before." -Rumi
  3. "You reach a point where you feel yourself going through an awakening. You look at what you used to do and who you used to be. It hurts because you realize you believed in and promoted non-sense. You grow; you evolve, and you stop because you no longer operate at that frequency. As a result, there's certain people that you have to walk away from. As a result, you start to realize just how messed up the world is. You want to help, you want to heal, you want to make it a better world. This is how you know you are awakening a higher level of consciousness." -Sylvester McNutt
  4. "What hurts you, blesses you. Darkness is your candle. Your boundaries are your quest. Failure is the key to the kingdom within. When you are anxious or worried, be patient. The key of patience opens the door of happiness. You suppose that you are the lock on the door, but you are the key that opens it." -Rumi
  5. "You are not in the universe, you are the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately, you are not a person but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle." -Eckhart Tolle
  6. "Science has the capacity to show mankind the full development of the mental life. Spirituality has the capacity to show mankind the possibility and inevitability of the life beyond the mind, the supra-mental life." -Sri Chinmoy
  7. "I will find new meaning in every joy and sorrow. In that silence, I will hear the voice of spirit. And freed from this world, I will see another world. Where the end is another beginning." -Rumi
  8. "There is something within you that knows what to do. There is a power greater than you that knows how to take care of you without your help. All you have got to do is to surrender to it. Surrender your thoughts, your mind, your ego, to the current that knows the way. It will take care of you. It will take better care of you than you can ever imagine." -Robert Adams
  9. "You are a light that cannot darken. You are a soul that shines through. You are the eternal amid the moment. You are awakening. You are love." -Creig Crippen
  10. "Spirituality is recognizing and celebrating that we are all inextricably connected to each other by a power greater than all of us, and that our connection to that power and to one another is grounded in love and compassion. Practicing spirituality brings a sense of perspective, meaning and purpose to our lives." -Brene Brown

"They are the chosen ones, who have surrendered. Once they were particles of light, now they are the radiant sun."

— Rumi

Whether one is grounded in a specific type of religion or not, we are all spiritual beings. I loved every one of these quotes. I agree with your last sentence. "Love and empathy for others, are the two great outcomes of spirituality."

Misbah Sheikh from The World of Rebels. on May 07, 2021:

Amara, this is a beautiful article. I love this quote of Rumi

"What hurts you, blesses you. Darkness is your candle. Your boundaries are your quest. Failure is the key to the kingdom within. When you are anxious or worried, be patient. The key of patience opens the door of happiness. You suppose that you are the lock on the door, but you are the key that opens it." — indeed patience plays big role. And failure is the key to real kingdom, no doubts. A person who have never fallen, can never know how to stand up.

You have ment A beautiful quote of Sri Chinmoy

“Science has the capacity to show mankind the full development of the mental life. Spirituality has the capacity to show mankind the possibility and inevitability of the life beyond the mind, the supra-mental life."

This is beautiful. Science can help us understand the development of mental life. I wish, If manatita were here to see it, he would be very glad to see you quoting Sri Chinmoy.

Sri Chinmoy is manatita’s guru.

All of the quotes are beautiful. Spirituality does bring hope in life and I believe we all are the seekers of spirituality.

Blessings and lots of love
