What Is Spirituality?

By Pamela J. Wells

Spirituality is not “New Age,” nor is it a religion. Spirituality comes from the root word “Spirit.” Spirit is not limited by time and space—the body is. Spirit existed before language and thoughts were formed, before religion. To live a spiritual life is to live from spirit, from your true nature of peace and joy—and not from the egoic mind that creates separation, pain and suffering. 

Some other terms used to describe spirit include: pure awareness, pure consciousness, essence, pure being, self (the true self, not the egoic, imaginary “I” self that becomes attached to notions and things) and formless existence-consciousness.
