Just something I've been thinking about. Partially in relation to the question, what does spirituality even really mean? Now, there seems to be a
certain perspective that inherently implies spirituality. And that is who you are matters, in and of itself, for one reason or another. Without some
sort of spiritual perspective, you cannot conclude that who you are as a person matters. Objectively, who you are only matters in your relationship
with the world and people around you. If you make no impact, you are irrelevant. Who you are inside doesn't matter.
So, we grow and evolve as people, in ways that are meaningful. From a spiritual perspective, that matters. Be it karma, or some other intangible
spiritual principle, your internal processes are significant, whether or not it has objective external impact. One may say they are not spiritual, and
also say that who you are still matters, but I just can't see how some form of spirituality isn't implied by the idea that who you are internally
matters. And anyways, that is a way in which spirituality can help give meaning to life. I feel that I've grown a lot as a person over the last few
years, in ways that are significant. From a spiritual perspective, that matters. Otherwise, it only matters insomuch as it has external effects.
So, does who we are as a person matter? Is our internal process of growth significant in and of itself, or only as it relates to externals?
