We live in a material world in which money, science and technology are ever present. Though technology is supposed to make our lives easier and more connected, for some reason the opposite is true. For example, we are more connected via social media, yet we feel more lonely and isolated. In addition, we have more creature comforts and entertainment, yet we are more depressed and anxious. This begs the question. Do we have technology or does technology have us? The Solution: Breathing techniques, yoga, meditation, prayer, spiritual knowledge, family time, reading, writing, hiking, communal activities etc. Spirituality: Everyone is technically spiritual by nature of the fact that the 3Dimensional part of ourselves is only a small part of our existence. While some people hardly give thought to their higher selves, other people spend a lot of time and energy on their spirituality to the point that it even spills over into engaging in dialogue about it on Reddit. Meditation: Additionally, there are people who have a meditation practice that they set aside time for every day. While meditation can be a spiritual experience, it also has many practical qualities. Meditation is documented to lower blood pressure, stimulate the immune system and help with focus. What is Spirituality? “Spirituality is a broad concept with many perspectives. In general, it includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and it typically involves a search for meaning in life. As such, it is a universal human experience—something that touches us all.” Taking Charge of Your Wellbeing - University of Minesota What is Meditation? “Meditation is the process of quieting the mind in order to spend time in thought for relaxation or religious/spiritual purposes. The goal is to attain an inner state of awareness and intensify personal and spiritual growth. In practice, meditation involves concentrated focus on something such as a sound, image or feeling.” Yogapedia. The purpose of this project is to get a sense of the types of words and language that are used when people discuss spirituality and meditation.
