Our spirits flourish when we share a piece of ourselves with each other
Even outside the confines of religion and belief in the supernatural, we can define spirituality a person’s connection to something greater than ourselves, which can include a sense of purpose, meaning, or transcendence.
A “whole person” is greater than the sum of their body parts. Perhaps a good way to characterize “spirit” is when two or more persons become greater than the sum of their individuality – like a band finding the groove or a group finding team flow.
There is something greater that emerges when we are able to harmonize with each other beyond a mere transactional exchange. Maybe organizational theorists would could this morphogenetic cycle “culture”; but maybe we are already intimately familiar with this entity that we can call as “spirit”.
Matthew 7:7-12. Do to others whatever you would have them do to you.
