Spirituality is also defined as a capacity and tendency that is innate and unique to all persons. The spiritual tendency moves the individual toward knowledge, love, meaning, peace, hope, transcendence, connectedness, compassion, wellness, and wholeness.
Spirituality includes one's capacity for creativity, growth, and the development of a value system.
Spirituality is a factor that contributes to health in many persons — its concept is found in all cultures and societies.
It is an innate tendency toward meaning — it is expressed in an individual's search for ultimate meaning through participation in religion and/or belief in God, family, naturalism, rationalism, humanism, and the arts.
It is expressed in four areas of activity taking place (a) at the level of self, (b) other persons, (c) the natural environment, and (d) the unseen order.
