Would you agree with the suggestion below that it is 'the ultimate goal of philosophy'?
From wiki:https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secular_spiritualityAccording to Robert C. Solomon, an American Professor of Philosophy, "spirituality is coextensive with religion and it is not incompatible with or opposed to science or the scientific outlook. Naturalized spirituality is spirituality without any need for the 'other‐worldly'. Spirituality is one of the goals, perhaps the ultimate goal, of philosophy."
Philosophy, like science, just tries to answer the age old question asked by human beings ever since they could ask questions - what is actually going on?
My favourite moment of secular spirituality was Neil deGrasse Tyson walking out of the clouds, palms splayed, pronouncing breathlessly: We are made from star stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff .... Aside from enjoying the showmanship, emotionality, visual effects and satire, there are few deeper truths to contemplate about the nature of reality.
