It is not possible to experience spirituality firsthand without making a partisan choice and practicing some particular spirituality, for example a religion, a philosophy, an art, or even, for example, a sport. Despite this, it is possible to identify certain fundamental activities which are quite common to all types of spiritual experience and can be lived as an essential experience of spirituality, even without adhering to any particular spirituality. One of these fundamental practical activities is finding oneself in the presence of a person, followed by an opposite moment, that is, placing oneself in a situation of solitude and silence, preferably in a beautiful and serene naturalistic landscape, in which to meditate on what the previous experience produced in us.
To express this in even easier and more concrete terms we can say this: do you want to understand what spirituality is? Then stay close to someone, then separate in solitude and be silent. In silence you will be able to rethink what you felt while you were with that person or those persons and how the sensations of that being of yours alongside others still remain within you; you will be able to think about whether and how the presence of the other has influenced and continues to influence your life considered globally, especially from a point of view about its sense. These thoughts and feelings are spirituality.
