As a Christian, Muslim, freethinker, Buddhist, traditionalist etc what does spirituality mean to you?

When you hear the term spirituality, what do you think of? What crosses your mind?

WHAT COMES TO MY MIND WHEN I HEAR THE WORD 'SPIRITUALITY' DEPENDS ON THE CONTEXT ON WHICH THE TERM WAS USED. FOR EXAMPLE IF THE TERM'S USED IN CHRISTIANDOM, I THINK ABOUT BEING GODLY.BUT IF THE TERM'S USED IN PHYLOSOPHY OR PSYCHOLOGY, I THINK ABOUT ENLIGHTENMENT, THE SAME WORD CAN ALSO MAKE ME THINK COSULTATION OF THE ORACLES, OR GOING DIABOLIC, WHEN USED BY NATIVE PEOPLE

I think of it as the attempts we make to understand and harness the rather unknown aspects of our human minds and psyche. Some of these attempts are couched in religious language that make it seem faith based or exclusive but it is not. Take meditation, a technique that anybody can use and see results, not because of any spirits but it's like weightlifting for your mind.
