Meaning is one of those overview terms that seems to sum up the spiritual life. Many people, in fact, define spirituality as the search for meaning and purpose. But this is also a specific practice that can be learned, developed, and applied. It involves both seeking and making.
Seek meaning by looking for the big picture encompassing your experiences. Watch for patterns in the world and in your own behavior. Make meanings by attaching analogies, metaphors, symbols, and stories to things and events. See what messages come to you when you regard them in this way.
Expose yourself to the various values assigned to everyday life by the popular culture, philosophy, and the world religions. Learn more about how you can understand things. Take a course. Go to a lecture. Listen to an audio book.
