The human spirit is the power to give form to our life and its corresponding formation field in a way that transcends an absolute determination [by materialist/social forces]...The apparent human ability to transcend purely mechanistic processes necessarily implies an underlying awareness of the mystery. This awareness and the forms it itself generates are the arena of traditional, pre-scientific discourse about human spirituality such as the various religious traditions.
To the degree that there are skills that may be learned and utilized in this process of transcendence we can talk of "spirituality" in a way similar to how we could talk about, say, "sociability" as referring to the degree of interpersonal skills a person may or may not know and utilize. In that this is always, essentially, the appearance of new forms, these skills are, in essence, similar to the skills of creativity.
The human, because of this apparent freedom-through-transcendence, does not necessarily generate, or give and receive forms that "fit in" or are experienced as consonant with other parts of experience. The forms we generate out of form reception and donation may elicit experiences of dissonance, of the parts of life not "fitting together". Indeed, due to the very presence of indeterminacy and unpredictability in human formation the human form is always in a state of some degree of dissonance. A healthy spirituality thus becomes the skills of minimizing this dissonance in so far as the degree of consonance or dissonance is related to the degree of awareness of, and manner of response to, the mystery.
The mystery "epiphanizes" or appears by means of all that is experienced. It "surrounds" us and is the element of consistency throughout the variety of experience. It is an essential and foundational component of the experience and observation of anything. Mystery thus becomes the primal, foundational experience, issue and concern of the human form. "Mystery is the best name for reality." It indicates not an absence, but an over-abundance.
