Spirituality “is ultimately about what we do with [our] desire…. Long before we [ever] do anything explicitly religious at all, we have to do something about the fire that burns within us. What we do with that fire, how we channel it, is our spirituality. Thus, we all have a spirituality whether we want one or not, whether we are religious or not.”
