Abstract

Spirituality is a strong aspect of human experience. In order to have meaning, purpose and value of life, it is a necessity to have a sense of connection and positive relationship to the superpower, self, others and nature. Spirituality is a strong human experience aspect. To have meaning, purpose and value of life, it means a sense of connection and positive relationship to the superpower, self, others and nature. Will happiness be assured until material and spiritual meetings are linked and coordinated? The civilization that is solely based on material development is not, in a real sense, a civilization. The advancement of material and spiritual civilization should unite, then together they are like the light and the lamp and the result will be perfect. For material, advancement is like unto a beautiful body, and spirituality is like unto the spirit of life that actually gives meaning, purpose and value to the beautiful body. If that phenomenal spirit of life enters this beautiful body, the body will become a channel for the distribution and development of the perfections of humanity. This paper is a conceptual review, aims to address the importance of empowering spirituality in our human life by answering the question on how can humanity build up a civilization based on spiritual treasuries?

Keywords: Spirituality, Human Civilization, Meaning, Purpose and Value of Life
