How about the thrill of the adventure?

I can only define (or at least try to define) my own spirituality. As I see it, there are as many definitions of spirituality as there are individuals. For any one individual, there may be as many definitions as there are days in the year. Spirituality is not a thin veil for judeo-christian religions in that these religions attempt to create a single definition for all.
