“While many modern approaches to spirituality tend to focus on the health benefits of meditation that dumb down the practice too much, and traditional practices often require the acceptance of metaphysical dogmas that are very hard to justify rationally or even in conflict to a modern scientific understand of the world, I believe the true purpose of meditation is to truly wake up from the unhappy dream you call your life, not to lower your blood pressur in that dream.

The purpose of spiritually for me is to radically transform the sense of what life is all about.
