Throughout life, we humans are exploring meaning, searching for it, and imposing it where we feel it doesn't exist. We cannot do otherwise; it's our very essence as human beings. We're creatures of meaning and the drive toward meaning comes from deep within — not just within ourselves, but also, . . . from deep within creation itself. In this context, therefore, spirituality is planetary (and cosmic) as well as personal — which may be another rendition of the feminist claim that the personal is political.
