When spirituality comes up, most people think, "church stuff."  Yet, the center of all thought and activity is spirit. A robot sees a rock, it breaks down the physical properties and identifies it. A human being gives it value, meaning and finds purpose. The meaning and purpose placed upon objects and people derive from the inner being, the sanctum where all Air Force pillars: mental, physical and social attain worth.



Spirituality gives significance and energizes everything else, yet it is often the most neglected. Improving spirituality begins with self-reflection and clarifying core values. Often, practices within faith, positive perspectives of others, and meaningful literature and songs illuminate core values, purpose and meaning giving an individual energy, peace of mind, and courage in diverse situations.
