Any way of life or activity that trains us to take the attention off ourselves is worthy to be called spiritual. On the other hand, there are many things called “spiritual” which, practiced in the wrong way, can make us increasingly self-centered. Raising a family may be exhausting and seem to leave little time for specific “spiritual practice,” but it is all about other-centeredness. It is a good preparation for meditation.
