Until Latin, you have to leave to find the etymological origin of the mundane term that we are now going to analyze. And it is derived from "mundanus", which can be translated as "belonging to the world" and is made up of two distinct parts:
• The noun “mundus”, which is synonymous with “world”.
• The suffix “-ano”, which is used to indicate “membership”.
Mundane is a adjective which has its origin in the Latin term mundānus. The concept is often used to qualify the individual who is oriented to the earthly issues , leaving aside the spirituality or what symbolic .
For example: “I don't like to waste time with reflections or meditations: I am a worldly and simple man”, "My uncle spent many years in a monastery, until he preferred to focus on more mundane matters and went to work in a hospital", "Some analyze very complex issues and forget about worldly needs".
The notion of mundane is also used to name the human being that privileges the carnal or earthly pleasure and everything related to parties and the Good Life : “I gave myself to worldly life and now I attend cocktails and banquets on a daily basis”, “If you like worldly pleasures, you should join the celebration that Marcos will offer at his home”, “Our magazine is a true guide with tips to enjoy the mundane”.
Precisely based on that meaning, there is the term "worldly woman." This is used to refer to that woman who makes a living practicing prostitution.
The mundane, on the other hand, is associated with world usually. In this way, it can be said that a worldly man is a subject globetrotter , which toured various countries throughout his life and, therefore, is supposed to accumulate valuable experiences and have general knowledge about different cultures.
In the same way, it is customary to talk about what is known as worldly love. This becomes the love that is established in a real way between two people who love each other and maintain a relationship, which they can strengthen through a marriage or children in common, for example.
However, being a love that occurs in the earthly life of the human being can also be very painful. And it is possible that the person in question is not reciprocated or betrayed, in various ways.
In the face of that earthly love, let's say so, there is the so-called divine love. This we can say that it is both that a person feels for God and that which is considered to be received from God. Moreover, it is believed, on the part of religion, that the existence of man and woman is the best example of the love that the Almighty feels for the human species.
In a similar sense, it can be said that a style worldly musical It is one that combines influences from different geographical regions: "His worldly music surprised the public by the variety of rhythms".
