Spiritual Vs Material:
No matter what you achieve, there will always be someone who will be one step ahead of you. This is especially true today, when things are changing so quickly. In just a few years, people are accomplishing what took prior generations ten, fifteen, or twenty years to accomplish. Future generations might look at your whole life’s work and say, “What nonsense is all this? All this effort was not even necessary.” With advancements in technology and the awareness of what is happening in the world, future generations can erase your entire life’s work in a snap.
This is why you need to have a balanced understanding of life. This balance should start from within, and not from the outside. You should be your first priority. How you understand and take care of yourself is the most important thing; spirituality is all about you. Spirituality should neither be taken as seriously as religion or as casually as a hobby. It is simply an adventurous journey you undertake to recognize the fact that you are the center of your life, and everything else is secondary.
Spirituality is all about rearranging your house; the house where your Self resides. Everything you need is already in your house. Your mind and body contain answers for all the questions of your life, but you have lived your life so unconsciously, so chaotically, that nothing within you is organized. Within this house, you don’t know where things are, what their real meanings are, or what their purposes are. Your internal landscape is a jumbled mess of experiences. Spirituality is a process of entering this house and rearranging everything so that you can make sense of your life.
