People think that spiritualization is abstraction, a state in which you are lost for yourself and for others.
Spirituality is a state of awareness, not oblivion. It is an expanding, a progressively more inclusive awareness -- not "spacing-out."
I met a fool who said he is in this world but he lives in the ultimate reality. Whenever we asked him about what the ultimate reality was, he said, "I can't tell you because I don't know."
"Then how do you know that you are in ultimate reality?"
"Impossible to explain."
"Then what is the use of it?"
He lived as a beggar, and died as a beggar in "ultimate reality."
