Capable of Dealing With Reality

“Spirituality is simply a means of arousing one’s spirit. Through it you begin to have greater contact with reality. You are not afraid of discovering what reality is about, and you are willing to explore your individual energy. You actually choose to work with the essence of your existence, which could be called goodness. An interest in spirituality doesn’t mean that you have a black hole in your existence which you are trying to cover over with some sort of religious patchwork. It simply means that you are capable of dealing with reality.”
