For most, mental analysis is a way to solve the riddle of spirituality. This approach rarely leads to a satisfactory or lasting experience.
Without experiencing the warmth of the sun on your face, without hugging someone you love tightly against your chest, without experiencing starvation, you could analyze the rays of the sun in a physics lab, you could discuss love in a poetry class and you could join charity groups who have dedicated themselves to eliminating starvation. In the end, you will not experience, the sunlight, love or starvation.
Spirituality by definition is the intangible that brings life to the inanimate and the spark of intelligence to the mind. It is the ocean that makes up the fish and contains the fish. The fish remains unaware of the vastness of the qualities and the size of the ocean.
Instead of a mental approach, mystics have chosen to walk the path of experience to reach spirituality. A few fortunate ones have walked this path under the guidance of an experienced teacher who could show them the way and keep them away from unnecessary harm.
Those who walk the path to reach spirituality are too busy discussing it, they are living it with each act and demonstrating it with each breath. There is a lightness and joy about them that could uplift those around without words.
They focus their attention of Divine Love and service. They face life fully without fear or excuses. They speak in stories not to hide the truth, but to make it easy to remember and use.
Each of them tells a different story that is the same. Once the differences are set aside, the story always is a love story. They are in love with Spirit, with Life, with God.
Our search for spirituality is our search for Divine Love. Our question is answered once we find Divine Love without any barriers or illusions.
