Should a spiritual person not strive to earn more money? Should his demeanor always be nice and friendly? Should he always give up or give in? Do spiritual people finish last?
The answer to all these is a big fat ‘No‘!
As the great Swami Vivekananda said, a householder who does not strive to earn wealth is immoral. He further added that it is also immoral if this wealth is not shared!
Spirituality is not divorced from common sense and practical application. Spirituality is not in outward garb (ochre robes) either.
One can certainly hiss and roar, but doesn’t need to bite or fight.
Spirituality is a state of mind. One that is internally calm, in spite of the uncertainties of external life.
