    (quote Steve Pavlina)
    Now we've supposedly left the territory of the intellect and entered the spiritual realm. We try to interact intelligently with our outer world and spiritually with our inner world.

    Here Steve Pavlina is simply confusing the term intellect, ponder over his own example. Spirituality needs intellect, the basic reason they seem to differ is because a part of intellect follows other realms of life like reasons or science and that part keeps struggling to understand the unknown realm. When that part is subdues either with close experience of the enlightened one or due to growing up towards spiritual realms,same intellect becomes useful in this regard.. Without intellect, there is no chance of spiritual ecstasy either. Interestingly in spirituality, "Gyaan" knowledge is vtal for its experience.

    Never felt so better with such a small group of words, in fact credit goes back to you. Music is for those who can enjoy it.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
