Material Existence vs Spiritual Existence: Finding Balance

Have you ever questioned your existence and your tendencies? Why should am I doing something? Simply to unmask the real you.

It seems that our society defines our existence based on our profession and what we do. Any personal interests outside of work are labeled as hobbies or extracurricular activities. This mindset is instilled in us from our school days and carries over into our professional lives. Our worth is measured by our position, status, wealth, and possessions – things that are tangible, material, visible, flauntable, and cherishable. This belief is rooted in the idea that having more material possessions will bring greater happiness.

In today’s world, it’s easy to get lost in the pursuit of material success. The accumulation of material possessions and the desire for more can leave us feeling unfulfilled, empty, and spiritually drained and we never talk about it as we wear a mask of materiality for our world and slowly starts accepting it as our true self, our true identity, or instead our only identity. Someone asked me: “Who are you?” Instantly the answer came, I am a Banker. That is me my material identity. But there’s another way of existence, a way that is more aligned with our true selves, what we are born as, aligned to soul which has no identity. That is our spiritual selves.

Did I say Spiritual?? What is this? I can’t see it? Where can I buy it from? How much is it? Does it mean my religion? Is it like Yoga? We can’t accept its existence as we have never experienced it. It is similar to the way we mask our extracurriculars, hide our true personal side to fit into the professional culture to attain the so called success.

Throughout our lives, we strive to accumulate material wealth, which can provide temporary pleasure while we are alive. In the end, these things are not permanent and can never provide lasting satisfaction. The endless cycle of acquisition and consumption can lead to a sense of emptiness, disconnection, and inability to connect with our inner selves, our real existence, which is our Spiritual Existence. It is extremely important to balance Materiality and Spirituality. When we focus solely on material existence, we tend to lose sight of what truly matters in life.

We struggle with our lives, as Pro-Life pulls us towards material existence and thus our Per-life loses its existence. We forget that our time on this planet is limited and that our legacy will not be determined by the amount of wealth or possessions we acquire. Instead, our legacy is defined by the impact we have on others and the world around us. The constant desire for more and more material possessions leads to a never-ending cycle of consumption that can never be satisfied. We end up becoming slaves to our possessions, constantly worried about protecting and acquiring more. The pursuit of material success can also lead to a disconnection from our inner selves and our true values.

A few days ago, I wrote about miseries at our workplace, it is all driven by we the people, who are focused on material existence completely ignorant of our real purpose and driven by our likes and dislikes, resulting in insecurities, worries, and fear. Why do you think that last few generations are so anxious, why our mental health is on a decline? Why professionals in their choice of work are unhappy. We are know but are still Ignorant.

The real existence is, Spiritual Existence. It is about finding yourself, unmasking the real me, finding peace within us and connecting with our higher selves. It is about recognizing that we are part of something greater than ourselves and living our lives in accordance with our spiritual beliefs, driven by the Law of Cause & Effect. It is about finding meaning in life and living in alignment with our purpose. What is the purpose of our lives? I have asked this question earlier as well. Is it only material possessions? Accumulate wealth that can be passed on to generations, so called trans-generational wealth transfer. Or we want trans-generational legacy transfer. It is all about balance. The cart-well of our lives has two wheels – Spiritual and Material. Spiritual is real, whereas Material is Maya. If you balance your life the spiritual side of you will create awareness and you will be guided by your wisdom to have faith, security, and higher vibrations to drive your ProPer growth.

Finding a balance between material and spiritual existence is essential for our overall well-being. It is about recognizing the value of material things, while also understanding their limitations. It is about knowing that our spiritual growth and development are equally important and require attention and nurturing. As we navigate through life, our journey from awareness to action, it is important to remember that the pursuit of material success should not come at the cost of our spiritual growth. We must strive for balance and harmony between the two, allowing ourselves to exist in a state of contentment, happiness, and spiritual alignment.

I can talk about this now as life gave me a lesson, which transformed my thinking. Ultimately, spiritual existence is a deep, personal journey, and there are many paths that can lead us to greater spiritual fulfillment. I chose mine and so can you. It is about finding what resonates with you, and following your own unique path to greater self-awareness, inner peace, and connection to the divine.

Oh, did I say Divine?! We will talk about this some other time. Right now, let us be aware, think and act accordingly.
