Here are the distinctive features of both the material and the spiritual aspects of our life.
As far as the material world go, what is governing us is our predilection to things like sound logic, strong reason and common good. Not only that we are happy to question material matters, but also help and encourage others to do so. As a result, those progressive, flourish.
But, when it comes to the spiritual world, the aim is to prevent at any cost, changes to our ancient notions. Also, notwithstanding our objections, if a few continue with their attempts, they are sure to face the society’s wrath. That too, of a scale much beyond what is given to the most horrendous crimes. And I think we consider it more or less normal, if that exposes them to large scale violence and death, in addition to public display of anger and hatred. In short, in the spiritual world, those progressive, suffer.
Why should it happen this way? Are we deriving something totally different, from each? Published ‘hubs’ on these.
