The meaning of word “Spirituality” is not understood by everyone. It's meaning can only be understood by the people who have calm and clear-sighted intellect and who are leading a well-disciplined life. The essence of spirituality lies in the self growth and self realization. It is in the love that religion exist, not in the ceremony. Unless a man is pure from his heart, his worshipping to God is useless. External worship is only the symbol of internal worship, but internal worship and purity are the real things. Therefore, you must always remember this.

The universe comes out of the union of two fundamental forces: matter (that which gives shape) and consciousness. These are also respectively known as the manifested form and the invisible enlivening spirit. Both have their own merits when considered in isolation; however, it is the union and co-operation of these two entities that works wonders. The human body is a very good example of this fact.

The body is an integrated form of various organs, muscles, nerves, arteries, veins etc., and can be used to accomplish any desired work but is non-functional without consciousness. The consciousness part of man (termed "the soul") thinks, decides and directs organs towards a particular task. The separation of consciousness from matter results in death. A dead body is useless since it is not functional. In the absence of consciousness, it rapidly decays and its constituting elements eventually dissolve into their cosmic states.

In essence, it is the association of matter and consciousness that gives rise to functionality. Matter alone, otherwise, is unorganised and of very little use even though it is present in abundance in the universe. For example, water is plentiful in oceans but is too salty. The atmosphere is full of gases, electro-magnetic rays, X-rays etc. but these components are not useful on their own. It is the human intervention, or alternatively the intervention of developed consciousness, that organises matter so that it can be useful. Fire and electricity were present in the universe since times immemorial, but man's intelligence organised these entities in a utilisable form.

Thus, although the components of Nature are powerful in their own right, their usefulness has depended on the inventive skills of human consciousness. 

The discovery of the powers of Nature, their organisation and the skills that make them useful to man is called science. Science can thus be called the unison of matter and consciousness. Science has made possible the progress of the human civilisation. It should be noted that the knowledge of the use of matter is not enough; its righteous use should also be considered.

Balance development of these two i.e.,Science and Spirituality makes road for total progress.
