Spirituality, as the word suggests, is a dimension which dwells into the world of the spirit, or in simpler words, the etheric world. As per Sanatan Kriya, there exists not just our physical body, but beyond it, various bodies which are composed of a force or energy which is not solid but which exists as a subtle force made up of various colour combinations. These bodies interpenetrate the physical body and could be called the “Ether”. The study of this force in its various layers, aspects and dimensions is what spirituality is.
A major myth about spirituality is that it is actually a part of a religion. Religion is a code of conduct prescribed by certain highly evolved souls who had taken birth in the physical world at a time when they were needed for the benefit of the mankind. A particular group of people following a specific religion is actually following a way of life or a code of conduct and certain practices for their upliftment. No religion can be judged or commented upon by a human being. This domain belongs to the Almighty.
Another major myth is that listening to discourses of evolved people and spending time with them would grant you salvation, that is, take you to the subtlest layer of ether. It is definitely possible, but the possibility is very rare. How do you know that the person you are going to is not just another money-maker? The newspapers are full of stories of new-age, supposedly-evolved people indulging in acts which are considered not-so-pure and pious by the law of our country! Depending on the law of probability is a little risky in such situtations.
Another myth is that with spirituality, you can buy miracle cures to incurable diseases. The modern world is full of unscrupulous people who, in the garb of an evolved soul, make money out of the misery of people. There definitely exist, even in the present day world, certain evolved souls who with just one look or a slight touch, can bring back someone even after he has left the body. But then, such people are beyond the realm of the financial world and perform such an act only if it is the need of creation.
