-Thanks!

Spiritualism is what we follow religion for, though usually we get stuck in religion becoming highly religious but poor spiritually.

I think spirituality can be compared to a banana and religion to the banana skin. The banana skin or religion holds the banana or spirituality, but most usually hold on to the banana skin.

Eat the fruit and drop the skin away. This is what one have to do, but usually one does not and keep on clinging to the skin.

RE: What is Spirituallsm?
The first or uppermost class is described as follows: one is very expert in the study of relevant scriptures, and he is also expert in putting forward arguments in terms of those scriptures. He can very nicely present conclusions with perfect discretion and can consider the ways of devotional service in a decisive way.
This first-class devotee is one who has strictly followed the rules and regulations under the training of a bona fide spiritual master and has sincerely obeyed him in accord with revealed scriptures. Thus being fully trained to preach and become a spiritual master himself, he is considered first-class. A first-class devotee never deviates from the principles of higher authority, and he attains firm faith in the scriptures by understanding with all reasons and arguments. When we speak of arguments and reason, it means arguments and reason on the basis of revealed scripture. The first-class devotee is not interested in dry speculative methods meant for wasting time. In other words, one who has attained a mature determination in the matter of devotional service can be accepted as the first-class devotee.
The second-class devotee has been defined by the following symptoms: he is not very expert in arguing on the strength of revealed scripture, but he has firm faith in the objective. The purport of this description is that the second-class devotee has firm faith in the procedure of devotional service unto God, but he may sometimes fail to offer arguments and decisions on the strength of revealed scripture to an opposing party.
