So, you profess to be spiritual. Are you the person who will not walk away from an argument because you must prove you are right? Do you make comment on others as to their way of life and their dress? Do you bemoan your lot and blame others for your problems? If you answered yes, to one of those questions, then you cannot profess to be spiritual.
You see a spiritual person has no judgment, does not blame others for their problems. Has no hate in their heart, and do not have to justify themselves to anyone. So many souls think that the path to the spiritual is easy. They expect reward and material possessions.
Being spiritual means letting go of all material needs, trusting that the spiritual realms will bring all that you need. Having total faith.
You can say "but Master, if I let go I will have nothing" and I will say to you, when you let go, we can then provide." Letting go of the Self is the hardest lesson of all.
Accepting the spiritual world is also very hard too. If you profess to be spiritual, you will allow us in the spiritual realms to help you. There is no need for effort, or to even try, because we will lead you and guide you every step of the way.
You just have to hold our hand without fear and without doubt. When you can do that, then you can say you are spiritual.
