Spirituality and Ordinary Life

Do you think spirituality is something purely transcendental? It’s questionable. Real spirituality might have something
to do with ordinary life. If spirituality does have something to do with everyday life situations, then relating to spirituality means contributing something to society as a whole. We have to associate with society in order to offer something to society.
