The spiritual side of life is referred to the supreme soul, soul, spirit, sensation, breath, heaven, hell, higher world, and the spiritual world, while the physical side of life refers to the body, brain, heart, and physical world.
The only physical world doesn’t give a clear idea about the process of life, while only with the spirituality the physical life, is not possible. You need a balance of both.
Spiritual life has its own rules, while physical life has its own. The truth is, the existence of physical life is possible only because of the spiritual life and this truth can only be understood when you realize your truth within the body.
Spirit and soul reside in the physical body and experience life in different forms. The physical life including the subtle and physical world.

The brain may create the different perception for you, through the senses, out of the five elements, but when you observe life directly through consciousness, you see everything out of its true nature.
Nothing deceives you with life, and everything appears out of its true nature. Breathe and sensation is part of the spirit. The spirit experience life through the body and governs the body through sensation.
The natural process of life takes place from inside out. Soul creates spirit and spirit forms brain, heart and body. When the spirit expands within the physical body, physical body too expands with the spirit.
The spirit along with the mind carries the past experience and impressions, and thus the quality of physical body, mind, and emotional wellbeing depends on the quality of experiences and impressions of the past.
The soul in the body is an empty space of higher vibrations, that allows the process of creation, sustenance, and destruction. Creation, sustenance, and destruction happen only of the physical form when the physical body dies and perish.
The spirit is a moving subtle thread that carries the sensation along with the spiritual or kundalini energy in the form of a subtle shape of a tiny little ball. The spiritual energy is directed by the direction of your attention.
If your attention moves outside, the movement of spirit, sensation, mind, heart, and body moves outward, and the spiritual energy allows the process of life to take place. When the same attention of the mind, moves inward, you move on the path of self-realization.
At the level of mind, when your desires ask you to move into the physical world, all the spiritual energy is directed outside to fulfill your desire.
When the same attention is directed inward towards breathe, sensation, thoughts, feelings and emotions, the spiritual energy that was fulfilling the desires of life, now serves you to understand the subtle as well as the physical reality of life.
The spiritual life begins when your attention shifts inward. The attention on breathing is the gateway, that can take you till the end, in realizing the spiritual energy inside.
The attention on the breath and sensation allows you to experience the self which is separate from your physical identity.”
The process of inflow and outflow of breath is possible because of the spirit in the body. Spiritual energy is locked at the bottom of the spine, and the subtle thread of spirit is so attached to the physical body, that it gets hard to realize the spirit when you try to understand with the mind.
“Only when the sensation gets separated from the physical body, you realize the spirit in the body.”
Breathe and sensation is a confirmation of spirit in the body. All the functions of the body, heart, and brain are possible because of the spirit.
At the level of the brain, it seems like life is happening because of the brain, but when you realize the detachment of spirit from the physical body, you unlock the spiritual energy and experience the pure space of consciousness within the body.
The subtle thread of the spirit can expand and contracts. When it expands, it functions through the body, heart, and brain and when it contracts it moves back to its source, i.e. pure consciousness.
The mind is the one, that acts as a bridge between spiritual and physical life.
It’s the spirit only, that looks for the purpose of his own existence and life as a whole.
When the spirit begins to unveil everything of the subtle world, it comes close to its personal self. More and more the attention moves inward, more and more it comes closer to unlock its spiritual energy. Once the spiritual energy gets unlocked it help the spirit to detach itself, from the body and experience the absolute truth of life.

The brain thinks, imagine things, create logic out of things, analyze and evaluate life, because of the subtle thread of the spirit, passing through the brain. The brain cannot functions on its own, unless the subtle thread of the spirit, works through it.
The role of the brain is to make alive the experiences and impressions recorded in the past, into the spirit. The process of brain, heart, and body initiates from the brain and ends with the body.
It’s not the brain, that stores the data, but the spirit that holds everything into it, in the form of experiences and impressions. Once the experience or impressions get registered into the spirit; it stays into the spirit.

The experiences and impressions don’t have an image, while it is present in the spirit, but only when the impression or experience comes in contact with the brain, the experience or impressions from the past gets alive.
You always have a choice, to either bring past experience and impressions, back into your life experience or completely wash off the past experience.
With life either on the spiritual or physical level, once you have the higher experience, you never tend to move back to the lesser experience.
With the mind, it may be possible that you repeat or expand the same experience, but with the spirit, if you have experienced something higher, you never tend to get to the lower experiences of life. The higher experiences become an integral part of your life.
With spirituality, truth is added to life, and with the truth, you never go wrong in life. The path of self-realization, only takes you higher and higher, closing the gap between the illusion and reality of life.
