I rather dislike spiritual people, spiritual things.
And I don’t agree entirely with the concept that prayer is a higher level.
I spoke a while ago about the idea of the material and the spiritual, and I think perhaps one may say that the thing that is wrong with Christianity is its preoccupation with the spiritual.
I think it is the beginning of every corruption.
You can also see it in Hinduism and in Hindu politics.
In the spirituality and the allegory of these religions, there is a corruption.
I don’t believe that the Lord is nearer to the spiritual realm than He is to the material realm.
I think to make Him a spiritual being is to belittle Him.
The common concept that prayer is a higher form of sacrifice is very clearly refuted in the prayerbook.
