Dear Flower of the Lotus, Thank you for your posting. I always think getting everyone's defintions of terms is very important.
Although I've already given my defintion, I'll give it here again: Sprituality is Maya. It is a sub-division of Maya into a dualism of corporal (physical including energy) and spiritual. We experience items in the corporal division through our physical sense of touch (which is usually further divided into touch, sight, hear, taste, and smell). We experience spirutalism though our sense of imagination/intuition/soul/spirit.
