Do you believe spirituality is simply "emotional intelligence"? If you meditate to shift your emotions, without expectation of change in your outer world, is that really a spiritual practice? If you look at the world as solid and use spirituality to shift the neural filters you use to navigate it, doesn't that make your quest meaningless? Is your spirituality the atheist materialist's emotional intelligence? Do you live your life under "practical", "real world" principles which are divorced from what you believe to be spirituality?
This reminds me of what I heard of some people that said as they left from church. "It's too bad that stuff doesn't work in the real world."
If they feel that way, then I have no idea why they even bother coming to church. If they believe this stuff only works in the spiritual world, then they lost the point.
Thought controls energy, energy forms into matter. We could look at the spiritual world and the "real world" as simply different frequencies of energy existence.
As gears turn all together, when one moves all move. Think of a bicycle and the gears, the large gear turns the small gear. But what happens if you turn the wheel. Now the small gear turns the large gear.
They can not work independently of each other. Something in the spiritual affects something physical, something physical affects something spiritual.
There is no separation even though most believe that we only experience the physical.
if no spiritual spark

It's part of a widespread belief that there is a physical world separated from an inaccessible invisible world and that only religious leaders can contact these hidden higher powers, god if you prefer. We can experience and therefore know other realities.
Our physical bodies are linked to a psychic system that allow us to experience physical reality through our five senses ... the other half, so to speak, this psychic system is the invisible part that we often name the higher self ... our physical reality is a direct reflection of our deeper,inner self and these two halves are controlled by a double force flow, that is, the law of attraction. Once we become fully conscious of this action/reaction effect then we obtain access to multidimensional realities.
Here is a 12 minute video by David Marshall on the subject of the nature of the higher self and a lot more
love at work :)
