Is there really a difference between mental and spiritual?

I think that in the essence there isn't; in the state of mind there is.

I see people who do meditations but are declared atheists (e.g. many of the people who storm the Osho ashram in Puna), I see people who go to a psychologist and analyze their problems based on past events while others go to their gurus and analyze their problems based on past lives events...

There is a difference and there isn't...

Personally I feel that when you remove god, paranormal, supernatural from the scene and live by the what-you-see-is-what-there-is reality then it is not spiritual anymore. It is still a valid and efficient way of life but the spirit is not there anymore.

mental and spiritual

mental is the world created by a individual by his thoughts and thinking and spirituality is super natural beyond mind and thought.

spiritual mind acrobatics

"Personally I feel that when you remove god, paranormal, supernatural from the scene and live by the what-you-see-is-what-there-is reality then it is not spiritual anymore. It is still a valid and efficient way of life but the spirit is not there anymore."

True - there are spiritual people who are not spiritual a bit, that removed the spirit out of the spirit-uality like someone who is trying to love from the brain.

This should serve for us as a warning to always double check ourselves to make sure we did not lose the spirit in some spiritual mind acrobatics.

A good question - part of the problem and ineffectiveness of the western psychology is that it ignores and even denounces anything spiritual and paranormal - portraying them as tricks of the psyche to avoid confrontation with reality and so on.

Carl Yung and some others made some steps towards the parapsychology but not enough.

There are nowadays psychologists who combine spiritual practices and psychology.

We should ask guru

We should ask guru, what their mental state is and then get their spirtual state then the followers can understand that.

The difference between mental and spiritual is essential. Mental and mind are the ego trying to figure things out. The mind should be the servant of the spirit the master.

My guru doesn't analyze any problem. He makes sure we realize that there are no problems...just beliefs, ideas, concerns, attitudes and attachments and prejudices. He doesn't even talk about past lives. Ever.

When you remove god, paranormal, supernatural and live by the what-you-see-is-what-there-is reality, REALLY watch, not through your attitudes, your expectations, but really purely watch, you see that everything is divine, moving, alive. The mind cannot never perceive this. The mind wants action, problems, excitement!

I don't know what you call spirit. Is it possible that you are identifying with phenomenom and calling it spirituality?
If so, I suggest meditaton. It is the key to what is real.

difference between mental & spritual

The big difference between "MENTAL" and "SPRITUAL"
a SPIRITUAL person somehow accepts that i am MENTAL,
but a MENTAL person never accepts that i am MENTAL
