Spiritual versus Material are not the choices. Everything about this physical manifestational experience is spiritual. It is all the end product of spirit. You have nothing to prove. Be the spiritual you and create like a physical fiend.

This quote comes from a Daily Affirmation By Abraham Hicks. The message here certainly deserves some examination.
Even when I was in seminary, and when I was a Licensed Local Pastor in the United Methodist Church, I disagreed with the idea of rejecting the physical now, in favor of the spiritual someday. I understand this doctrine is a fundamental part of Christian doctrine; nevertheless, I found myself unable to conceive of a God who made this beautiful world, and our incredible bodies and minds, so that we could reject them. If God expected us to ignore the material, I believe God’s creation of the physical would be far less interesting, and certainly not a place where the opportunity to learn never ends.
Here’s more. I believe, with all my self, that I could never again draw a line between my existence as a body in this plane, and my spirit, because they are not separate. As we read from Abraham, above, the physical body we inhabit is spiritual. We need not search for our spirituality — it is part of our everyday existence.
In fact, spirituality is the root of our everyday existence, and our physical selves are the result. In spirit, we each called for the body we inhabit; just as the law of attraction promises, our spirit calling brings a spiritual answer — this vessel, this ability to exist on a physical plane. Together, these two elements of spirit combine to call a more joyful, a holier and more fulfilling existence for each of us, if we only let the magic happen.
