What Is True Spirituality?
True spirituality is what connects man /woman to the Highest, to the Supreme Center. It connects you to Truth, to the Real, to the invisible, intangible Source of everything. It will show you your real place in this life, not what you may wish it to be, but what it is now and will become one day. Here follow some quotes from DRG.
”True spirituality depends on the transcendent domains, on the metaphysical line of thought, on realization through asceticism and renunciation, on the implementation of tedious and patient work toward perfection, on the respect for the texts of “Revelation” and on the respect for the exoteric traditional authorities, who have the responsibility to keep the depository and to interpret the meanings.”
”Concerning the esoteric level, an initiatory attachment is obviously a prerequisite before any undertaking, for he alone can give "spiritual influence" (which is) required for entry in the Way.”
This means that only a regular initiated spiritual master can inspire with an initiation (with a spiritual influence - al-barakah ) so that you can follow a spiritual practice which is life-nourishing thanks to this spiritual influence and it therefore becomes meaningful.

True spirituality depends:
→ on the metaphysical line of thought (for the transcendent domains)
→ on realization through asceticism and renunciation

→ on the respect for the texts of “Revelation”

And concerning the esoteric level it depends:

• beyond or above the range of normal or physical human experience: the search for a transcendent level of knowledge.
• surpassing the ordinary; exceptional: her transcendent beauty.
• (of God) existing apart from and not subject to the limitations of the material universe. Often contrasted with immanent.
