Major problems arise in this world due to the same corrupt attitude followed by many humans. Creating a balance between the body and soul is vital and this can be achieved with Spirituality.

The body comprises of the food we intake while the soul conceives a lot of in-depth information of all that it sees in and around the world. Every person’s understanding of the body as known but materialistic and the soul as unknown but divine is important. Lacking this understanding will thus lead to life becoming incomplete.

Self – Effort is Not Everything
