Going extreme is oftentimes an easy way out.
In Hebrew, the word me’od means ‘very’, but it also looks like the word mot, which means ‘death’. Whenever we become extreme, we are out of balance and we bring chaos into our lives.
This is also true for spirituality.
It is very easy to go completely spiritual; it is also very easy to stay completely non-spiritual. The hard thing, is to find a balance in-between.
That is, to live spiritually in a non-spiritual world.
