Does One Need Sparkles To Feel Spiritual?

Since recorded times, we have been attracted like bees to nectar to the bells and whistles of spiritual development. Many of us go to the church with the most dramatic display, such as the pomp and circumstances of the catholic church or the over-the-top singing and preaching of the baptist minister. In the spiritual world many are still attracted to pretty-pretty or morosely ugly. Lately, I was at an event where bells and whistles were the draw for the attendees. They were enticed by the display of bright colour, drumming and the sound of crystal bowls. Impressively costumed teachers were the draw for most. It got me thinking, do we.
