Good points, Elrond. I'll also say, focusing on this kind of spirituality doesn't automatically create balance either. Lots of spiritually-minded folks could do with being more active than they usually are.
There's a tendency to move up and out of the body for the spiritual experience, instead of moving down and in and letting heaven (or bliss or peace or etc.) come to you. That's not wrong by any means, but there's also upsides to keeping your awareness with yourself and letting the beauty or the exotic experience come to you from that place.
