Material Spirituality

The secret in life is to take all the physical actions you do – from eating lunch, to going for a run, to being with family – and to do them for the sale of cleaving to Hashem. When you do that, you transform your animalistic spirit into a G-dly one. Your physical becomes spiritual.

This may be what the Steipler (r’ Yisrael Kanievsky) meant when he said to another person “your gashmiut is my ruchaniut,” that is to say, “when I help another Jew, even if it is in a mundane and worldly manner, this physical action gives me spiritual nourishment!”
