I strive to remain in balance, that I try to act in a good and beneficial way towards myself and others. But I don't understand what you mean by "materialism or spiritualism". Could you elaborate?
I could indeed.
See, there's materialism, which focuses upon the needs and desires of the body, upon the rewards and consequences of physical stimuli, both internal and external.
Spiritualism is the focus of morals and the energy that pervades everything, in both our reality and others, and the source and flow and destination and path and strength and awareness of that energy. Spiritualism is the connection by which we are all one, the connection that distates whatever we do will be returned to us, and whatever happens will have an opposite and equal effect. It is the checks and balance of the invisible world, and it affects us every day. Unfortunately, we have an incomplete and sometimes entirely misguided understanding of this aspect of life.
We are either too focused on materialism these days, and those who are focused on spiritualism often believe that's all there is to know.
We have forgotten how young we are, and how much is left to learn...
