How do we balance spiritual and material life?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Spiritual and material life do not contradict each other. It is like the body and mind. The body needs materials and the mind needs spirituality. We are the combination of body and mind. One cannot exist without the other. Similarly, both spiritual and material progress is needed. It is a wrong notion that there is no material progress if one is spiritual.
