It's ironic that the idealistic/unrealistic way these spiritualities are portrayed has a lot to do with what draws people to them: those who are disillusioned with their experience of the world and see something refreshing and inspiring in the otherness. And yet, for me, my experience (of Christianity anyway) is that it is so rooted in the reality of every day experience (and the messiness that comes with it) that it's not funny.

It's disappointing that some people can't see beyond the dark-edged package that their spiritual message comes in, and you're right, the message wouldn't be anything without that package - it would be just like every other cliched delivery of spirituality in music.
