Break out of that shell!

Every prayer that seeks to break out of self-limiting fears and behaviors and to welcome a spiritual view—a God-view of unchangeable, spiritual good beyond the seeing, touching, tasting, feeling, and smelling of matter—expresses spiritual sense.

Just what is spiritual sense? 

To me, one answer lies in chicks and eggs. How does a chick know to peck out of the shell? He knows that something exists beyond his physical limits. This innate knowing motivates him to peck for something better. If he simply accepted a limited material sense of things, he might consider his shell to be his lot in life and stay inside. Perhaps he would settle for the most comfortable position possible in the shell.
