Behavioral condition where the individual is so lost in their spiritual terminology that the words they use lack substance on the physical plane. Confusion between spiritual terms and reality that leads to obnoxious behavior to other people.

This condition often leads to inconsistent behavior, lack of follow through, self image of inflated grandiosity, colorful lies about past accomplishments and/or experiences, and the triumph of a deluded image of the world and how it works over any practical understanding of the relationship of cause and effect.

Spiritual terms are often used to excuse oneself from accountability. The individual often casts negative judgements on others who refuse to go along with their world view and cloaks this judgement in language that attempts to bolster their own self image of spiritual superiority.

Can also be recognized by a distinct denial of the negative side of human experience and behavior and will often say phrases like, "It's all good". Afflicted individual may also use the phrase "Spirit told me" or "I have no ego" to evade personal accountability. This condition is often seen, but not limited to, New Age and/or Neo Pagan Spirituality.
