We are talking of the Godly light.
Light stays connected to the source. Vessels are separate and provide a challenge to the light.
For the light to come there it has to be seen that light too has the ability to be in a strange environment. Keilim/vessels are creations that remain at a distance from their source. And this is enable to successfully import the light to a new strange place.
The vessels of atzilus have the qualities of atzilus wherever they may be. They are 'literally Godliness' (elokus mamash).
Spirituality and Godliness are different realities. Spirituality (ruchniut) has a basis and a means by which it is experienced. Godliness has no basis, no beginning, and no source.
