It is an ongoing process of surrender and obedience to the Lord.
A person who is spiritually mature has sacrificed all the luxuries and comfort of the world and is righteous in actions and words.
I think A mature brain can embody a balanced developed of left and right hemispheres and complete association and complicated approach to communications with the material of Consciousness.
The spiritual maturity can see in rare peoples and may be they will be a Sanyasi or Sadhu. According to Bhagavt geetha it is telling that the god is nothing and no need to pray or anything after getting a level of a spiritual. Also most of people will not accept this but the fact is that Geetha says that god is not an image or idol it in side of you. I think the people really understood that what , where is the god, they are the real spiritual matures.
Every religion in the world has same destination;same theme;same target. Every religion guide its followers to reach at final destination i.e. to dissolve him into God so that there is no difference between person & God. Only God prevails.This can be attained by reciting God name given by God repeatly through the life adn following rules of his religion. If any body has attained this position in his life then it can be said that he has attained religious maturity.
He in that case respects every religion as he sees God everywhere and in everybody. He though strictly follows rules/principles of his religion still he regards every religion and everyone. No religion teaches us to hate others. It is our shortsightedness that we think our religion is supreme and others' are not. Then the problem arises. The rules & regulations of every religion have basically same theme/moto. We must read Bhagwat Gita, Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Quran, Bible and other religious books. It will widen our approach towards our religion and religions followed bo others. Almost every religion has three basic principles
(1) Do Labour ( Kaam Kro; Phal ki echha mat kro)
(2) Remember God (Remember God every moment of life, Naam Jpo)
(3) Help Others (Share our things with others for good cause)
If anybody follows these rules in his life then he has attained spiritual maturity.
God is inside as well as outside us.
The inner voice that guides us and conducts our behaviour to stay within the moral norms is spiritual maturity. Some people gain this maturity at an early age while some attain it on getting aged and some unfortunate ones never do. The attainment of spiritual maturity is not age dependent. It is thought dependent and also depends on the ethics that a person may follow. The level of this maturity can differ from person to person.
Spiritual maturity in my opinion is to reach that level of meditation and prayers where one finds one self very near to God. Such a person has no interest of worldly pleasures but tries to be consistent with God in thoughts, words and deeds.
Spiritual maturity is more felt than expressed. It is a phase when a balance is struck between the material body which can be destroyed and the soul or spirit that cannot be destroyed. Food is an essential requirement of the body similarly meditation is an essential requirement of the soul. Such a person can feel the presence of God closely.
My post in this thread was placed on 'pending'. I have corrected the issues, but the post is still on 'pending'.
I am not sure if I should have posted the corrected version as a fresh entry. Kindly advise.

The one who becomes mature this way believes in all the religions as they see the same power is generated by way of worshipping any and all forms of God. God is one but we have given them different names according to our language and beliefs.
The policy & system of every religion have essentially same subject and the ultimate verses can be read in the holy books like Bhagwat Gita, Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Quran, Bible and further more religious books. It will broaden our loom towards our religion and religions followed by others.
Every religion teaches us to do our duty and leave the rest to God, be dutiful and faithful towards the responsibilities of your life, always pray to God and be generous to all. Love all the beings in your life and the life will become smooth and happy as ever. Try the methods out and you and all of us can become RELIGIOUSLY MATURE IN THIS BIRTH ONLY.
Jesus Christ showed the path to spiritual maturity through His life. When one is able to surrender wholly to Him and accept Him as the Lord, He begins work in us.
"Give the world the best you have, and the best will come back to you"
Again religion and Spirituality are different words. Religion is linked to Religious whereas Spirituality is inclination towards ultimate truth. Religious person may not be Spiritual. And many times those who attended spirituality are not religious.
Its more or less like secularism , where everyone has his/her religion, but no religion is preached.
