A useful and effective spiritual teaching naturally leads to experiencing your nature, desires, intentions and acute awareness of your blockages, resistances and uncomfortable zones. Working in the here and now, it moves you in a way which will seem revolutionary and super fast.
Welcome to the world of spiritual teaching! A socio-economic-political battle ground, now marketplace, fought over by the biggest fish on the planet. What have these sharks to offer you with their baited red herrings in the way of self-illumination, enlightenment and spiritual freedom? Nothing. In fact, the opposite: enslavement to the craziest, weirdest and very occasionally fantastically wonderful ideas on the planet.
Enlightenment, as I know it to be, is not an ideology but a permanent change in experiencing existence, which, although it effects the mind's conceptual view of reality, it's effectiveness does not come from belief, concept or a body of knowledge.
Enter the frauds and the fakes who have shaped Enlightenment into an intellectual "medicine", to be gulped down in barely digestible conceptual dosages which contain absolutely no existential nourishment for the soul. Your soul wishes to experience life as it fully is. Mental fantasy and belief focus the soul's awareness on mental activity, thereby missing your present human life, real relationships and the wonders of Creation.
A belief package in what ever form: traditional = religion, relatively modern = spiritual, this year's trend = New Age -- is simply a fanciful virtual world, a do-it-yourself homebrew computer game cartridge, where you get to play at ascending to higher levels of awareness with in your own fantasy world. You can even co-join your fantasies with others in actual designated spiritual role play areas characterized by spiritual hierarchies. Spiritual development does not involve imaginary levels, hierarchies or awards - even if they are fun, they are just games, there are no real rewards, no awakening.
Where does this negating information take the genuine spiritual seeker? It's hard to climb out of the slime trap of slippery spiritual ideas, to give up the addiction to religious fantasies and to be your own person without outside definitions or assurances - but you will want to know yourself as having been always outside of these forms, which, like an insect in a Venus fly-trap you fell into.
A useful and effective spiritual teaching naturally leads directly to practically experiencing your nature, desires, intentions and acute awareness of your blockages, resistances and uncomfortable zones. It's working in the here and now, not working for reward in some imaginary future. It moves you ahead one sure step at a time in a way which will seem revolutionary and super fast. A valid spiritual teaching puts you in the driving seat and makes you aware that you have all the resources to move through with temporal life with grace, ease and certainty.
Enlightenment, self-awareness of all the true parts of you, is your birthright and destiny. Join me on Sunday and every Sunday to iron out the crinkly wrinklies which obstruct your bright awareness, and connect to the inner spiritual Transmission which makes all things clear as daylight.
