- Raw Naked Spiritual Teaching vs Powder Puff Poetry
How not to get trapped in the snooty boutique of fake spirituality.
There is a kind of spirituality - you can find it in popular books and stirring speeches. Unfortunately, it's not rare and you might have been infected by it without realising it.
The good news is that you can be decontaminated and inoculated - if you want. Or, like Lou Cipher in The Matrix, who sold his freedom for a plate of beef, you can go retire from the spiritual scene and never be heard of again.
Who knows maybe that is the right move for you and could even get you enlightened? After all, enlightenment is highly unpredictable and the unexpected move might do the trick, right? Wrong! In your dreams! That's the problem with dreaming. You have to stay asleep to do it.
Books are full of dreams. A dream is anything which is not real. Dreams are highly alluring and preclude any contact with reality. To dream, a cinema like illusion is required - light is shut out and everything is covered by a screen and curtains.
Getting to the point: pretty words and spiritual powder puff poetry are not the real thing. Never could be, never will be. I speak as a former spiritual comics addict. Fortunately, I have been clean for several decades. And, who knows, maybe detoxing my mind from spiritual junk contributed to my enlightenment, or on the other hand, maybe it did not. Different philosophies, like camcorder miniDV tape brands, don't mix well, in fact, they produce gunk which slows down the inner mechanism and inevitably closes, not opens, the doors of inner perception.
Well, it's hard to fully appreciate this dramatic rhetoric unless you have fallen into The Gunky Hole On The Spiritual Road. It's even tougher to get out. But "there but the Grace Of God go I".
Getting closer to the point: Real spirituality is vivid, palpable and invigorating. So, also, I hear, is v1@gr@, so don't get duped (and don't get spam-filtered). And, like sex, has very little to do with words and a whole lot to do with experience (there are always phone lines for the contrarians).
In this Sunday's online class I will:
- Point out the differences between real and sham spirituality.
- Explain how to diagnose whether your problems are related to conceptual misunderstanding and unrealistic fantasies.
- Introduce you to raw breathtaking spirituality, which once tasted means no more eating cardboard since you now know that you want the cornflakes inside the box more than the box itself - and, of course, I will show you how to find them.
This Sunday and every Sunday (almost - online classes go offline first 2 weeks of April for teaching in London over Easter. Feel free to visit London).
