“Are you ready to live in a wor...

“Are you ready to live in a world without fear or judgment?”

This is the lead sentence in a current ad for a very well known and popular “Spiritual Teacher”. The problem with this come-on (and the subsequent “let me show you how”), is that it’s misleading, unrealistic, and just downright silly in a pie-in-the-sky kind of way. If you REALLY want to be a TRULY “spiritual” person, meaning ‘awake’, ‘enlightened’, etc., then you must understand that we are human beings and we are designed to survive. We are designed to have fear and judgement. It is what keeps us alive.
 
Have we taken it to a ridiculous level? Yes.
Do we misunderstand it? Yes.
Should we completely banish it

#SpiritualBS : “If it doesn’t come easy, it wasn’t meant to be.”
 
This is a very common teaching among many spiritual teachers. It is simply (generally speaking) wrong.
 
The EASE that spiritual MASTERS speak of is ease of heart, ease of mind and ease of soul. Buddha sat for EIGHT YEARS under the bodhi tree before finding enlightenment. Do you really think that was easy? Christ was HUNG FROM A CROSS as his reward for trying to bring love into the world. Was THAT easy? It took Michael Jordan SEVEN YEARS to win a championship ring. Ya think that was easy? It took women in the U.S. almost EIGHTY YEARS of fighting just to earn the right to vote. Yeah…

Spiritual Manifesting: FAIL

Image resultIs the Law of Attraction/Manifesting not working for you?  Would you like to know why?

The answer is actually quite simple, but may seem incredibly complicated at the same time.  Y’know… like most of our spiritual lessons:  Simple when you get it, but crazy complex when you don’t.

When you begin to awaken, you become aware of an entirely new paradigm and perspective of the Truth in the world. But until you become a fully awakened Master, you are most likely still struggling with the balance between the spiritual and physical worlds.  They still seem very separate, even though you know there is no separation.

So you use the Law of Attraction (LOA) to manifest that new job, car, partner, … Read the rest

Superficial Spirituality

I’m always amazed at the depths we humans go to for the purpose of being superficial.

I realize that the complexity of that sentence will turn 90+% off and they will not read further. That is a shame, because those people will miss out on a very profound observation which will then lead to an even profounder learning.

So the observation that triggered this is rant actually one I’ve posted about on Facebook several times in the last few years: objectification in the name of spirituality, and conversely the avoidance of profound spiritual moments for the sake of superficiality.

Specifically all those memes of pretty, skinny white women in yoga poses or out in a field with some cool new-agey … Read the rest

Failing like a winner

failI know… I’ve been quiet lately.  I’ve been going internal and working on new things, mostly myself.  And for the most part, I’ve been failing miserably.

Last week, in the marvelous way the Universe works, I was looking for a birthday present for my teenage nephew and came across a book called No Summit Out of Sight, a true story about a 13 year old kid who climbed the 8 highest peaks in the world.  I bought a copy for myself as well.

I’m 51 years old, and aside from a truly fantastic relationship with my Bohemian Soulmate, I have absolutely nothing to show for my life. I eek out a living working a job that takes a … Read the rest

What you believe about yourself…...

thoughts-of-selfThere’s a popular teaching in spiritual circles that what you believe about yourself on the inside is what you will manifest on the outside.  While there is SOME truth to this, it is absolutely NOT an absolute Truth.

Most of my life I believed I was unlovable. Yet when I look back, I see that I have been loved my entire life.  Now… it is true that I created the FEELING of loneliness, but the reality is that I was never alone.

Most of my adult life, I believed I was poor. Yet somehow I almost ALWAYS had the money to pay rent, bills and eat. Even when I found myself “homeless”, I still was able to secure shelter until … Read the rest
