Deceitful ‘Spirituality’

January 19, 2020


Most people think that to be spiritual is to seek to become one with everything.

And that’s a noble quest, yet oneness is where we all come from and where we all go to, when we die.

We are human beings trying to have a spiritual experience while we simultaneously are spiritual beings having a human experience.

When we’re one – we crave for separateness. We crave to know ourselves experientially – and for this we need everything that this reality brings: darkness. Separation. Pain. Vulnerability. Addiction and disconnection.

Because only in contrast to the dark we are able to understand, value, appreciate and truly know the light.

Only by feeling separated from each other are we able to feel the beauty of compassion and oneness.
(Experientially! Not philosophically)
However, we sometimes forget that we chose to come here to this adventure, with this body and our own limitations.

If we wanted oneness, we would’ve stayed as pure energy.

So spirituality is not so much about seeking to transcend your earthly experience, but rather to embrace it fully.

✨Our best meditation is our attention to our relationships.

✨The best ritual is our communication.

✨The deepest alchemy, our capacity to love those who hurt us.

True spirituality is, as Maharaj-ji taught: love everyone, serve everyone and remember God.
Not love God, Search God and forget everyone.
Our merging with oneness is taken care of, the moment we are born.

So let’s use this life to seek to learn to love our differences, our uniqueness and our challenges – for that makes us human.

And that is the experience we chose.

I love you 🙏🏻🖤
