After Thought #31

 

I’ve come to realize that some of the “most spiritual” people in the world are in fact, completely self absorbed in their own narcissistic trance.  Be it their belief systems, their philosophy of life, their thinking or their pain; there is no room “for God”, because the “me” screams so loudly it overwhelms any expression of “truth” that might be present.

I’ve come to realize that “spirituality” has nothing to do with the God that you worship or any knowledge the mind might have learned, earned or gained; it matters not what you have read or not read.  It matters not what you have experienced or not experienced; it matters not what you have done or not done. 

All these are ideas of a delusional mind, lost in its own fragmentation, a false foundation built on abstracted thinking that only ever, represents an idea of what can never be spoken of or experienced.

I’ve come to realize that talk of Karma and past lives, contracts and soul mates are the neurosis of a mind that wants to control the uncontrollable; to explain and reconciliate the perceived chaos of a world that will never be organized.

I’ve come to realize that the peace and the love that we so desperately seek, lies beyond the noise of a mind that fears its own imagined, shadow.  That beyond the nonsense of the teacher and the teachings there lies an unfathomable silence where “truth” lies waiting to caress us with its gentle hand; in the silence of a quiet mind nothings going to change our world…
