Spiritual Enlightenment Cliche’ # 54231516 What is true Spirituality?

Jed McKenna is my hero. There’s a passage in his book, Spiritual Enlightenment- The Damnedest Thing, that gets right to the root of our post modern spiritual materialism: He calls it en-lite-enment; where a person’s got all the goods, but none of the substance. Goods being meditation pillows, incense, rock gardens, statues, crystals, Oprah recommended books, and guaranteed techniques that will get you from point A to point B. All of this -out the proverbial yin-yang. Substance of course being enlightenment. (Oh yeah that)

Funny thing about waking up- it gives you a birds eye view of the spiritual landscape. And let me tell you: the view stinks. BUT- there’s hope…

The Body’s Gratitude- Guided Exercise from Course Webinar

The current BCE Course is about half way through and it’s been an intense amazing ride for everyone.  Each week we gather via webinar to check in, report and share.  Each week we begin the webinar with a guided exercise.  Often, I don’t know where these lead to, what the topic will be, or even what the exercise will be.  I let the moment guide.  In this moment quite a few subjects were touched upon.  The one that struck me the most was the body’s gratitude.  Listen, watch, enjoy- and dive deep into this gratitude.  You won’t regret it.

Spiritual Sense of Humor- Thank you, Thank you, Thank you

 

Laughter is the quickest way

 

I had a great humorous email exchange with a guy named Dan

I had a great email exchange with someone named Dan:

Dan’s emails are in BLUE

My responses are in BLACK

In the fifteenth year of his current incarnation, Dan had a powerful spiritual awakening that opened up not only his third eye, but a third ear and nostril as well, utterly transforming his life into an orificial smorgasbord that thereafter made annual physicals and body cavity searches take twice as long.

While this initial awakening later proved to be acid reflux, it did initiate a spiritual journey that eventually led Dan to India, where he met his beloved master, Sri Gulab Jamun, or as he lovingly called him, “Donut Hole.”  Sri Donut conferred upon Dan his highest blessing, and transmitted Shakti along with several non-communicable diseases.  Thereafter, Dan began seeing spirits, floaters, and the occasional stripper.  “It was as if blinders had fallen from my eyes at last, and everything I saw thenceforth was a student in need of my teachings.”

Awareness- Are you missing this step?

I’m passionate about this subject because I see many seekers who are stuck in the mire of endless advaita / nondual teachings, satsangs, books and videos- all of whom have skipped or avoided this vital step.

Are you making space for SPACE? Somethings gotta give…

Are you making space for SPACE?   Spiritual Awakening is the ultimate recognition of space / spaciousness / emptiness / consciousnes.  In order to recognize this ( down to the bone marrow ) somethings gotta give.  You need to make room;  set aside the frivolous, the unnecessary, the useless..  Are you doing this?  Or does your precious time, energy and life resource get sucked away by menial things?  Let’s investigate…

Spiritual Humor, Sarcasm, Cynicism & Nihilism

Nihilism Humor

So as a first foray back into the world of PIE let us address the newly returned elephant in the room: Spiritual Humor, Sarcasm, Cynicism and Nihilism.  I am a fan of all four- to a certain extent. Part of the awakening process inevitably and naturally produces shades or vestiges of these things, but like anything else, they can also show up in over-abundant, rotten spades. Humor > turns into sarcasm.  Sarcasm > turns into cynicism. Cynicism > turns into NIHILISM.  When this happens… when the spiritual process turns into Nihilism…you’ve just become fucked, stuck and lost in a hole, seldom escaped from. Ooops- Not so funny anymore.

spiritual awakening intensity

An often missing ingredient for those longing for awakening is intensity- the buildup of pressure and release while on the path. In other words if you’re just surfing spiritual you-tube videos or reading books- without the intensity I speak of in this video- you won’t get far.
