Breaking Enlightenment Bad. True Spirituality. What is it?

There’s a scene, you know well, in the original 1999 film The Matrix.  Morpheus offers Neo the choice between two pills- the blue one and the red one:

“You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.”

Taking the red pill of course means accepting reality, no matter how brutal, hard, or difficult that reality may be. Taking the red pill requires a lot of courage. And- taking the red pill is the ultimate example of breaking bad…

Well, guess what? You’re gunna have to break bad in order to wake up. For real yo…

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…

There’s no such thing as enlightenment

This is probably the best thing I could say to any spiritual seeker to get them to stop fantasizing about something bigger or better …over there and in the future. When all your nondual advaita zen buddhist day dreams finally come true you will indeed realize that it’s all been a sham. Enlightenment? Nope. En-human-ment yes. This does not discount peak states- but peak states come and go. And this definitely does not discount the ongoing sense of peace confidence and fulfillment that comes with it- but when experienced continually “enlightenment” is quite ordinary and a really bad name for it.  This is one of the reasons  why I call it blue collar– hopefully this descriptive adjective reduces the usual ridiculous misconceptions about the big E.

“Call off the Search” Papaji once famously said. Couldn’t agree more. But, this too can be a trite statement. Usually the search gets called off after you have driven yourself mad f—ing crazy with searching, searching and searching…. Go figure.

Permission to Greenlight your own Spiritual Awakening Granted.

Don’t get me wrong. I love me some crystals. I dig tantric sex. There ain’t nothing wrong with Oprah. I love a great massage, new age book, and nag- champa incense. I own around five to six Buddhas. And- I just had an advaita vedanta potluck party at my house. (I will draw the line at the tarot cards and psychic readings. Haven’t seriously done either one of those in lifetimes. ) Got no issues with the new age or Sedona.

But let me tell you my friend, if you’re interested in awakening / blue collar enlightenment and these are the only types of things you’ve been greenlighting lately, you’re in deep doo-doo. You’re gunna need to give yourself PERMISSION to wake up- Give yourself permission to be happy- Give yourself permission to evolve, transcend and ARRIVE- here, now, today. Have you done this? Have you really said to yourself- YES! I want awakening- I give myself permission to awaken! I am worthy of Awakening! Yes? No? Maybe? Hmmm. We might wanna explore this together. Follow me through here… We need to fix your traffic light…

Seeing Ego – The Spiritual Enlightenment Self Destruct Button

Self Inquiry or the process of seeing ego is much like pushing a self destruct button. The self that gets destroyed of course (displaced is a better word but for this post we will stick with the apocalyptic analogy) is the little self of mind/ego and the SELF that takes it’s place is the true self of conscious self-awareness. In order for the self-destruct button to REALLY take effect you have to be pushing it during all moments of your waking life, until the wind has been completely taken out of the sails of ego. This process is no fun. You will not thank me while you are going through this process. When you arrive to the other side of this process you might thank me…or not. Much like the movie The Matrix, waking up is more about the truth than candy coated light infused bubbalicious bliss and happiness. Here’s how you self-destruct:

Harry Potter, Courage, Summer Solstice and 2012 – Spiritual Awakening anybody?

It’s no coincidence that there are seven Harry Potter books (chakras). It’s no coincidence that the series is a magical (metaphysical) wonderland. It’s no coincidence that Voldermort and Harry (you and YOU) are each a part of the other. …that Harry is guided by a litany of great teachers, sages, and advisers. …that Harry has to learn about and train to master the magical arts. …that Harry Potter is mega-popular series of books and films. Of course it is.

The reason is because, at its’ heart, Harry Potter is about YOU. The true you waiting to be discovered, recognized, and realized. Harry Potter is about your grand return adventure home. The home where all the separate, unloved, unseen, neglected and lost parts of YOU come together and celebrate their return, rejoice in their integration, and laugh at the whole cosmic joke process.
