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…

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.

Polarity and The Tao of Awakening

There’s always a polarity in life and you’ll need to see it, feel it, and accept it in order to wake up. Here’s how…

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.
