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…

Insult- Zen and the Art of Kicking your Ass into Spiritual Awakening

So, you want to wake up do ya? Hmmm? Really?…

Great. Well then, come sit on my knee and allow me to insult you.  Every tradition has their equivalent of a zen beating: an austerity, or test, or bare bones knock down fist fight that really tests the limits of your determination to actually go through with this waking up business.    … (continued)

Cancel your plans and give Mystery a chance

Cancel your plans. Kill your TV. Be bored. Embrace tomorrow with nothing to do. And…give mystery a chance to awaken your heart.

(Pardon my appearance- did this one at 6am, before coffee, when the house was quiet, and not a creature was stirring….)

Sex, Spiritual Awakening and Relationships

So, do you wanna wake up or do you wanna get laid? Worried that you can have one but not the other? My friend, let me assuage those medieval mentations …

Sex and enlightenment are by no means mutually exclusive. I woke up in the midst of a completely normal marriage that included/includes sex and even spawn. If it’s not already obvious, the type of awakening I’m talking about here at PIE is not (ultimately) dependant upon any type of effort or tecnique. So fucking yourself into enlightenment or not fucking yourself into enlightenment is not going to work. On the other hand if the enlightenment you’re after is the Yogi-on-the-mountain-top, One-with-the-universal-godhead, breathitarian-kundalini-master one, then by all means do what you ya gotta do. Fuck away. But then again, if this is you, I hardly think you’d be tolerant of listening to a fool like me.

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.

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…
