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…

Confusing Spiritual Awakening Professionalism with Sainthood

It’s very easy to confuse spiritual awakening with sainthood. Often teachers speak beautifully, eloquently and clearly- and yes, this is how they should speak (professionally). But the mind then creates a story about that teacher which says they are perfect, pure and very very spiritual.  And then a GAP between who they are and who you are is created.  Oops.  Let’s demolish that idea…and this gap…. in this video.

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Whattyda say we take a break from the  usual BCE video blog posts and take a peak at this utterly charming video snippet of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?  Willy Wonka is a spiritual awakening path metaphor.  Five kids win a golden ticket to journey through Willy Wonkas world- a world connected to joy and peace through  candy (on the exterior) ;  and to heart on the interior.  Little Charlie is the only kid  with heart who makes it through the factory without succumbing to its temptations. In the end he inherits Willy’s factory….Willys heart and Willy’s awakening.

Hope Spirituality- Spiritual Awakening Pitfall #2423

Often on the spiritual path we rely too much on “hope spirituality” – usually a combination of  “letting go”, “there’s nothing you need to do” “its all good” “its happening for a reason” and other concepts that enable you to be stuck on the spiritual awakening path for years or decades.  Here’s how to find balance regarding these concepts and get-  unstuck.

Embracing Spiritual Awakening Disappointment

Trading in your separation, unhappiness, longing and seeking for disappointment is a good idea in my opinion. There’s just no way that spiritual awakening / enlightenment is going to live up to the social, historical, mythical and mental expectations that have taken hold in you. Instead, embrace complete disappointment and see what happens…
