of course, thanks for sharing.
spirituality is disinformation as far as mainstream goes, but I have noticed some things which are almost the same across religions, when it comes to
esoteric knowledge that is not mainstream.
Like indian, chinese, tibetan yoga, essenes, sufis, hermetica, alchemy, etc...or better said from people who have mastered their own systems and in my
opinion achieved full understanding.
- detachment (only cultivating virtues, dropping all vices)
- pure heart and mind/compassion for all beings
- absolute truth
I have noticed that master buddhas, yogis, sufis, etc... who have written books are more or less in agreement with each other across many religions -
past and current and also time and location. But naturally they have very different techniques but description of the ultimate reality is very
That was my basis for understanding the absolute nature and how and what to practice and get experiences in the past. I was like a contemplating
monkey jumping from book to book from technique to technique : )
And so far I feel it has worked well for me, and have been lucky with more or less nice experiences, nothing what I could not handle at least.
but I am very careful not to take anything for granted about what i read and i always put focus on meditation experiences and insight. Books are for
me a guide map and not a belief system or something to cling or attach to.
Well I hope, it is very thin ice, I am walking on with this last statement.
Currently I have absorbed myself in tibetan (and also to some extent chinese and indian) buddhism and their tantra and sutras and I think I have just
found my best "clothes" yet after all those years of contemplation and practice various other related materials. I feel that their View and Practice
of dharma is best suited for my mind and current development and can take me the farthest in this life. So I recently decided to stick with that and
see how far I can go.
well this is just my opinion and how I have finally decided what tools and weapons I will use to get to the truth after all those years and I am very
happy for that.
