If they lack the spiritual knowledge to understand whether this is true or not is a shame. It should garner compassion and empathy that they have not been fortunate enough to reach such a level of spiritual understanding.
A bigger shame is if they have decided to close the gates of understanding since they are satisfied with what they know. Those who loose the desire to understand more of themselves become ignorant and those who are ignorant become angry at those who they perceive as wrong(stupid).
So if you and I are truly open minded we have to forgive the ignorant individual because no matter if they feel the need to put down others, karmic consequences will do a better job than a retaliatory post can ever do.
My compassion goes out to you mr-lizard, I hope that life smiles upon you and you reach a higher level of spiritual understanding however life decides to hand it you.
Wow... It seems the opinionated are un-spiritual...
For your information, I spent a LOT of time around pseudo-spiritual people and suffered a lot of stress for my beliefs and opinions.
Is it more spiritual to accept every little quirky fragment of new age rubbish that comes pouring out of the gullible, easily led people?
Or is it more spiritual to challenge everything?
Once again, you have NO idea how my 'spirituality', although I can probably put money on the fact that YOU haven't walked in the shoes of extreme poverty, sat and chatted with lepers or stared death in the face.
Have you ever talked a friend out of commiting suicide?
Whereas, I think the value of human life is FAR more spiritual than sitting in a field and pretending to make clouds dissapear.
Read my signature.... I like to learn something new every day (well... actually I like to learn something new for every second of my life... I treasure information, knowledge and generally study the beauty of people, life, the universe and everything..... BUT I don't swallow every piece of rubbish that comes my way. I think I am very open minded and try and not walk with the flock. Unlike some people on this very thread.
Oh wait... you were talking to me..... (See above post)
I too wish you the eternal beams of shining light and may your judgemental approach to others fade into understanding, and i hope one day you quit judging people for having opinions that differ to yours...
Remember karma has a habit of biting you in the balls.
New age crap. The clouds will 'go away' whether you stare at them or not...
It's like saying 'by staring at the trees, i can make the branches blow in the wind'.... or saying 'I can make the water in that river flow by staring at them'...
Ptetentious gullibility at its worst.
