I find it bad form of those that are calling those that are not seeking or have not had 'spiritual experiences' things like 'sheeple, zombies, or
telling them they have golf ball size anything'.
Inner growth...does not lead you to hold yourself above another...ever.
Know between growth of ego and growth of soul.
Look out for 'being full of yourself'.
Good post. Some of the posters in this thread so desperately want to be part of some seekrit club of people who 'get it' while they belittle others as
being 'asleep' It's pseudo-spirituality and it's bulls#it.
I agree with this too, but LV's comment about the naysayers claiming spiritual people are Zombies is just false... see the naysayers are the
George Romero gave a good analogy of consumerism being behind his original series of movies, the active naysayer against spirituality is very consumer
minded, and it is not only in products and material items, it is also different types of media that they consume.
what they really want though is to eat our brains, because they just can't understand... but somehow they think it will help them or make them smarter

I never said the naysayers were claiming spiritual people are zombies. I said...a person that has grown within them, spiritually, would not call
people names, like saying the ones that 'dont get it' are zombies.
Which is why I didnt know where to stand in this thread. I will back people claiming they have had experiences that led them to a revelation and helps
them now to be a better person in the world, being 'of' the world. But I wont back people that claim to be 'awake' spiritually, then only to turn
around and call people names that belittles them in any way.
Ego is a huge hurdle...and to 'know' you have gained some great spiritual wisdom...this should not cause a person to sink back to the level of calling
people out on 'what they do not know'.
In fact...they should be forgiving...for what others, know not. You dont hold wisdom over someone elses head. But yet the wisdom that you gained,
should allow you to love and be empathetic to those that dont understand.
I...never...called anyone....zombies. I only encouraged, others to do the same. Especially, those claiming to have some sort of 'spiritual knowing' of
their inner nature and true being.
Are we really trying to help someone...by saying they are a zombie? Is that really going to lead them to the 'knowing' of something great beyond them?
Knowing...comes from within. No matter what another tells another about their own personal knowing....this is not going to force someone to 'see' what
the other has saw. Be humble, of any spiritual wisdom. Be willing to share it, where its sought for. Be willing to accept others, equally.
There are some on this thread that have done just that...they were attacked by others calling them out on 'calling being awake a truth'...and they in
return, became defensive...and eventually called those that are 'not awake'...sheeple, zombies, ect...and I said...this is bad form.
