Yeah, but does any of it work? All these philosophies, religions and so forth.
But anyway, you seem like a smart guy, right? So I'm sure you get what I'm talking about
Nothing works. If you are lucky enough to realize this, then you perhaps might have a chance of so called enlightenment. All of the methods and
philosophies lead to no where, which is a good thing. Because once you realize this, you can then come back to your true nature.
The western world is in the adolescent stage of spirituality. Thousands of years ago, it was discovered that there is no path to self realization.
Millions of people and thousands of ignorant and manipulative teachers perpetuate the false notion of journeying to enlightenment, endlessly chasing
your own tails. And most Americans have turned enlightenment into a smorgasbord of philosophy and intellectual concepts. In fact, siddhartha Buddha
spoke of this in his teachings. But humanity is still in love with the journey.
In reality, you can not philosoph-ize your way to spiritual intelligence and enlightenment. Because enlightenment is a concept .. An idea formed by
the very mind you are trying to transcend. If you are pursuing an idea of enlightenment , you will never succeed. Because all ideas and concepts are
Maya. Maya is the eternal hamster wheel that snags 99 percent of spiritual "path'ers". This entire metaphysical forum, is a jumbled mess of
interleaving philosophies, ideas and beliefs. All of which leads to nowhere. The sooner an individual realizes this, the better the chance of him
returning to his true original nature......which is the original definition of enlightenment.
Enlightenment is not what you think it is.....it's far better. And there is no path towards it. Instead, all intelligently designed paths should lead
you to the realization that all paths are illusions of the mind....Maya.
