Having been asked to view this video of Adi Da Samraj: Whole Body Spirituality
, as best I could I watched the first ten minutes twice.
Right from the start, this man said, "There must be this literal biological or biophysical transformation of the body-mind." Once I heard this I knew
that anything this man had to say, it would mean nothing to me. It's as if this man spoke a different language, or that he was speaking utter nonsense
(hold on, I will clarify this statement in a minute). I'm not saying that others wouldn't make some sense out of it. I'm saying that maybe it's just
me because I am not in this game, and I'll try to explain what I mean.
In today's world it's all about money. We give our kids an allowance. We look for higher paying jobs. We feel elated if we win money, and feel like
failures when we lose money. We need money to survive, to pay our bills, to go on vacations... Money, money, money...
Now, an intelligent alien race comes here to live with us on this planet. This race has always had its needs provided, so that the rewards from
working come from playing an important role in their society. When we talk to these aliens we say things like:
You can't make money if you don't spend money.
You can take that to the bank.
He's laughing all the way to the bank.
A penny earned is a penny saved.
Neither lender nor borrower be.
A penny for your thoughts.
He's worth his weight in gold.
Right now I'm broke, but I hope to be rich some day.
Now, we know that money isn't real; it's a game that somebody made up a long time ago. But, seeing as we are now born and raised in this game, money
has become very real to us. When we talk about money (as in the statements above), it makes perfect sense to us, while the aliens would be going out
of their minds trying to figure out what in the hell we're saying. We would sound utterly insane to them.
This is the same with those that have immersed themselves in the metaphysical: religious beliefs, transcendence, spirituality... The believers in such
things slowly opened their minds to what isn't real, and the longer they studied such states of being, the more concrete these beliefs became, until
these beliefs transformed into something very real to them, leaving the rest of us looking at them as though they were talking utter nonsense. They
completely understand what they are talking about, just as we understand the concept of money, but to those that aren't in that particular game, it's
all just gobbledygook.
So, just as we will never break away from the concept of money (that isn't real) and work simply for the betterment of mankind, then I doubt we will
ever get the believers in the metaphysical to see the falseness of their claims. And, we will never grasp what in the hell they're talking about.
This is just my two cents worth.
