I have to agree, when I studied Buddhism long ago, I found the were many brilliant concepts, meditation can be an excellent exercise that produces
excellent results. Opening of one's third eye opens amazing doors.
However the concept of enlightenment, I felt was too wrapped up in arrogance. One does not become one with God, or the embodiment of God here on Earth
or anything like that. That is nonsense. Neither do I believe in Gurus.
Truth is obtaining an accurate perspective of some dimension of the world, but to claim that someone knows the universal truth about the world is
nonsense, because the world is infinite, and so is the truth.
I think the Gnostics have a better concept in their view that we all have a tiny sliver of the one true God within us, and that can enable us to
pierce the veil of life illusions, but at that point one has only just began.
Passion is immensely critical to growth and evolution, more important than intelligence, talent, beauty, or physical prowess. Passion is potential. We
live in this amazing physical plane, it would be folly not to experience everything we can learn from in this place. Meditation is great, but it is
not the purpose of life, and neither is prayer. Struggle is more important than both, from my experience.
The more I learn, the less I know.
The more I experience, the more I realize how little I have experienced.
