To be oneself. Or not.
To be oneself, one needn’t do anything. One is already being himself at all times; his every drive, desire and egotism emits from this being
Yet, our spiritual overlords, those who wish to have reign over our spirituality and attempt to compromise our spirituality with their own, as if we
were delicious enough hosts for these parasitic thoughts, wish to do away with aspects of our being in the hopes that we too will spiritually castrate
ourselves by eliminating every drive, desire and egotism as they have, to limit ourselves, to bring us down to their level. Every God attempts to make
us in his image.
I wonder what they see when they look at us vagabonds and miscreants of spirituality. We must offend their very core at the mere sight of us. “Look
at him, this spiritually impoverished soul,” says their ego, “If only he were without desire,” says their desire.
“To be” is to accept oneself, to be honest with oneself and to value oneself as one already is, in the hopes of learning, mastering and overcoming
oneself for the sake of everything that we are apart of. Yet, they sell us on “inner worlds”, “enlightenment”, “detachment”, “ego
death”, “the after-life”, hatred of the sensual, the egotistical, and all the symptoms of our very being, as if they were symptoms of some
disease, life and the world, so that we may be the opposite of what we are, “not to be”—or at bottom—them.
There is no spirituality found in running from or attempting to destroy what one is. That is death. That is self-betrayal. That is without spirit.
In matters of spirituality there is only one choice, to be oneself or not. To create oneself or destroy oneself.
