“Spirituality” through reading and memorizing

Avyakt7-NG is sharing that “spirituality” is not obtained by reading and applying concepts into our daily Life.
That is only a good exercise for our mind. Nothing else.
That traditional way of “learning” is only a conditioning given by our society. We could learn through that method what is needed to do well in a profession or a trade but not in change of CONSCIOUSNESS.

“Spirituality” is the ART of BEING in harmony within and without. That cannot be taught through books, conferences, on-line classes, holy words of God, etc.

Nevertheless, anyone following that path of “reading,” is a beginner in the journey and needs to be respected as such. Books/ holy scriptures are “good” but not necessary.
Beyond “reading” and interpretation of concepts, there is OBSERVATION and ASSIMILATION of Life EXPERIENCES. Growth is through them.
What do “I” OBSERVE? “MY” interaction. What “buttons” have been pushed. My feelings surfacing. My rejection. My beliefs. All of that is what makes up my “I.” All of that is continuously challenged by Life changes. The “I” will fight to maintain itself despite the obvious changes.

Paradoxically, the environment is a reflection of that “I.”  It will show our traumas, our rejections, our beliefs, etc. But the “I” will not recognize them as such, but it will create a struggle, a fight to conquer what is out there. It is like a dog biting its own tail.

Empty, open, grateful to Life… Those are the ingredients to understand without understanding.
Thus, ‘true’ understanding.
