    “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.

    Worship “reasoning” to find “truth.” 

    If we could experience that our consciousness will give us a particular experience, then it will be very hard to pinpoint something as the “truth.”
    “Reason” is only a methodology to grasp certainty at the mental level. Reason is very superficial when we are dealing with the depth of Life. Nevertheless, most individuals rely on “reason” as the standard to find “truth,” what is “right.”

    Religions such as Brahma Kumaris and Christianity, have built their “truth” based on follower’s interpretations of experiences lived by their religious founders.
    The “Holy Bible” and the BK Murli are examples of that. They can only convey a particular perspective from a certain consciousness.

    If someone uses “rationality” to explore the Bible of the Murli, pretty soon there will be certain items which do not fit the rational standard.
    Then, their messages are discarded as “irrational.”
    We could argue all we want about the “truth” behind the Bible or the BK Murli. It is a very good mind exercise and nothing else.

    The Bible and the BK Murli are not meant to be dissected with rationality. They are meant to be followed, believed, respected. Those documents become the center stage, the source of authority to replace a missing presence of a God.
    “Blind faith” is required to go fully into their path.

    Unfortunately, this great opportunity to awaken to different kind of realities, doesn’t bring that benefit most of the time; but rather a “hard-nosed” follower who believes to have the “truth” or the chance to control followers for different purposes not related with inner-exploration.

    Going through the experience of whatever label/religion we believe to BE, is what will bring change in the individual.

    Whenever we embrace something like a religion or lack of it (atheist,) we will position ourselves at the starting point of our search in Life. The complete experience will be, once we reject that which we embraced at the beginning. That is the way of duality.
    This is not a mental agreement and then a rejection. Your whole BEING will be in it.

    BEING caught up in the existence of a God or lack of it, is of no consequence to change of consciousness and as such, to the possibility to self-realize.

    Once the search for God is over, there is no-God. But once no-God is embraced, then there must be God. That is the game of duality.
    Beyond that game, there is “I,” self.
    That is where the search may finish until we find “no-I.”

    Then, the search is over for there is nothing to search for a “nobody.”

    Yes. It is hard to understand. It is no rational. Thus, it is nonsense.
    The mind is caught up with itself.
    There are no “holy scriptures” or beliefs or lack of them that could take a person into the openness which is necessary to feel fulfilled in Life.

    Living Life experiences will do that. However, since those are too frequent, we dismiss their value. We are not awoken to OBSERVE the movements of Life and consciousness.
    We rather have a mental story in our minds backed up by rationality or lack of, to believe in.

    We are so “happy” by seeing pictures of a meal, rather than experiencing the meal itself. We try to search on how to quench our thirst, what is the “true method,” to do that rather than having the experience of drinking.

    Paradoxically, if you embrace thirst, satiation of thirst will follow… but then after that, thirst will be experienced again. How to get rid of thirst?
    By not making it into a “rational problem.”

    For the common good.
