How to understand spirituality

353

“I cannot tell you anything that, deep within, you don’t already know.” -Eckhart Tolle

Spirituality is beyond intellectual argument or rationalization. This is not mind-stuff. No external proof is needed and there is nothing the mind needs to grasp.

Our minds have been conditioned by the so-called authorities of this world to believe that, if something cannot be grasped by the mind or measured, then it is not real. This thought system teaches that only ego (identification with the world of form) is real. This is the illusion to be undone if we are to transcend the problems of our lives and of this world.

The mind is the instrument through which we come to understand the realm of form (i.e. stuff, matter). That which is non-material is beyond the mind. This is the realm of everything we most deeply care about: love, feeling good, happiness, health, friendship, the list goes on.  

“Feeling will get you closer to the truth of who you are than thinking.” Place all trust in the mind and become blind to all that which is beyond it.

We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
