Those devoted to illusion enter blind darkness. Into greater darkness enter those who are solely attached to knowledge.

Spirituality and hypocrisy

Every 3rd person on the road claims to be spiritual now.
Most people pray.
Pray for good marks, job, money, house, vehicle, more comforts, better status..
and of course, for health and peace..

Every 3rd person, suffers horribly.
and the ones who don't suffer much for the time being, close their eyes to reality and tell themselves..
"i wont be affected by all this..all eez well.."

We are all living amidst big bombs.
Big problems which may explode in our lives any moment..
as a cancer to our loved one or severe financial or personal issues.
Even the most disciplined ones can't escape from this.
Even the ones who pray a lot too suffer from all these bombs..

People cut off themselves from the loud material world, but make themselves comfortable in their own small way..trying to exercise control over their situations and circumstances..
i call it comfortable spirituality. and yet....

Someone stole a spiritual one's i -phone and he's unable to drop the issue!

A land lord harasses a spiritual practitioner for more money and the practitioner feels the game has to be played accordingly.

What should be the ideal way to conduct oneself, when one is in a spiritual path?
Should you defend yourself when you are being wronged?
Should a spiritual person participate in Freedom struggle?
or help a beggar on street?
or protect a woman from a group of teasers?

I remember reading Ramana maharshi advising a disciple who wanted to take part in freedom struggle.."you take care of your inner world and then the outer world won't trouble you."

only a true Vairagi(detached one) can be called spiritual.
one who will accept even pain inflicted on him just as equal as a tasty chocolate..
as the gift of the Supernatural power..

One who won't defend his status..
one who doesn't mind losing his everything..
one who is merged in Self..

one without any transactions.
very very very rare.
