Spirituality doesn’t give us anything tangible. It mostly removes things. Those things are misperception, delusion and the monkey mind. Once those things are removed, we are left with what we have always been; the true Self, the one consciousness, God.
When our life is outwardly focused, we tend to be attached to all the things we think we need to be happy – the right circumstances, the best things, the perfect relationship. But when we strip it all away we see that what is really valuable is the supreme stillness, the emptiness, pure Being. Spirituality dissolves the attachments, the aversions and the conditioning and leaves us in silence. We discover that the gem of life is simply being.
When our life is devoted to outward desire, we can easily get lost in the world of ego, insufficiency, disappointment and anger. Our life becomes an attachment to outcomes. When our life is devoted to God, Guru and the supreme Self, we realize our divinity. Our lives become compassion.
True spirituality holds no stance, no dogma, no sin. It holds revelation. It reveals our oneness with God. That revelation is our destiny and purpose. That revelation arises in the supreme stillness.
