Rationality, critical thinking, honest inquiry, discernement, a healthy sense of self (not the flailing defensive ego of the newly ‘spiritualised’), an open mind, curiosity and an ability to go further – are not found in either the Invisible Guru or that other forum. Both trap humans in their belief of ‘attainment’, and this is where the folks stop and bask ‘in the glory’.
It ain’t that.
I observe, it is a very curious phenomenon, but really… do not expect to get any sense from either place: you will be spoken down to.
I interacted with many people at this point. The most honest did say they went through a period of elevated grandiosity from thinking they grokked it all, while many years down the line it became apparent to them they hardly even started.
There is a saying in Russian that accurately reflects ‘further’: “Live a century – learn a century”. ‘Further’ is the only order of the day for absolutely every human on planet Earth, including me, you, Jed, Chopra, Tolle, Dalai Lama, UG (no, UG is dead, no further for him) and every Jack and Harry in existence.
Only fools think they have arrived. We never arrive, we only journey, until the day we die.
Let them weave own tales. Reality is able to accommodate all.
