The pathetic promise of a better life

Having a good time in the world is great, but it has nothing to do with spirituality, as spirituality is formless and whether you have a good or bad time, time has a fom and no form can contain that which is formless.

As spirit is a formless and what is formless is endless, and everything in a world defined by time and space has an end, there is no spirituality in the world. Hence there are no spiritual writings and sayings or spiritual practices, persons, places and whatnot. Neither is Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings spiritual. Yet they are pointers towards it.

As spirit is endless, there is no world defined by time and space and therefore nothing to heal ´there´ except the sick belief, that you are ´there´.

This does not mean, Alexius´ Enlightened Non Teachings is on a mission against what is not spiritual. Personally he appreciate the grand view and the sound of the waves, where he and his cats appear to be. He just do not consider it to be spiritual, but a dream state that seems to fit his personality.

The formlessness of spirituality is no different from the oneness of life, so – as there is no more than that which is one – it makes no sense talking about a better life.

Meditations, chanting, prayers and lectures from do-gooders all over the world have not changed it. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Unfortunately most try to twist the formlessness of spirituality into tangible ideas, so that it appears as if there are special states of spirituality to be obtained in a world defined by time and space. The below Dalai Lama quote, that is founded on the naive beliefs of so-called spiritual people, is a typical example of this:

»Change in the world comes from individuals, from the inner peace in individual hearts. Just as ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped into water, the actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects.«

But from a spiritual point of view there are no individuals, neither a difference between inner and outer, as there is nothing but that which is one. For the same reason there is no cause and effect. So seen from the point of view where spirituality is the formlessness of that which is one, the quote is totally gibberish.

Even within the context of a world perceived to be full of individuals, nobody has peace or anything else in their hearts, unless such an experience is manufactured where all other experiences are made up, namely in the brain.

Many so-called spiritual people are so attached to their specific personality, that they are not capable of adjusting to the world, so they want the world to change – but as the world is in the eye of the beholder, it is their own perception that needs to change, if it upsets them.

Many so-called spiritual seekers are so attached to their personality, that they are not capable of adjusting to the world as it is. Instead they think, the world should be changed.

It is not a change though that is meant to benefit the world, but their ego, which is disguised behind smiles and talks about coming from the heart and whatnot – totally ignorant of the fact that all experiences are a fabrication carried out by the brain. See the article Eyes do not see, they translate.

Just like other do-gooders Dalai Lama likes to make people believe it is possible to make a difference. Yet in regards of ´actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects´ he has not made any real difference himself for his native country. He is not even welcome there anymore. But as people are suckers for hope, they are willing to believe anything implying that they are someone special who is part of a greater future – although there are no signs of such a future.
