Challenge your opinions

This morning I cleaned up my blog. I deleted more than 150 articles, more than half of the blog. There will be no more daily news, song and dating categories. I am strictly focused now on awakening and yoga.

Couple months ago, I posted So it begins... The greatest shitstorm of your time to the Facebook page Awakening Community and I got a lot of shitty comments. 😛 Although some people like the post the majority was totally against and they expressed it freely. They asked for my intent of posting that.

New agers are weird people. They’ll eat row food, most of the time starving, they will freeze on snow, give away money and possessions, do yoga, endure mind-numbing boredom of daily meditation, travel to foreign lands to visit interesting lama and much more, but the one thing they won’t do is look at yourself.

I have concluded that they are just like fleshy robots running on outdated awakening software. They possess knowledge and full capacity for thought. They competently handle all the complexities of life, I mean family, health, finance, career, household, day in and day out, year after year. They are quite intelligent, mature, clever, kind, honest. But they are not awaken.

Awakening for them is to be nice and say you are sorry when you done wrong and your loving Spirit (they don't call it God) won't cook your ass. They hope for transcendental bliss, cosmic consciousness, kundalini energy, supreme love...

Be nice, be quiet, smile, breathe deeply, be good, don't ask questions, don't use your minds, don't make a disturbance — sound familiar?

New Age people are really doing nothing more than maintaining their ignorance through some imagined alternative life styles. There is no interest in  freedom. It's all been channeled safely into non-threatening, ego-gratifying avenues such as "unique souls coming together", "awakening is a gift", heart based spirituality and other hobbies... yoga,  meditation, praying, chanting, vegetarianism, attending darshan and satsang, vipasana,  pranayama, zazen, donating money to charitable institutions, reading classical spiritual literature, purifying body etc...

In my experience, those who do go inward and do what is necessary to dismantle their personalities have begun the real process of awakening and they don’t need anyone else for anything.

To ask how you can be free of your body and reside in the world of Spirits is ridiculous. Why would you want to be free of your body? To me it seems wonderful to have a body. Look at all the wonderful things you can do with the body.

Anyway, they believe, in the broadest sense, that something is wrong and that "right living" can make it right. What that something is, what's wrong with it, and how it can be fixed all differ from person to person, but general pattern is always the same. However, the truth is that wrongness is entirely imagined. It is the ego. It is the core of delusion.

The essence of my post is to tell them to stop considering themselves to have past and future, to have history, to keep progressing somewhere. In terms of awakening it doesn't matter much if one meditates or not, or whether one eats meat or not, or whether one gives to charities or steals from them.

For awakening they need to dismantle false preconceptions. They need to challenge their opinions; the most cherished and deeply held beliefs because no belief is true. They need to understand themselves, their false self.

As long as they stay pointed outward towards the Spirits, chakras and kundalini, and feel that they’re making progress toward some imagined ideal, they’ll fool themselves of awakening.

Maybe I have written the worst post ever but the one does not undergo the process of awakening out of love for the true but out of hatred for the false: a hatred so intense that it burns everything and spares nothing.
