Spiritual Rubbish

If you sit you’ll develop discipline so you can watch your thoughts come and go. Eventually there will be more and more space between them. It’s in this space that you’ll see the spiritual rubbish held in the mind…

With the emergence of the social media, there’s so much information available on spirituality that it really needs to be investigated before you consider using it to assist in their development. Here is the definition of rubbish: garbage, trash, nonsense. To see if the information you are using to develop discipline is beneficial, there can’t be anything associated with it that forms attachment. Methods, programs, guru’s, life coaches, teachers, or any other form of rubbish that’s used to keep you attached just keeps you entrapped to the very thing you are trying to break free of. Just as there’s a lot of “fake news” out there today, there’s also a lot of fake information on spirituality. Attachment is not something that’s truly understood by many people and so most of the information out there is rubbish and keeps you in prison in some way. Those telling you to buy their book, pay for retreats run by paid speakers, or follow (instant attachment) a program are clever to a fault, with the fault being keeping you in prison.

The only thing one needs to do is look within so a millisecond of space is created between your thoughts. Once this occurs and there’s awareness of it, slowly there will be more and more space; it takes nothing but awareness to create this space. The rubbish out there that someone’s program, book, method or whatever has your answer will keep you in attached to what you are trying to break free from. I know people defend their so called guru or people they follow adamantly, but it’s only because there’s no awareness of the prison they’re in. Sit often and just watch the thoughts come and go. Eventually there will be more and more space between them. It’s in this space that you will see all the spiritual rubbish you are attached to and the prison you’re in…
