The death of spirituality.
How can we keep it alive?
“The fullness of the connection becomes hollow like our ancient temples that are now empty, devoid of an obvious meaning.”
The death of spirituality happens when the seeds of direct connection to God/Spirit are planted in a material culture. This beautiful, divine connection is interpreted through the lens of materialism, problem-solving, greed, and idiocy. The fullness of the connection becomes hollow like our ancient temples that are now empty, devoid of an obvious meaning. We walk the halls trying to make sense of them, but we cannot. We only have empty material objects left; the meaning is lost.
In modern spirituality, there is a promotion of tools and rituals – crystals, vision boards, cards, etc. Those objects and rituals are ONLY physical symbol for feelings and connection to the Divine. Whenever people assign spiritual meaning onto external objects and rituals, it empowers the objects rather than the people. We are quickly losing meaning as objects, rather than Divine Truth, are being shared and passed down. Then, whenever people try to use external objects without their connectedness to Divinity, they quickly become frustrated and dismissive. On the flip side, they may end up thinking the object is more powerful than they are. Whenever gnosis (the state of union with God/Spirit) is interpreted through materialism, it distorts and extracts the meaning.
Instead: Find personal meaning. Understand personal meaning. Do not force your own meaning upon others. Feel Truth. Become an Example of that Truth anchored in physical form.
