many hold the belief that it is through following "rules", codified in some fashion in a Holy Book
. . . that defines the "true path"
this is a complex trail upon which to walk, as it is typically littered with laws for which no logic seems to exist and there is not an easy judge in which to petition for clarity
others feel it is through "deeds" -- we do nice things and that is the way "in"
this of course raises the question of how nice do you have to be and what is the proper ratio of good deeds to not quite so good that qualifies as sufficient
others, such as myself, look to a sense of "inner knowing" yet the totally legitimate question is . . . can this knowing be trusted?
is it divine ?? or demonic ??
or something else entirely ?????
and so the wild mood swings of God seeking . . . trying on first one shirt then another
however, I feel strongly that using any of the above as a mask to cloak deeds, attitudes, personal land grabs that are knee deep in hypocrisy
is not only "not spiritual"
it is "anti" SPIRIT
and it is this antithetical attitude of spiritual hypocrisy that ones sees everywhere they look
this is why the times today are so "complicated"
and why we continue to run our ships onto hard ground, over and over again
we have (as a collective) lost our way
and the loudest voices pointing the way forward, are the least qualified to do so
a dangerous time
cluster doth indeed
. . . meet fuck
over over over and over
