The Secret Strategies of the Spiritual Awakening


During our spiritual Journey we accumulate a vast amount of knowledge of the world. From the books read, lectures heard and conversations we try to pick the useful and interesting bits of information, ideas, thoughts and theories. The same applies to experience.
We believe that if we gather a sufficient amount of information during our Journey, we achieve something, we improve, we make a progress. All the knowledge and experience collected, however, improves the contents of the mind, that is, a part of the Ego.
When we are interested in the spiritual development, we apply the same method. In this way we believe we are richer as we accumulate a lot of information, we will have more spiritual experience.

The Mosaic Image of “Truth”

The Ego-dominated mind attempts to make an image of reality from the accumulated spiritual knowledge and experience, trying to create the mosaic image of Truth.

The mind, however, always picks the stones for the mosaic from external sources:
·         Eckhart Tolle claimed the following about it...,
·         It is very similar to the way Osho argues about it…
·         As Krishnamurti asserts…. 
·         On the other hand, Maharshi believes….
That is how the mind puts one piece of the mosaic next to the other until it believes that the image is complete, and the mind is familiar with the whole Truth. 


That moment, though, will never come, because the image created from the bits and pieces borrowed from others is not the real “truth;” it is only the truth as the mind imagines it to be. As it is not possible to express the Truth with concepts, the image is false right from the beginning.
Another typical way of the mind is comparing its own experience with those of others:
·         What was your experience? Oh, that has happened to me, what’s more…
·         I have not seen that; how was it with you?
·         Just imagine, when….”.
By assembling the mosaic image of our own mosaic of “truth” (our own version of the “truth”) from our accumulated knowledge and through comparisons with those of others, we shall not be free and do not get closer to Truth. We have only created a beautiful (or not so beautiful) spiritual mask, and behind it the Ego grins at us and the world created by itself.
The knowledge and experience accumulated by the mind thus takes us farther away from directly experiencing the Here and Now. The Ego-dominated mind is unable to imagine the existence of a wisdom that is not manifested in thoughts, accumulated knowledge and experience. 


We are only able to get into the possession of Wisdom and get closer to Truth when and if we realize that all the knowledge and experience concentrated in the mind only hamper us in our awakening to Truth. If we are able to do that, then the Sun rises behind the darkness and sidetracks of the mind, and the light of the Self shines on our life.
Spiritual Scenarios

Our mosaic image of “truth” is realized as a spiritual scenario in our daily life. There may be a number of selfish motivations behind the hunger for experience and quest for completeness, but the spiritual scenarios are rather standard, so they contain lots of similar elements. Let us see a few of these.
One of the common elements in the spiritual scenarios is that every spiritual seeker finds himself or herself a philosophy, a study, a Master, who is very close to him/her. 


This is the starting point. Some of the spiritual seekers believe that the starting point for them is the teachings of Eckhart Tolle: e. g. the endeavour for finding the Now, the Present. Others are attracted to the teachings of Osho, Mooji, or Krishnamurti, and so on.
The second important common element of spiritual scenarios is based upon this. The mind creates an image about the philosophy for itself, trying to comprehend it and weave from it the clothes for the spiritual seeker. 


The clothes vary to a great extent, depending on the chosen starting philosophy and Master. But the fabric always consists of the expectations; how I am supposed to behave, what methods I should use in order to see the spiritual experience offered by the philosophy chosen. For instance: how can I be present in the Now in accordance with the teachings of my master?
A common feature of the spiritual garments thus created is that the owners all expect from the clothes to elevate them from the ranks of the average crowd, helping them to some imagined beauty, imagined love, imagined happiness, some positive experience, positive identity. The mind in this way covers up the seeker’s desire for unity, replacing that desire with these false emotions. The owner will be attracted to such a nicely manipulated garment, not wishing to take it off and leave it behind, as such an outfit lends a powerful sense of false identity to the seeker.
The seeker of truth (that is, a real seeker, and not just someone attempting to implement a scenario rich in spiritual experience) will, however seem through all spiritual scenarios and the spiritual smokescreen thus created.
