Choice between spiritual entertainment and serious spiritual development is the discipline; of applying the steps of purification to change energy state. Consequently what is the nature of average humanity; who are ruled by their ego? Naturally this is to attend fine performances of spiritual entertainment. Most of all to be thoroughly entertained; by the conductor or presenter of spiritual knowledge out the front on the stage. However as a result the audience is being charged; a big fat entry price for admittance. Which is indeed completely appropriate. Because the focus of responsibility rests with the spiritual entertainer and not with the audience. However what is our alternative?
Especially noteworthy is that serious spiritual development. In conclusion can only ever be achieved; when the focus of responsibility is adopted by the individual querent. Appropriately where the choice has been made to achieve real spiritual growth. Accordingly this is the movement; from a lower energy state to a higher energy state. Since the spiritual aspirant in question has made the choice of personal responsibility; they are only seeking information from others on how to achieve their stated aim or objective. Which is simply to learn and apply the steps of purification.
Spiritual knowledge leads to spiritual development
Most noteworthy is that pure spiritual knowledge; is always given free of charge. Because its root motivation is service by the soul. When you go to a serious spiritual development instructor; the focus of responsibility is opposite to the more usual entertainment approach. Naturally the only price or sacrifice for the service is to apply or practice; what you have learned through being a participant. It is a sad reflection upon humanity as a whole; that spiritual entertainment is far more popular these days.
Spiritual entertainment is more popular
This is because as soon as the spiritual presenter starts giving to many directions; on what the audience needs to be practicing or homework. Consequently the audience will soon be lost; with its associated source of income. In addition finally in the end very little audience will be left. When the instructor starts insisting on timely homework application; which is not very profitable at all.
Since the ego is completely; captivated and enthralled by the brilliant performance. The ego loves to think and believe; that it is achieving real progress while still maintaining the status quo. Which is its position of power over the direction of the entity. Any good spiritual entertainer can bang away about surrender; while navel gazing absolute truth for all eternity, for what final result? Here is another timeless secret! The net result is more pain and suffering experience; by staying in the wheel of rebirth. Consequently it is only by implementing; the steps of purification. Real results will ever be achieved.
Spiritual entertainment provides seeds of awareness
However spiritual entertainment does provide a very valuable service to the community; in that it brings the seeds of awareness. Humanity needs the freely scattered seeds of spiritual knowledge; that they may ignite and grow in receptive minds.
Furthermore lets now talk about; the Kundalini primal energy located at the base of the spine. Furthermore it is usually symbolized; in the literature as the serpent power. This power will either fuel the passion impulse; when channeled through the lower centers or chakras in the unconscious state. It will become compassion when raised to a higher level in the conscious state. Especially relevant it is the same energy; directed to a different purpose. Interestingly the only difference between these two energy states of being; is the degree of effort applied.
Insight meditation is the conscious process of increasing energy from the over soul. Which will drive the Kundalini force higher in the body; from the base chakra at the base of the spine to the crown chakra at the top of the head. At a certain point in your meditation or spiritual maturity; you will become directly aware of this energy. As a natural consequence this will give you the wisdom of direct experience. Raising of this energy is what will eventually lead; to the achievement of the energy state of enlightenment. Do you ever think anyone functioning only on the spiritual entertainment level; will ever experience this energy state?
