What is Spirituality? (Part 2)

Words

An Elephant

In this Kaliyuga (dark age) words are misused. Words are sacred, whether they are used as positive affirmations or mantras, like ‘Om Gum Ganeshaya Namaha’ (calling on God in the form of the elephant to clear all obstacles). However, words have been become abused and inappropriately applied. Words like ‘bad’ and ‘wicked’ have different meanings now. At one time they referred to people who behaved irresponsibly, in a negative and destructive way. In the bible it states… “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” Chronicles-2 7:14.

The word ‘wicked’ referred to negative people as shown in the bible and other historical literary documents. In modern times the words ‘bad’ and ‘wicked’ have different connotations . Now these words appear to laud the behavior and actions of people who consider themselves ‘bad’ and ‘wicked’ and who have made themselves into role models to be followed by the weak minded. What are we saying? That it’s good to follow the bad and the wicked!!! It simply shows that we have a generation of youth who are lost and confused. They are following popularised ideas by blind and confused role models in music, fashion and the film industry. Some of these celebrities have gone as far as to have very little clothes on, in order to become popular to their fans. Others have copied these trends to see how little they can hide. It has become fashionable now to become more body conscious. Celebrities take to carefully exposing certain parts of their body to encourage voyeuristic behavior, as they pout and strut their stuff, wanting to be noticed and not necessarily for their intelligence. Spirituality has taken a backseat as the desires of the masses are manipulated by these behaviors, that tease the maggots of negative tendencies to rise up out of their subconscious, as lustful desires and attachments garnering strength. These neo-gurus have different ideas about spirituality, even if that exists for them at all. They don’t point to the spiritual path to God, they pave the way, spiraling down to despair.

Laws of Nature

Nature

All of Nature is God. The Laws of Nature are God’s Law. If you go against Nature, you go against God. This is as clear as crystal and there is no confusion. When you rape and plunder the Earth, what do you think you are doing? When you torture and kill animals or people, what do you think you are doing? It is your anger, greed, desires and attachments expressing themselves. A time will come, when you have to desist from such actions or pay the consequences. Unfortunately, these days it is not individual men or women, but corporations, large conglomerates or even whole countries responsible for this rapacious mindset, believing that they are the only one of importance, careful of their own self-interest and investment.

It is easy to say, “I am God”, but you have to believe it for it to be true for you, otherwise it is just hollow words. The proof of this is in the way you behave, acknowledging that God is in everyone so you do not lie, cheat, or manipulate anyone. You won’t be attached to anything worldly, whether it is your business, your home, or your pet. You will realise that everything in this world is temporary, only God is permanent. God resides within each of us in the subtle heart chakra in the centre of your chest. There is a lot of confusion about this. Some people believe that God resides in the physical heart. When you speak from the heart, you speak with the guidance from God and not from the mind. If you believe God is within you and watching you, can you pretend to be nice to someone when you actually hate them? You experience Gods’ love, when you are true to yourself and you will feel that love as a warmth within you. When you love someone unconditionally, that love is reflected back to you as a warmth within you.
