“Deeper, deeper, somewhere in the deep there is a light*”

I think that the law of attraction is precisely the mystical equivalent of fundamentalist prosperity gospel. I think both of those things are cancers on genuinely transformative spiritualities.

Being depressed or having bad things happen to you doesn’t make you a bad person or less spiritual than anyone else. It’s a candy floss theology that has more to do with toys than wisdom or maturity. It will rot you out from the inside.

Everything my guides have ever taught me has been about transcending the image, the feeble shadow of reality that we carry within our minds. You are more than your mind. You are more than this time and place. Please do not become excessively engrossed because this is the momentary image before your eyes. Remember, listen, hold to what is felt and what cannot be silenced or ignored. Everything is waiting for you if you can loosen your grip just a little bit. End the cycle of insecurity that keeps you here in this one body, in this one time, in this one place. If you want to understand and transcend the conditions of your life I think you are going to be more enlightened by the lucid recollection of the conditions that brought you here than by trying to build a mansion on a foundation of sand and illusion.

* I stole that line from a Kate bush song.

    Thank you. My feelings exactly.
