Do Not Fall To The “Spiritual” Trap

Advertisement in a costly magazine. Consultation with a spiritual healer having expertise in spirituality since 20 years, future teller etc and then  “Third Eye Activated”. Fees is 5,000 rupees per consultation. 

1. So, for a “third eye activated” spiritual healer, making money is important.
2. Spiritual healer does not have her own power to attract the needy people. She is opting for advertisement in a costly magazine to attract her clients.

Spirituality and marketing never go hand in hand.
Spirituality and advertisement are almost antonyms.

With growing spirituality within ourselves, we tend to cut down on our desires, we cut down on worldly demands, our focus goes inwards, we become more and more self conscious.
How can we achieve all these from a person who is advertising and also charging money from you? How can we acheive all these from a person resolving to worldly means to get her clients?
How can you become spiritual, by consulting a money-minded person who is inviting you by marketing?

Chocolates for activation of Chakras:
Nothing can be as sleazy as this. Yoga Shastra describes Chakra activation and related spiritual experiences by
– following stringent Brahmacharya,
– following strict diet and lifestyle
– following the path of no desire
– following the path of maintaining the body and mind at highest positions by Yoga, Pranayama and meditation.
Even with all these, there is no guarantee that the Chakra activation, spiritual experiences would happen in a single lifespan. It is a continuous journey towards truth and light spanning many lives.

Do not do all these hard work, continue your materialistic world, just eat this chocolate and see that your Chakra is activated?!
Gimme a break!

Naked Yoga
Of course there are many Sanyasis who roam naked. They have left  all their materialistic attachments. They are one with the Almighty. They became naked “after” realizing that the world is myth and ultimate knowledge is the only truth. – Brahma Satya Jagan Mithya 

They did not become naked “before” the realization dawned upon them.
So, if you, without any control of mind, without any growth in the spiritual field, go to a drastic Naked Yoga, the mind will get distracted and it will fall to a lower plane.

Beer Yoga, Sex Yoga – Oh well! Let us not talk about them at all.

Be very careful. 
1. Any spiritual experience offered as instant fix, a readymade remedy, “heal all your bad Karma in 5 minutes” is a myth. That person is fooling you.
2. Spiritual growth cannot happen by eating chocolates
3. If a spiritual entity is indulging marketing to attract spiritual seekers, I would not trust them.
4. Yoga for healthcare is different than Yoga for spiritual growth. The former can be a step for the latter.

  1. Do you have any workable ideas how an Enlightened Person can reach all the people in the world who can seriously benefit from his Enlightened State. Is Spirituality the most unnecessary thing in the world. All those who do not seek spiritual guidance on their own are they not in need spiritual guidance. If they need it then how will they know about it. Who are the spiritual masters you trust and have you put in any effort to pass on the information to people who may need it. What are the self defeating definitions that are used to eliminate spirituality from the current world. Will my comment get your attention.

    Best of Luck. Love You in Oneness. Open and Receiving.

    • Not an expert in the field of spirituality. Here are my answers
      1. An Enlightened person can reach all people with love and prayer. An Enlightened person will have unconditional unreasonable, unimaginable yet unending love towards all creatures of this universe, let alone humans. Whenever such a person prays, he prays for the welfare of all.

      2. Spirituality is the most necessary thing in this world. It guides us in the path of truth.
      3. All those who do not seek spiritual guidance, they need spiritual guidance, if not today, tomorrow. They should seek spirituality only when they get the inner calling. It cannot be forced upon them.

      5. What are the self defeating definitions that are used to eliminate spirituality from the current world?
      Non sensical Yoga derivations such as Beer Yoga, Naked Yoga etc,
      Putting tough, confusing words to explain / define spirituality – such as spiritual yet not religious
      etc.
      Thanks for the questions.
