Spiritual Thoughts for the Lazy Seeker

Leave us your thought, or a famous quote that has inspired you.

Enlightened self-interest is wisdom. Everything has a cost and you will have to pay in one way or another. If you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t, I feel it’s better to do what you will and accept the consequences.

Scientology was based on many of the old teachings and its creator admits to this in his own writing. He just sought to refine it. Make it more intelligible and accessible.

Smiles start diplomacy. Conflict resolution without blood shed. Gallons and gallons of too much blood shed and it wasn’t from passion. Was actually very cold. Indoctrinated passion…unnatural.

Your inner life is your outer life. Your second life is your first life. Your fantasies are your reality.

To the degree that you defer to the wisdom of this life that brought someone so amazing as you into being, accept that you are meant to be, and feel, and have desires, and take actions according to the dictates of your heart.

There is truth in the world. There is a way in the world. As Sting said, “There is a deeper way than this.” And it is expressed in stillness.

To the degree that any way becomes an object, it ceases to have any truth. Because truth is life and life truth, and we live still in still moments.

There is stillness in the world and there is stillness in the mind. They echo each other. The observer and the observed.

From the stillness all things arise in their perfected forms. What causes things to degrade is an accumulated static. Noise kills.

Look within and look around. You are not lost.

Hi, low and in between also. You should always greet people however they approach you. I think we should greet people with the word “Sideways”, it’s much more dynamic.

Your literal reality is part of the math that’s being done. You are the value that the universe is trying to get a sum for.

If you wonder why and what it all means, you have a spiritual life.

We are a unique voice in a grand chorus, having a depth and range that is powerful enough to echo throughout infinity itself.

The world is not a machine, You can’t fix it. You can only scar it or let it heal and grow.

Before progress, you just lived your life. After progress, you’ll just live your life.

Contemplating god/the gods is an excellent practice. It structures our perception of our narrower lives in a useful way. Even if your highest principle is an abstract notion, it serves the same purpose.

Post-modernism let’s us laugh at the sinister takeover of the planet. The infinite regress keeps your doubts certain and your ideas unsure. If you have a good idea, it might be a post-post-modern one and not a pre-post-modern one. Who knows. Test the waters.

    Paramahansa Yogananda wrote that we really don’t have that much free will! I agree.

      We have free will, but it is like a dog on a leash we are free to a certain degree.Our physical bodies get too hot we die or too cold and we die. Our minds and spirits have more freedom, but there seem to be limits too.

      Merge with the pure consciousness and leave all limits behind……….

    If you truly want peace STOP LOOKING FOR IT! When you accept your non-peace it is instantly transformed into peace.

  3. Roger Sasser

    God has given us all free will. He showed us this in the Garden of Eden when Eve and Adam chose to disobey Him. This free will act of disobedience led to spiritual death for them and all of their descendents. God than gave us a way to be once again made alive spiritually. He gave His Son Jesus Christ – who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, suffered punishment on the cross, died and rose again. It is our free will to make a decision to turn from our sin and trust Him as our personal Savior. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. No person comes to God the Father except through Him. Read the Gospel of John.

      In the bible god says ‘there is no freewill, only my will doesn’t he?

      “The Bible teaches that there is no free will. Examining Exodus, Ecclesiastes 7, Ephesians 1, Ephesians 2, Acts 13, Romans 8, Roman 9, 2 Timothy, 2 Thessalonians, Titus 3:4-5 and Revelations, we see that God’s plan overrides our free will; those that do good do the specific good that God predestined them to do, and all others are ruled by Satan because God sends “powerful delusions” to them. The Christian Bible frequently states that God creates our future and decides our fates, no matter what our own will is. It constantly denies that we have free will. Some of the foremost Christians in history have taught that there is no free will, including St. Augustine (one of the four great founders of Western Christianity1), Martin Luther (founder of Protestantism) and John Calvin.”

    Please stop racism. When you hate others you also hate yourself, because there is more similarities than differences between races.

    “Treat humanity, whether within your own person or that of another, always as an end, never as a means only”. – Kant, 1785

    We are already there, we are enlightened, we are blessed, we just have to awaken to the fact.

    • Nishkam Prem

      enlightened are always aware and awakened for their all actions, if not, they are enjoying illusion of an enlightened and it is enough to remain happy until truth is faced.to be awakened itself is an enlightenment prear to any thought and action.

  7. Lori Campbell

    Seeking means to have a goal; but finding means to be free, to be receptive, to have no goal. Perhaps we are seekers, but in striving towards our goals, we do not see whats under our noses, which unintentionally makes one appear to be a lazy seeker..Oh to walk in someone elses shoes and feel the thorn that is ever so slowly working its way into the sole.

    Hi Travis,
    This is more of a question about an individual’s world view.
    Can you comment on the idea that an individual no matter their age, projects their world view even into out of body experiences.
    I have read many OBE’S and i wonder if you could comment on the idea that what the individual sees in their encounters will be dictated by their worldview???

    • Travis

      The answer is yes with qualifications. What they see in their encounters is not dictated exclusively by their individual worldview. What people think of as their world view is typically narrow. People think it is just an idea and that is not true. One’s worldview consists of everything they are connected to.

      One inherits deeper perceptions from their family blood line, from their cultural ancestory and from their environmental contact. A caucasian person in Japan is still going to see Japanese things, but they’re not going to see it as clearly as a Japanese.

      Language is not only a contstruct in the human brain. The artefacts of language also manifest in the astral with the attendant relationships, and this is true for anyone who is a master of language at any age. Music manifests on that level defining the relationship between constructs in an emotional context. Things with which they have rapport will also manifest in their experience. So if they have a rapport with cats, then aspects of the cat worldview will show up in their experience.

      The vividness of what they see is determined by the depth of their connections. It is unlikely that anyone will see what is not in this broadly defined worldview.

    There is no freedom in the self. It is all trapped in desires, fears and other emotional messes. The ego is a bundle of past thoughts. there is no freedom to it whatsoever. Spiritual freedom awakens in you the moment you are devoid of the idea of having a self.
