The composition of human life

So true! I wonder what would happen if we all said to ourselves, “I wonder what life would look like with free energy?” When we say or think “I wonder,” we trigger our imagination and consciousness to respond. As Jon says, “More to come.” Indeed!

    This article is well said. I appreciated this: “They give in, they surrender, they accept. They even come to believe that surrender is an advanced spiritual state.” This is sad but true, and also struck me as funny.

    • Yes, it’s interesting, because there IS some value in surrender when you have truly tried everything else. Oftentimes, the relief follows and then ushers in solutions after deep surrender. The trouble with the New Age movement is that it teaches passivity as “surrender,” and that has allowed really good people to passively endorse all manner of atrocities in the name of “being spiritual.”

    Yep, Laura, I 100% agree with you on passivity being confused as “spiritual”. I was raised by parents who were part of a “spiritual path” (i.e. cult), and my parents hid their shadow selves and pasts behind this. It has taken me my whole life (and I am still working on it!) to untangle passivity and spirituality and to learn to discern through surface illusions and trust myself and protect myself from harm (as growing up with abuse also damages one’s clear perception of self versus reality…and self worth issues create unhealthy patterns in relationships). To me, allowing passivity to endorse all manner of atrocities in the name of “being spiritual” is one of the sickest and ugliest things and gives spiritualty a bad name, and currently keeps me away from spiritual groups. This topic of New Age spirituality versus honest, authentic, mystical/magical and unique self transformation/evolution, is one of the reasons that I appreciate and resonate with many of the articles on your blog. I can see so many of the macro patterns of the old patriarchy fit into my family heritage and bonds I have been working so hard to break free of.
