Making A Big Deal Of Our Spirituality
We have to let go of our spirituality.
It’s nothing special.
If we make it special, we make ourselves special.
Making a big deal of ourselves and our spirituality is a huge mistake. It’s the ultimate trap. Who are we trying to impress?
It doesn’t matter whether we are religious or not, we are all ordinary people – until we can manifest otherwise.
In the scheme of things, we are only here for a short while, so adorning ourself with pomp looks rather silly – just as silly as those who worship pomp.
pomp: vain and ostentatious display.
We all have Buddha nature, so we are all nothing special.
What is special is making the change from ordinary to Ordinary.
‘Special’ is a designation, and therefore a duality.
There is nothing special in non-duality; it is emptiness.
Special: from Latin specialis, from species, ‘appearance’
Designate: from Latin designatus ‘designated’, based on signum ‘a mark’.
