Spirituality offers much: rituals, activism, personality worship, psychic fireworks, social pleasure, defined levels of attainment.
When spirituality offers much, it is like a stamp album. The shape and size of each stamp is outlined. Into each outline you stick the appropriate stamp that you go out and find.
The best of spirituality doesn’t offer a blank sheet of paper, let alone the possibility of finding stamps.
The burden is then placed on you to make offers to spirituality. You offer all your integrity and all your crap. You offer all your own stamps, not ones outlined for you to match up. But there is no album to paste them into.
By offering you nothing at all, spirituality allows you to give up everything. What is left can’t be outlined as a shape or depicted on a stamp.
There are many ways of accessing a spirituality that offers you nothing. However, you must stumble into the realization that it is the next step.
