“The secret of a warrior is that he believes without believing… A warrior, whenever he has to involve himself with believing, does it as a choice, as an expression of his innermost predilection. A warrior doesn’t believe, a warrior has to believe.”

Spiritual, but not religious


I found this piece of writing, but not journalism from the BBC (brought to my attention by my teacher) to be quite amusing:

“Research has suggested “spiritual” people may suffer worse mental health than conventionally religious, agnostic or atheist people. “

What if this spirituality-seeking is an indication that humanity is awakening (or at least trying to)?

What if this is an indication that we have diassociated ourselves from something, experiencing a disconnection and inevitably looking to reconnect?

What if this “mental health” issue is a side-effect of an illussion of our modern lives fading? As if we were kids who just learned that Santa aint real, except we aren’t kids, we’re adults who invested in an entire life, with kids, only to discover that it aint just Santa that aint real …

What if we have been “mentally ill” for a long time but are just now realizing it? That’s a good (though not pleasant) thing isn’t it?

Drinking may be fun, but sobering up … that’s bound to be unpleasant! We’ve had a great ride this past century (or two) … and now comes the sobering up …
