Spirituality - selfish, "self" serving.
Updated: Feb 21, 2019
We seem to cling to anything that we find a spec of comfort in like a magnet to metal. WHY?
#Spirituality seems to be a human-centric, self-indulgent understanding of only the “self.” Putting #you at the #center or at least simply revolving around the #individual- the #human individual. We live in a #world full of a wide #variety of #species which includes us. We have contributed to killing off hundreds if not millions of species as we've thrived but we are still hung up on #me, #myself and #I. Understanding oneself if important, I agree but to be hung up on oneself as if the world revolves around us is, frankly, idiotic in today's world where #information is so readily, easily available and accessible. I mean scholarly information more so than Bullsh!t information which is rampant in all forms of #media.
#Science is the scrutiny, observation, analysis, dissection of #all things- including #you. It is good to understand yourself but it is not beneficial to dive deep into the stagnating, cesspool of your #ego. Spirituality- its teachings, sayings et. all is great for self-observation but we must expand our horizons by gauging at the greater observable #universe arounds us. Many who follow or find significance in spirituality seem to be hooked on it merely because it gives them a sense of comfort and something to cling on to simply because it aligns with their view of the world.
Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep thoughts can be winnowed from deep nonsense. - Carl Sagan
People claim they aren't religious but spiritual yet they both cling to an #idea, #philosophy, stories in a dogmatic fashion when many great "spiritual" teachers themselves teach and encourage individuals not to be dogmatic and rigid. Instead individuals give into their dogmatic deeply ingrained tendencies without realization. People fail to realize what the teachers are trying to convey to them and instead cling onto ideas that fits their model of what the #world is and how it is supposed to be. Never do they scrutinize themselves and seek further answers that may be contrary to what they choose to believe, no consideration is given to evidence and fact.
Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less. - Marie Curie
