Forget Spirituality; The Art of Being Human – Karma Yoga Daily
Spiritual bypassing happens when people can’t be real with each other or themselves. When they can’t be authentic. It’s an escape from the self and an escape from being raw. Pretending is easier than facing the truth; that the person who stares back at you in the mirror is a human being like everyone else.
Perhaps for our real “spiritual life” to begin, we must first ask the question,”Who am I?” “Where have I come from? What is my path of arrival? What will be the dock of my departure?”
Maybe we need to just remove this “spiritual” concept from our vernacular and identify in a different way. The old religions seem unable to hold people to their narrow worldview. So the new age has taken people hostage and these people are the new “spiritual.” Let’s just be human.
Being human is more than enough for me!
