“Do not repeat after me words that you do not understand. Do not merely put on a mask of my ideas, for it will be an illusion and you will thereby deceive yourself.” Jiddu Krishnamurti
In this week’s podcast I talk about the importance of cultivating a direct relationship with your own spiritual consciousness through communion, which involves listening and waiting for personal revelations, large and small. This communication is often lost when we perform rituals and mantras, or follow specific spiritual programs that fulfill our egos’ need for attainment, yet lead the seeker away from what lies within.
I talk about the birth of the New Age Movement, its roots in the Theosophical Society and the writings of Helena Blavatsky and Alice Bailey. Many of the current popular spiritual beliefs originate in their channelled works, yet people blindly adopt them without examination. I also speak about Jiddu Krishnamurti, who was chosen to be the new world teacher for the Society as a child, but renounced his role and association with all religions and sects in favour of dedicating himself to personal revelation. Communing with your own spiritual guidance aligns you with truth, and allows you to take off the mask of another person’s ideas.
