An excess hinders the spiritual life

April 7th 2022
Even when they want to live a spiritual life, human beings are deformed by today’s widespread habit of filling their minds with all kinds of knowledge and trivial information, and keeping abreast of all the latest news about people and events, without ever doing any work on themselves. Of course, it is thanks to this curiosity that humankind has made such gigantic strides in so many areas. But with regard to the spiritual life, this attitude is highly pernicious. In order to do some genuine spiritual work, you must stick to one system, one philosophy and study it in depth. Otherwise, your psychic organism will suffer in exactly the same way as your physical organism – if you eat all kinds of incompatible foods you become ill and vomit; similarly, your psychic stomach may get indigestion from everything you make it swallow.
