Spiritual Barter


IMG_0454Religious followers always have something to ask or give in return, for it is human nature to work on a system of buying and selling something; rarely they are able to purchase on a concept of self awareness. So you will have people offering money, properties, jewelries, Puja’s, rituals, themselves in the grossest way possible in return for things they seek as ultimate goal for now.   The goals in life keep coming up every moment of time and every time this happen the religious inclined people follow the same path of offering grossest things to gain grossest things in return, be it for self or for others it is there. So in all religion they have created a system for the offering to happen in a certain manner and those who follow a certain religious faith in a conceptualized belief system soon fall in the line of the offering as designed by hearsay or writings in the books claimed to be ancient even though too much adaptations and alterations have already occurred with the passage of time and change in location. The system works at the core on the concept of selfishness of ‘I’, ‘Me’ and ‘Myself’.

When people ask me how they can drop those heavy loads of the demand, need and desire, it is really a complicated question. For something one has been carrying for hundreds of years cannot be dropped instantly for the moment it is done, it will create a humongous void within completely breaking the individual instantly.

Someone who wants to walk into Spiritual world, has to work through a system they are accustomed to, sales and buying, but here it is more of barter and it has a small condition of being selfless. So the trick is to work through a way of Spiritual Store where one can receive what one really asks for with something to exchange for in return.  The core of the exchange value is selflessness, sacrifice and unbounded love and compassion, something which the religion promotes for selfish gains. The most shining and valuable thing in Spiritual Shop is the unbounded Love followed by Selfless Sacrifice which allows one to truly let go of the ‘I’, ‘Me’ and ‘Myself’ to understand ‘We’, ‘Our’ and ‘Ourselves’. The deeper and serene the love is one is able to sacrifice in the most simple manner, this in turn relieves one from the Superfluous aspects of life allowing oneself to slowly delve deeper within the self to know and realize the true meaning of Living and being Alive. the more we keep shopping in the Spiritual Shop the more we drop the ‘I’, ‘Me’ and ‘Myself’ allowing one to realize the expanse of the spirit force that is eternally there waiting for one to connect in the most beautiful manner.
