消費主義
7flow書摘

對靈性消費主義(spiritual consumerism)的省思

「我不在乎你有多靈性。
不在乎你可以在蒸療棚屋中待多長時間。
不在乎你經歷了多少次迷幻旅程,
或者你可以讓身體保持在烏鴉式的能力有多強。
老實說。我真的不在乎。

我也不在乎哪顆星星落在你的出生圖上的甚麼宮位,
你有多少水晶,或飲食的純素程度到哪裡。

我想知道你是個怎樣的人。
儘管感到不適,你是否還能坐在垂死之人的腳邊?
你是否可以好好地跟自己的或我的悲傷在一起,
而不試著給建議或修補?
我想知道你是否能準時赴約,
而不是你的脈輪能量有多閃亮完整。
我想知道你能否在心裡為你愛的人保留愛的空間,
而不顯得自己特別超凡脫俗。

不管你拿了多少線上療癒課程的證照,
曾經住在沙漠或者木屋,
或你已然是個譚崔高手,
這些都無法讓我驚艷。

會使我怦然心動的是
一雙務實而勤奮的雙手。
這雙手會種植作物。
這雙手的主人不管有多累還是會打電話回家,
他愛著孩子,
他會經營一個家庭。

我對你可以如何順利揚升到第五次元,
怎麼進行星際旅行,
怎麼進行靈魂出體的性愛,
我對這些都沒有興趣。

我想看看你如何藉由自己的獨特魔法
融入普通的現實生活中,
如何在周遭事物中找到美和恩典,
以及在關係之中
你可以有多臨在。

我想知道,
你可以出現在這個混亂又美麗的地球上,
去做著艱難而神聖的事情。
我希望看到你能真誠,落地,有同理心,
就像你肯定自我力量,熱力四射又有魅力那樣子。
我想知道,
即使你正所成就,發光發熱
你也可以退後一步,
保持謙卑,繼續保持學生的視角。

真正美麗,性感和真實的是,
無論你的境界超前別人多少,
你都可以繼續為他人喝采。
真正令人青睞的是,
儘管你自己已經變得圓滿富足,
但你還願意為他人付出。
真正有價值的是,
在這個高度精神唯物主義的世界上,
你可以當一個多好的人類。

歸根結底,
我不在乎你有多勇敢。
你工作多有效率,
你有多受歡迎,
甚至你有多開悟。

歸根結底,
我想知道你是個友善的人。是個真實的人。
我想知道,
你可以從寶座上下來親吻大地,
允許頭髮變髒,
允許腳變得泥濘,
並與我們所有人一起跳舞。」

-現代的呼喚,
讓我們從靈性消費主義轉變為回歸人類本然的存在……

“I don’t care how spiritual you are. How long you can melt in the sweat lodge. How many peyote journeys that have blown your mind, or how well you can hold crow pose. Honestly. I don’t. I don’t care what planets fall in what houses on your birth chart, how many crystals you have or how vegan your diet is.

I want to know how human you are. Can you sit at the feet of the dying despite the discomfort? Can you be with your grief, or mine, without trying to advise, fix or maintain it? I want to know that you can show up at the table no matter how shiny, chakra- aligned or complete you are- or not. Can you hold loving space for your beloved in the depths of your own healing without trying to be big?

It doesn’t flatter me how many online healing trainings you have, that you live in the desert or in a log cabin, or that you’ve mastered the art of tantra.

What turns me on is busy hands. Planting roots. That despite how tired you are, you make that phone call, you board that plane, you love your children, you feed your family.

I have no interest in how well you can ascend to 5D, astral travel or have out of body sex. I want to see how beautifully you integrate into ordinary reality with your unique magic, how you find beauty and gratitude in what’s surrounding you, and how present you can be in your relationships.

I want to know that you can show up and do the hard and holy things on this gorgeously messy Earth. I want to see that you can be sincere, grounded and compassionate as equally as you are empowered, fiery and magnetic. I want to know that even during your achievements, you can step back and be humble enough to still be a student.

What’s beautiful and sexy and authentic is how well you can continue to celebrate others no matter how advanced you’ve become. What’s truly flattering is how much you can give despite how full you’ve made yourself. What’s honestly valuable is how fucking better of a human you can be, in a world that is high off of spiritual materialism and jumping the next escape goat for “freedom.”

At the end of the day I don’t care how brave you are. How productive, how popular, how enlightened you are. At the end of the day, I want to know that you were kind. That you were real. I want to know that you can step down from the pedestal from time to time to kiss the earth and let your hair get dirty and your feet get muddy, and join the dance with us all.”

-A modern day call to shifting from spiritual consumerism to returning to human kind… heart inspired by Oriah Mountain Dreamer’s, The Invitation.”
