Many people have bought into the idea that it is necessary to gain some special knowledge or insight in order to progress spiritually. Nothing could be farther from the truth, yet some people so desperately want to have special knowledge and special insights they will believe anything. Everything you need for the journey is inside you already, so don’t believe incredible tales – they are unnecessary fictions that never come true, always disappoint, and most often leave you looking more than a little foolish. Worst of all, while you are busy tracking down these hoaxes you waste valuable time that could be used for authentic spiritual practice. Even if you don’t feel called to do spiritual practice at this point, there are better ways to waste your time.
