The Necessary Trick!

Spiritual crisis.

Right. It's the most important, fundamental, foundational crisis of all. What do we believe? Where do we put our faith? How do we live?

It's easy to see the crisis in others. Not so easy in ourselves. I mean, we live the crisis, we experience the failures, the lies, the meanness; we puff up our egos, and at the same time we can feel fear & loathing rising in our chests. Fear and loathing of ourselves.

We search for reasons to live. We look to the next relationship, the next drug, the next kick, the next diversion. It's all just delusion. The answers are not "out there," they are always "in here."

Still, it's not all about us. Out there and in here are delusions too. We need to drop our egos. We need to live in the moment. Reach outside of ourselves, connect to something bigger than ourselves. Even if we have to invent something bigger than ourselves. Believe in believing.

I think of that line: "We don't see the world as it is, we see the world as we are." Change your consciousness, change the world. Open your head, change your mind, open your heart and hands.

Look beyond, behind the mirror. Sometimes the mirror seems like the only reality. It's not. Believe in the reality beyond the mirror. It might sound like a trick. It's a necessary trick.
