"Following a guru on the inside, which is what you have been doing,
is just as bad as following a guru on the outside."
As I said before - the only guru I follow is within me and everyone of us has
that same guru within us. Luke 17:21: "...behold, the kingdom of
God is within you." I'll take that direction over what you wrote
- any day.
"A true soul, or aspect of source, would always ALWAYS lead you to
the TRUTH which is: your body is THE most important facet of spirituality and it
is fundamentally who YOU are; whether you are floating around in some light
realm or taking a dump on the toilet."
Body and spirit are completely different. Everybody on the Planet has a
"true soul" within themselves and that's what we are here to do - to
find it. Your body is only a temporary temple for you the spirit and your
spirit - your true source, is leading you in every step you take whether it is
in prayer, hitting your spouse, or the murder of your worst enemy. You are
here to learn to follow the path that you mapped out before you as spirit took a
body. Once again, to learn your "true soul" simply do as a
spiritual leader taught 2,000 years ago and look within yourself.
"In fact, thinking about anything is a body energy and will not
benefit you for spiritual pursuits"
"Simply nonsense. Thoughts and emotions are energies that need to be
integrated with the physical body for genuine spiritual pursuits to be
actualized. Body energy is deeply, profoundly vital to spirituality. Your
statement could not be any more ridiculous."
Thoughts and emotions are all body energies - not spiritual energies.
Turn off your thoughts for a few minutes. Just allow yourself to be.
Body energy can be used to learn about spirit. The energies that are
constantly moving in your chakras and energy system are available to heal you -
if you turn within and acknowledge them.
"You claim to have only followed your own truth for the past 30 years
but someone, or something at some point in time gave you the erroneous idea that
you are a shining bright light and you are not your sexuality or your emotions,
and that body energies will not benefit you for spiritual pursuits. In other
words, you have been following the programming of others instead of learning to
recognize who and what you are, which is obviously your body."
I take my direction from a very good source who in Matthew 5:14 said: "You
are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden."
All you have to do to find the light within is to look there - and that goes
for everyone on the Planet. To believe that you are your sexuality and
emotions is a naive, childish view of reality. Love (4th chakra) has no
connection whatsoever with sex and emotions (2nd chakra) - and never will.
1 John 4:8 "Whoever does not love does not know God, because
God is love."
Do you really think that that verse says that "God is sex and
