Is today’s spirituality genuine?


I took a break from blogging for 2 reasons:

a) I have been busy;

b) I feel better blogging when I have something to say (or to get off my chest) rather than just making up daily blogs for the sake of google ratings.

However I come back a little disillusioned. In the last few years of my spiritual journey I discovered that there were things I used to want to do that I did not want to do anymore, and other new ones entered my life that, even now, are propelling me on a quite different path.

But the more I read, learn and meet people the more it seems that the whole thing of Love, Light, and working this way is really just a facade for ego boosting and money-making.

Now don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of genuine and loving people out there and we all need to make a buck to pay our bills.

But what I am seeing more and more that makes me so uncomfortable are people playing God. With internet access being so huge so many claim to be this or that, or being able to give you this or that. I have (many times over) witnessed so-called “qualified” coaches and therapist telling someone suffering from depression that it was solely their fault for being negative. Or people charging great amount of money to “rid” someone of negativity. People claiming to cure terminal illnesses. While some of this has probably always been around, the internet now is making it oh so easy for people who are desperate or in unbearable pain to reach out to these people. And there is also the issue that of course these affects the reputation of genuine therapists, coaches etc.

I don’t know if there is a solution for this. But it saddens me to see it. As an empath I feel sometimes the person pain while they reach out. And therein lies the power. I’ll stop ranting now, but I hope that someday we will all reach the higher consciousness needed to realise that in order to help others we first need to help and heal ourselves.

Namaste 🙂
