Spirituality Lite

Stream of Consciousness Blogging


By Frater Bovious
9th Level Adept, THOOTR

The following riveting exchange was posted by Uncle Buck to the wrong article, and consequently did not have the hoped for response from the teeming masses still reading this blog (That being me, my mom, and strange people leaving messages about cigarettes and real estate opportunities, which I have mostly deleted from the comments section, and of course Uncle Buck and Occasionally, Knecht.)

So, here.

Why can't you comment? You commented here. Is this some kind of zen koan?

I commented “here”, about something “there”. I didn’t expect “here” and “there” to be the same place, so i suppose there is a zen-like element to this (or do I use “zen-like” inappropriately as a label for an unexpected result?).

I digress…I commented “here”, counting on your comprehensive knowledge of your own blog territory to hear my small voice lost in the wilderness. I expected direction to “there”, imagine my surprise to find out I was “there” in the first place. Now I have to collect my thoughts all over again.

Regarding: “Why is the Pope a Rock Star? I have a theory…”. Well so do I!

“We have a new Pope…”

“Sayings of the Dalai Lama…”

“Good karma/Bad Karma”

“Confucius say…”

These are all a kind of “Spirituality Lite” - The warm fuzzy feeling that comes from thinking about someone or something that represents the sacred, the holy, the divine without investing in any actual spiritual development of your own.

Very popular (tastes great! Less filling!)

I am not being high-and-mighty. I speak from experience.

OK, here's your friggin' comment, weiner boy:

I think you make an interesting point. Not quite a miter, but interesting nonetheless.
