Brains are required to push oneself extremely hard spiritually

People often think that people can work extremely hard at something and get nowhere.  But, what is really true is that one can not push yourself really hard if one does not know what one is  doing.  My really challenging spiritual/meditative exercise techniques enable me to get a lot more out of myself without harming myself.  When one pushes oneself really hard it is so easy to injure oneself.  People who work hard, but do not get smarter at how they do it will reach a point where if they push harder they will be unable to stay on the fine line that is required to keep them safe.  Ones needs to program oneself as to the smartest/best ways to do things safely.  When it comes to the spiritual which is wholistic one must have a strong grip on reality and really be tuned into how the spiritual actually works in order to safely push oneself extremely hard.  One also has to understand the physical/biological mechanics of meditation well enough to figure out how to get oneself safely into a really intense emotional/spiritual state and be able to handle it well.  One needs to have the knowledge in the area of physical fitness and nutrition in order to do what it takes to become healthy enough to handle the stress that comes with dealing with really intense and the difficult emotional/spiritual  states that really intense meditative states can put you in.

All strength comes from the physical, since the physical is hard and resistant.  Really effective spiritual training will strengthen ones physical connection with the spiritual and ones grip on the hard reality that we exist in in this physical world.  My meditative walking technique and my dumbbell swing exercise with its intense meditative breathing is really good at connecting one with the really hard part of reality we exist in.  Spiritual character and backbone does not come easy and requires really effective training techniques and the spiritual theories that give one a reason to put up with how difficult/torturous they can be.  Often people who do intense physical exercise refer to it as torture, but they are often not motivated with the most serious spiritual purpose for doing their exercise routine.

Effective spiritual exercise has to be so extremely rough,  since the spiritual deals with our reality at its roughest/harshest and the trauma and emotions that result from it.    We have so many serious problems in this world and those who truly understand these problems and really want to make a positive difference here will readily want to program themselves with the type of spiritual theories that will enable them to connect with our reality at its roughest and deal with the type of torturous spiritual training that can give them the spiritual strength and awareness to become capable of contributing in a really meaningful way to transforming this planet into a more humane place to exist on.   A lot of good  knowledge trial and error is required to become smarter in how you train yourself spiritually so that you can push yourself extremely hard and do so safely.  When pushing the edge spiritually one has to balance on a really fine line and one really has to know what one is doing in order to do this!

Addictive delusionary beliefs are like feel good drugs that have harmful side affects

Why is the Earth so messed up spiritually?  When delusionary(fantasy type) beliefs that do not interface well with the physical reality we exist in dominate over rational practical spiritual theories(theories can be questioned and improved on), then the spiritual climate that exists on the Earth will feel the detrimental affects.  In the advanced technological age we now exist in, it is so important that we improve on the spiritual theories we rely on, and cut down on the degree in which we are delusional in our spiritual understandings!  The serious problems that exist in this world require people that have the emotional maturity to handle them!  Some people are not going to let go of their spiritual delusions that come with a lot of the traditional religious/spiritual ideologies that dominate this planet at this time.  I feel they are willing to harm the quality of life they have with these ineffective delusionary beliefs and even die earlier than they should bringing these beliefs with them into their next life.  Effective guiding spiritual theories can enable one to handle reality so much better and to have a strong enough grip on reality to do what it takes to live a healthier lifestyle and to become better at contributing to improving the spiritual state this world is in.

We live in a world were so many people overindulge themselves in so many way and dull their spiritual senses as a result.  When we owns too many possessions or focuses too much on our physical desires we pay a price spiritually.   We have so many things in this world that can take our focus away from the spiritual and harm our ability to get the most out of ourselves.  Spiritual delusions actually are an indulgence that handicaps our spiritual effectiveness, but do tend to have a pleasant drug like affect to them!  The challenging resistant physical reality we exist in with its cycles is not escapable, because it has all the components needed to get the most out of us spiritually!  You will not escape this challenging physical reality by dying,  the cycle of life and death is unending.  As we face continuous challenges in the cycles we go through within this life, so will we face continuous challenges in the cycles we face in future lives. Those who are really strong and aware spiritually are able to see this physical reality in a very positive light and embrace the challenging aspects of it.  We can not transform our planet into a really great place to exist on, without have quite a different spiritual approach than what now predominates here right now.

We need to be guided by spiritual theories that interface really well with the physical reality we exist in right now, so that we will become good at handling the challenges/problems that exist here.  Pain and hardship come with taking on big challenges in life.  The people who achieve the most are those who overcome the most and that do not give up when faced with adversity and discomfort.    We can not transform this world spiritually into a better place to exist on, if we can not tuned into spiritually/emotionally the painful problems that exist here and be thus motivated to do what it takes to find remedies for these problems.   We do not get any spiritual results in this life or any future life if we do not do the required work to earn them!  The spiritual is a uniting force within us that works best when we use all our capabilities.  Working hard will not be very effective if one does not use ones mind really well to figure out(research) what is likely to bring about the best results.
