The physical-spiritual connection and delusions

It is so important that one develops a strong spiritual connection to the challenging physical reality one exists in right now on this Earth! Spiritual strength comes from this connection with this resistant substance that challenges us and brings out more of what we are capable spiritually. We need to be focused on the hard reality that this physical substance provides. Spiritually what we put our energy into becomes real to some degree. The problem is that if what we put our energy into spiritually does not align well with the physical reality we are all spiritually connected to, then it takes a lot of extra energy into it to support it! The more delusional a belief, the more energy is wasted supporting that belief and the less one is able to maintain a strong grip on the hard reality we are part of. People who are quite delusional in what they believe spiritually can be quite confident in their beliefs especially if they are part of a group or organization that helps support that delusional belief.

In times of crisis is when beliefs(spiritual theories) get really challenged as to how well they actually work. Those who train their body hard doing exercises that improve the physical-spiritual connection require spiritual theories that really enhance their connection to reality in order to do them and do them safely! Doing spiritual crisis style training helps one to get a stronger spiritual connection to reality so that one will be drawn to spiritual theories that really work well in our reality. Actions and results count a lot in this challenging reality we are part of. Those who actually do the hard work required to become strong and aware spiritually can become really confident spiritually as a result of how well their training works and how well they know they can perform in a crisis situation. People who are delusional can project a lot of confidence and be quite arrogant, but are very reliable when really challenged and the bubble they created to protect their delusion is threatened.
This world is heading toward a crisis, since we are not facing reality well enough in a technological age that demand so much more out of us spiritually than any previous period in our history on this Earth! We need to advance a lot more spiritually so that we develop the spiritual maturity(grip on reality)required to effectively deal with the serious problems that exist in this world. When scientific advancement gets ahead of our spiritual maturity to handle it, we must advance further spiritually or we will be in deep trouble. We really need to develop more rational, reality based spiritual theories that help us to better cope with the intense challenges that now exist on this Earth. We really need to become a lot less delusional spiritually.

Spiritual energy invested in supporting wild conspiracy theories!

When big events happen on the world scene that are traumatic and cause quite a bit of political upheaval often the whole truth is hard to find since life is so complicated and often all the facts are just not discoverable. People who expect more of the truth than the official one and that is possible to obtain, will find many sources that will offer a different, but distorted version of what really happened that are presented by people who will come up with conclusions that fit a world view that demonizes certain people with power in this world and gives them credit for being able to pull off things beyond their level of competency. I am into hard evidence before drawing conclusions and an leery of those who tend to not have a very balanced perspective on how this complicated reality works. A lot of innocent people are convicted of crimes in this world when the evidence is not really solid, but they appear to be guilty to a lot of people. People have been put to death, who were later found to be innocent. So, it is so important to be very careful about jumping to conclusions without really solid evidence and to make sure your sources are reliable and do not present a distorted view of the reality of a situation due to having a distorted vision of this world and certain groups with power that exist in it.

Conspiracy theories may be intriguing and satisfying to how one would like to picture this world, but they are rarely a very accurate version of what has really occurred.  The portion of the truth that really counts has a lot of power contained in it and will eventually come out and be accepted by most of the informed public. It just takes too much effort to hide the truth from the public when it is backed up by enough evidence from credible sources. People like to believe they are smarter than others and thus have a better version of the truth than others, but one has to be careful about allowing ones ego to become too inflated as to how much of the truth one is capable of obtaining. Belief in wild conspiracy theories can eat up a lot of ones spiritual energy defending them within oneself and outside oneself and can distort ones vision of this world and a lot of the people in it. The part of the truth that is solid and obtainable when it comes to big events happening in this world has its own very strong energy and can not be readily hidden. The established order in this world may not be perfect, but they are not as messed up as a lot of people believe, or as competent at pulling off the great deceptions some people are so ready to believe they are.

We have a lot of delusionary energy in this world and fringe/extremist groups tend to feed off of this. A lot of delusionary people can appear quite credible! Con men are all over the place with some of them believing the distortions of reality that they come up with. Conspiracy theories can dominate the internet with more and more people elaborating in an imaginative way on the theory. The established version of what happened can readily be buried in an internet search engine by a sea of articles supporting a conspiracy theory. To those who are psychologically predisposed to believe in these theories this can make these theories seem so much more credible. I am into intense physical-spiritual/meditative training geared to give one a stronger spiritual grip on reality. It is not easy to get a stronger grip on reality so that one will develop the intuition required to sense what people/sources are reliable and what version of the truth is most credible and in spiritual harmony with how our reality works..

Misinformation and conspiracy theories and not enough truth

There is so much misinformation available on the internet, and not enough effort made to debunk it.  Conspiracy theories that appear like they are based on a lot of hard facts are everywhere.  People have to realize the truth is complicated and can be easily spun and manipulated to support the extreme views of people who do not have a solid spiritual grip on reality.   We do live in a world where people are constantly spinning the facts to fit their world view or support the position they have a personal bias for.   One of the reasons we have so many believers in conspiracy theories is because we do not do that well at presenting really accurate factual information about what is really happening in this country.  The media is partially to blame, since it tends to often be biased toward one side or the other, rather than representing things from an objective well research position.

We have a lot of spiritual permissiveness in this world where people are willing to let their imagination go wild and not do the work required to find out what is really reasonable/rational  to believe in.  Everything in this reality is underlied by the spiritual.  Ones ability to see things clearly, and to be intuitively drawn to  more reliable sources  depends an awful lot on how strong a spiritual grip one has on reality.  We live in a world with its predominating spiritual beliefs/theories  do not align us that well with reality and which results in the messed up spiritual state this world is.  Until we advance further in our spiritual theories and training techniques we will continue to not do well at doing the required research to produce reliable sources of information about the nature of the society we are part of and the serious problems that exist in it.

I am not going to reach people who put too much of their spiritual energy into supporting wild conspiracy theories. I avoid overly polarized views of what is happening in this world. It takes hard spiritual training to develop the intuition required to figure out how people in power tend to think and act. It is easy to project the worst motives or overly simplistic motives onto people. It is easy for a lot of people to create or buy into delusional presentations about what is actually happening in this world. There are lot of sources that appear to present the truth. One can develop ones intuition so as to better figure out what presentation represent best how things really tend to happen in this world.

I have a lot of blog posts on this site related to spiritual theories and techniques that interface well with the challenging physical reality we exist in.  Here is a link to my meditative walking blog post:    https://astrogoodwin.wordpress.com/2016/10/04/meditative-walking-developing-a-stronger-spiritual-connection-with-the-physical/

PAIN

Here I focus on the positive side of pain. Pain exists for a reason and handling it well can be used to help one grow stronger both physically and spiritually. Physical pain can help one read ones body, so one can better push ones limits in a demanding physical exercise program, and learning to handle(cope with)emotional/spiritual pain can help one to become better at handling in a positive way the whole spectrum of emotions with all their intensity that are part of life.
The more pain one can handle the more truth one can handle. It is painful to have ones delusions/fantasies shattered! It is painful to face a stronger dose of reality. Life’s lessons are often painful. Pain can tend to wake people up spiritually. Growing stronger spiritually requires one learn to handle the painful emotions of life really well. I train in a way that puts me in very difficult and uncomfortable spiritual/emotional states for a reason. It is hard to bring more spiritual truth to a world that tends to be addicted to autocratic type spiritual beliefs and not that open to more rational/practical spiritual beliefs that are designed to connect one more strongly to this reality we exist in here, and enable us to make a positive difference spiritually here as a result. Our world is really messed up spiritually because the predominating spiritual beliefs that exist here are inadequate!
