Mystical experiences, ayahuasca, peyote, spiritual books, religions, gurus, they could be the trap that is preventing us from coming down to a simple understanding of what the spiritual process is really about: the discovery of an inner dimension free from the body-mind functioning.
The path is childish if we stay only at that level of understanding of spirituality. It is a necessary step sometimes to go through those things. But the intellectual search will never bring practical and concrete results that will transform our lives totally and forever.It is a form of interest that could start our spiritual search, but soon or later it will become the impediment that will create dependency on intellectual mysticism and spiritual gurus.
The inner process of development is personal. Religions, spiritual beliefs, gurus creating dependency, will be the source of constant dissatisfaction and the feeling of always lacking something that is going to complete us and make us feel a fully integrated human being.
