    I think there are two forces that lead to this:
    1) Basic memetic selection. Most people aren't up for deep truth-seeking, therefore variants of spiritual traditions that are less insistent on that part will tend to be more successful.
    2) Post-hoc normalcy. If you think of successive spiritual traditions as iterating on each other, getting closer to the truth each time, then we would expect there to always be a mixture of vanguard spiritualists and traditionalists. Prophet A sees the flaws with the status quo and makes a best guess at the truth of the matter. A-ism is initially shunned but gradually accepted as its merits become clear. Prophet B sees the flaws with A-ism and makes a best guess at the truth of the matter. B-ism is initially shunned but gradually accepted as its merits become clear. Repeat ad infinitum.

    Both of these apply to all truth-seeking systems, not just ones we'd label spiritual.

    it's true. it's the same for anything. the masses ruin it all. religion, politics, art, science, anything. 80% of people are meant to be at the bottom of the pyramid, consooming, fricking, and dying, and making sure the 20% can truly create and reach the heights of spirit. even then the masses won't understand it, because they are blind. it's not for them anyway.

    Not true.
    Kabbalah never belonged to Judaism.
    Christianity built catacombs under Rome in the days when they were small and persecuted and they didn't have designated plots of land to bury their dead.

    It might be a quirk of modern autism to turn any and every collective noun into an identity. Like anons that believe board culture is real and post in threads they have no business just to say "I don't like this format".

      False.

      Yeah well that's what the author in OP's picture is partially saying. That religions originally were serious systems for enlightenment, not (especially nowadays) this trendy trad larp that seems to be popular among chuds or the dogmatic bs that is common with the average Christian.

        Agree with this and I think nowadays it's even trendy, which I think is pretty ridiculous.

        This.

    What book is this from? The core idea seems plausible.

      I've read the book twice and I wish I could find the exact book, but I just haven't been able to find it. I thought it was Israel Regardie's The Tree of Life: A Study in Magic but apparently it's not, it's some other book from the same author.

        Thanks, that narrows it down quite a lot already. I'll likely come across it some day.

    Those are a lot of words. I think anyone who writes this many words, is still trying to prove themselves, and is thus nowhere even close to enlightenment.

    It’s true.
    As despicable and downright annoying the elites are they’re right on this point that the masses are dumb cattle, actually worse because at least cows are fairly benign creatures. Just look at how "normal, well-adjusted" people treat others who merely act, talk, or dress differently. They end up tearing them to shreds like a bunch of animals I’ve seen it time and time again and I bet every real self-aware person is very familiar with this.
    Now imagine being one of the original Christians in Rome back when it was still about enlightenment and transcendence. Well you don’t have to imagine because their persecution is well documented.

    It’s simply impossible for them to understand. They’re locked inside a small box and worse they WANT to stay inside the box, and those are ones with at least a snowball’s chance in hell.
    Like try talking to a stereotypical normalgay about anything, say consciousness or ego, even on a very basic surface level. Either their eyes will glaze over and they’ll give you the fluoride stare or they’ll process it for a while and then completely forget it and return to their tiny box with the herd.
    And this is actually the best-case scenario, at worst they end up with a distorted understanding of your attempt at communicating your ideas and they think you’re an enemy of the tribe they fear and hate and need to destroy.
    For example, try going over to /misc/ and talking specifically about summoning demons or kabbalah and remember that /misc/ is made up of people who aren’t completely asleep.
    You end up having to water down the original ideas by bringing them down to their vibrational level which defeats the entire purpose of communication.

    It’s why any spirituality worth it’s salt is entirely voluntary and depends on the individual to come forward and ask. Gatekeeping is essential.

    I don't really know what he means. The Bible hasn't changed. You can still read the same radical message it preached 2000 years ago.

    They are saying that in order to make spirituality mainstream it has to be made relateable to the majority. Religon used to be relateable but times change and as a result the relateability to scriptures has diminished.

    OH SO THAT IS WHAT ITS CALLED
    the description of chod here is a literal description of one of the strangest experiences of my life, a couple weeks after an AL-LAD trip i was walking home at night from the gym, and i guess it was the hyperventilation from running on the threadmil earlier but i completely dissociated and was looking at my body from the perspective of the environment around me, i saw myself decomposing and dying, and i saw the cycle of decomposition, where the elements that made up my body became the body of other things around me, and then i saw me becoming food for myself in an endless cycle of transformation, death and rebirth, i saw how i decomposed and how everything that ate me also died and became other things and how my bones became the dirt that plants grow on, and the water in my body became rain.
    beautiful and spontaneous experience, never had a name for it until now
