Practice Makes Awareness, Passivity Makes Stupid

The true spiritual consciousness usually requires active practice:
 
“Occultists tend to say that anybody who engages in intensive spiritual practice will figure out what’s actually going on — the problem with dogmatic religions is that their theology is constructed by intellectuals and made official by politicians, rather than being created and taught by practicing mystics, so it’s no wonder it’s all such a jumble of half-truths and outright malarkey.”
 
This principle is just as true of political and economic participation. Only active participation can render one aware and in contact with reality. By contrast, any notion of politics and economy which is mediated by corporate system-coordinated intellectuals and enshrined as policy by politicians is guaranteed to diverge radically from reality. Anyone who follows this fake path will know only fake things.
 
Consider the status quo mode of “politics”: Passively sit, passively receive propaganda from schools and media. Vote when told and for whom you’re told. Sign petitions when NGOs tell you, and sign what they say.
 
This is hardly a way to understand anything about political or economic reality.
 
Same for the economic status quo: Get a “job” or be “unemployed”, either way passively exist within or in relation to a hierarchy. Obey orders at your job, or obey the order to look for a job. All of this because you’re an atom of a religion called Mammon which requires constant rote repetition of rituals which require exchange of mystical tokens called “money”, and which requires reverence toward a mystical essence called “property”, where it comes to every part of nature. Nature itself doesn’t exist, only its property reflection on the wall of the cave.
 
 
This is hardly a way to understand anything about economic or physical reality.
