Spiritual Outlets - Maybe not so bad afterall. Maybe.




This is an issue that has me perplexed.

Or maybe, confused. I’m not sure which one.

Lets start at the beginning.

Spiritual outlets were largely unheard in Malaysia. You spiritualist would know them – shops selling crystals, meditation books, peaceful cd’s and what not.

I used to be against all these, for the simple reason being – The commercialization of Spirituality.

The term “spirituality for sale” would just scream at me every time I looked at one of these places. Heaven forbid what I had to endure when I took a step off the cliff of this world and into the the dimension of spiritual retail. What more just looking at it.

And so I was against it. “ You just cant sell spirituality” I used to think.

And this is, as I have said before, spirituality is you. Its a personal thing. It’s what you want it to be. Its what you make it to be. For some people, it painting. Others, meditation and/or hatha yoga. For some others (and lets be open minded here) its sex.

What ever it is that gives you a sense of fulfillment and liberation, its fine. That’s your choice.

What its not is packaged marketing, for sale.

And this, was what I was against.

But as all learning goes, when you can see the various angles, you learn to see a bigger picture.


And that is – Maybe these outlets just really help people find what they are looking for. If a person knows they want something, e.g. a amethyst or lemurian crystal say perhaps, these outlets are there to help get it for them.

Helping people get what they want, yes. Maybe these outlets aren’t there to define what your spirituality should be; merely to help you on your self-defined spiritual journey.

Doesn’t sound so bad now does it? Sounds better doesn’t it?

Or am I reducing/redefining the issue?

Well, that’s another head scratcher. Until I figure that out, I’m going to leave it alone.

So I guess, maybe these outlets were going to happen eventually. As more people begin to accept spirituality in their lives, there was going to be a demand for one thing or another. One that a centralized location could do the work to help you get it.

But I will say this also – Do the outlets define what your spirituality is? No. You define what it is, they get you what you need to do it.




Ps to the people who are following this blog: Thank You, so very much. I'm humbled.

    I do accept as true with all the concepts you've introduced for your post. They're really convincing and will definitely work.
    Still, the posts are very short for novices. Could you
    please prolong them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.

    Hi, River of Karma, thank you for visiting my blog earlier. I used the stores to explore different topics that I am not familiar with. In order to live my current life, I forgot a lot of past life stuff, we all do. When I became interested in reincarnation, I went to my nearest spiritual outlet, as you are calling it, and I started to remember what I already knew about past lives. Those books, and many others that I have bought over the years, enriched my spiritual journey. They were not available at my regular book stores. I accepted some of what I read and discarded other things that I read. As you said, my spiritual journey is mine and mine alone. Those books influenced my journey but I am the one to choose what I take in and what I don't. It is the same with spiritual teachers. Some I choose to follow. Others I don't. Even with those that I choose to follow, I follow only as long as they are going the direction that I need to go. Who tells me that direction? My soul tells me the direction I need to go.
