Spiritual Snobbery

Today I responded to someone’s FB post on how they are tired of people who are in the 3D and not are the higher planes like she is and so eventhough she is “supposed” to have clients, she is not helping them. I responded to her by saying that maybe if she changed her perspection of consciousness then maybe that would change her perspective on her experience. I said this with the best intentions and also telling her that this is my perspective without any judgement. She then proceeded to viciously attack me and tell me I am a “silly woman who is shallow and unevolved”. That I have no clue to what I was saying and that she had 55 years of experience even though she was clearly around that age. Nevermind the years before you could talk or walk or go through puberty and high school. NOPE, she has 55 years! I then assured her that I am not judging her and that this was just another perspective of life. She then asked me on what basis I had to say anything, not to mention, she posted publicly on FB where if you are friends you are an open post. I told her about my studies and experience and then she attacked me again and continue to post other posts on her page about my stupidity and lack of knowledge and how I am on the “Fast track” to spirituality. Another friend of hers joined the bandwagon and said that I was antagonizing when I said that there are many paths to the “one pure source” and not one is right or wrong. This comment sent them off the roof!! They both were telling me how young and stupid I was and How they can’t believe this is how a majority of people in the world think.

For the most part I was standing back thinking, The very thing they are accusing me of is the VERY THING they are doing.And they couldn’t see it. Even for someone with 55 years!! So in essence, it was humorous. But on the other hand it was sad to me, that there is this sort of separation happening in the world. I am calling it “Spiritual Snobbery.” That we are feeling “spiritual” and saying and labeling it and announcing,” I am better than you, I am smarter and more evolved than you” Did Jesus go around saying that to people? NO, he was saying that we can do the same thing that he has done. That we are equal in our makeup. how can we move forward in the world if we are comparing our Self constantly.

A few years ago I was homeless. Maybe this was part of my path but in that experience, I was able to see the world from the outside in.  I saw how some homeless were treated and how in our everyday world we separate our Self from this or try not to look at it. How society never talks about it or pretends that it doesn’t happen to people, but it does. After that, I saw the world differently. When I see homeless people, I understand that feeling, I understand those concerns and worries, they are daily, they are of meal to meal, they are of separation. And I don’t want to participate in doing that to anyone. When I see a homeless person now, I give or buy them a meal but without judging them or making any comments just saying “hey, I thought of you” and there is still good in the world and hope.
